I need to buy a car. I have already decided on the model (Honda--not SF approved, but not up for discussion, either). I am wondering if I should buy in DC, MD, or VA? Where are the taxes lowest? Any recommended dealers?

Thanks.

Regardless of where you buy, taxes will be assessed based on where you live. I lived in SC back in '04 and bought a new car in Gaithersburg, MD; I was charged appropriate to my state and county of residency down south. My experiences with Fitzgerald Auto Mall were fantastic -- got a new car (albeit a rarer, poorly-selling stickshift model) for an internet-published price about 30% below MSRP. They are not, however, a Honda dealer. Good luck!

Oh. That sucks--I think DC taxes are super high. Thanks, though.

Thread brings back fond memories of college. Is there still a Koons dealership down there? My (black) roommate used to get all fired up whenever their ads came on tv. When I would remark that it was probably just a family name, he would remind me that I was one of the 95% (this number varied but was always north of 90) of white people who were racist.
Good times!

should you be worrying about DC taxes? I doubt there are many dealerships actually in the district

Nobody buys cars within the district. Just NoVa and MD. the dealerships around here are like any other suburban strip type operation

call all the honda dealerships around. you dont need to be there to negotiate if you are buying new. dont be afraid to hang up on sales ppl, wait for a rainy day or the end of the month.
