ok did anyone have any trouble w/ your dealer after you ordered your car. my car has been on order for 10 weeks now and they told me that i would get an update every 2 weeks. but this has yet to happen. so i called them and they said "order has been placed, its made and is in shipping" but they don't know where its at.

shouldn't they know?? or shouldn't they be able to find out where it is or rufley how much longer i have to wate?

they seem to have absolutley no information for me, or any idea what is going on w/ the car. I feel like going somewhere else but seeing how its been 10 weeks now and they GLADLEY took my deposit i have no choice but to wate it out. :evil:

My situation was exactly the same. They lose visibility once the car gets on the ship. They have approximate dates for when it will hit port but getting that info is like pulling teeth.

I knew when my STi hit the regional distribution center but things got very vague after that. IT's like they lose all process control and stuff just shoots out from there in a random manner. You'll know when you're close when the delaer gives you the VIN number and tells you that they've been invoiced. At that point the car is on a truck and heading to the dealer....but beware once again..getting an actual delivery date for when the truck will arrive is a hair pulling contest. Shipping is very predictable for the most part yet they give the impression that it's not.

My salesguy has been great to work with. He's relayed all the info he's received throughout my waiting period. Most of it has been wrong, though, so he's been mislead too. The dealership is footing the bill for the rental car they gave me to bridge the gap from my 3rd party car sale, on what would have been my trade-in, to the receipt of my car. They expected 1 week or so at $28/day. It's now been in my possession for almost 5 weeks ...$980 worth of time.

So, to answer your question :) there's a distinct lack of communication within the distribution channel for these cars and nobody can provide exact info on your car. Just hang in there. Good luck!

My latest is that I'm scheduled to pick up my car Saturday at 10:00am. At this point the dealer doesn't have the car yet...so we'll see. They've been invoiced for is so it _should_ be close. Good luck on yours.

Cary's right outside of Raleigh, so we're about 2hrs south of Petersburgh Va. Or, about an hour or so south of the Va border.
