vehicles are hideously expensive up here in Bozeman so I have purchased my last 3 vehicles out of state and unseen. I have only purchased from reputable dealerships and have utilized car fax for vehicle history. I ask a lot of questions and have the salesman take a lot of pictures. I put a deposit down of course but nothing gets signed and actually purchased until I get to the lot and see the vehicle in person.
I am straight forward with the salesman on what I expect and how I am going to do the sale. so far I have been very lucky and have been nothing but pleased. not everyone is going to be lucky though so one must be careful and diligent . if you can find a good salesman which I have been fortunate with a few times the deal is a piece of cake and you can get a great deal at a fantastic price. good luck with your vehicle hunting and be patient.

We bought our F-150 from a Ford store about 300 miles from home. I found it on the AutoTrader and worked out the deal via email and several phone calls. But nothing was final until I got to the dealer and saw the truck up close and took it for a drive.

If it didn't work out, we would have been out the time and expense of traveling to the dealership, in our case a entire Saturday. But to me it was worth the effort.

I'm finding the same thing here in PA. I'm not a rookie at vehicle buying, but I just can't wrap my head around what these things cost now. My wife keeps telling me that I am just cheap, but I have a fundamental problem paying more for a vehicle than I did for our first house.
