I test drove one on the weekend and was told up to 4 months for some, I suppose it depends which colour and manual/auto and if they already have it. Where abouts are you?

I ordered a white VT on July 19 and had to cancel the order and accept a matt grey VT instead to get it a little faster. Got it on Sept 12 and am in love with the car...

Im in the Toronto Area. Ordered my matte grey on Aug 20 something. I was told 8-12 weeks. Then while talking to my dealer he advised me that one would be arriving Sept 20 or 22nd. I hope they are BSing me cuz I cant wait any longer. Actually I was good with 12 weeks, but now that they gave me a sooner date I will be pissed if its late.

Ok...on a Matte Grey I can see a wait, cause let's be honest...it's hot as hell...

But I don't know if I'd EVER wait 3 months for a car otherwise.
I love my VT to pieces, but 3 months is a long time.

Plus the longer you wait, the closer it gets to the 2014 models and such so perceived value is lowered (in my mind).

Only middle of last month? I've been waiting four and I just got my VT last Friday.

Fact is, there was a huge workers strike at the Hyundai manufacturing plant in S. Korea that's just ended recently (been going on since early June) and is the reason why hardly any VT's are being delivered. They should start to arrive soon, but if you're really impatient just do what I did: send a letter to Hyundai Consumer Affairs telling them how disappointed you are that these cars aren't appearing in your area. Two weeks ago, I went from being told to pick up my deposit because the dealership wasn't sure if/when their stock was going to arrive too "Your car has arrived" in a matter of days.



See? Second VT owner in AZ. Love my VT.

Yours will be part of the first and only production run, same as mine. Should have it soon!!

LOL, I ordered my 370Z in August 09 and received it January 20th 2010.... THAT was a long wait for a sports car to be delivered in the middle of an Alberta winter....

I have been told in Vic from one place it can be up to 6 months, from others 6 weeks to 12 weeks (I believe more 12 than 6).
I wonder if the wait is due to that dealership already having its allocation?

But I have also been told that the colour and transmission will make the time vary as well.

Thats sad to hear that people are having to wait so long. I told my dealer what I wanted Sept 15 and picked it up on Sept 22. Of course I wanted Vit C but I was told that wouldnt happen so I settled for the elite white.

our order date was about the 19th of Oct, Im guessing the dealer is being very conservative with our delivery date (the vehicle is also being leased thru leaseplan which also got us a sizable fleet discount :) ).

Hey Bex, that is exactly what I'm looking to pay with mats :p

I'll go $35,500 with tinting. I'm not paying the $595 they qouted for tinting to me when i can get it done for $300 elsewhere

absolutely - I'll be getting the tinting done myself & won't pay more than about $300 for it to be done either... But I'm pretty happy with the price given the supply/demand issues :)

I've had all $37000+ qoutes so far except one which said $36200 but happy to deal, so I'll speak to him first, but I'll happily walk if I don't get what I want.

I would pay more tho :p
