Too late. I got the fever and had to act.
Plano didn't have any 4x4s. I ended up leasing a Voodoo Blue 4WD AT fully loaded for $2000 under MSRP from Toyota of Lewisville.
Man, was it a miserable experience. We walked in at 4 PM and didn't get out until after ten. I went to the video store afterwards to take back a movie, and found that the finance officer left my license in the copier.
Why is it such a pain in the ass to get a new car? I guess if you just take whatever ridiculous numbers they first give you, the process would be much faster.
It took 3-4 hours; but I got them to come 2K off the sticker, and I got the interest rate down to 5.20%.
Oh, and after the hours of haggling, they have the nerve to give a hard sell on an extended warranty package. I wanted to choke that guy.
There's a road near Lake Lewisville that I've never been able to go down because it's too rough. I went up and down it twice last night at 2 AM.
I was able to get the fully loaded FJ now instead of waiting for something else by promising to my wife that I wouldn't mention the word "boat" for at least 3 years.
I've got my eye on a tri-hull "canoe" with a Mercury 120hp outboard.
