Hello everyone. I just recently bought a Scion TC in Flint Mica on Sunday the 16th. The dealership, Symes Scion of Pasadena (California), told me the car was currently ground status and would arrive Tuesday. I went ahead and bought the car and filled out all the paperwork. Well Tuesday comes around and no car and from that day it turned into a " oh, it should be here tomorrow" and today is Saturday. I went ahead complained for a long time and they ended giving me a free rent a car, Pontiac G6. Thats great and all but I want the car I purchased. I need to get to work and school and the only reason I bought from them was the fact that they said it would be here Tuesday. I called Northridge Scion and talked to the manager to see if they had the car so I could cancel my contract with Pasadena and buy from them. The moment the manager found out I was buying from Pasadena they went ahead and told me that they knew Pasadena and that they wouldn't screw me in my deal and so on. They calmed me down and told me my VIN number without me telling them and told me the car would most likely be there Monday. When I purchased the car from Pasadena the MSRP was 17600.00 so I asked what was added that I am being charged 85.00 more. They could not tell me what it was. Too excited in buying a new car and thinking it was to arrive a day later I went ahead and just bought the car. The manager in Northidge was the one who told me the extra was the floor mats. I called Scion and left a bad review for Pasadena for making promises they cant live up to. I also remember reading something on this site about someone having a accident and being so impressed with the safety of the car that they went ahead and purchased another one. I told them about that and they took the websites name and said they like hearing about things like that. My two questions to ask are 1) How long did some of you wait when you were told the car was ground status ? The port it lands here is Long Beach which is a 30 min drive to Pasadena, 2) Does anyone know if the SRS Side and Curtain airbags can be added on to the car after purchase like if it where an accessory since thats what its considered ? Well, don't buy from Pasadena if you want a Scion and I am looking forward to meeting other TC owners here and learning from you guys on parts and accessorys for the car. Bye.
