Hi Prii Gang,
Well, I ordered my Prius last Wed online and then went to my dealer on
Friday. I did put down $1000, which didn't bother me. I put it on my
credit card and figure that's $1000 that will be paid off by the time
I get my car.
Well, I didn't get an e-mail response from Toyota that my order was
done as of Today, so I'm kind of worried that the dealership just
ordered the car through them the dealership and didn't use my Internet
order number. They called me yesterday, after I left a message and
said they checked and that the order was done. She's calling Toyota
today to make sure I get an e-mail confirmation.
I did tell her that I was pretty Prius wise (thanks to you-all) and
that had heard of dealerships selling ordered cars out from the
orginal owner's order. I'm hoping that is enough to keep them from
doing it to me but I'll keep a watchful eye on them.
