2015 4x4 2500 170 Crew
Ah, no, I was VERY aware of this forum before I ordered. That's why I had a specific list of options ordered on the van rather than the default packages.OK, now I'm a little skeered. I ordered a custom 4x4 as well. Not from Wilson but a local deaer here in SoCal. I was told it would arrive by "late November" but when I pinged the salesman, got told it was delayed, but now in So Carolina and should be here early Jan '17. Not a real big deal as I'm laid up right now and can't drive no less start working on it.
But after reading this thread in it's entirety (hey, I can't move so nothing else to do) I'm beginning to conjure up some nasty scenarios. I guess I can olny hope the dealer I'm working with is at least straight with me on that.
I did however find out AFTER the purchase that some of the info I got from the dealer wasn't true, like passenger seat fitments do not come on a cargo, and that options can be individually ordered instead of getting a package for one item. Like DF, I was unaware of this forum so I went at it kind of blind. And that's not a deal breaker anyway.
There have been reports nationwide of delays recently. Rumored to be about recertification of emissions controls for 2017 models. It's more likely that your dealer is just incompetent rather than purposefully evil. Lots of people working in dealerships apparently don't know what options exist on sprinters, don't know how to order said options, and can't use their ordering system to check status.But if I get a bait switch like DF did, I'll be really pissed. Color is absolutely key as are some of the option packages. Keeping my fingers crossed and have resolved to pester the dealer at least weekly.
Anyway, Nevada Blue, keep me in your seat loop, still interested and D Fumes, sending you a PM re B-ham mtb scene. hope to hear from you guys and all who may have helpfull suggestions.
