Deposit row after car U-turn

Have your say

DENNIS Fletcher put down a £100 deposit on a car but found himself in double trouble after his wife quashed the plan.

For he claims Evans Halshaw on Penistone Road, Sheffield, said the money was non-refundable.

Dennis, aged 71, of Queensgate, Grenoside, said he returned first thing the following day so the firm wasn’t denied the chance to sell the Citroen C4 to someone else.

GARY Armstrong, of Evans Halshaw, insisted their deposits were refundable.

“When his wife said ‘no’ he told us to hang on to the deposit until he bought a car.

“We’ve now given the money back.”
