HOW BAD IS THE CHIP SHORTAGE? WHAT ABOUT THE RAV4 PRIME?

May 13th, 2022 by

As you’ve probably heard by now, the worldwide computer chip shortage has meant that new cars are in short supply. Almost every car that we order sells long before it arrives. So how do you shop for a car?

We have a custom Car Builder for just such an occasion! Just pick the car you like and the colors and accessories you want. Our tool will show you the cost step-by-step, and you can try lots of different configurations. When you’re ready, click ‘Submit’. We’ll contact you to verify your order, place it with Toyota, and give you the planned production and arrival dates.

Yep – it’s really that simple, and we can even walk you through it here in our store, on the phone, via video chat, text, or any other way that works for you.

One of the biggest advantages of placing a special order is that it doesn’t cost a dime mor than buying from stock. In fact, because you don’t pay for things that you don’t want, it usually costs less!

The exception? RAV4 Primes. Every one that is planned to be built for the next 2 years has been sold, no matter what you’re willing to pay, and not just at our store. Our advice? Lease a RAV4 Hybrid for 2 – 3 years, then trade its keys in on a Prime when they become more available. Also, the wait time for a Toyota Sienna is currently 12 months (most other cars are 3 – 4 months).

Questions? Call 216-321-9100 Option 1. We’ll be glad to help!
