Sorry about he bad luck. Interestingly, we purchased our Encore on 10/24/13. We live in Virginia, but purchased it in Delaware because of there being so few available. If I remember correctly, when we got ours there were less than 10 in the country that were trimmed out how we wanted it. Dealer said buying out of state should be easy, they do it all the time... we paid VA sales tax to the DE dealer who was to forward it to VA who would then send us our plates. The DE dealer gave us a 60 temp tag which expired 12/23/14- I've been renting a Lincoln MKX AWD for my wife since that day.And yea it sucked when someone backs up into my brand new vehicle that I only had since 10/25/13.
