I agree. This isn't 1995 any more. Consumers are more empowered than ever with information and an easier ability to contact and purchase from dealers anywhere. I had the opportunity to order from another dealer and drop-ship, but I thought I'd do the right thing and support a local business.

Also, to to be honest, at that point, there weren't any rumblings about Kona, just Tuxedo Black and Red Candy.

While I agree, the question is, was your sales man a GOOD salesman.

I got a call from a dealership today trying to unload a Kona Blue Titanium hatch, but I'm too far in love with the sterling grey. He's up in Valencia, CA if anyone's interested!

Aside from silenthill and the OP, has anyone else had their Kona Blue order rejected? Would think on this forum with so many people buying the 2012 more people would be affected.

FWIW my Kona Blue is scheduled for the week of May 23 and according to the dealer no problems so far.

My dealer has told me that if your car has been assigned a VIN # it will not be cancelled...
