The best course of action is to make no down payment (or "deposit") until you have decided to purchase a vehicle.

If you make a down payment and later decide not to purchase the vehicle, the merchant could refuse to refund your money. Your ability to cancel the payment depends on the documents you have signed and how you were planning to pay for the vehicle.

For more information, see Cancelling a contract.
