Huntington Honda New York Complaint - Deposited check unlawfully

Review by beth3 on 2009-11-13
HUNTINGTON, NEW YORK -- We were asked to give a $3000 check to the dealer for the $238/monthly lease promotion on a 2009 CRV. It was a SUnday so they had to process on Monday. They called to say we didn't qualify for that promotion but offered a substantially higher monthly lease. We declined and were shocked to learn they had deposited the check already. We have been trying to get the $3000 back for the last two weeks-always getting some story. Now I need a lawyer! For the last 25 years I have had BMW's and Chryslers-I went with a Compass (Jeep) and I love it I have never had a problem with any other car dealership. BEWARE HUNTINGTON HONDA

Did they call that same day? Was it later in the week?
How did they unlawfully deposit your check?

I went through the same thing with a Hyundai in Albany. They said they could get the car I wanted and I should give them $1000, which I did. The next morning they called and said they could not get the car I wanted but could get a more expensive model. I said "no thanks". They had already deposited my check and would not return my money until the check cleared their bank. It took several weeks and I needed that money for a down-payment on the Honda I decided to buy.
