I asked one of the moderators the same question and it is a possiblity
If the dealer has the actual VIN number, then that means they have been allocated that vehicle in their coming allotment, and generally they cannot take a deposit if they do not have an actual vehicle allocated. So the dealer having the VIN and taking a deposit on that VIN is key.Hello all!
Salesman thinks it'll be here in less than a month (I have my doubts!).
Thank you for this information. I never saw a vin number, and upon checking my paperwork, I realize I didn't get a copy of the 'order'. Just a receipt for the deposit. Interesting. We did give them three color choices, so who knows what they have planned to get a vehicle in (dealer swap or whatever)....it's a Hendrick dealer so they do have a few dealerships to pull from (I imagine - but honestly I don't know how any of that works. It's my first time ordering a vehicle).If the dealer has the actual VIN number, then that means they have been allocated that vehicle in their coming allotment, and generally they cannot take a deposit if they do not have an actual vehicle allocated. So the dealer having the VIN and taking a deposit on that VIN is key.
Given this... generally they receive their deliveries about 2 to 3 weeks after the allocation list is received by the dealer, and they can pre-sell (via deposit holds) to buyers. Deposits are supposed to be refundable as well.
We now have a dedicated Hybrid section on CRVOC. Look in the forum listing.
For general questions pertaining to the Gen5, don’t forget to search that area too.
I haven’t looked but I can foresee a gas mileage topic being popular for Hybrids. 😄
Still haven't got mine yet. This whole COVID19 mess has delayed it. We also decided to stick to our original color choice, so of course that has not helped (they were trying to pull from existing inventory). We may be waiting for a while until the factory gets cranked up again......but no worries, we're not going anywhere for a while!
We're looking at the red EX-L with the grey interior.what was the spec you built?
Hey @kloker , do you think we should rename the Hybrid section of the Forum? <---just kidding, its April Fool's Day after all.I do think it's hilarious that my gas mizing car has a VIN with the 2-5 letters, "FART." :-D
Hearty congrats!Just to put a button on this thread: we finally took delivery of our red crv hybrid! We picked it up late yesterday (6/1). So far so good after 5 miles!
