What the dealer said

So, this dealer says to me....
1. They won't be in until middle of Feb
(3 minutes later via email)
2. We got 2 in yesterday. Call me for trim package info.
I call
3. Production is delayed. No one is getting the rest of them until end of Feb. Want to place an order?



I'm watching cars.com all day long. The number listed is going up significantly every day.

QUESTION 1: How long until the ones listed start hitting the dealers. I understand there are a few dealers get some here and there... but when will they be more plentiful?

Question 2: Do they make every color combo in every trim package? Ex: There seem to be a ton of blizzard whites for the Limited, almost no Shoreline blue.

Thanks.

As of today (18th January) in our area two of three Oregon dealers report having one 2013 RAV each in stock and the nearest California dealer reports having 18!

Another dealer - one I tend to trust - told me they'll get one in in advance and the rest will follow about a month later. It will allow people to see it and help build demand.

That seems more plausible.

The timing is bad for me, but ...
