how long does it take to get???

went to the dealership on Sat (5/13/17) and ordered a new compass . On Wednesday (5/17/17) the salesman call me up and said it will be 5 months for delivery . whats up with that? I thought delivery would be around 4-6 weeks. has anyone else come across this too or do I need to see another dealer?

That sound reasonable , remember the compass is made in Mexico now. With trumps wall going up they have to bring it in peace by peace thought he tunnel system the Mexican have made.. take time to do that... LOL

LOL @hotvak123 , great explanation.

But a 5 month-ish delivery does seem really long but it'll fly by

I heard from a different dealer that it takes 5 months for dealer invoices and that customer orders jump in front of the line. Hope this is true.

Are there none at the dealerships that fit your needs? Just asking, I had them scour the region to find me the color/model I wanted. A week later I have it.

I am sure yours will be just as fast... 5 month is just to long, hell I be out looking at the dealer lots if I had to wait that long...

It seems like the dealers around here don't have all the options i want or have to many and way out of my price range.

This dealership is just about on my last nerve. Almost a week has past and I found out today my car is not ordered yet! The salesman said they are starting to make the 2018's. Does anyone know when the 18 are suppose to be out? No wonder it will take 5 months. This is not turning out to be a nice experience.

Yeah the 5 months makes sense for a 2018. So I guess what he is saying is that you can't order a 2017.5?
