Longest time with a loaner?

So, I've been in a loaner compass since December 21, waiting on a new oil cooler which is on back order for my wk2 and I'm growing quite impatient.

Curious to know, what's the longest time you've been in a loaner and why it took so long?

Longest was about a week while an air leak that only occurred at very low temps (usually first thing in the morning) was being diagnosed.

Almost a month, 11/24/2015 to 12/21/2015, to replace the leaking AC evaporator and heater core. That was way, way too much time.

Re: Longest time with a loaner?

Seven weeks while my Focus was in the body shop for the second time. First time I waited three weeks for a separate repair.

Re: Longest time with a loaner?

a week, while they ordered the wrong parts 3 times to replace the shark fin antenna. they gave me a V8 challenger so I wasn't complaining, maxcare has given me good cars the multitude of times I have used the rental option.

Re: Longest time with a loaner?

5 weeks for me on my M5 stinks just having the car sit waiting for parts but it happens even with other brands

Longest time with a loaner?

I had my '14 altitude in the shop for 10+ weeks (collectively). But once I got a regional manager involved I was taken out of the 14 and given my 15 almost immediately.

Re: Longest time with a loaner?

Wow, some of you have had a loongg time in a loaner, I hope it was at least comparable or better to the vehicle you own.

Re: Longest time with a loaner?

I was in an accident a long time ago when some dumbass ran a red light and I hit him. It took one month for the insurance company (State Farm at the time) just to decide whether or not they would fix the car. Then the body shop fixed it, and did a terrible job matching the paint. So they had to repaint the rest of the car to match. It was still not very good, but close enough for insurance standards.

I was in a POS Escort for over 3 months. I was not exactly pleased.

I'm jealous, we had a loaner for about a week while the dealer fixed ou. First time we got an Avenger which was a dog, absolute worse vehicle I've ever driven. We then got placed into a Challenger, but it was the V6 model with the old 5 speed which was a dog as well. At least my wife is now on board for me buying a Challenger in the future.
