As the FJ Turns
So right, here's how it's gone so far:
Late December: Place Order for Yellow auto 4x4 CQ UR
January: Give deposit and confirm order to Moses Lake dealer
February: FJs hit port, dealer knows nothing
March: FJs hit dealerships, dealer knows nothing
Late March: FJs officially released, dealer knows nothing. LC test drives his first FJ.
Early April: Dealer still knows nothing, LC pissed.
April 10th: LC very angry, contacts dealers in the Oregon area, finds exactly what he wants in Salem.
April 11th: Original dealer magically comes up with FJs like what LC wants that they can get, LC decides to go with one since they give him a discount ($500 off).
April 12th: Original dealer was supposed to have dealer trade FJ like LC wanted this day, LC was going to pick up on Thursday. Guess what, original dealer can't get zip and dealer they were going to dealer trade wants full MSRP ($31,500). Very very fortunately, even though the hold was canceled, Salem kept his name on the FJ down there so we arrange to pick it up.
April 13th: The wait begins.
