Oh man. After many, many calls to Toyota North, I found out that the odds of the Prius coming soon are pretty much zero. As our dealer put it, "With any luck, you'll have it by the end of the month-- I mean, year."
I guess that's okay, but what's really bothering me is that our dealer, Joe, is not being very helpful about the whole thing. He never answers his phone, and only calls me when I call him first. I'd like to think that a four month delay would be worthy of a call, but apparently not. I had to call to get ticked off.
So I don't recommend "Toyota North" in Mt. Kisco. I'd switch dealers, but I don't want to start on a whole new list, nor do I want to have to try to fight for my deposit back.
I don't know what, if any, course of action I have. Maybe I can get my geek friends to help me get my complaint to the top of a Google Search for "Toyota North" or "Prius Westchester". But I doubt they'd take that threat too seriously, nor am I sure I can even do it, since I can't even get my site to come up when searching for "Kevin Cooney."
Any suggestions?Posted by Kevin at August 19, 2004 05:02 PM
