I'm a first time car buyer. So I've never had to deal with waiting lists. How do I get my name on one. Is it as simple as telling the dealer I want this car? Do I have to make a down payment or holding fee?Do I have to start paying for it while I'm on the waiting list? I've heard that dealers can still sell your car to someone else dispite the waiting list. Has this happened to anyone and how do I avoid it? I'm sure this has been answered numerous times, but be gentle to the newbie.
