Your order sheet says July?
It actually doesn't say anything, I have a "Sold Order" from my dealer that really just contains the VON, the car info (model, package, etc), my info, the dealer's info.

This is from a webpage according to the URL at the bottom: subarunet.com/soldorder/wizard/saveSoldOrder.

The dealer told me in an email that it is expected around July. I'll email them tonight about a more pinpointed delivery date. Once I know more i'll update my original post.

The top of the sold order should have an approximate date. Mine says "estimated vehicle availability is the last week of May 2014."

I'm buying the Forester in Alabama. Dealers in Alabama are small and don't make many sales because this is Chevy and Ford country. I wonder if the dealerships that have much lower sales numbers have a longer order time?

Small town Dealers

My town is the same way. Subaru is small dealership. They only have about 4 Outbacks and 2-3 Foresters on hand regularly. I wouldn't think that would hold up the process. My dealer still told me 8-12 weeks.

Awesome! I got the Touring trim as well. Adding the 18 inch wheels really enticed me to go for the Touring as well as many other features. What color did you go for?

Yeah, the dealers have been trying to tell me that the '14s are the "same thing" and the 18" wheels are one of the main reasons I am choosing a '15, love the new rims.

I went with white outside, silver inside. I really wanted black/black but I wanted eyesight/navi more (and my fiance even more so), so I settled with white! Ill get used to it, I'm sure. What color did you choose? The red looks really great in person, I wasnt expecting to like it as much as I did, definitely rivaled the white.

I ordered mine as soon as possible which was March 15th hoping for a April delivery dealer said May, thought I would be patient but hoping it arrives a little earlier. The one thing I have notice on the larger dealers sites is that all the 2015 vehicles in transit currently are 2.5l no 2.0s are indicated.

XT Premium

Deposit is paid and the order is in on our first Subaru. I think I am a lot more excited than my wife, who is the one who will actually be driving it. I have a few friends with Foresters and they love 'em. So, we're diving head first into the Subaru club.

Trim: XT Premium (Satin White)

Purchase Date: March 12, 2014

Estimated arrival time: "sometime in May"

Arrival Date: TBD
