Some of the dealers here seem to have a decent amount of them as well, but then when I finally decided I want a red one, I went to one, and they only had copper and corsa blue. The second dealer I went to had a red one that was a demo car with 3300 miles on it, so I said no, but they said they had the same model with no miles. Theres another dealer about 20 minutes ago, I haven't checked in there yet. However the one dealer was telling me that they can't keep souls or koups on the lot, and he has been sending trucks to PA to pick up new ones.

i happened to walk in to my dealer the day after they got a load in.

He was telling me how they were sold out for like 5 weeks, i walked in and they were still all lined up covered head to toe in plastic, had to move like 9 of em to get to the dark cherry with the manual tranny and got the one i wanted :D

lots around here in tampa bay area (about 5 or 6 dealers) seem to have a lot of of EX's koups/sedans, (more sedans) one lot had a heaping pile of the LX or do i have it backwards- whichever one is the fuel sipper model- (that was the lot where i got my SX koup)
colors seem to be mainly a lot of red/blue/silver for the koups, dont remember colors on the sedans cuz i wasnt looking for one......
the sales guy i bought my koup from (as if he did anything more than shuffle paper- if the car was sitting on a shelf, i could have picked it out myself and handed the paperwork to the finance guy....and a hell of a lot faster- lol- and sales people wonder why we hate them?) he kept telling me about the ECO feature on my SX koup w/6 speed- i still have yet to see the ECO light telling me i am saving gas.....ahahahaahahahahh.......best part was him trying to explain how to connect the bluetooth to my phone........lawdy.....i ended up telling him i wouldnt be using it just to keep him from talking about it. that same sales guy kept telling me about them selling a lot of these fortes/koups.....but other than a rental i saw at work-i have still yet to see one driving around tampa. and from having checked the dealers websites, several times daily for about 6 weeks straight- they are not moving the ones on their web sites......same stock nbrs over and over again.
i need to get my paper work from the sale- i think my car (black SX koup 6spd w/leater) was actually shipped to canada first......might explain the 14 or so miles on it when i went for my test drive......(they drove it down from canada- lol)

the dealership across from my school has about 10 of each, the one I got my sedan from the same. I got lucky and was the first person to buy one from the dealership period. Got the showroom model with 14 miles on it

My car was on the lot since late April 2010, at least. It has a battery load test from then, seems they cannot sell manual ones for shit up here. and there are at least 4 others, and one of them black, on this base. i do beleive i have the only Black SX up here though.
