Wheels.26

Buying new car

Frank, might be time for AAA, but you have to remember I live miles
outside the areas they go, so there are surcharges...I live in the
sort of place you go fishing ;-p  If the flat happened in town or at
home I'd be fine, but if it happens halfway home in 10F at night it
could be the next day before someone drove by to help, and cell
phones don't work here.

What I am hearing is "stock tires can't be negotiated at dealer, so
you will be buying replacements from someone-not-Ford, out of pocket
(not in with your loan) and eating the stock ones."

And I had figured it would be a grand for a set of studded winter
tires, and $100 per rim.

So, no pre-purchase mechanic visit on a new rig?  I take possession
sight unseen?  That's normal?

Bianca slipped in as I was typing.

The reason they were planning to deliver was because I had test
driven a similar van they brought in from a couple hours away on
Thursday.  I then bought and signed the paperwork for a van not on
their lot -- they had to send a couple guys to Seattle (6 hours
away), and I have allergies and mobility issues that prevent me from
going to town to them (1.5 hour drive away) so delivery seemed like
a favor Thursday night as I was signing the paperwork with a huge
migraine happening from the air fresheners in the dealership
