I got my Scion xD today! (Wheel covers are coming in a few days) A 2008 model, but that’s no big deal since there were no changes and it costed less. The 2nd Toyota dealership had me come-in and hooked me up. I officially double crossed the 1st dealership because they were really being lame.
However the 1st dealer was mad and doesn’t want to refund my $500 deposit because they wanted to get the very same xD for me (from the 2nd dealer) and learned that I was already talking with the 2nd dealer who had it on the lot and refused to give it to the 1st dealer. The 2nd dealer got me to come-in and close the deal because they are going to help me get my $500 deposit back from the 1st dealership, or just give me $500 if I couldn’t get it back. It’s supposedly an illegal practice (thank goodness) and if they don’t refund me they could be closed by the Automobile Association, or Visa or my bank will be able to get my money back. It got a bit too complex, but the dealership I went with was a lot more friendly.
I’m still getting used to the 5-speed manual, but I’m getting it quickly. It should be second nature after a week.
