Hi Roger,When I ordered a 2020 Iconic Silver XLT the dealer didn't take a deposit or even write up a sales order. Strange. Is that the way they do things now for orders? Last time I ordered a car was 1973! We just corresponded by email and telephone. Got all the details of the pricing on emails. Due to be built 7/20/20.
Dealers are funny about deposits. If the dealer knows if you back out of the deal he/she can still sell it with no problem they won't require a deposit in some cases. If you order something that is not a hot seller...probably a deposit is required, eg a Mary Kay Ranger in pink...
