Why do you say that? The plate is a dealer plate, not a Canadian one. I don't see a tell-tale sign of "Canadianess."

Because American production only began yesterday, unless she built a scale model out of cardboard then this car came from Canada ;)

I spoke to the same dealer, they told me they don't expect the 2016's until more like the 10th. (Next Tuesday).

They were doing training this week using that Touring model

I wonder if they have dished them out to certain dealers today based on expected sales, or simply how easy it is to deliver them there. For example, maybe they are focusing on a certain region first, possibly one that is closer to the factory. Or perhaps, all the dealers are getting them net week.

*Sorry, I can't figure out how to start a new thread!


In anticipation of buying a Touring asap, and wanting to make sure I consider all possible alternatives, I test drove a new 2nd gen Chevy Volt yesterday. Here are my thoughts:
This was a premium trim.
Cost: well over $39,000 (but in CA we get $7,500 fed and $1,500 tax credits).
The drive: Ok, no real zoom, braking was mushy.
Premium?? No sunroof, extremely low headroom in back, terrible sound system, a/c doesn't exactly blow hard at my face, it doesn't have a capless gas tank, no powered seats, etc...
The only real positive is the electric to gas system.
Conclusion: Me no tink so !!!
Give me my Touring NOW.

I visited a south central Pennsylvania dealership today. They have 5 Civics due to arrive next week (11/10-14). They are LX and EX trims. One of the EX's is Modern Steel Metallic with Sensing. I am eager to see that color in person on the new Civic. I have a feeling the arrival dates are going to be drawn out and delayed. The Fit experienced delays but that was primarily because they had to address a change to the front bumper and some A-pillar trim pieces were installed without the "SRS" side curtain airbag insignia on them. I hear the HRV and Pilot models are also hard to come by. Honda has released a decent amount of redesigned/new models recently. Excitement is high and patience is wearing thin.

It would be awesome if someone out there with experience at the dealership level could fully explain the logistics and transportation process so that we can have more realistic expectations.
