A: You can file a lawsuit seeking the return of the down payment. Carefully read all of the paperwork if any associated with the transaction that didn’t go through to determine if the down payment was non-refundable or if you have any obligation to pay for the use of the vehicle prior to its return that may offset the down payment.

If the amount of the down payment is less than $20,000, a justice of the peace court likely has jurisdiction and is likely your least expensive option.
