Hi Chris. If your sales contract is for a specific car (chassis number or registration number shown on the order form) and that specific car is no longer available, you are entitled to get your money back and walk away. You don’t have to accept another vehicle.
If the order form does not specify a specific vehicle and simply details a particular specification, you would not be entitled to cancel unless there were no other vehicles of that exact specification available.
