What's up North Region?
Long time lurker, first time poster.
Well, my wife and I are expecting our first child in a few months. I have a Honda Civic and she is driving a Nissan Sentra. With the kid on the way we are looking to upgrade the Sentra to a small hatch. My first choice, of course is the xB. We are also going to look at the Matrix and the Fit. We haven't test driven any of them, but can you guys recommend someone to talk to at either Scion City or RL Scion? I want to make sure we don't get stuck with some first time sales person who doesn't really know what they are talking about.
I checked the dealers section, but there aren't too may recent posts. Good and bad feed back would be great.

You are going to want to head over to Maplewood Scion and talk to Ross. Hes been with them for a good amount of time and is very knowledgeable...plus hes about the only "human" lifeform that I know of that happens to be a car sales person.... lol
They are located off of hwy 61, about 2 miles south of 694.

i dont really know too much about other dealers... but i bought mine at walser toyota scion in bloomington... with the exception of how long i had to wait to get the one i wanted... i had no problems at all with them

since there is no more Kelly...
I would also recommend maplewood toyota, I stopped by just to check out the YARIS... and Ross knew I wasn't buying as I pulled up in the xA. He was very informative, wasn't pushy, and looked at the time as an investment. I would say it's payong off now, go see him.

I'll de-lurk here, too. My name is Nancy, and I work at Rudy Luther Scion. I'm not the legendary Kelly, who now sells Scions in Oregon; but like Avis, I try harder. I'd be happy to help you with a new xB. I'm here every day but Thursday (and nobody is selling at a dealership on Sunday in Minnesota). Come on in, or give me a call. Whatever works for you.
The main number at Rudy Luther Toyota and Scion (in case you missed it in our ScionLife sponsorship banner) is 763 544-1313. Call and ask for Nancy in Scion. If you come in before the 24th, you can enjoy our pre-move chaos--we'll be in our new building after June 24th. Until then, we're all a little punchy, but still having a good time around here. :)

You should host a scion even after the new move. It would be a good turnout, and probably sell some cars.

Thanks Nancy for the great service!
Nancy stayed late for my wife and I to come take a test drive. We ordered a BOP xB, now we just have to wait.
I would recommend Nancy at Rudy Luther to anyone looking for a Scion.
Don't worry about the construction, it will be done in a couple weeks.
