#1 of 7508 Toyota Prius Orders - when delivery?
Oct 24, 2003 (2:35 pm)
Ordered a new Prius last Saturday. Dealer told me 8 weeks for delivery, which seems really fast to me.
Anyone else order one, and what did your dealer tell you for delivery?
#2 of 7508 delivery unknown

We ordered ours last Sunday it is (supposed) to arrive by 11/15/03. Tomorrow would be fine!
I think it is a guess. The dealer is vague at best.
#3 of 7508 happy new year?

I ordered mine a week ago from the largest dealer in Kansas City. They had a total of 22 orders by the time I got mine in, and were "hoping" for mid-December delivery...but promising early January. I'm a little worried about the tax credit drop off on January 1. Otherwise, it's worth the wait!!
#4 of 7508 4 to 6 weeks
Oct 25, 2003 (6:32 am)
I ordered on October 20. My dealer said 4 to 6 weeks. I wrote on the order that it must be available for delivery before the end of this year or I do not want it. Starting January 1, 2004 the 2000 dollar above the line deduction goes to 1500 dollars, and if I cannot get the car this year I will wait, until the demand does not exceed the supply, and where there may be some room to negotiate.
#5 of 7508 Multi dealer orders
Oct 25, 2003 (8:30 am)
I ordered one from USA's largest dealer last week. I had to put a $500 refundable deposit. They said I was 94th in line and could expect my order to arrive in 2-3 months. There are also other dealers in So. California that I put my name in without the deposit. I got a call from 2 dealership the other day and said they could get one that day if I don't mind the getting a different interior color trim. They must be refering to just one car they found somewhere. I was just too stubborn to reject it and stick with my original order.
Another round of deliveries is expected in SoCal dealerships next week. Hopefully one dealership can get the exact color, package and trim I ordered and give me a call. The first one who gets one and gives me a call gets my business.
#6 of 7508 Tax Credit
Oct 25, 2003 (9:56 am)
All of the documentation I can find for the tax deduction don't list the 2004 Prius, only the 2000 - 2003.
I think we're all expecting the tax deduction to be extended, but does anyone have anything that actually states the deduction is available for the 2004 Prius?
#8 of 7508 dealer's dirty trick
Oct 28, 2003 (6:00 am)
Hello Prius fans,
The dealer never called me so yesterday I asked my local dealer where my car was. Even though the VIN was on the bill of sale, they sold mine to someone else! If I even get delivery before the end of the year, their CEO is going to get more than an earful.

Be sure and call Toyota's customer service line on this as well. They need to be aware what their dealers are doing.
