Yeah there are numerous issue with the binding contract... some states don't allow it for vehicles, some states don't allow direct sales so any agreement with Nissan is moot as your agreement and contract for sale has to be between you and the dealership, IRS guidelines has push for a large deposit or significant nonrefundable deposit with unbounded penalties for breaking the contract. The only binding agreement that I've seen that I think will hold up with the IRS is Fisker. $5000 non-refundable deposit and Fisker can charge you $2000+ for shipping if you decline it - so you are out $7000 for rejected the car.How is this a binding contract when you don’t know the price of the car. What if dealer says there a 10k uplift to the price. Your saying I have to buy it because it’s a binding contract.
