If you want to reserve a car so that no one test drives or purchases it before you, you can place a deposit on the vehicle. A $250 deposit can be placed on a credit card through your dashboard before, during, or after your test drive appointment. Placing a deposit will hold the car for 72 hours, ensuring it will not be booked for appointments and preventing others from purchasing it during this time. The deposit is not refundable or transferrable.
