I love my car, I really do. I also love money, I really do. So let me share w/ you some quick advice on how ‘helpful’ car dealers can cost you thousands later:

If you buy a used car in Massachusetts, you must pay sales tax, no matter where you live or take that car. The dealer will not drive this point home, because it raises the visibility of the overall cost to you. You are on your own, so follow through on this. If you don’t, and ever decide to move to Massachusetts, you will pay a massive penalty fee for unpaid taxes.

According to the state, this happens all the time, and not much can be done about it. Well, I think raising awareness about it is a good start. You’ve been warned!
