Special Orders are OK

If you want a particular color or option that your dealer doesn’t happen to have on the lot, you don’t have to settle for what the dealership has in stock. Dealerships routinely buy cars from other dealerships or order specific models from the factory. But watch out if you do decide to let your dealer locate a car for you, and never sign anything until you’ve had a chance to personally inspect the actual car you’ll be buying. You should never pay more for a car you had special ordered than you would have if it had been sitting on the lot.
