This is a big point. AS don't come "perfect" from the factory unless you are extremely lucky. You need to have service from your dealer.
Then, you need to have them fix the service they made.
Then, you need them to fix what you missed -- and fix what they screwed up again.
If I sound repetitive, its because that is my experience. Remember Lemon-Laws clauses as well and limitations. If you are buying out-of-state you use their laws, not yours.
And while you are getting that service, where are you staying? Will you save enough money when you factor in travel and hassle? If you get the factory service at a local dealer, what will your experience be from that dealer?
The original poster sounds like they are in Seattle -- you might want to investigate the satisfaction of local AS owners with this dealer. I have experience with them and you should guess from my tone what I would expect your experience might be.
