Has anyone else ordered a car from dealer and is taking forever to get? I ordered mine in early Feb. and car shipped from factory April 16th, and has been sitting in Windsor since April 21st waiting to be shipped. Dealer can not get any answers from GM if and when it will ever be shipped to Manitoba. I'm to the point of just canceling order and buying something else. Will be making my second car payment next week on a car I don't have and can't be told when I will have it!

Wtf. You should NEVER pay for a car you don't have.

I financed through my bank,way better interest rate. I put financing into place one week after car shipped, as I was told shipping was 2 weeks. That was 5 weeks ago. Money is sitting in my bank account. I have not payed dealer yet, but because bank gave me money need pay for it. I would just go buy another one if there was one in stock anywhere.

I had the exact same problem. The dealer sent someone to Windsor to drive the car to Toronto for me. I got it last week after it sat there for three weeks.

Interesting - I ordered my V Sedan in BD on April 8th or so, and I told them to take their time as my lease isn't up until the end of July and the dealer didn't want to eat my lease payments (I got them down near cost on the purchase price). The car showed up at the dealer on May 12th, and so it shall sit until they want to make a deal to close before the end of May...or June...or July. Patience is a virtue. :)

FYI - I'm in Mississauga.

Isn't the vehicle in the hands of a car hauling company after it left the plant? It shouldn't GM that is holding the car is it?

I know there was an issue a couple of months ago involving Allied (hauling company), GM and Chrysler with a couple of lawsuits being initiated back and forth...

Not sure what the status of this dispute is now, whether the lawsuits have been withdrawn or if there are still hard feelings among the parties involved. Nothing in the news lately, so perhaps it's all been settled?

Best regards,

Same thing happened to me.
Ordered my V the first week of March.
They told me 6 to 8 weeks. The care was built on March 23rd and sat in Windsor for
3 weeks with no firm ETA to ship to Whitby.
I ended up getting the dealer to send a retired gentlemen to pick it up. Not ideal but I didn't want to wait indefinitely, plus I had my other car sold.

Good luck!

Ended up taking delivery April 30.

Not sure who's hands it is in ,they can't tell me a thing other than last "scan" was Windsor 5 weeks ago. Even if shipping is delayed 5 weeks is a little long! And they tell me it is 2 weeks from time it leaves Windsor to get to me. That makes it 16 weeks from date of order to get a car!!
