A data point: I put down a deposit in April 2022 and just drove home my XLE Sienna last week. A 7 month wait. You can always put down a deposit to get on the wait-list first. If one gets allocated to you, you can choose to pass it along if it doesn't fit the specs you want. They'll keep you on the wait-list for the next allocation.Thanks for all the info! What are the wait times right now for getting something new? Never thought about putting down a deposit, but then again we've never bought a new car before. I think we will at least try and wait until the spring, but if something does go wrong that we don't want to fix we will have a backup plan. We are at that point where each repair we start considering if we should fix or buy something new.
