Signed the contract 8 days ago to buy a 2.5i-S Forester.
The vehicle was an October 2019 build awaiting shipment to Aust from Japan.
The salesman said he would give me the VIN and shipping dates on the Monday.
A week later and both Subaru and the dealership tell me they don't have the VIN and have no idea when the vehicle will be shipped.
I am interested if you have bought a Subaru that wasn't in stock, had been built and awaiting a ship to be allocated in Japan.
How long before you got the VIN and shipping info?
Nobody can even tell me if it's normal for a VIN not to have been allocated.
Seems all hit and miss.

I had about 6 weeks from placing the order to delivery in mid September 2019
it was about 3 or 4 weeks before I got the VIN.
Delivery was on the arranged date. Also a 2.5i-S
i think it was 4 weeks from ordering until arrival in Australia
Dealer seemed to know exactly where it was about 5 days after ordering.

Going on 12 days since I ordered it and the dealer is still saying he knows nothing.

Given it was built nearly two months ago, you assume they would know the VIN
