Hello Prius Chat! Long-time fan of the Prius. Hoping to become a proud owner soon. So I've known for a while that Prii are popular cars (I live in SoCal and about every other car on the carpool lane is a Prius) but I had no idea how popular. I started shopping for a 2017 Prius Prime last week and test drove at a few dealerships. When it came down to discussing price, NO ONE has given me a deal better than MSRP. First of all, of the 6 or 7 dealerships I've contacted, only 3 of them even had a Prius Prime in stock. Of those 3, only 2 dealers had vehicles available for sale (the 3rd said their Primes were already contracted to other customers). All three dealerships told me I would be lucky to get it at MSRP and that I should act fast. It seems like they are all getting upgraded wheels, tints, carpets, etc. so I would most likely be paying north of $30,000 BEFORE tax and fees. Is this an unofficial Prius sales tactic? I don't expect dealers to be throwing deals my way, but shouldn't the price be adjusted down rather than up? This is unlike any other car-buying experience I've ever had. Are the new Prius Primes really that popular? Is it just a bad time to buy? Am I really lucky to be paying MSRP? Thanks in advance for your responses.
