Default Buying new vehicle out of state?

Anyone done it? Pain? Easy? What about paying sales tax in that state or Texas?

U bought a pickup in Shreveport, LA once, and the dealer took care of the title work and taxes. Easy peasy, but I don't remember where taxes were paid, but only in one state. Ask your dealer.

I flew to MS to buy a vehicle last year. They picked me up at the airport drove me to the dealership. I wrote a check for the price we had agreed upon. They sent me down the road with a temp tag. I did have the dealership sign a Texas 130-U. I took it back home had it inspected, went to an auto title place, paid the sales tax and a few weeks later my plates showed up. Wasn't too difficult.

When I bought a vehicle (located in Texas but Michigan dealership) we paid 5% Michigan tax to the dealership and paid the difference here in TX when registering. You will need to get it inspected with a green sheet and take that to the registrar.

Depends on the state. If you pay in the state you bought it in, then you pay the difference in TX if it was less than 6.25%.

I've never done it but saw multiple threads on camaro6 of buyers saying how simple it was...some flew to drive home & others had them delivered.

Kinda crazy you can't find the truck you want in tx though!!

I never have, any vehicle I've wanted I have just had ordered. Can't see myself going to another state for one.

Default out of state

Bought an Ecoboost years back from Woodhouse in Blair, Ne.

Did everything over the phone / via Fed Ex. Had the truck delivered. Thanks to the poor logistics of DAS auto shippers out of Mesquite, Texas I had paid the TX tax and had my plates and registration sticker about 2 weeks before the truck showed up. They did manage to take it from Blair, to Colorado, then home to Texas without a scratch on it.

If I did it again I would have the dealer bring it to me...or fly up and drive it back. And yes - you can save that much money to make it worth it. At least at the time you could on an F150. They were honest when I was F350 and Jeep Grand Cherokee shopping and told me to get them local.

I bought my Tacoma in Colorado. Real easy deal, and they handled all Texas taxes, and mailed me my plates.

Same here---bought it in Virginia and when Uncle Sam brought me back to Texas, I paid the difference when I put Texas plates on it.
