Not sure about your deposit, BUT if you have signed a contract stating the final price, they CANNOT charge you extra.
How much deposit did you put down? And if they become an arse, could you afford to loose the deposit and tell them to stick it. Do you have written paper work from last August ?
BUT if you have the original agreement with a SET price, that's your contract with them, and both of you have to abide by that agreement (contract) if either you or them have changed anything within the four corners of that contract, the other have the right to cancel that contract !!
if still not sure where you stand, go down to your nearest citizens advice bureau, they'll put you straight, they DON'T charge, but you can leave a small donation. I think that's your best option ! Remember to take all paper work with you.
please let us know how you get on ?

Well I put down the 200 deposit to actually order the car. I had a written up financial agreement sent over to me as a deposit kind of thing showing the vehicle price my deposit left to pay that kind of thing. But nothing signed as I haven't been there yet. They haven't done anything or said anything about the price yet and hopefully they will accept what it is as when I ordered the car was around 17k now its 20k everywhere

If you have written proof that you agreed on a price of £17,000 they CANNOT put the price up, that's your contract.
So have you been back and asked them if they are still keeping to the original price, or are you just panicking they might increase the price??

I'm not panicking about it just wanted to know if they can or not so that when I go there I'm not put in a crap situation. If they do I'll take my money back anyway I won't pay the new price haha

Hello new to the group been reading some comments and wanted to put my pence in.

Ordered last year end of October have had a call telling me my car has been shipped and estimated August.

Can anyone answer that if I Ordered it back then and placed a deposit and then received a pre contractual agreement thing(Sorry not got a clue for the terminology).

As the car is alot more expensive than the price quoted to me and agreed when putting down my deposit. Will I be entitled to that price or is there a way around it for them to turn me down trying to make more out of me or someone else if I decide not to go ahead with my order because of it.

Thank you for any input
I dont think theres a contract for delivery as all manufacturers cannot give exact dates. So the paperwork is preliminary only.
Like my car was promised for June..then august..now september.
I would assume..the terms you and the dealer agreed over price..should be honoured ...because of consumer protection rights..and you signed to that
So i would contest it..if the price increased..however i ordered via mobility..and if my monthly payments increase..they can keep it...but good luck anyway.

My new HS Excite arrived 6 months after ordering in Jan 22 without DAB radio ( however with cable & ariel attachment ) with the promise of upgrade when available.
Not a deal breaker but annoying nevertheless as MG have a great car but will need to up its game with small customer niggles....I also had to call AA to diagnose a very rough idle speed that fortunately turned out to be a disconnected hose from the brake servo unit , again not a big deal but it was only 2 weeks old !!..
Good luck everyone....

I wouldn‘t strongly argue about the logic already reinforced here that the signed for price has to be honoured, but the devil is in the detail ( small print) and you may (just may) find a clause there that will state the final selling price will be dictated by the retail price at the point of delivery/sale.
