We’ve gotten our checks from State Farm and from Toyota (refunding the balance of our extended warranty), so I guess the story of the old Prius is officially over at this point.
We’re on the waitlist for a new Prius at six dealers so far (only one of which has actually charged our credit card for the deposit). The next batch of cars is due in this weekend — I’m hoping that one of the dealers will get the color/equipment combination we want, because I’m tired of driving rentals, not to mention paying for them!
The current rental, by the way, is a Chevy Classic — it is completely innocuous and personality-free. This puts it enormously far ahead of the Chevy Cavalier that I rented for the first part of this process, but I wouldn’t want to own one anyway. Sorry, Rick.
