I would wait for actual pictures or confirmation from the dealer. One of my local dealers shows two in stock but a drive by and email from them said they are not there yet.

Probably best to wait it out till Sept 1st to then contact dealers or if your really want to be first call now to make sure when they will have it in transit and when approx at the dealer.

Your best bet is to contact your local dealer directly. Hopefully September 1st can be trusted as an on sale date though.

Getting on to some waiting list with a deposit put down could be a way to get them to take you seriously and better the chances they'll reach out to you when the time comes.

I have a hard time taking them seriously when they don't even know when the car is coming in.

Heard from 3 local dealers today and they are all saying mid September now.


Just wonder where the car I put a deposit on is sitting. Shipping document said it was in San Pedro port weeks ago.

I guess they should just say "coming soon" then. I hate when there are dates and then they get pushed back. Better to give people a range then. How about September '15, or Fall '15?

It probably helps with them getting you to hold on to your money to spend it on them than to move on and spend it elsewhere ;)

If the Carlsbad Scion had 8 iM in inventory before September 1st, could this not also apply to other dealers too? Or are they just holding onto the Scion iM stock and waiting for the green light by Toyota.

Actually this is very possible. I know that dealerships and even the company that owns that dealer and more have lots away from dealerships where they keep vehicles.

So for all we know there could be hundreds of iM's sitting in a lot just patiently waiting to be picked up for Sept 1 delivery.

Some of these lots are hidden and some are in high traffic areas and VERY obvious.

Are these lots for just one dealership or do they serve multiple dealers in a certain region?
From what I have heard, some of these lots are not specific to one make and are near the transportation that brought them to the city.


There are no specific markings on these lots about their contents.

igs,


You'll love this one......


I went by a different Scion dealer yesterday and he had no idea that September 1st was the release date. Then to top it off he goes to the Scion website to find out about it.....lol. In other words, he knew zilch about the car.


Totally clueless.:rolleyes:
