Long time member... My 02 WRX finally is being laid to rest at 236,000 miles.
So it's time for a new one.
I bought a 2013 from a dealership on an order that someone else walked away from. They told me it was already shipped, but they couldn't tell me when it would arrive in port or when the dealership would actually receive the car. I find this very unsettling since I am with out a car until the new one comes in. They also could not tell me the vin#. They said they had one but there were too many 0s in the number and it wasn't accurate. They said once it reaches port the vins are confirmed? If this car exists, shouldn't it have a vin?
Is this common practice among dealerships? I don't know the logistics behind how cars are imported, but I figure it should be easy to track new orders. Am I wrong to think this?
Any insight or help from members would be great.
Thanks in advance.
The only thing I do know is it will come into Davisville, RI....
