People,

I cannot wait any longer for my order. I placed my order June 10th at the Morristown Toyota dealer in NJ. They are a family dealer with leads me to believe they are laid back and just wait to be sent their allocations. A couple of people have ordered their 06, flint mica, with airbags about a week after me (eddiemoney) and they will have their cars within a week (congrats btw). Should I just say fudge it and go to another dealer? What do you guys think?? Who knows a good dealer that's going to haul azz and get me three 06s?? By July 4th (hehe, i know that's pushing it at this point) HELP!!!

I had to tell my first dealer to shove it and go to my second choice. They delivered yesterday.

BTW, the 06 is worth the wait

Dude I think you need to calm down. Most of the OG's on this site had to wait upwards of a month or more for their cars. Quit your bitching. If you don't want to wait go to another dealer, but who's to know if you will get it their when you want it.

We waited about 6 weeks for the first one and about 4 weeks for the second. There are more buyers than there are cars. If you really need this, you need to expand the scope of your search.

Thanks people, I needed a reality check. But technically, I've been holding out since January. I figured why get the 05 when the 06s are usually released in spring. But with scion, it was all mysterious. Rumors this, and they're going to discontinue this feature, I'm exhausted and just want my car. But again, thanks guys.. Damn pinky, April 2? Not even virgins let me wait that long. That's my birthday btw.

actually 06's that are released in spring are normally for brand new cars, not for cars that were released in the previous year. Generally cars that are not a "new model" get their release sometime in the fall. Anyway it sucks that you have had to wait that long but you could have gotten an 05 at any time from when you started waiting, and my 05 still looks brand new and still is just as good as an 06..

I would like to clarify the reason I switched dealers.

The first dealer I went to demanded $1000 cash to even start looking for a car. A credit card would not do, a check would not do. They wanted cash. I delivered and they told me they found a car. It would be in within 2 weeks they said. One week later I called to see what was up and they said that they couldn't get the car that they had told me was on the way. They wanted to know my second choice of color. I asked when they found out the first car they had promised was unavailable and they said the day after getting my $1000. I asked when they were going to tell me about there being no car and they said "umm... well..."

Homey don't play that. I called another dealer. They found me a car.

You did the right thing. That's unbelievably poor customer service.

I can't believe how low some car dealers can be.


Oh wait. Yes I can.

They only had 2 models at the dealership, and they were both exactly the same and had every single add-on, and they were red. Besides, I wanted a manual transmission. It's more fun. heh. They said I'd have to wait 6 - 9 weeks, but it's just been a little over 4 and it's here. I still have to wait till tomorrow to go pick it up, because they haven't put the CD player in yet, and they have to have it detailed.
