I bought two vehicles at an online auction. After I bought tickets to fly there and bring them back to Florida with my dad I called and they said that auction cannot issue temp tags.

I asked how to get one. Since I was out of state, it couldn't happen since the seller could not get one. Therefore I purchased vehicles that couldn't be driven out of state legally and could only be delivered. It was because of the vehicle inspections and this auction. So I looked into getting them inspected and the people in Nashua basically said since I'm out of state I couldn't have it done without a state issued license.

It was a huge cluster phuck and by the time I had to back out of the deal it cost me about 1700 bucks.

I told them the situation that I wanted to get them out of the state and basically said, "then drive them illegally back to Florida and take the chance... Complete bull****.

I was born in NH in Merrimack (Hillsborough County). We lived in Merrimack. Love the people from there but that REALLY pissed me off.

I don't really consider myself a Yankee though as I only lived there for 2-1/2 years and moved to Florida 34 years ago.

I still love the state though and still have family friends we visit and come visit us. Just not a fan of their DOT.

Re: New Or Nearly New


Finance it at 0%
Make the first payment of $20k.
Then you won't have very many $600 payments to go till it's paid off.

This is just thinking out loud here. I've never done anything like that, or considered doing anything like that.

When I pay cash, I go in and say, "I don't want to spend a lot of time talking to you" "What's your bottom dollar cash and let's get this over with"

When I finance, I go with the fleet sales department, cuz there's less BS with that guy.

Right after I bought my Titan XD another guy bought one and jacked it up and put rims and stuff on it... No thanks, the damn beds are already high enough.

I do still miss my dually though, except traffic and stick shift suck ass.

If it means anything I bought mine with a little less than 20k mile's on it (it's a '17) and I got close to 25k off sticker because it has some dings.
Agree.
Ram way over built in 2017. Their new design 2019 is ready to start rolling on to lots.
There are deals out there easily $10,000- 15,000 off list and you get a new vehicle with full warranty.
I have even seen used for sale, for more than new leftovers.

So they do have 0% financing on this vehicle. Haven't gone to any dealerships yet. Still figuring out my game plan. Some good ideas so far on here.

The only reason to go to a dealer is to pick a paint color and features, plus test drive if needed. What ever you do, DO NOT give them your phone number. Do all negotiations by email.

Re: New Or Nearly New


Ended up getting brand new. Went to a couple of places and also saw what others had advertised and what others paid online. Salesman at second place was still pretty green, there for only 2 months, and itching for a sale. I knew more about the truck-than him. I've read tons and was at other places so I knew exactly what's standard and extra with this model.

After we agreed to price Monday he brought around the Z71 for me to look at that actually had tons of upgrades. The other places didn't even have this version on their lots. The color, running boards, cromed tip exhaust, bug deflector, bed liner, and a special grill. I asked him if this was the exact one I'd be getting he said yes. This was Monday and was gonna pick it up yesterday but it snowed.

I knew this guy f -ed up but he hadn't called me yet so figured got away with it. I get the call this morning while waiting for their courtesy car to pick me up that he screwed up and wouldn't be able to get this truck for the price. All the extras added to over 2k Told him he's out of his %#%ing mind if he thinks I'm paying for his screw up. (Some might think this was all intentional but he was real new and wasn't the vibe I got )

Im pretty easy going but was in rare this morning. Told him to keep the phucking truck and I'll be sure to let everyone know what kind of chit you guys pull there( actually have 8 dealerships and a pretty stellar reputation)

I wanted this exact truck. Made the others I looked at look budget. I wasn't willing to go elsewhere and pay a lot more for this exact one so told him to go talk with his manager and see what they can do for me since it really does look like a bait and switch and is pretty plucked up. Ended up paying $600 extra for all these upgrades which was cool with me.

For extra couple dollars a month got the upgraded version. Happy as hell with the purchase. Glad i shopped around a bit and knew what I was looking at.

Nice looking truck! How do you like driving it so far? I need an upgrade as well since I decide to get rid of my winter beater 97 Corolla that wonít die and my 99 s10. Not sure if I want to go with a smaller Colorado truck or not

Thanks. Yea just got it this afternoon so still figuring out all the electronics. I went from an f150 to the frontier and liked being in a smaller truck for zipping around looking at jobs. Was gonna try to wait for the ranger but too impatient.

I am struggling with going with a mini truck or getting a new 2500. I could use a heavier duty truck since we currently use and abuse our 1500s by overloading the chit out of them. I am thinking about driving the 2500 personally for a while and slowly turning it into a work vehicle.

I just hate giving up cars that barely use any fuel to driving daily a pig that gets 12 mpg.

Of coarse when I need to up my man card for the day I can always pull the queen out of the garage to Cruze for chicks.....unfortunately they usually look at me like Iím an old pervert! Haha
