Seems like all Southern California dealers are getting their first shipment in Now. I also tracked the VIN to be delivered on the 20th but it did come in sooner and I will be getting it on Monday!

Shoot, we got a build date of next Tuesday and our van was NOT delievered as they said it would! We have to wait until October now because of the noodle brains at Weseloh. We are even the first on the list.

LHOdy, you getting along with Weseloh? They're really ticking me off.

We realize that the ODY is in such demand, that the dealers really don't have any control over when they receive their allotment, so we are just trying to be patient. At least they are selling it to us at MSRP and they are close to home. It doesn't mean that we are not frustrated though. We have had our deposit in since June 18th. It will be worth waiting for.

If you got a next Tuesday build date, your van should ship a day or so after that, I tracked the rail and it took only 4 days for it to get to Los Angeles. Kind of fun to track it across country. It arrived in L.A. two days earlier than projected, however it has been here since Thursday evening the 13th, and still has not been delivered to the dealer yet.

They promised to have it prepped and to me the day the receive it. I hope that will be this Monday.

Good luck with yours, and hang in it is getting close.

REALLY????????

You just made my day. They told us something like 30 days to be shipped. Woohoo!

Now, did they give you the VIN or did you have to fight it out of them? I think it'd be fun to track it. My step dad thinks getting the VIN is silly, but I'm sure he'll appreciate my *knowledge* of the whereabouts of our van at dinner every night!

I'm trying to be patient with the dealer. I'd imagine that the problem is my step dad because I usually bug him for information and then the lazy butt has to call. (oh noooo). So then he's irked and the information gets warped. But Weseloh was really nice when they've called and I had to take a message.

I've gotta be more optimistic about this. It's just fustrating to have waited for nearly a year (we got on the '01 list last November) and have yet to see anything.

My salesman knew that we were anxious to get any information that we could, because we were being the squeaky wheel by calling him on a regular basis, so he promised to call as soon as he had the information and did. He is also frustrated, because Honda does not give them very much information, and he has 6 on order.


I made an error on my initial calculation, it took 7 days to get from the factory to L.A.

Yeah, I saw that you had said it took a week. I figure that means it'll be the beginning of October.

Are you dealing with Wally?

Sounds Like Wesloh Honda in SJC will sell an 02 at MSRP. Does anyone have a good contact name for Wesloh Honda?

Yes, I think they are selling at MSRP (well, with so many places to order from they need to keep their market open). We are dealing with Wally Ruzeki (not sure of last name spelling), he's the fleet manager. You can also send an email inquiry to him on the form at http://www.weselohhonda.com.

I don't know how long of a wait it is, but when we ordered our '01 last November, they told us April. Then we switched to 2002 in March, so we don't know anything. I'm estimating our wait to be about two months.

Help me here: We have a build "date" of 9/23-9/28. Does that mean it should ship within a day or two of it being built?

It should. Ours is supposed to be built next Tuesday, and LHOdy said that they usually ship the day after they're built. Then it's about a week in transit, and then I'd give them another week to lose the van, find it, and what not. Yours will probably come in the beginning of October.

Although the train arrived in LA on the evening of Sept. 13th, the dealer will not get the car until tomorrow Sept. 18th. So it will be 5 days from its arrival in LA till the dealer has possession of the car. Oh well!
