Cancelled Magnite booking, dealer cheque dishonoured TWICE

I cancelled a Nissan Magnite booking from Youwe Nissan Delhi, but to my utter surprise, the Nissan dealer's refund cheque has bounced twice!

Devender Vats recently shared this with other BHPians.

I would like to share my experience with a Nissan Magnite booking and hope it would be beneficial to others.

I booked a Magnite XE with the assurance from dealer (Youwe Nissan, Bhikaji Cama Place, New Delhi) to get it delivered by March 2021. However, when mails started rolling to the customers, I was told the vehicle would be delivered "after July 2021". When I contacted the dealership, they said that XE cannot be provided and another vehicle could be provided only if I upgrade the booking to the top variants. Obviously, since that was a U-turn from their original promise and I did not want to spend about Rs. 8 lakhs on a vehicle equipped with a 1.0L engine, I submitted my request for cancelling the booking and refund of the booking amount.

After regular chasing and about three weeks later, I was provided with a refund cheque of Rs. 11,000/-. When I deposited the cheque in my bank account, to my utmost surprise, it was dishonoured. I contacted the dealership again, which advised me to present the cheque again. The cheque bounced again and cheque return charges were also deducted by the bank.

Thereafter, I have been constantly chasing the dealer asking them to transfer the amount directly to my account. Even after providing all the details & them promising each day that it would be done by the evening, I have not received the refund amount till now.

Since I foresee some misadventure and bad intention from the dealer as they are continuously making excuses, I would like to share this with all.

Thanks to Devender Vats once again! Check out BHPian comments for more insights & information.
