    A thread for those to let us know when they get their new Prime. Nov 3rd is almost here. Some of us need to be happy for others or be jealous, envious, and sad as we wait for our opportunity. Don't think I will be 1st to smile.

    I got one from the first batch of PHV delivered. That didn't work out this time, but within the next few weeks is fine for me. I suspect I'll still be among the first to experience extreme cold. So, it all works out.

    The warm climate owners are those who will be setting expectations for everyone having to wait longer for deliver... or waiting for nice weather.

    I've talked to all my local dealers here in Colorado, and they don't even know when the first one will arrive in the area. I just want to go look at one. Because of the tax credit change for my state, I don't want one until next year, but I would like to at least look at one and drive one if possible.

    Funny, I was looking at a deeply discounted 2016 Eco until I saw the pricing for the Prime. At that point I rapidly shifted gears (so to speak) and decided the Prime was a better deal.

    I believe my Prime is being unloaded in Long Beach as I type this. Century Leader No. 3 arrived in port at 5am this morning.
    Each car needs to be cleared and inspected before it can be released to the dealer. Since it's a new model, that may take a little longer than normal.
    But, at least it doesn't have to go far.

    Man, I would not be able to sleep. I hope you plan on giving us a full report as you get it, learn to drive it, and fall in love with it.

    I don't know, think I'm calling BS on this one. A page built to tease. The VIN number for my prime begins with JTDKARFP9...., and these don't. And the descriptions couldn't be more generic, nothing 'primelike' in them. And the cute drapes? Pictures have been out for a while.

    Same listings for La. And Tx dealers Maybe same dealer group. Not vin#'s stock #'s
    Same "38869" #'s in Huntsville, Al. That's in SE Toyota area

    See that others are visiting these dealer Prime page also. Seems to be good interest in the Prime.
