Steet Ponte Lincoln Frequently Asked Questions
1. When does my registration come in?
This is one of our most frequently asked questions at all of our stores! Unfortunately, we have no say in when the registration comes in, it's all up to the DMV. Your temporary registration is good for 45 days, and we will notify you by sending you a postcard when your permanent one comes in.
2. How can I pick up my registration?
Once you have received the postcard, you can either send a check in for the amount written on your postcard (each person's registration is different, and your salesman will explain the fees,) and we will then mail your registration to your address.
If you choose this option and you want us to send it to a different address than listed on the registration, please include where you would like us to send it.
You can also come into the store and the Cashier's counter will have your registration for you. We accept all forms of payment: cash, check, and all major credit and debit cards.
3. How do I use my Bluetooth, navigation, and other features on my Lincoln vehicle?
Check out our "How-To" videos on our website and YouTube channel! We walk you through it step by step to make it easy as possible.

5. What if I need to get somewhere during my Service Appointment?
We have shuttles at all of our stores, and we happily shuttle our customers anywhere they need to go! We do not have a certain radius we are limited to, we have picked up and dropped people off in all different locations before!
If available, we do have loaner vehicles if your vehicle is being held overnight for a Service appointment.
We also have a brand new, waiting room for our customers to get comfortable in! Our lounge area has couches, kid's coloring table, and TV. Please feel free to switch the channel to one of your preference!
We offer free tea, coffee, and hot chocolate with our easy to use Flavia machine, and always have an array of the most recent magazines suited for everyone's taste. Additionally, we offer free Wi-Fi, computers, and a copy and fax machine so you can get work done, or just surf Facebook! You can also plug in any electronic device into our ports at the counter lining the lounge area's wall.

We love when anyone, whether you are a customer or not, refers others to our store, so much so that we want to thank you for your referral business!
Anyone who refers a customer who purchases a new vehicle will receive a $50 check from us, and anyone who refers someone who purchases a used vehicle will receive a $100 check from us.
