Can a dealership give you your money back?
When the car is returned, the dealer must give you a full refund. This includes sales tax, registration fees, deposit and return of your vehicle. If the dealer sold your trade-in, they must refund the fair market value or the value stated in the contract.
The dealer who sold you the car is usually not legally obligated to take the car back and issue you a refund or exchange after you’ve signed the sales contract. Some dealerships may allow you to return the vehicle if you’re unsatisfied or if the car has major mechanical issues, but only under special circumstances.
Can you get back your car dealership deposit?

When to give a dealer a cash deposit?

Can You get Your deposit back after signing a contract?

This means whether you can get your deposit back after signing a contract will depend on the dealer’s policy.
