Q1) When I purchase a car, where do I pay my taxes and registration?
Answer: It does not matter where you purchase your car, but where it will be registered. The taxes you pay will be paid to the State and County of registration. For example, if you reside in Albany County, but buy your car in Warren County, you will still pay the sales taxes assessed by your county of residence. If you live outside of NYS, then your taxes will be paid to the state in which you register your vehicle.
Q2) What is a dealer processing fee and why does it vary by dealer?
Answer: The dealer processing fee is not a mandatory state fee; rather, it is a fee assessed by the dealer to cover the costs of administering your paperwork/transaction. It varies from dealer-to-dealer because there is no standard amount charged. However, most states do have a legal limit as to how much can be charged.
Q3) I plan to pay cash! Can I get a better deal because I am not financing?
Answer: No. Though we cannot speak for other dealers, at North Country Subaru you will get the same selling price whether you pay cash or finance your new or pre-owned car.
Q4) I want to order a specific car. Will it cost more to order a car?
Answer: This question poses many variables; ultimately, the answer is: No, an ordered car does not cost more than one already in-stock. Of course, there are some criteria to this. If the car you order is the exact same model, trim and options, but perhaps just a different color, then the two cars will have the same price. If the ordered car has more options or is a different model or trim, then the two prices will be different. Ultimately, there is no added cost to a factory ordered car.
Q5) If I order a car, (a) how long will it take and (b) do I have to leave a deposit?
Answer: There are many factors that affect both parts of this question:
(a)The time it takes for an ordered car to arrive at the dealership is contingent on which factory the car is made in, which model line it is, and what time of the year it is ordered. For instance, if the ordered model is in high demand the arrival time may take longer than a car that is not as highly demanded.
(b) A non-refundable deposit may be required for a factory ordered car if it is deemed to be a non-stocked inventory item by the sales manager.
