If you put money down and get a signed contract with the price, you are set. I'm paying MSRP for one. You don't need to worry about getting into a bidding war. I can drive it once it comes in and if I don't like it, I get my money back. It is not really a big deal - although I put money down on one in June and I'm #2 on the list.Viprman said:I'll tell you what, if you see one on the lot buy it regardless of color. It seems like these cars will be hard to come by. Or, if you can mentally do it, wait until next year when they increase production. I assume they will since most cars are already reserved. This reminds me of the PT Cruiser situation three years ago. People were putting money down and paying high mark-ups for these cars without even driving them. I would see some in the paper for about $28K and with only 5000 miles on it. I know that the dealers aren't supposed to be charging more than $19,999 but that doesn't mean you won't get into a bidding war with another customer!!! I would wait just one year until the car has had some consumer time logged onto it. There will always be little bugs and quirks with a new model and a new motor / trans combo.
