Unbelievable!

My car has been built and has been just sitting in the parking lot the last 2 weeks. WTF!!?? I have talked to several people, including the dealer and the transit company. There are no holds, no problems, they just won't ship it, and have no clue as to when they will. I offered several times to fly down and get it, even pay for it before I did, but they won't let me do it. Why leave it sitting in the parking lot, waiting for the next hail storm?

No wonder they are in the state they are. If I ran a business like that, I'd be broke too...

Somewhere in the Oshawa parking lot. It is waiting for a train but none seems to want to pick it up, and they don't know when...

There are a lot of stupid things that happen apparently when these cars are being made. I'm 8 hours from the plant and its been two weeks since my car has shipped and im told i will have it by this friday, Its been all over the ohio, kentucky and it's finally in pennsylvania on a truck. You just never know the logic in some of this stuff.

Jesus that is bad..... WTF.

Too bad your dealer just can't send a damn pickup down there with a trailer and drive it home. Hell I'd fly in and take a cab to the lot........

Im going to Brooklyn, MI snowmobiling in late december, if its still there I'll load it up in my sled trailer for ya and meet ya half way!

it's probably coz they're waiting for a train to fill up enough to head your way... stick with it- it should get there b4 the snow flies. i'm glad you did not cancel; i recall you were pretty fed up a couple weeks ago and now this...

I did cancel my order 2 weeks ago. That was the first one. Then a dealer in Ontario turned me on to this car - he saw it in the system - being built for a Calgary dealership but no owner. I jumped on it. The day I bought it was the day it was built. Been sitting there ever since. I am cursed!

2 weeks is not unusual. Mine was built June 2 but arrived by rail June 25. It was only on the train 3 days.

Yeah scrappy, the last 2 weeks has been hell. I thought the first 10 weeks were bad but knowing your car is complete and done and so close to my dealer sucks so bad. I am dying to get this car, it's been almost 12 weeks, i know thats not bad but i was told 8-10 for sure. I have to stop coming to this site and seeing all the happy people here everyday driving their cars, UGH!!!!!

I feel for ya har. I plan on ordering in december or so, so it SHOULD get here in march or april after we lose the snow. I am hoping that since it is nut shrivling cold out I won't miss it much. A garage full of sleds helps too.....

It should be here any day and you should get some driving out of it before the snow flies. Good luck. post some pice when you get her.
