    >What's the point if they'll just give the money back if you decide not to buy?

    Because that's part of the contract. Holy shit, you really think they can just keep your money? What if your financing falls through? What if there's something wrong with the car?

    Well, yes. But if you get financing and the car is fine, you're going to buy it, so why would you complain that they keep the deposit if you then turn around and change your mind?

      I'm not talking about that, and I really don't know what the law is in that case if you get to such a late stage. I'm talking about where you give them a down-payment, and then there's something wrong with the car upon inspection, or the financing falls through; you have every right to back out and get your money back.
