Did you special order your Yaris or buy it from dealer stock?

I was wondering how may of us have special ordered the Yaris or purchased their car from dealer stock. We bought our 3-Door LB on October 23 (I traded my 2006 Civic LX, which I wasn't fond of) from dealer stock. At the time they had two LBs and two, four doors models on the lot. They now have several including the cars which were on the lot when I bought mine. The dealer told me that sales of the Yaris and Prius (they have six) had slowed way down when gas prices fell. Sales of truck and SUVs had jumped (people have short memories). I have been reading about people waiting for their cars delivered in January - are the cars in short supply in your area?

our dealers have TONS of liftbacks now. one dealer has about 8 liftbacks sitting on their lot. just went to test drive a scion xA, and that dealer had 5 liftbacks ready to go. we're waiting for ours (due in mid-jan) because our region doesnt get side airbags as an option. this is a must for us, especially after seeing those yaris crash test videos. the yaris will carry precious cargo (my wife!), so we're willing to wait. she drives either a '97 avalon (no side airbags) or my old '97 civic hatchback (again, no side airbags), so her next car HAS to have them.

Ordered my liftback. Didn't even get to test drive one, took out a sedan instead. I've only seen 1 liftback on the lot and that was on a Sunday when they were closed (it sold as soon as they opened Monday).

I special-ordered my liftback, since I wanted the power package, ABS, and side airbags as well as a 5-speed trans. I was told by the dealer that no such cars existed in the US on any dealers' lots at the time of my order.

Ordered mine in as well. They didn't have the colour or the model I wanted. They did have a black sand pearl 5 dr RS, but I wanted the LE. Luckily it came with a free 6 CD MP3 upgrade. I waited about 3 weeks I think, mostly due to me being out of town, but otherwise arrived when they said

I bought my liftback off the lot. I had no car at the time. I was thinking sedan, but after testing the liftback, I went for it. I couldn't wait. I didn't see another Yaris on their lot for 2 weeks...

I found mine in a hallway of the dealership(Dallas,TX) behind the showroom, they had two white Liftbacks in stock. I didn't even bother to test drive it, I took delivery that night.
A couple of days later the other white LB sold so they had no more Liftbacks in stock. The 4 doors were more abundant.

Went to dealer with what I wanted and he found one in another state and did a car swap with the other dealer. Had it in two days.
