2.2 By using the Order Online service, you represent and warrant that all information submitted via the Order Online service is correct.

Should Kia become aware that any of the information provided by you is inaccurate or false, Kia reserves its right to cease to provide you with the Order Online service and to withhold any Deposit that you have paid for the Selected Vehicle.

 

 

3. Purchase of vehicle from the Dealer

 

3.1 Kia is not selling the Selected Vehicle to you and is not a party to your interactions or transactions between you and Dealer (save for refund of the Deposit where applicable) and does not warrant the accuracy of any representations made, or information provided to you, by the Dealer in relation to the Selected Vehicle or any other product or service.

 

3.2 Once you have ordered the Selected Vehicle using the Order Online service, the Dealer will contact you to discuss your purchase.

 

3.3 Submitting a Deposit does not guarantee that you will be able to purchase the Selected Vehicle. The purchase of the Selected Vehicle is subject to availability. If the Selected Vehicle is not available, you will be entitled to a full refund of the Deposit. You may be entitled to transfer the Deposit to another vehicle, at the sole discretion of the Dealer.

 

3.4 If the Selected Vehicle is available, terms of sale must be reached with the Dealer, and a signed contract of sale entered into with the Dealer for the Selected Vehicle (Dealer Contract) within five [5] business days of the Dealer confirming that the Selected Vehicle is available.

(ii) the trade-in price and/or value of any vehicle(s) you may own that you may wish to trade-in for the Selected Vehicle; and

(c) that payment of the Deposit does not secure ownership of the Selected Vehicle.

 

4.3 Kia will hold the Deposit on trust for you pending execution of the Dealer Contract. Once the Dealer Contract has been signed, Kia will pay the Deposit to the Dealer. Kia's obligations in relation to the Deposit will then cease.
