I placed my order around Nov 15th. Left a deposit of $500, which I don't know why, because from what I read, you are only placed on a waiting list. That's all, a waiting list. Then they asked me to be flexible. I never ordered a car before, but I thought that when you do, you get exactly what you want in the car. Sort of defeats the purpose of ordering. I know this is a different situation though. People want the car, including me, but I have a new car already. It gets terrible mileage though. I was waiting to test drive the Prius before I ordered and I did. Now I am considering cancelling my order and ending my wait. I just feel silly waiting for the car like it is a piece of gold. I really have two cars. One new and the other ten years old. How many others are considering the same.
