My dealer is 431 miles from my house........
But I saved over $2700 from any local dealers within 100 miles that had my model or comparable(not many had a model I preferred).
I did spend about $1000 on the trip out and back but made it into a "mini vacation/extended PDI" weekend before coming home. (if it wasnt for things like beer, steak, and fireworks I would spent around $750)
So I've saved $1700 and haven't needed warranty service yet. (knock on wood, fingers crossed, and all that).
