How do you choose a dealership to do business with? Seriously!!! I have dealt with 2 and both turned out bad. I found the perfect TH but it was in another state. I was willing to pay shipping to get it here. But when the paperwork arrived it stated sold AS IS. Then the next paragraph stated disclaimed any warranties. I was concerned and advised by 4 people, one being my financial adviser not to purchase from them with that contract. So I am back to local and ordering and waiting my 4 months. Is that standard wording in a contract?? I have not bought a new vehicle in 30 years. Is that wording like that for any legit reason?

That seems to be standard on most automotive contracts. Check at the bottom for this statement.
"This provision does not affect any warranties covering the vehicle that the vehicle manufacturer
may provide".

Most contracts are a standard from used on both new and used vehicles. Note that it does give
the buyer the right to enter into a service contract through the dealer.

This. If it indemnifies the dealer, it's not so much a big deal. If it tries to void any and all warranties, it's a big deal.

You bumper to bumper/powertrain warranty is between you and the manufacturer. Where you are altering the norm by long distance sale are assumptions of merchantability. So where a local dealer might normally accept the risk that upon delivery, you inspect the vehicle and refuse delivery for any number of things, the long distance seller doesn't want that vehicle to ever return. This is normal, but should be understood as to how it alters the sale.

Myself, I've gotten vehicles from hundreds of miles away, but only under two conditions. 1) they do a dealer swap, and I'm not involved. 2) I just go, buy a vehicle form the other dealer and make a road trip out of getting it home.
