i just ordered a y2k 2.3 for 1000 over invoice and the dealer gave me a production number. some other dealer told me that the deal i got is too good to be true and that the dealer is trying to take me "out of the market" meaning that when the car comes he will not sell it to me for the price negotiated. I dont think i will buy it from him if that happens but how can i protect myself. i only have a deposit of a 1000.00 i put down but am fearful that he will just return the money to me and sell the car for a profit and i will be without a car or have to wait for another 6-8 weeks to order another car.
is there anyway to protect myself? can i check that the car is being built with my options and specifications? do you think another dealer would be willing to do the latter?
