They can trade cars with another dealer if that dealer has something he wants. thaz how I got mine. My guy traded 2 xA's for a blue xB. He's so sweet

this guy said they didnt trade with a couple places on my list. he claimed they didnt trade with longo, or carson scion. carson has a black 5-speed, but SLO wont trade with them. my depoist contract says its gonig to be 1-4 months. its really sad , cause i had to explain to him that im keeping the business local, and im putting faith in my local dealer to find me one. too bad its all my effort towards the search for one.

I never had to do it but why can't you take out the deposit and go somewhere else? There are lots of places with what you are looking for. That sux

scions are manufactured in japan.

San Luis Obispo right? The Scions are built 100% in Japan. We have had guests come down from SLO because the delers are limited on supply up there. Let me know if there are any questions you might have :)

^^Any white manuals in stock??^^

I have 4 in stock.

I heard that for the first time in Toyota history, the plants are in production 3 shifts a day 24-7 to make xB's! The only plant for Scions (as of right now) is in Japan, that's no BS.
In terms of dealer trading, some do, some don't. We do it all the time. I'm guessing you'd be better worth your time giving Verone a call, since he has them in stock. I have no idea where San Luis Obispo is, but it's gotta be closer to LA than here.

man, thats like going to vegas and back for you Drew. Drew, dont forget your scion gear for the show on Sat

I'm worth it! j/k, although I wouldn't mind going to Vegas right now. I just got back from vacation, and I already need another one!
The only gear I've got is the bag they gave at SEMA, and my beanie, which I will be sporting with pride! I wouldn't want my shiny dome to get all chilly, ya mean?
