Hey....just heard that my Blizzard Pearl may be here tomorrow!


They thing is, I really love the car, but I really need a higher passenger seat for the elderly and disabled passengers I frequently have. So I may have to go with something else. Not to mention that I prefer Silver now anyway.


So I am thinking I will keep my deposit on it until this weekend if someone is willing to travel to Phoenix by this weekend to buy it.


If anyone is interested in getting an iM early please let me know.

They're not allowed to sell the car early, and Toyota won't ship the car to them until they are allowed to sell it. Toyota will hold all cars at the dock until September 1. All this talk of the cars reaching dealerships ahead of schedule is bunk.

This is the message I received from my salesman.


"I wanted to inform you that if everthing goes as planned your vehicle should be arriving by end of business day tomorrow." Avondale Scion


And this from another dealer....




"If you're still interested in the Sion iM, we're expecting them to arrive at Big Two starting as early as this Friday.

Let me know if its a different vehicle you desire.

You can reach me by email or at my direct #s below to confirm a time for test drive."


You may be right about actually purchasing one,.....still checking on that, but they will be sitting there, at least.

I spoke directly with the manager and that's what they said. Although they could technically sell it early they can get in trouble same as selling at a different price.

Sounds right....but at least we can look at the early arrivals.


I am double checking here to see if we get the same story.

this is market. this dealership not sell the car to you, some others will. all about economic approaching. since toward to the end of the month, alot of the salesman need quotes to push up their sales. i can tell you that not all the dealership are follow guidelines, some are finding holes in the market. just my 0.02 cents

Seems strange that you ordered the vehicle when you knew that you'd need a higher seat for your passengers. Anyway, hopefully you'll be able to find a buyer, but its sad because you will end up losing money in the end.

Not strange really. It was unknown how high the passenger seat was until I actually saw one. In Europe both seats are height adjustable and there was always the possibility that it might come here that way. It wasn't.


No money lost because the deposit is fully refundable. I did not "order" the car, it was scheduled to come anyway and I just put a deposit on it to get the right to first try and refusal if I didn't like it. I would never throw money away like that.


The dealer will have no problem selling these cars to someone else as soon as I let it go and get my deposit back. He only has a couple so far.

yeaa the CHR concept supposedly! the higher ride height will be better suited to ingress and egress as well...
I just hope it doesn't have the squished cargo area like the Juke. That is another of my criteria along with seat height.

that seemed to be a compromise with the Juke's design but if worse comes to worse you can always get a vehicle slightly bigger/more capable or even get a roof top carrier, but I rather go the bigger vehicle route.

I would probably go with the RAV4. That is my dilemma right now. I am hoping for clearer representations of what this new crossover will be like before it is too late to get a year end 2015 RAV-4. Hoping for the better spy shots at least. I don't care too much what the rest of the car looks like, but the cargo area is important to me.

I think something will most likely come up in the Frankfurt auto show since most of the new models' press releases will be there.

That would be really cool, but this article doesn't show it being there , despite other proto types like Tiguan and Sportage.
The articles say Geneva in March, which is a major show.

But maybe a picture?? That would be cool to at least have that!

Hey.....just realized those are blacked out iM wheels on the prototype.
To me this is very good news because some have suggested the CX-3 would be used. The iM is much roomier than the CX-3.


Also suggestions that it will be built on a new platform that will be shared with other models. So a brand new car, not an adaption of something else.


Also may be shown at the LA show in November. I hope so!
