The New Toyota of Orlando
Another reason to drive to the dealership was to see the new location for Toyota of Orlando. The old location was on Colonial Drive and Mercy, next to the Nissan dealership. It's now located in the general area of the Mall of Millenia, sitting on Vineland Road just north-east of The Holy Land Experience and next to Harley Davidson, bordered on two sides by Vineland and I-4. Compared to its prior location, the new location is huge. The old dealership's interior could have fit into a corner of the new dealership and gotten lost in the process.
As I said the old interior was pretty small. There was no space to hold any vehicles on display. In the new location there's plenty of room. This Scion, tucked into one corner, is wide open to the rest of the interior.
I'll get a chance to visit the place some more in the near future. The wife is now thinking of purchasing her very own Prius and wants to test drive the various models. She test drove a standard 2012 Prius 3 today. I advised that she make very sure that it's a Prius she wants, and not the Fiat 500C. She's going to think about it, but in the mean time she's pulling all the facts together about the 2012 standard Prius. Time will tell.
