Is my dealer the only one still promoting 2021 cars? I would think that by now, they would only have 2022.

What type of car? What's your budget?

You might be better off out of the tri State.

You sound like the type of guy the salesman like 😀.

Im looking at the g70 and ilx but open to other small sportyish sedans.
Out of tri state meaning calling random dealerships or is there a better way to do that?

My last time buying was before COVID, so things may be different now. I also had some flexibility in terms of timing (My car at the time was still running). I emailed a bunch of different dealerships and went back and forth, having them bid for the lowest price. Many insisted I come in person, I ignored that.

I may be very wrong, but if you can't get a *out the door* price by phone or email then go on to the next dealership.

Look into Buying through Costco. Many dealers are marking up well above msrp, and the Costco pricing is usually around msrp. Not all dealers and models are included though.

in your  scenario I'd recommend doing the factory order from a dealer most will do MSRP. If one closest won't do it call around also find that all fees beforehand

Leasehackr is dealer brokers, not sellers.

Do you know of a dealer that would be willing to do MSRP for a factory order? I'm looking for one. Ut so far haven't been successful. Thanks
