So the longer I have to wait the more the compensation I would be allowed (At least I get something for my troubles and its very nice and professional for them to do that). SoA said they will figure out compensation when I get a VIN with delivery date. Compensation will be in the form of either paying for accessories or letting me add accessories (I don't have) on at no charge. So while it's not ideal and the SoA person said I might have to wait until December and perhaps January they will make it right.
My suggestion for anyone else in my situation is to call SoA, be polite and ask for the same compensation. SoA as most know are now telling dealers 16 weeks of waiting until car hits port. They told us guys in the start closer to 6-10 weeks like they did me. I've waited a total of 14 weeks so far. Hopefully my car comes in soon!
I think I ordered same thing as yours except for maybe color and few more accessories, I hope this doesn't happen to me.. as I was told to wait 16 wks.. and I don't want to wait extra day or two for a car.
when you find out why your car was on hold, please share
btw, why don't they offer cash compensation? then you could put more for deposit
