Default Need a Good Dealer in Central Florida

I am almost 100% sure that I will be getting a new Xb as soon as it hits the dealers. I am going to the Orlando Backstage event to see the cars and make sure it's for me.

I have spoken to 2 local dealers and both have promised to call back but neither has. I know info has been scarce but a call back would go a long way to earn my buisness.

My question is this. What Central Florida dealer, ( I live near Daytona Beach), is worth dealing with . I would like to deal with some one who is knowledgable and perhps also supports this forum or at least posts here.

Thanks.

Drive west to the other coast and chat with Brandy. She posts as Scioneyes here and is a mod.

I also wish we had a good dealer in Florida, I ALWAYS know more then they do! My new '08 xB will be my 3rd Scion and I WANT a good dealership. Not going back to my local one (even though my old salesperson is kewl), so I'm looking for another dealership *hint hint hint*

You're not going to find a B for cheaper, and truth be known, most dealers are going to be within a few hundred bucks of Actual Cash Value, or Bid to Buy value. Your best bet is to call around, ask for the Scion Champion, and let them know what you're trading, and ask if there are any dealer fees and what they are.

Thanx, I know I won't get a better price on the new 08', but getting different trade-in values on my 06' from local dealers. Seems the bigger the dealer, better the trade-in, guess I'm hunting for best trade-in, since I'm upside down from trading in RS1.0 tC in on my xB last year. And, my 4 local dealers, aren't the greatest on Scion knowledge either.

So, whose is the best dealership for Scions around here?

how far upside down are you. To get the most for your car if not to far upside down and able to pay off the difference go to carmax. They will give you the best value for trade in.
