If you read my above post, you need to know that was the 3rd scion dealership I went to.
I wanted a tc manual in white, silver, or azure pearl. With no options added. The first dealerships quoted me 2-4 weeks depending on my flexiblity.
The 3rd dealership (scion of dallas) said they were the top seller in the area and could get cars quicker. They said within a week. I decided friday I wanted the car, they called me 3 hours later to say they could get a white one by the following wednesday the latest. It had ipod and mats added on (not what I wanted which they conviently forgot to mention.)
to Sum up my long windedness; It depends on the dealership and whats already on its way to your area and how much of its not sold. I recommend checking all the dealerships in your area and if your flexible you should be able to get one fairly quickly.
good luck and I hope your experience is better than mine

"Whats the point (is it worth) of the $1200 extended warranty on a Brand new car."
Because in a few years, with a few thousand miles, the car won't be new anymore, and you will be out of standard warranty.

#102 of 114 New tC vs Used? Any Deals? Buying advice?
Jan 08, 2007 (11:16 pm)
I want to buy a TC, is there anyone that would like to share their experience and give me some advice on the process...
Anyone successfully bought it for less then advertised?
Any deals? As of now I only know that there is the $400 rebate.
How about certified pre-owned (6-year warranty?)
How about getting a used one? - prices are not much lower
but the miles are sure more than 0
I can shop in PA and MA.
#103 of 114 Romano Scion Toyota experience
Feb 18, 2007 (3:33 pm)
I purchased a new tC from Romano Toyota Scion in Syracuse NY.
There were no discounts and the price was sticker price. I probably could have done a bit better on the tradein by selling outright, but the trade was a POS and I really didn't want to deal with it.
The sales team at Romano was excellent. And Roland Sanchez was easy going, no pressure, happy to take the time for a long test drive. Paper work issues on my tradein pushed the deal out a couple of days and they were more sympathetic than worried about closing the deal.
The only issue that I had was the shop installed the mudflaps without my authorization, I would have done it myself instead of pay for such a simple job, but the salesman knocked the install fees off the bill. So not much other than list price, but a little bit that was appreciated.
I'd been shopping for a few months and chose the Scion over the four cylinder model Mitsu Eclipse and Hyunda Tiburon as the Scion was quieter and seemed solider than those two.
I've had the ride for about 2000 miles now and absolutely nothing has gone wrong. The car gets funner to drive every day. The only down side is the seat, while supportive, is uncomfortable on long highway trips. (Keeping my Impala for highway cruising.)
I definitely recommend Romano Scion and the tC.

I'm thinking about leasing a manual tc, no options added. What am I looking at in terms of monthly payments with roughly $2,000 down? Credit score 710.
