My wife and I have chosen to take the plunge and get an xB. This will be our first new car purchase and are kind of excited that we don't have to do any haggling.

Even though this is true, I've read some people talk down the sales people on add ons. Any recommendations on things we should ask for or how to ask for them? We are looking to cart around a few bikes ride and plan on having kids in the next five years or so and are not planning on doing any real mods to it.

Forgot the details!

2009 Stingray Metallic or Blackberry Crush. Summers get warm here, so I think we might go with the stingray. Still deciding on extras. I think the dealer has them with the applique and floor mats.

Pretty excited!
It is, yet it's not. Dealership said they had the one we wanted in stock, got the financing handled and went to go drive the car one last time. Dealership said "Oh I thought we had one, but we must have sold it." That call was Sunday afternoon, we went in Monday at four pm. They should have it "any time this week."

Slightly frustrated but I understand that buying a car isn't usually fun, but URRGH! I want my xB!!
Got it last night at around 6 pm. Love it so far. My only big complaint is how terrible the iPod controls are. I've got a fairly large music collection and trying to get from Apples in Stereo to The Weakerthans Takes some time.

My wife cant wait to throw our bikes in there and go for a ride!

Thanks for all your help!
I'll give that a try. The wife was able to convince me that she needed the car today, :p , so I'll try it tomorrow.

Any ideas for inexpensive parts/modifications to improve fuel efficiency or keep the vehicle in good health? My brother in law suggested KnD (i think) air filters.
