I am waiting on Maroone Chevrolet of Ft. Lauderdale to release a vehicle from a cash deposit someone placed on it Sat. 12-27. I was not told of this until this afternoon after my bank had completely finished the paperwork. The dealership even completed a bill of sale to them. I'm dealing with the Pembroke Pines Maroone and they too are waiting for something to happen. How long by law can the deposit hold the vehicle before I can complete my purchase?

Florida has some very specific auto statutes I noticed. Florida dealers were so bad they have a much more extensive bunch of statutes and consumer protection process than most other states because of a bad history ....I read all about it a couple weeks ago.

You can google it but IME, whenever there is "monkey business" at a dealership, walk away, there are a zillioin cars for sale in Florida just like houses. (no offense to monkeys).

It should be right on "your" contract (or a generic copy of a contract) how long the deposit is good for. Something's off with this deal.....
