DO YOU LIVE OUT OF STATE AND LOOKING TO PURCHASE FROM MISSION BAY?
All customers intending to purchase from out of state should read the following:
Can I title and register the Mission Bay Volkswagen vehicle I purchase outside the state of California?
We would love to sell you a vehicle, however, many states and financial institutions have varying regulations and requirements, making it difficult, or even impossible. We can only Title and Register vehicles in California. Please contact your state for title and registration requirements for out of state purchases.
Will you ship me the vehicle?
We do not ship vehicles, you will need to supply your own transportation.
How would I sign the documents?
Documents may be shipped for pen signed documents
Pricing and rebates?
The advertised pricing for the new vehicles on our website and other medias is after all Volkswagen incentives applicable to residents of the San Diego Region. Volkswagen may offer different incentives for your home address; therefore the pricing may be different.
What about taxes?
Most states, but not all states, are “reciprocal” with California for sales tax. Please contact your state on how they handle out of state purchases. If you take delivery in California, we will collect our local 7.75% sales tax. If the vehicle is being shipped, sales tax may not be collected but a bill of lading will need to be collected showing the destination is out of the state of California at the time of pick up.
Can I register any Mission Bay Volkswagen vehicle in my home state?
Some states have different emission requirements than California.
Can I finance with my bank or credit union?
**Funds must clear our dealership’s bank account before delivery occurs. **
Drafts, letters of credit, cashier’s checks, or funds on hold will not be accepted on out of state deals.
Customer payment in full is only accepted in cash; personal checks less than $50,000 AND must approved by our check guarantee company; US business checks less than $50,000 (if purchased in the name of a company) AND must be approved by our check guarantee company; wire; or US debit card. We will also be happy to assist you with financing.
What about insurance?
You will be required to provide state and VIN specific insurance and driver’s licenses from your state. All of these items must match the address of your new registration.
What if I am not returning home soon?
No problem, unless your home state requires a vehicle/emissions inspection in your home state before they will title and register the vehicle.
Can I handle my own title and registration?
Yes, if you purchase a preowned vehicle with immediately available certified or wired funds. No, if your purchase any new vehicle, or financed preowned vehicle. Lenders require the dealership provide proof of registration and lien record. Volkswagen requires proof of registration matching any incentives received.
What about additional fees charged by my state?
There are a few states that will not/cannot give us the amount of local/city/county/ state fees, sales tax, ad valorem tax, or use tax. For the same reasons as in the above answer, we would not be able to deliver the vehicle.
How long will it take to receive my new registration?
Each state varies greatly on how fast they process out of state titles and registration. If you must provide emissions, state inspection, ad-valorem or paid property tax-fees-assessments receipts, this will increase the processing time. Our goal, if we have all the documents, is to complete the registration within 60 days.
