Ditto! Am trying to get the local Scion dealer to let me pre-order one now. Wife wants auto and silver, easy nuff, or so I thought. :nope:

After putting off an entire model year (no 2007s), I was thinking that the dealer would want to get a list together and sell the new xBs asap. Oh, well, will let you know when they get back with me re: deposit and order.

BTW, the Scion dealer I am talking with has NO new 2006 xBs in stock. (There are 4 Scion dealers in the metro area, but this one is closest to me.)

My local Scion dealer is telling me August or September before they receive the new xB. Could be because they still have plenty of '06's. No word on price.

Truth of the matter is that they have no idea. Could be anywhere from end of May to begining of August.

You can't order one right now. There's nothing in the allocation pipelines, and there won't be for awhile (see above). If you talked with the scion manager, you should be able to give them your info and they should be able to call you as soon as they get any word on what's happening.

They are taking orders here in the NorthEast. I have good word that they new box should be hitting the shores late March or early April. These will be in a very limited supply as Scion plans on rolling out the xB2 at a regular pace mid to late summer.

The price won't matter, with limited supply till mid summer, early adaptors will get gouged as usual.

Midwest - Mid-April

Mom is on a list and the dealership and regional scion manager know what she wants. I made sure she's dealing with a split delearship so she can get the car quicker.

I plan on knowing ASAP when the MSRP is announced so my mom can get the financing taken care of.

Would it be rude of me to have her get the navi (financied) and not get it installed so I can put it in my xB? *snicker*

I though Scions were sold pretty much with pure pricing. Is that not the case?

Considering that Mr. BrianRichardson has only been here for 2 days ... you really cant blame him for spewing what he doesnt know.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! The xB2 has me very excited about the possibility of becoming a Scion owner. So I went to my local dealer yesterday and was told not to expect any deliveries of the new xB2 until August or so. He also said that some new models are sold with dealer added equipment when they first arrive. So maybe I shouldn't call it "gouging", just added value.

I'll be dropping a $300 refundable deposit down for one tomorrow. My dealer said the first shipment will be in April ish. So far he has 2 other deposits.

This will be my 1st Scion 2. I have been exited Since November. Kind of over it and would like a road trip or 2 to get it out of my system.

He did not get specific about price, he just said that it will be close to ye ol xB

I plan on buying the Teal one. Need to see the list of upgrades and pricing to see how much I will add. Might wait to see what the first RS looks like first. I have a Toyota now with 120k miles that runs like it has 30k. Toyota makes great reliable cars.

Toyota has been making alot of cars with recalls and issues in the last couple of years. Hopefully the new Scions will be reliable cars, but the Toyota name does not equal quality. Maybe since they are actually made in Japan, they may be good. Toyota needs to get back on track and start producing quality cars again. If they lose their reputation of quality (and they deserve to be losing it to a degree given their issues over the last couple of years), then they will be losing their most appealing aspect.

Ive had a deposit on one since 1/1/07- my dealer called last week and said the xB is released 5-15-07!

AND they should have a trac car ( the one that toyota sends them as a demo) about 3 weeks before that!

Well the MidWest Scion Regional Manager told the sales lady my mom is working with the new ones should start arriving mid-April but who knows whats really true.

Ok so since I'm reading so many people have pre-ordered I wanted to make sure my mom wasn't 15th on the list. She's #1 at a dealership that was invited to Chicago and only the top 145 sellers were invited. The sales lady said she'd like to have the car April 24th when my mom is flying home from Texas so I'm hoping that can happen.

don't let the media hype get you in a lather. Toyota DOES mean quality. The growth issues are a concern for Toyota, but let's keep this in perspective, shall we? If you make 1 mistake out of 1000, you're doing pretty good right? Well if the next year, you make 3 mistakes out of 1000, still doing well right? Well, you tripled your mistakes, so that isn't good, but when your closest competitor averages 10 mistakes out of 1000, and the middle of the pack is making 145 out of 1000, I guess it's still pretty good, eh?

Prices should be up around the tC or more. Prolly 17K base.
My wife actually likes the new xB so we may get a base one for a daily driver/beater. It will help me keep miles off the real xB. :clap:

Me personally, i like how you bash the color choices on the other thread. Then bash the car on a different thread ... now you can comment on how much the new box will cost, huh? Man, you should run for President of the United States. He cant make up his mind either, and when he does, he doesnt stick to it any way.

Be prepared to pay for those TVs. Its from Scion, and they are notorious for marking up their own aftermarket.
