What would be the biggest deciding factor for you choosing one? Would it be price, color, dealer options, trim levels. etc......? Whatever it is post it up here. It might help people out in choosing which one to take.
With any new vehicle I purchase financing rates and promos are actually my biggest deciding factor. If the dealership I'm going to has a a good rate and even better promotions then most likely I'm walking out of there with a new purchase.
For me its the availability of the exact options and color I want. I tend to change my mind quickly when it comes to buying things. So if they dont have the exact one I want right away I might just go buy something else. I hate being on a wait list for any vehicle.
I'd have to say getting what you want. At this price, you should get the exact options and color you want (especially if you are buying). I checked out a Highlander Hybrid, and I got . . . No discount, all Toyota offers don't count, you need to be flexible on color, you need to be flexible on timing, you need to be flexible on options. All that for a $7,000 hybrid upcharge?
As for waiting, I don't think pricing the JX will get much more flexible until Acura updates the MDX, Volvo updates the XC90 and Mercedes is out with their new GL. Just no valid competition at this point.
