Did anyone get test drive, in west end GTA? I won't buy anything without test drive it.
both dixie and erinwood said nobody have the car for test drive, what's going on?
Thats correct. These are factory order cars, none in stock in GTA.

You can just test drive the gas version of it. Everything else is the same except the engine and transmission I believe.

Also test drive the titanium trim as it's configured close to the electric version.

2nd edit: or try the Nissan Leaf if you want to see how it feels to drive a electric car :)

Does anyone has Auto show discount still available? If you are not planning to use it, I am willing to buy it. Please PM if anyone has it.
It has name and address on it so probably won't be able to transfer to another person.

There's used ones around.

I think if you test drive a regular Focus and a Leaf, you'd probably get pretty close. A C-Max Energi would give an idea of how compromised the trunk space is.

Putting down a deposit today, have the paperwork. Is it normal to put down a depost and THEN do the credit check etc after the car comes in?
NEver done a lease before and trust dealers as far as I can throwthem :(
This might be one of the few times it makes sense to ask for a deposit, they are ordering you a car that they wouldn't normally have on their lot. I am guessing that they have to do a credit check around the same time as you sign the final lease deal, not months ahead? When I did my truck lease I put $1000 down so they would order me a factory one, I have no idea when they did the credit check though.

I can't comment on what the "normal" procedure is, but in my case I paid no deposit and the credit check was done immediately - my Transunion account shows this, just hours after.

I would have a really hard time buying any vehicle that I could not test drive...like how would you know if you like how it feels driving? You could hate the damn thing and be stuck with it...
RFD is love. RFD is life. I wish I had an RFDer for a wife.

As has been mentioned many times go test drive a Focus titanium. Very similar.

Eh, maybe people are different?

Can't speak for others, but I'm treating this from a utilitarian point of view. $9K over 3 years, $600 "gas" for 60,000Km, almost zero maintenance. Even if I hate the way it handles and drives, I'm willing to put up with it for what I'm paying. If I remotely cared about the way it feels or drives, I would test drive the gas Focus, but I can't even be bothered to do that.

$34700 base model 72 month finance, dealer saying 6 month delivery to be on the safe side.
Looks like you can only submit ev charger and installation rebate once 14k rebate is applied for.

That price is taxes in, right?

Affordable wireless is possible, just takes some creativity.

Yeah just put a deposit down in Ottawa today too.

Did you put a deposit down or actually sign lease papers? How long did they tell you it will take?
