My truck came arrived at the dealership last week Thursday 3-12-20. The dealer did the inspection and it was perfect, so the salesman called and told me the good news. I asked him to have it undercoated and windows tinted then I would pick it up. He told me would be middle of next week! I said fine no problems see you next week.

WELL NOW........................

Everything is closing or closed and I have no new truck. The truck is somewhere between the undercoating shop, window tinter or dealership. The dealership is running a very small skeleton staff and nobody knows nothing or sees nothing ( Sargent Schultz). My son works at a different car dealership ( Honda ) they have closed completely for 30 days so he is out of work and they have cars just sitting. I know there are a lot of huge problems in the world right now but this SUCKS!!!!!
 
Bummer
Maybe you can get it back before they finish it?
 
I just called my dealer and told them to wrap up what they were doing so I could get the truck. Anything not done accessory wise by tomorrow can wait.
 
Update, salesman called me they are getting back from undercoating and hope to deliver Thursday or Friday. As far as I am concerned the sooner the better with how rapid our virus situation is. So many places closed. Other concern is warranty or problems. My 2015 Chevy has been bullet proof. If this truck needs any warranty right away its going to have to wait
 
That's good news Papa - Can't wait to see some pics of it!

thanks but with the news of the plants closing kinda feel horrible for the others waiting
 
My truck is still sitting in a rail yard. Its been there since Monday. Its two hours from my dealer. I've heard rumors of a shelter in place order coming soon for my area too. I sure hope I can somehow grab it before that goes in effect.....
 
I was messaging my buddy this morning back in Michigan. His Nephew works in one the Ford Plants in the area. He knows that ground travel/shipping is still taking place. Take that with a grain of salt, but that’s the understanding of at least one employer.

Thank you! I sure hope it arrives soon. I have projects planned that I need a truck for. These next few weeks may be a good time to do those!!

Hopefully the dealership will remain open and can make the delivery, I'm still waiting on mine. They have a skeleton staff and noting much is going on. I keep thinking it would be great to get it but will there be huge discounts when this is over and am I making a mistake picking it up now????
 
You're having the same thoughts and discussions I've been having.......The smart move is to wait it out. We both know that though. I've been without a truck since October and this truck has been on order since the 4th of November. The anticipation level for me is through the roof. I'm slowly telling myself to chill out and not force this issue as my finances could only benefit from waiting a little longer.

Same thoughts but in your case you need a truck and if this lasts a long time will be really nice to have it.
My situation is different I have a perfectly good 2015 Chevy 3500 Duramax low miles and ready to take on the world. I don't need a new truck. For sure the discounts will be up and there will be financing options with little or no interest. But with factories closed it could take a long time to get a truck.

Then there is the warranty and parts availability issues...................................... another thread???

Cool. So you found out delivery is still happening? I was told today mine is on a train and will be out here no later than 4/25; hopefully, like others have experienced, it will show up surprisingly sooner.
