If you've been out shopping for a new 2011 Toyota Prius for sale, well you probably already know there aren't any. The continued fallout from the earthquake and tsunami has meant that car dealerships from Lancaster PA to the San Francisco cost have been short on supply for months.
You may have even turned to hunting for a used Prius for sale, though you probably know prices for used hybrids are hardly cheap. Used Prius asking prices are right up there near new car prices. You can buy two 2005 Toyota Camry for the prices people are asking for a used Prius.
Cars that get over 40 MPG right now are hot commodity, and the affordable price make demand for even a used Prius for sale worth more than its probably worth. Especially since dealer inventories are so low. You may really want one, but if you have to drive to car dealerships in Lancaster PA, you may think twice.
And that was an example; don't go firing up the Toyota dealer locator to find out where Lancaster is. And on that note, here's another disclosure. The news Toyota is shipping 75,000 cheap new hybrids, all Prius, to American shores soon has been well, retracted.
So officially, there is no huge shipment of over 40 MPG goodness sometime after the Fourth of July holiday. But make no mistake, like Mom slamming the closet shut after we seen the Christmas gifts peaking out under the blanket, denying it won't take back the surprise.
Soon there will be 2011 Toyota Prius for sale again, soon we can use the Toyota dealer locator to find a dealership that actually has the car in stock that you want. Sadly this demand still means no 2011 Toyota incentives on the Prius but we must take the extraordinary gas mileage as its own reward and solider on. Be brave.
