Hi,
After looking deeply in the mirror and seeing how much I was missing in my Plaid compared to the GT and seeing what a great offer 100k on used GT with very little sales tax on trade………I took the leap and became a used 22 GT owner. That said today I cancelled my Air Touring order that I had held since 8/21. What I would say is just cause you cancel a Lucid order doesn’t mean you can’t be a future Lucid owner. The used market is ripe with deals just have to seek and negotiate.

They did refund my 1000$ which was a nice gesture by Lucid. I did not expect that.
It also has 3 years EA charging free.

I had an Air GT on order, bought a used Air GT instead for $30K less. But Lucid did not refund my $1000. How did you talk them into it? I know it was the letter of the agreement, but they had not even started to build the car yet, delivery was still months away after months of waiting already. Left a poor impression on me. I probably won't buy another Lucid for a very long time. Pennywise imho. I even asked if they would move the non-refundable deposit to a Gravity, and they refused. So bought an iX instead. Dumb way to make $1000.

They told me they wouldn’t refund me and I said fine cancel the order so it might have been dumb luck. Did you buy the used Lucid then cancel?

I asked for a refund when I cancelled, they just said no, that was not what the contract said, and they are technically right. I had just bought the used one a day before. Possibly my car was further along than yours, maybe they were already ordering parts or whatever. But even buying a used Lucid is good for Lucid, so I expected they would at least let me transfer the deposit to a future new Lucid vehicle. I thought that was a fair compromise, but no luck. I still saved quite a bit so no big deal. But unlikely I buy a Gravity now.

It's amazing there are $140K+ MSRP AIR cars out there with 1k - 2k miles for $110K or so, some even less. That's quite a hit. I think a used Air is the best deal in town right now!

Is this Infinity Black or Quantum Grey?!

Anyway, congratulation! What a great deal you got there!

I didn't get my refund either, they did try though, but upper management said no. Oh well.

Congrats though and great deal! I'm also a used GT owner at 119k, Zenith Red

Congratulations! I’ve always liked purchasing a car with a few miles on it to help knock off some early depreciation. Those getting their cars today are having a far better experience than those of us who purchased with UX V.1 Enjoy!

I cancelled my Pure order. I did not ask for a refund. The original deposit was refundable. I chose to make it non refundable and, IMO, I had no right to a refund. Interestingly, Lucid refunded me the deposit anyway.

While the refund was a nice touch, I don't see how one can get angry at Lucid for simply following the customer decision to make the deposit not refundable.
