Has anyone else gotten so fed up with the delays they have cancelled (or know someone who did)? And succeeded in getting the deposit back?
I understand the idea was that the deposit became nonrefundable when the order was finalized - but Tesla was also supposed to build and deliver a car. My Feb-Mar window is now 'probably' late April/May.
Anyone familiar enough with California law to confirm it leans heavily in favor of the customer on an auto deposit being refundable if the seller doesn't perform? I'm in Texas (not the most consumer-friendly state) and here a deposit is refundable practically always on a car. When you're paying a premium already, getting put off repeatedly is a lot to put up with (especially as the company celebrates hitting 400 cars/week).
