    I've never financed a car before so I apologize if this is a dumb question.

    i'm currently financing a new S via Alliant and have been approved. If I were to refuse delivery at the delivery center and forego my $2500 deposit what happens to the check from Alliant. That will probably have been already delivered to Tesla right?

    Any suggestions on how to ease the cancellation if it's done the day of delivery?

    Not a dumb question at all. If you've never financed a vehicle, how would you not have questions.

    Part of the delivery of the car is signing the Alliant loan documents. Tesla gets no check from Alliant until you sign the contract agreeing to pay Alliant back on the terms they offered you. Yes, you'd lose the $2,500, but you wouldn't start getting a bill for loan payments from Alliant. If you don't want the car, just call your Delivery Specialist and tell them. I'm sure they'll tell you what you need to do to properly cancel your order.

    That's actually done pre-delivery in my case. I signed my documents online the day I made my delivery appointment. I'm not sure if you can arrange to have them signed in person at delivery since there is no Alliant rep present.

    Then, I'd contact the Alliant loan rep you worked with and ask them.
