I guess I was the lucky one. Went to local Acura dealership here in Louisville, KY, was told of msrp and a 3 month wait. Was unsure, so I left.
Two weeks ago, I saw an X sitting on a BMW/Lexus dealerships lot. Called the salesmanager there, come to find out it wasn't even on his inventory list yet.
A lady, Mrs. Ruth, the owner of Ruth's candies, had driven it for 8 months and turned it in for a Lexus 470.
2001 mesa beige(non-touring), but with roof rack, cargo liner and rear muds. It only had 16,400 miles on it.
They didn't know what they had, because I went in and negotiated it down from $34,000 to $32,000 and bought it on the spot @ 5.9% for 60 months, even before it hit their inventory list.
The next day the mgr. called and said they had received about 2 dozen calls from dealers around the region wanting the X, and willing to pay the full $34,000. He mentioned he had no idea this suv was in such high demand.
I guess he'll know next time.
Bottom line is: Keep your eyes open, an X could pop up when you least expect it to.
