Re: Newbie Question on Order from Dealer

I apologize in advance if these questions have already been answered. Is there an additional charge for placing a factory order? And what if you have a trade-in? Is the trade negotiated when you place the order or when the WK2 arrives? Thanks!

There is no additional charge. If anything - it should sell for less b/c the car is pre-sold and will not take up place on dealer lot for more than a couple days.

As for trade-in - I personally didn't have it but from what I read it is negotiated when placing a factory order. However, if factory order takes too long to arrive then I suppose numbers can change if you put a lot of miles on trade-in meanwhile.

My dealer said trade in would be negotiated when the WK@ arrives.

Re: Newbie Question on Order from Dealer

I had my car appraised for a trade when ordering and had him put it all in writing. I asked if the value of the trade will drop in two months when the truck comes in and he assured me it would not. So I have been racking up miles on my trade (wife's car) and letting my car sit in the garage. They are going to give you as little as possible anyway for the trade, so any value your car loses while waiting for delivery they are going to make up when they sell it. You could just tell the dealer you want to know the value of your trade now so you know how much money you are going to have down.

Re: Newbie Question on Order from Dealer

My dealer didn't give me a trade in value when I ordered either. They know it could be 4 months before you get your order, and your trade could be worth a lot less by then....

Re: Newbie Question on Order from Dealer

My dealer gave me a number for the trade in if today....he would even take my vehicle today, record the trade in at that price and settle up when the new one I ordered came in as one transaction (for sales tax reasons). Since it is my only vehicle now, I couldn't turn it over despite the decent trade in value (dealer didn't know I only had one vehicle)...renting a car for 2-3 months didn't make sense. Vehicle price can change a lot in 2-3 months so dealer can't really commit to a fair price today for a trade in in 2-3 months unless he took the vehicle today. But at least he gave me a fair price quote now and expressed a lot of interest in my vehicle since in excellent condition, etc.

Once I know approx the delivery date, I'll put my vehicle up for sale and see what I can get....if not significantly more than expected trade in, I'll just trade it in.
