Just hoping to vent some.

Back in Jan I got on a STI waiting list at Norm Reeve Subaru, Todd (sales manager) says he has only been a subaru dealer for like a month and is not sure he will get any STI's. So I get on list anyway, was 3rd at the time.

So a fair amount of time has gone buy and I figure time to give him a call and see what is up. Talking with another sales guy (works for Todd, the sales manager) I say I got on list in Jan and then you guys weren't sure you were getting any STI's, have you heard anything since then. Sales guy "Yeah we have already sold 3"

I think ???? I am 3rd on list, they sold 3, but I don't have an STI????

Seems I was on a magical list that no one knows about. Asked him to check if I am currently on the list he says no. He asked what color I wanted said black (gold rims) he said, well the 3 we sold were blue. He talked with the sales manager and he said they were expecting 2 more at the end of the month, thought they would get a silver & white, but won't know for sure till he talks with Subaru Rep.

Anyway very sad for me :(

Unfortunately I never put down any deposit.

Back in Jan they said they weren't sure they would be getting any STI's and that they would call people if they get any cars, to get a deposit. Well I never got a call, seem that was because I was never on their list.

Guess moral of story is need to baby some dealers to make sure they aren't trying to screw you over.

Sucks to be me :(

Ah, no deposit. Yeah, I called my dealer last October or so when the first autoweek article came out and asked to be put on the list. I was passed around from person to person, most of whom had never heard of the STi. Finally got the sales manager who said he would put me on the list and call me as soon as they knew more. Well, that list disappeared and I never got any call. By the time I contacted them again with a deposit in February, someone else had already put down money and got the #1 spot. Any record of my previous call was gone.
