Looks like just talking about it did the trick, Genesis of Arapahoe has just been issued their dealer code so Colorado is on the watchlist.
I actually just sent a message to Genesis asking if I would be able to get service here in Colorado if no dealers opened. I am looking at a specific combo as well so out-of-state may be in my future still as well.we'll see how it goes down and when they get cars. no opposed to going to another state to get the model and color i want as long as local service is available.
was really expecting that colorado dealers were going to wait until an SUV was available, i understand how 3 sedans isnt very enticing here in the middle of winter taboot.
leasing out of state in colorado can be an issue depending on the state of origin. Cars from out of state in Colorado need a vin verification from a colorado dealer. I have already had a couple of dealers from other states say they will not transport the car to me until it is registered since it is a lease and Hyundai finance owns the car. Since I can't register the car without a vin verification and I can't get them to send the car it becomes a viscous circle.Buying out of state is easy, but service is a potential problem due to distance. The concierge is limited to about 50 miles. How far is the nearest dealer and how far are you willing to drive for an oil change or warranty repair?
Of course, they may eventually put a dealer 5 miles from you but right now it is a crap shoot.
My response:cool, let us know what they say if you get a reply
Stopped by Arapahoe yesterday and got the same answer, July. Josh @ Arapahoe learned from me that they had their license and had to verify it with someone else. Seems like that would be something you would announce to your staff, LOLI got an email reply to a website form inquiry from Marcus @ Arapahoe who says they dont expect cars until July. I have inquired as to when he may know their allocation of trims and colors and what's being delivered.
Very different from the dealer I worked at. It was best price and the salesperson was also your finance person. In that situation the sales team knows price and has to be an expert on the programs and financing. Most of all, they ought to know and learn about a line of vehicles they are going to sell.There evidently is not a lot of information sharing at some dealers. Early on in this process I was emailing with a salesman in VA and quite a few times he told me that I was giving him info that he hadn't heard before. He said many times they are not aware of all of the offers, programs, etc. I'm wondering if it is a way for the dealerships to try and make some extra money, only the sales manager knows them and will apply them if the person asks. Then again, could just be poor management and communication.
