I asked if they had a VIN yet and he did not, so I then asked how he would know about the ultimate delivery when it had not even been sequenced yet? The sales guy said he was just getting his info from his manager. Do you think they held off ordering for some reason, and is it a coincidence that the order number is all zeros?
It is a large volume dealer, so I wouldn't think quotas for the SHO would have a negative effect.
Comments welcome. Thanks for your service.
Did you give a deposit? You should at least have a VIN, all customer orders are prioritized above stock orders. I would see if I could try again because there is absolutely no reason to not put your order in.
Was there something bizarre about the SHO you ordered?
