Exclamation

I've been waiting for my new (2018 Accord Touring 2.0 - Black) since 11th of December. Due to delays it has been pushed four times.

The dealer contacted his rep from Honda Canada and they indicated the train it was on had mechanical issues and was stuck in Toronto.

Is this normal? Reasonable?

I usually have purchased what was on hand on the lot. However, since there were no 2.0's at that time in market I decided to wait and get exactly what I wanted.

Mechanical issues with trains are completely normal. They take a lot of abuse.

Maybe, higher demand?

Guys, when your car finally gets in, take your time inspecting it before taking delivery. Forum members have found uneven spaces between body panels especially the hood. There's a current post today by one guy who found scratches on his bumper, and the back seat was crushed "like an 800 pound man sat on it." During transportation either by truck or train, those cars are out in the open in harsh climates. A lot of people have handled them, driven them on and off trainers & trains.

Well said, but are you "fat-shaming" the Honda dealership employee who may have cleaned the car getting it ready for purchase?

Be sure to check for out-of-state and/or overly irregular pebbles in all the tire treads...some dealers are trying to deliver cars with those still attached.

Thanks for the tip. What exactly do you mean?

I don't know but it sounds like we need a 50 State Pebble Identification Reference Book.

Thanks for the replies.

The dealership I have been working with is excellent. They even have provided me with a vehicle to use in the meantime (at no charge). They likely didnt anticipate it being delayed this long as well.

The dealership I bought it from is a 3.5 hour drive from where I am and they indicated they will bring the car to me once they receive it etc etc. It is very generous of them and saves me 7 hours.

Having said that, based on the feedback in other threads as well some of the comments provided, Im thinking I should go to the dealership to pickup the car.

Sound rationale?

Yeah, those fatties don't work as hard when the car is already sold. They work harder on the ones they'll be putting out in the front lot.

I got a fair price. Plus they put me in a car for the last 6 weeks for free. All good!
