I think there are a few of us that got lucky - getting 2+ months earlier than expected
2013 WRB WRX Limited Sedan
I went to the dealer today because of just a lack of communication. They said my car was probably on a boat. They don't have a vin or eta? Does anyone know when they actual put into Subaru tracking system the vin and eta. I figured it wasn't until they reached the RI at port. That way if they lose a container of cars they didn't already report that as on its way to the owners. Does anyone know where the December allocation is? Or when they anounce the January allocation?
If you placed and order, there will be a VON (vehicle order number) issued when your order has been accepted into their system. Once the vehicle is ready to be built, the VIN will be issued. Talk to the dealer, they should be able to give you a VON at a minimum. Once you have that number, you can call Subaru Customer Support. They will be able to give you a status update.
Already have a Von. Ordered 6 weeks ago just don't think they can ship the car in less than 2 weeks. They never informed me of ordering issues and promised it within 8 weeks.
I got my $500 credit by calling and complaining about the length of my wait. I placed my order on 9/10/12 for a 2013 STi. Around the end of October, beginning of November, my order status went to "HOLD". My dealer told me to call and complain to SOA. I did a couple times a few weeks apart. Typical complaints, "it's been inconvenient, other manufactures don't do this, etc". That's when I requested some form of compensation for my troubles, I was offered $500. My vehicle is scheduled to arrive at the dealer on 12/10/12.
But who knows....I'll believe it when it actually gets here.
