For the record, I don't think you are lying.I'm not sure what I have to gain from lying about it. Do I get more reputation points for it? Do I get more people on an Internet forum who I don't know to like me?
The dealership I bought the car from is in a rural Midwestern town with a population of less than 30,000 and a median household income less than the MSRP of a Type R. This wasn't the only dealership I was in contact with who had no waiting list and zero local demand. If you're largely shopping for this car in urban centers you're doing it wrong. If you're waiting for allocations to pop up on these trackers before you engage these dealerships you're also doing it wrong.
But it does seem strange that your dealership - located in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere - has 70+ people on the waitlist. And that it had 0 last month.
