Looks like my cars are going to be late.

I'm supposed to take possession of mine on Saturday the 26th of January. The assembly plant listed on my window sticker is Ota, Gunma, Japan, which is not the plant that is mentioned in the shutdown. I'm hoping that means mine is not affected.

EDIT: I just did some more research and all the plants are in the Ota, Gunma province, so I guess that includes the Yajima factory, which is specifically mentioned in one article posted above. Crossing my fingers that my manufacture date is outside the window of suspected units.

5-6 weeks on the water - I think you're fine. Keep us posted.

How can you tell the status of an order, i.e. has the car been built, has it been shipped, etc?
I placed my order in early December, finally received a VIN on Jan 11, was told delivery would be Feb 18.
Would you think the factory shutdown would affect my order?
Thanks

I don’t think cars spend anywhere 5-6 weeks on the water nowadays. At least, mine didn’t.

In my case, I ordered my Touring the last week of August 2018 and it was at my dealer October 5th.
