yes, but this was the dealership that was selling it. How is this right if there are so many people on waiting lists?

No clue. These Dealers already make enough money off these cars. Lucky for me, All the dealers i've talked to sell for the proper price.

It's a free country. They can sell for whatever the market will bear. They make a reasonable profit at MSRP, and most dealers do that. But a few are sleazeballs.

If a dealer has a list, and a contractual agreement (written or verbal) to sell to the people on the list in the order they signed on, at a specified price, he is legally required to fulfill that contract. But if a dealer chooses not to use a list, selling instead to whoever he likes, or if a dealer has not quoted a price to the people on his list, then he is under no legal obligation.

However, you can inform Toyota if you know of a dealer who charges over MSRP, and hope that maybe they will allocate him fewer cars, sending them instead to dealers who charge MSRP.
