Nice van...There are several hundred vans hung up at assemble plant in rework status from issues they had while in production.

Post Re: 2019 4x4 Delay

I just got my 4x4 passenger van this month. It was "Produced" but not delivered for about 2 months. I started working on ordering it a year ago, but its been worth the wait. The van is very loaded, but some items were "inhibited" or something, such a the power sliding door. I decided to go ahead a buy the car despite these issues, and I am glad I did.

I believe we are interacting with dealers who are quietly frustrated themselves, but live in this world of delays and inefficient vehicle production and delivery. They have become, in some cases, smug realists with little to offer eager customers other than hopes for allocation shifting and patience. It works, but you do need a dealer who will work with you a little. I had to visit 3 dealerships to find a dealer who was willing to walk down the ordering path with me, and it eventually paid off. Patience with a bit of diplomatic agitating was the key for me.

Question: are you an established customer with your MB dealer?

Itís my 2nd with him but I donít think I got special treatment. Itís Keyes Mercedes in van nyes ca. Ilan is the man. Honestly I think Mercedes gives the bigger dealers faster service. They sell 30-50 G wagons a month. The next biggest dealer sells 3 or 4. My last van came fast too.

Thumbs up Re: 2019 4x4 Delay

Yes kingshade, I think that you are correct. The dealer that got my Sprinter has sold 40 4x4s this year alone. I did not start with him a year ago, and he did get the van for me within a few months. I believe some of the smaller dealers may know this but cannot say it. They may be forced to neglect the 4x4 orders knowing that its hard for them to snag an allocation. Thank you for sharing the information on your dealer. Maybe you will help someone.

By the way, I ordered mine with Jim Plank at MB of Westminster, Colorado. He did a great job with it in my opinion.

As I have said before, I was gonna order one, but had to find one this year so I can avail of the tax deduction.
Finally found one that I could live with. Around 74K, still missing a few things I wanted not needed, but this would work.
Flew out early this AM, picked it up and drove about 500 miles home. Just got in. BIG GRIN. It rained cats and dogs ALL the way home.
2019 Selenite Grey Mettalic 144 4x4 with a lotta goodies and alloy wheels. I was skeptical of the wheels, but I like it. Kumo tires, Hmmmmm!
May have to spring for some new KO tires.

I was told by my salesman that my 19. 140HR 4x4 Crew "Landed at the port" in NJ yesterday. He said itll still be a few weeks until I get it because of whatever they need to check over on the import takes some time. Im just glad it made it across the pond!
