    Question about the ordering process?

    I'm planning on ordering the 2014 Acadia when the ordering book opens in this year. How does the whole ordering vs buying off the lot process shake out?

    Would I negotiate my price and put my down payment and financing in place at the time the order is placed (thus making payments prior to receiving the vehicle).

    Or would I negotiate my purchase price, and then when the Acadia is delivered that is when I give the dealership my down payment and financing/payments would begin?

    Usually you give a deposit when you order the vehicle, and negotiate the price at that time. You don't make payments until after you take delivery of the vehicle.

    really? ive never ordered a car before, but i figured you would negotiate once it is delivered. available incentives apply at the time of delivery and not at the time of order, dont they? if so, how could you negotiate a price if the incentives may be different by the time its delivered? or does the negotiated price not include possible incentives or a trade-in?

    The negotiated price never includes incentives on an ordered vehicle. Too much can change.
