I Special Ordered my SportCross on October 20, 2003. According to the ordering website, it was to be produced in December 2003. The website for ordering said that 30 days should be allowed for both production and shipment. I talked to the salesmanager today and he said the car had arrived in port, Newark, on January 5th and it should be delivered to the dealership next week!! I am very happy with the surprise early arrival. :D So, it is going to work out to be less than three months from order to delivery. Better than some stories I have read and not bad for a car that had to be built to my specs.

Awesome, and congrats! If there's one thing that i miss the most on my SC it's the LSD. I'm glad to be back in a RWD after a couple year stint with FWD, but without an LSD it's only about half as fun.

question to all: if these cars are made in Japan, why do they arrive in port Newark (NJ)? or do I have the wrong Newark?

My guess: Shipping on water through the Panama Canal and up north again to the States is cheaper than shipping over land from coast to coast.

Still Waiting

Well, my timeframe was a bit premature. I don't understand how the car could be in port in NJ on January 5th and not be at the dealership as of January 26th. :cry: Anyway, it is scheduled to be delivered to the dealership today. However, I can't pick it up until the weekend. The dealer said he would deliver it to me during the week if I would come in and sign the papers but I want to inspect the car before I sign anything. Snow is in the forecast for the first three days of this week anyway. Hopefully, I will be driving it as of January 31st.
