We’ll explore not only the drawbacks, but the benefits of buying a car online vs. from a lot, and car price guarantees. Keep reading to learn more with Cornerstone Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.



Benefits of Buying a Car Online with Cornerstone Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

Anoka shoppers have been wondering, can you order a new car in a custom color? And what are the benefits of buying a car online? Right now, buying a car online poses a few benefits, including:

  1. You eliminate the stress of driving to different dealerships around Anoka to find the perfect car.
  2. There’s additional flexibility with your budget, because you are able to opt-out of features that may bring an additional cost, or choose the features you want.
  3. Can you order a new car in a custom color? Yes, you can! Ordering a car online gives you the freedom to create the vehicle to your liking. You can choose features, interior appointments, colors, and exterior colors.

The benefits of buying a car online are things like customization and savings. If you don’t order online, you’ll find the market for new cars limiting. This could mean if you want something specific, you’ll be waiting around for inventory to get back up and prices to stabilize. If this is the case, it’s worthwhile to order online and get your vehicle exactly as you want.

Guide for How to Order a New Car Online

The steps for how to order a new car online are simpler than you’d think. Many manufacturers are streamlining this process so it takes place on the OEM site. All you need to do is go to the site, click on the vehicle you want, and choose the build option. Depending on the site, it will say something along the lines of “Build & Price”. Then you can choose your trim level, engine, interior and exterior colors and appointments, and so much more. After you have finished designing your vehicle, the site will use your zip code to find a dealership near Coon Rapids. The site will prompt you to provide personal information so that our finance department can get in contact with you

How Long Does it Take to Order a New Car in Elk River?

How long does it take to order a new car? We can’t give you a solid answer at the moment. Due to the truck driver shortage and chip shortage, things are taking a bit longer than usual. What once would’ve taken a few weeks, now takes months. However, you can chat with our team to get a better idea of what the time period will look like for the specific vehicle you’re ordering.

What if You Don’t Buy a Car Online?

A concern some of our customers have mentioned is regarding price protection or the availability of a car price guarantee. Rogers shoppers can rest easily knowing that you will get the price and incentives that were in place at the time of ordering. You’ll also be secure knowing that you have price protection or incentive protection, meaning that if a new price or incentive comes up at the time of payment you’ll be able to receive a refund or the cost will be adjusted to the lower price.
