My mum purchased a new car 27/02/2021 with a $1,000 deposit.
She received an email on 24/03/2021 from the dealer with the following message: "I have looked in the Toyota system and it is still at Plan production. It states May (yet to be confirmed)".
She received another email on 01/04/2021 stating that due top COVID-19 there are delays in the manufacturing process.
The online portal for the manufacturers delivery information states pick up on 09/07/2021.
My mum is having second thoughts on the purchase and I have been reading through the contract, specifically this clause: "If the Dealer has not delivered the motor vehicle to the Purchaser within thirty (30) days of the estimated delivery date, the Purchaser may by notice in writing to the Dealer rescind this Contract."
Any way she can get out of this purchase? She does not mind losing the $1,000 deposit. It's not a big deal if she cannot get out of the contract as she likes the car however would like the option if she has it.
