Hello All -- I've read some good posts with recommendations for dealer selection, and I thought I'd start one where we can specify the dealer contact information, etc. After contacting a number of dealers in my local area (Portland metro area, Oregon), and receiving a truly mixed bag of responses about whether reservation holders would be charged MSRP, MSRP plus $10000 (wow), and whether surprise accessories would be added without the customer's control (more wow), I wanted to share my experience with other forum members. I changed my dealer selection to Chuck Colvin Ford Nissan located in McMinnville, Oregon. While McMinnville is a little outside of the metro area, I really appreciated their commitment to no markups for reservation holders, and no surprise accessories nonsense! I've added their contact info below for other Portland area forum members if interested. If any other forum members have knowledge that you'd like to share about other good dealer choices in the area, and for other metro areas and states, please do!
Dealer recommendation for Portland, Oregon metro area:
