I should get my VIN tomorrow. The dealer might have it now, but I'm planning on stopping by. I'd rather make one trip, than two (regardless if the dealer is two houses away or not).

I've been hearing the same thing from my dealer. I keep asking for a VIN number but he keeps telling me that until the building process begins he won't have one. He also said it's supposed to be built this week.....but tomorrow is Friday. Kinda feel like he's not sure and telling me what I want to hear. Starting to get a little annoyed.

The DORA (Dealer Order Receipt Acknowledgment) report comes out once a week on Thursday. He doesn't know anything until he reads that report and then it's another week until he knows anything more. The best time to call to see if a VIN has been created is Friday, calling or dropping in on any other day is a waste of your time and his time.

VIN is always assigned before the unit is built.

I looked it up in the sticker thing, and nothing was brought up. It said "The VIN entered was not found in our system. VIN requested is 1FAHP3N22CL145236."

Thanks for the info. Tried ETIS and the sticker producer, with no success. It's a fresh VIN for sure.

I have a VIN, but then again, I've always had a VIN, cause it's a dealer ordered car. In case anyone is curious, it's 1FAHP3N27CL101863. It was built on March 2nd, but I'm assuming it's being held form delivery due to these pesky MFT issues. The dealership has emailed me numerous times saying that the car will be in "anytime."

"Anytime..."
