    Check online the various dealers in the Seattle area. They each have their own website and a list of available cars. For example, right now Toyota of Seattle is listing a Prime Advanced in Titanium on their website. That is the only dealer I checked, but there may be more.

    Thank you...except those sites don't do much for me or show me much. I wonder if there aren't any primes left.

    I don't believe there's any Primes up here anyway. The president of Canada (@Tideland Prius) may weigh in. Trumping all: it wouldn't be practical: Canadian cars are setup different, in a lot of ways: metric gauges, Daytime Running Lights, steering wheel on the right side. Just kidding, that last one. ;)

    The gauges in the Prime can be switched by the user from Imperial to Metric. Also all Primes have Daytime Running Lights. The issue is that in Canada these have to be forced on while in the US you can turn them off. This is a rather small difference in general, it just means you don't get the switch to turn off the Daytime Running Lights. I don't believe there is really any issue with the Primes crossing the border to be used, except that you really would have issues with the tax laws beating you up. You would pay taxes in Canada and again in the US most likely even though the trade agreements between the two countries are supposed to avoid this, cars fit in a special class and therefore you would likely get nailed.

    Well, I am not sure what you are expecting. The site shows a picture of the car, lists the options and quotes the price and any available rebates. It suggests you call the dealer to see if it is still in stock. If I were you, I would wait a couple of months until the 2018 models were available. There will probably be some improvements that would be worth a 2 or 3 month wait.

    There was one on the lot of Toyota of Bellingham when I was there about a month ago, although there was a note on the windshield that it would not be sold until September. (By the way, only residents of SW British Columbia might legitimately call themselves PNW residents. Canada consists of more than just one province, ya know). ;-)

    Yeah the only Primes up here are in La belle province which, depending on where you are, have cities that are actually south of you.

    Besides, you're gonna delegitimize those living in Point Roberts, WA?
