    I know there are some of us in NorCal wondering when our Prius's are going to show up at the dealer. So far -- no word from my dealer yet -- maybe just like Freeway repair things move slower up there...

    Thought I'd start this thread to see if anyone has heard anything?

    My car was on the Eminent Ace, so I'm in the second batch of cars. I got an e-mail from Putnam Toyota last night telling me that my car was in Benicia at the port and wanted to setup a time early next week to pickup the car.

    Has anyone who is getting their car delivered to a Sacramento area dealer received notification that their car has been built or shipped yet? My order was confirmed within 10 minutes, yet it still hasn't been built yet, so I'm just wondering if the delay is related to the dealer location.

    Congratulations to those who are going to pick up their car this week! I'm looking forward to reading your first impressions.

    My car was in the first batch on the NC2. Andrey at Putnam told me yesterday that if the car showed up in the next day or so, I could pick it up later this week. Otherwise, we'd have to schedule for next week. I'm hoping for Thurs night because I'm booked on Friday.

    Magnusen just emailed me and said that my prius manufacture date is today. This waiting is killing me.

    If I had to guess, the port is taking longer to process the cars. Also, it's a third-party company that does the receiving and processing of the cars, so that could factor into things. We're at the mercy of the port right now.

    I'm sure sorry you Nor Cal folks haven't seen your cars yet. That's a bummer. :cool: Oh well. Soon huh?

    Does anyone know if they work Sundays offloading cars and doing whatever it is they do once off the ships at port? I'd imagine if there is money to be made they work Sundays but ya' never know...

    No further word yet from Piercey near San Jose. They called Monday and said "probably Thursday".

    Clay, I was confirmed withing a couple of minutes too. It looks like all the Sac area cars got the later build dates in CA. I just checked and my Blizzard Advanced was built 2/26, so still not shipped out yet.

    i doubt anyone is willing to pay the double-time or whatever it is. And anyways, unlike us, to these guys it's just another car. :)

    I was suprised to hear from Putnam that they didn't know when cars would arrive, but apparantly that's how it really works. Maybe there are things that they can see in the system to give them clues as to what is happening and can make some educated guesses. But it seems that they show up when they show up. Ah well, the sun 'll come out tomorrow...even if the forecast is for rain.

    Can you clarify what you mean by on it's way? On a boat, on a truck, in a box with green eggs and ham? :) Just wondering if you are saying the dealer confirmed the delivery to them or not. thx.

    tomkessler may be referring to the Toyota email? I just received my last email from Toyota telling me my car is on its way to the dealer.
