Any experience purchasing a car that's still in transit?
Is it possible/legal in Minnesota to purchase or "sign out" on a new vehicle before it has arrived at the dealer?
The reason I'm looking at doing this is to get a manufacturer incentive before it expires, but my car of choice is still in transit.
The sales rep at the dealership getting the car has assured me we can simply complete the contract before the manufacturer incentive expires (before the car shows up) to get me the $ off. The car has been allocated to the dealer and has been in transit since 12/21, was originally scheduled to show up 12/26-12/30, but now been pushed to 1/3-1/8. The Toyota-offered $500 off expires 1/2.
There is another dealer who has one on the lot (40 min away) but it's $190 more and they won't budge on price.
Worth the runaround/worry??
