Purchasing through local dealer vs traveling
I could use some advice- I am looking to lease a new Infiniti. I am in Connecticut near 2 dealers. I have decided on the model and amenities I want, but the specific color combination I would like with my specific amenity list has been difficult to find. Looking at online inventory at every dealer between Maine and DC there is only 1 car listed as I would like it- and it is at a dealer 2 hrs 45 mins from me. Is it better to work through my local dealer and hope that they can swap for the car I want, or should I try and negotiate a deal online with the dealer directly and then pick it up on a road trip. Are there additional hassles buying a car out of state? Thanks for your assistance!
