Hello....everyone

I just turn 24 and have had my deposit down now for about 7 months......I got imaged on 3/22, so the process is going....My one question is, why does it seem to take so long to ship these cars to people. My dealer said it said shipped about 2 weeks ago and still not here......Ernest said shipped 6 days ago and still not there. I drove to miami and took my time in three days and that is further than delaware to the twin cities....Are these truckers taking day long breaks......getting lost....explain......I understand they have to drop off cars and other dealers but that can't take more than 1 hour....CONFUSED

Your image went in on 3/22 and the car shipped 2 weeks ago? Since today is only 3/23, that means it shipped long before your image was accepted. Something doesn't add up.

What happens is many of the cars ship via Rail Road. Also even those with truck delivery are slower than with other automobiles; here is why
Trucks removed whole loads of SKYs from the plant -- unload them at a central yard where they are sorted and loaded either on Trains or trucks headed to other centrally located car depots. There they are loaded onto trucks with cars going either to the same dealer or nearby (on the way) dealers so that they can "make a run" out of it. Same with the trains -- they have to go to central yards and be unloaded onto trucks -- same as above...
How does that sound?
Normally -- a truckload of Saturn Ions is sent to your dealer or perhaps two dealers direct from the factory or train yard.
