Buying New Cars in Neighboring States

Sorry if this question is asked before. I've been scouring deals for a Ridgeline around the region and found that dealers in the Atlanta are giving me the best out-the-door pricing via email than anybody close to me.

With that said, Atlanta is a good 5 hour drive from me. I've never traveled that far to purchase a vehicle and was wondering if anybody has had a good or bad experience doing so? I'm a little concerned with transparency when dealing with any dealerships and I want to make sure if all possible not be jerked around or disappointing when actually walking into the dealership to purchase the vehicle.

Any advice would be helpful.

    You don't say what state you are in now, but be aware that GA dealers tend to have very high dealer/doc fees. As much as $500-$800.

    It's like doing any business over email or the internet. Get a feeling for how upfront they are in answering your questions, and giving you real, out-the-door numbers. Make sure you can pickup the car there, without paying GA tax.
