I’m on my 3rd Inside Delivery Advisor after the 2nd one said I would have a VIN in October. This one said mid-November but has not been communicative. He did tell me that I couldn’t apply for a lease until my VIN is assigned but today I got an email my delivery date was coming up and I could fill out the lease app which I did. Anyone else experiencing this mild state of confusion?

Yes, me too!

I was contacted 2 weeks ago saying that my VIN was imminent by an advisor who said he was filling in for my advisor who was on vacation. He said that my car would be produced before the end of this month and delivery would definitely be in December. I sent an email this morning as I have yet to get my VIN, and there is much to be done on my end before delivery. I told my original DA that I need at least 3 weeks to schedule a flight for pickup, and we're now running into the Christmas rush. Not sure their estimate is realistic.

My DA emailed me yesterday saying that my VIN should come this week. They said 2-6 week for delivery from VIN notification. 🤞
I’m in the Boston area. This time of year between here and California weather events have been known to occur. I had a ‘61 Chevy Bel Air 409 I sold to a guy in Vancouver a few yrs back and the car got stuck in Chicago for 2 weeks. We shall see.

So when you get your VIN that means your car is finished or not always?
No you get the VIN before the car is finished - it comes when it is in production from what I have seen. We got our VIN before we knew when our car would deliver. BUT we ended up getting a different car that matched our order from a person who was not ready to take delivery when their car was done. We then got a new VIN for the car we took delivery for a few days later.

I was called a couple of weeks ago saying my VIN was immanent. I never heard back until I got the call today saying my car was done. I said I never got my VIN and my DA emailed me an hour later with it.

I just learned more from you than I have from 3 delivery specialists.
