We placed a deposit down for 2022 Toyota Sienna LE AWD back on 01/16/2022 in Seattle area. We have been getting monthly emails saying still no allocation. I checked with the salesperson today and they told me they have not yet received this month's allocation. He said we should be getting close to the top of the waiting list since it's almost been a year. He also confirmed that we would be getting a 2023 model. I am hoping this wait will be over soon. Anyone else also waiting this long for their Sienna?
Let me guess, you paid MSRP or another good price?
I'm in the same boat.
I'm a couple weeks shy of a year since putting a deposit down and signing a buyers order for MSRP.
I was told in August that I was next. The reality is that my dealer has been selling Siennas faster to whomever pays the highest price. The Sales Manager finally admitted this to me in December when I cornered him and asked how I could be next in August, but still no Sienna in Dec, and yet many XSE's have come and go on their website. It was all lies and stories.
Best bet is daily/weekly check your dealer's website for Sienna inventory, as it will show what's coming to them in allocation/transit.
Then check toyota.com for local inventory search to make sure what Toyota is showing, matches your dealer website. Your dealer cannot hide inventory from Toyota's website.
Then you need to meet with your dealer's Sales Manager and get in writing where you are at on the list. Get a copy. Have them confirm they are going in order from date of buyers order, and not just skipping the line for people paying more over sticker. I guarantee that's what's happening.
Have your dealer put in writing that you have first right of refusal for every XXX trim level that you want, so you can decide if you want it or want to wait.
Again, I'm in the same boat. As of a few weeks ago, my dealer's Sales Manager seemed to finally be willing to offer me the next XSE, but I will need to keep checking their website and Toyota's to make sure they are being honest, because they haven't been all along.
