    Picked up my Prime in New Jersey yesterday. Silver advanced with black interior. Great car and amazing safety features.

    Unfortunately my remote entune features (remote climate, charge management etc) don't seem to be working. I've put in my safety connect contract # and it can't connect to the vehicle.

    Anybody else having similar issues? I've been on the phone with Toyota for 45 minutes and no success for now.

    if this is the case, than toyota hasn't educated and motivated the dealers. hopefully as production increases, things will change. if not, than we're back to compliance car status. too early in the game to know, and toyota's silence is defining as usual.

    Earnhardt Toyota in Mesa AZ has a Prime advanced listed for ~ $34,600
    I'm patient, but at least inventory is leaking out

    Just want to keep the thread updated on Prius Prime inventory at Jim Coleman Toyota in Bethesda, MD. We have sold 5 1237s (Prime Premium) so far but have 1 1235 (Prime Plus) and 1 Premium remaining in stock. We have another Premium a few days away. We have an additional 26 inbound vehicles that will continue to hit the ground here over the next few weeks and month. Feel free to give me a call directly with any questions. Thanks!

    Pat- Just out of curiousity, does this imply nice prices on used PiPs?

    I saw this on the Earnhardt website last Friday and called on Sunday to see if I could come by to see it. I was told that it sold on Saturday and was a very popular car. It's still in their inventory today. I wonder if it really existed or if they were using it's bait.

    On a good note, the Arizona MVD updated their hybrid plate list to add the Prime yesterday. I ordered my Prime to transfer my hybrid plate over now! I've got one ordered through Big Two in Chandler with no ETA at this time.

    Pat, I bought one of the 1237s from Joel Venga this past Saturday. He was very helpful and professional. We did most of it by phone and email, and in less than 24 hours I was driving my Prime back to Charlottesville. Rahleik Restrepo was also very easy to work with. Great people you have there- congratulations! Please pass along my thanks.

    Just checked the cars.com site and looked to see if any Primes were within 500 miles of me. The one in Des Moines popped up and one more did. An advanced in Kirksville, MO. Kirksville is a town of less than 9,000 people. That seems odd for the only Prime in the state as far as I could see. If true, they are getting closer.

    Update to my post above. I took the list of dealerships that cars.com said had a Prime available near me and went to each site. None listed on their sites except Des Moines. Is this some kind of bait and switch?

    I used cars.com also. The dealer I picked said they have the car listed there. But won't arrive until the end of December. He said it is still available so I reserved it.

    Still none in Illinois. I can't believe a big market like the Chicago area still doesn't have one.

    (n)(n)(n):cry::(:cry::(:cry::(:cry::(:cry:

    I'm going to look like this before they get here...

    There isn't one within 500 miles of Denver. No matter for me, I have one on order and wouldn't buy it until after January 1st even if it were sitting in the showroom. But I would like to test drive one and see one in the flesh.

    Quick question for former PIP'ers remember when we could track the progress of our PIP's on the ships they were being transported on? Can we do that with the Prime? If so, how?
