I am not sure how this will play out but I did a little reading on my sales
contract and found two section that are applicable to my situation. They read as
10. Failure to Accept delivery or to pay.
If I fail to accept delivery of the Vehicle within 7 days of you notifying you
by registered mail that the Vehicle is available for delivery, or if I fail to
pay you the full Amount Due on Delivery, you will be entitled, in addition to
any other rights or remedies you may have, to cancel this Agreement and to
deduct the amount of your damages from my Deposit.
11. Explanation of Damages.
If you keep any part of my deposit you will provide me with a written
calculation and brief explanation of your damages.
Also according to the agreement my trade in constitutes part of the deposit.
That could be nasty!
Any thoughts? (I hope this dealership is reasonably ethical.)
If I were you I would be speaking with an attorney or at least
the folks the dealership, not asking ever expanding questions in
My advice to you on this subject, from the little amount of
information you originally provided, was based on my experience
in the retail auto business in the US, not Canada. I'm not
familial with Canadian consumer laws, sorry.

No sweat Rusty! I am grabbing at straws and I appreciate any and all advise. As
might have seen in my earlier post I had contacted a lawyer and basically his
was for me to let the dealer know that I could not buy and that I wanted my
registration back. ..... we'll see!
