Didn't get a keychain - kind of a little disappointed. Do have the car though. But yeah, a lot of people have been getting those. There are two long posts about the keychain at priuschat.com. It just confirms that Toyota knows you have one on order.

I got a keychain yesterday too! What does it mean? Is Toyota about to call saying my car is on the boat? Is it like being on hold? If I hang up do I lose my place in line?
I think I'll call to see what's up.

Like I said, just means Toyota knows you ordered one. Doesn't mean it's coming, doesn't mean it's not coming. Just means they know about your order.

I got "the call" and got the keychain the next day. My little heart was going pitty-pat, hoping it might be a rebate check for being so patient :_>

Soybomb, Did you hear anything?
My dealer hasn't heard but I'll be stopping by this weekend to say, "But other people who got a keychain got their car...."
In the meantime, my $500 keychain is an even bigger reminder that my car is not here!
.... patience.... endurance....

Drove my Prius home today. Very happy with it.

Some minor annoyances with the dealer but that is basically to be expected. Never pick up a car on a Saturday!

Anyway, the car is great, very glad I waited.

hey pauline,

i have not spoken with my dealer about it yet. kinda skeered to call. i average about a call a month and don't want to rub anyone the wrong way, don't want to lose my spot ( i'm supposed to be next) i'll give them a couple of weeks.

yours living in limbo, soybomb

Default Keychain and car arrived simultaneously

I got the keychain in the mail today, and the dealer told me that the car should arrive at the dealership tomorrow. It is supposed to be on the truck today, headed my way from Los Angeles where it arrived in port sometime around 17 March.

I placed my order on 16 Dec 2003, so if the car really is there tomorrow it will have been 105 days wait - but only 104 days for the keychain!
