We pretty much have to call around every dealer in the four county areas. Some didn't know what Clarity was (or maybe pretended so that they don't have to deal with us). We found one that said something like "Oh, interesting. Let me look into that..." And what ensued was a few weeks of constant "nagging" for updates and process checks ending up with them finally figuring out how to get one. No discount. Pay straight up MSRP or no deal. I believe this is not an assumption on their part since they had to do a lot of calling around, negotiating, escalating to make it happen. I asked them if they wanted me to spread the word that they can do this and their response, both the actual sales manager, and the general manager in unison was "Oh, lord, please DON'T!!"
So, the outtake is, there is a way. But it is clearly not simple, and the impression I have is that had they known what they were getting themselves into, they wouldn't have done it. But they have my money and I have the agreement in hand.
Since we never thought we would actually buy a new car in our lifetime, so, I suppose we had to make it a special unicorn. I will believe it when I have the key (fob) in my hand, sitting in one.
