This has gone beyond ludicrous. If I had just got my re ordered back in Sept when the first date was canceled. I would have the van already. Just does not make sense.

Anyone have an update on colors from Charleston, or are we still stuck with 3?

Before my current order of a Tenorite Grey crew being built in Germany I was going to purchase another from Charleston in Tenorite, selenite, graphite grey or even blue, but when the order was placed for 3rd decade of February the order came back as only having the option of their four color rainbow ...... and that was, black, silver, white or pebble grey, at least Charleston’s rainbow 🌈 somehow gained one color

Maybe something will change before to long there

I ordered another van but from Dusseldorf this time. May take longer to get but at least van will not be plagued with issues. Those Charleston produced vans seem to be hit and miss on the quality. Order a Charleston build at your own risk.
Most colors are available for German built vans. Last I heard Charleston is now down to only black and white choice.No more silver

Nope silver was an option available, and I have a build sheet that Fort Wayne MB Vans has on order for February build if anyone is interested. Pebble grey was also available but no other colors, like you I was very glad to get a German build!

After waiting over 9 months and still no van. Was fed up with the lies and BS. Got my deposit back and ordered a Dusseldorf build 11/5 for a 12/10 production. At that time only black and white was offered in Charleston. They really need to pull their heads out of their asses at that Charleston Plant. Worst way of doing business I've ever witnessed in the automotive industry. Have over 35 years experience with Lexus Toyota Honda Acura too.

You are correct I agree someone at MB needs to take note of how to deal with the rest of the buying public. The pious nature of the factory to just change placed orders or not even deliver has been a very large frustration for myself and many others on the forum. I’ve never had or could have imagined such a frustration with trying to order a new vehicle, I’ve never had any issues in ordering a new vehicle before and now the worry of my order not being fulfilled as I ordered or changed at the last moment is really a concern of mine!

I have come to see and understand why the competition can easily outsell MB in the van market. I’ve strongly considered a change often times throughout this year. But then I think heck I’ve waited this long maybe it’s just around the corner that it will come to fruition ........ so here I am with a pending order and I’m just hopeful I’m not wasting several more months to only find out MB decided to run out of paint or LED headlights or something else.......okay enough of my ranting ....... I’m just hopeful the wait will be worth the ride ��

Looking for a low roof passenger. I'm told they will be Charleston only.
