Are you paying MSRP for your Pilots? Did you have a trade in? Did you have to negotiate with the salesperson? Did you have to take any extras you didn't want? Would you recommend the dealerships you are taking the car from?
Thanks for your response.
I am looking at purchasing an EX-L with DVD in black or silver with a trade. So far, dealers want nearly $1K over sticker.
Men it has been a tuff battle. Yesterday I was told I just need to pay $25 temp. registration and not pay California taxes. So I went ahead and bought my airline tix and made arrangement with them to pick me up.
Got a call this morning, I will still be paying for the taxes........ I was NOT happy. He said, he will pay for my tix because they are not refundable. After talking to him about 15 times today this is where we're at...............
They will truck in my vehicle to my house or work for $400 bucks and he will pay $100 out of that (compensation for my airline tix)......so tomorrow I should have my PILOT! I am keeping my fingers crossed. A $200 truck in company was not available till next week...........
Definitely good luck to you. I don't understand what their beef is. Vehicle taxes are due to the state in which the vehicle will be registered (your home state). Typically the dealers are required to charge the tax at purchase and will charge you at your state's tax rate (down to the county if there is a difference) and they mail that check to your state along with the title paperwork. I've been through this numerous times. Sounds like they don't have their act together. Oh well, the trouble will all be worth it once you get behind the wheel, crank up the tunes, and go hit the town. Again, good luck bud!
