: Any good dealers near Seattle? I have sort of a crazy scenario that might work out.

I think I'm going to order a coupe in the next couple of weeks.
I'm in California but we're planning on taking sort of a crazy vacation in July.
We are going to Fly to Vancouver, take a train ( I think it's called the Rocky Mountain Express) to Whistler, spend the night up there, take a helicopter over to the glacier and land, fly back to Whistler, take a seaplane back to Vancouver and then a train to Seattle.
Then I'd like to pick up my new V and drive down the coast and back to California. If I could make the timing work, that would be cool.
We were going to rent a car and drive back but this would be MUCH better.
I actually found one up there but after talking to the sales person, I found that they changed the price on their website significantly. (must have been a misprint or something) I thought about buying that one now and having them store it.
If anyone knows of a decent dealer anywhere in the Pacific Northwest, let me know.
I think If I order it in the next week or so, I can make this work.

Well I really can't comment on how good of a dealer they are yet, but I just bought a 6MT Wagon from Doug's Northwest Cadillac in Shoreline WA (Seattle) this past weekend. If you have another week or two I can be more helpful.

And once I have enough posts I can PM you the Internet sales guy I dealt with's contact info...

I bought mine at Doug's back in 2009, and I wasn't very thrilled with their sales dept. But they were a Costco dealership at the time and I was trying to save a few bucks. After I found out others were getting better deals elsewhere, I tried to back out of my order with them, and found out that, in this state, if you back out of a deal, they don't have to refund your deposit, ( if any), and I had made a fairly hefty one. They advised that they would be keeping the deposit if I terminated the deal. Also, they refused to honor GM employee priceing even though I'd had obtained authorization. All in all, the experience left a lousy taste in my mouth. I get my service done at Brotherton Cadillac in Renton, WA., because they are closer to where I live, and they seem to be a good dealership. Don't have experience with their sales dept. however.

Is there something special that you need to order one. Most of the dealers in the seattle area have at least one in stock. You can do a search for all the v's within 200 miles of seattle and see what is in stock. Then contact dealer and go from there.
