Dealer told me 6-8 weeks. When I got my VIN they said it would be here in about 3 weeks....that was 3 weeks ago. I don't bother talking to my dealer anymore. I just go on here and go to my vehicle tracking link. My dealer is great, but useless when it comes to knowing when or where my vehicle is.

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

I might be wrong but I beleive it means it's been inputed to be built and scheduled in qeue for manufacturing.

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

D1 means scheduled to be built with a (estimated) delivery date...usually gets to built "I" waiting inspection within 14 days...sometimes under a week. D1 is a very good sign. The tracking after D1 doesn't start until "I" status so it is possible that it is actually being built now in framing, paint, or trim.....but built is just around the corner.... Exciting!

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

D1 - It is like being in a roller coaster...you're belted in and the ride is going up the hill...any moment you'll be at the top and doing down the hill....no turning back now! D is like just getting in the line to the roller coaster and you find out people are holding spots for others and you don't see the end where people are getting loaded into the cars...a long agonizing wait. C is like you're still deciding which roller coast to ride... LOL

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

^^^ I try... If you've ever waited in a long line for a roller coaster you know what I am talking about.... I would add while in D you hear about people riding the coaster but you just hope you're in the right line since you're not really moving and hope the ride is worth it. Well, for the WK2, it is.

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

Guys, here's the bottom line on mine at least...they built in in a flash, less than 3 weeks after I ordered...now it sits in Toledo somewhere...just sitting there. Delivery dates have came and went for weeks now, so dont get hung up on an estimated delivery date, even after it's built. I knew it would be a long wait when I signed up, so I just deal with it and after reading most of the posts...my wait will be worth it!

It is so far. I have only got to drive mine in the dark so far. On the way to work at 5am and home from work at 9 pm.... the headlights work great.
