Question for anyone who ordered a RAV4 Hybrid

6719 Views 45 Replies 20 Participants Last post by  impetus19
I called the dealer that we bought our prius from a number of years back and he seemingly took an order for '23 RAV4 Hybrid LE + BSM. No deposit, MSRP pricing, and he said he would send a spec sheet when available. Also that is could take 9-12 months.
Question is, does Toyota take retail orders or is it mostly dealer stock?
From the sound of my "order" it sounds more as if they are putting me inline for dealer stock that matches what I am looking for.

Thanks, I followed your lead. Della Toyota in Plattsburgh, did have a Hybrid Highlander, but it was the "bronze" edition, very pricey. Just by chance, when I called, they had just had a Hybrid Highlander LE allocated to dealership in November. Put down a deposit, and car was delivered, 3 weeks later for MSRP plus mats. I drove home, to Vermont with a New York State transit Permit in back window.

Cash sale went through fine, Dec 9th, but the dealer insisted on handling the registration, paper work with Vermont DMV. Even though I had filled out all the paperwork (to register it myself) things got screwed up a bit.
Turns out sales tax was computed wrong, and a month later I still don't have VT registration or Title document for this Highlander. Still can't take car out of State or to Canada. Della say they will take care of this..
Nice to hear that they were able to get you into the car you wanted. Compared to St. Albans' Toyota dealer, it's not that long a drive for a much better atmosphere.And something about the size and market leads to decent speed on getting a car.

But too bad about the registration thing. You'd think that they would have that down smooth. And would want it to go smooth. I see Handy and Burlington dealer logos all the time in the Plattsburgh area; Della should court the Vermont market, not screw people over. I know that the guy who did the final cash out of my purchase at Della was relatively new. In fact, the first final sale price workup I got the day before picking up the Rav4 hybrid was ~$1500 less than it was supposed to be, as the new guy pulled an old workup for the deposit, not the actual vehicle I was driving out the door. Might be the same guy messing up your paperwork.

Has anyone used the toyota-tracker.com to track their progress? My order still says allocated there but the dealer is telling me it is supposed to arrive next week which seems unlikely since it does not appear to have even shipped from Japan yet.
