    So I just lost my job. I think I'll need to be conservative with my finances now and won't be splurging.

    Is there any way to get that $3,500 back?

    $1,000 from my deposit on 3/31/16 and the $2,500 order on 6/28/18.

    try calling Tesla and explaining the situation instead of asking a bunch of random people to guess for you.

    Looking to sell my Model 3

    "Thanks everyone for your responses. Greatly appreciate the suggestions. Tesla agreed to just cancel the reservation and refund me the deposit. I won't have to go through the hoops of looking for a buyer now."

    If they refuse (and it would be their right to do so) your best bet would be to either eat the $3500 or keep the car (or a lesser configuration). Attempting to re-sell would mean taking on a lot more risk.

    Directly from that order agreement: "Your Order Payment is fully refundable only until your order is matched to a Vehicle, at which point it becomes nonrefundable."

    You will need to call, wait on hold for 2 hours, and ask to cancel. Hopefully they allow you.
