OK, boys and girls, I need to see if anyone can shed some light on current lead times on an ordered car. Order placed 7-12-2012 and confirmed with the SOA help line. The dealer can't get an estimated ETA.

Can anyone shed some light on current lead times. I know that Lafayette was closed for two weeks but they are back open.

PS>>If anyone from SOA reads this and wants to help, please PM.

The car is a 2013 OB Limited with the Special Appearance pkg.

The lots were basically emptied during the two week shutdown but they are cranking out now. Did you get the BBP? I was at the plant for the Open House on Saturday and I didn't see any BBP on the line.

What does BBP stand for? Sorry but don't recognize this short cut.

Any reason why your dealer didn't just do a search and trade for the car you want? Unless of course you ordered an odd combo which is not generally built etc.

There weren't that many white w/SAP outbacks on lots a month ago, that's why I ordered mine 7/9. Still ahve no VIN or ETA date other than "September".

Don't forget that there was a 2 week shutdown at the plant. They just reopened last week.

Was the car already ordered by the dealer and you just agreed on it or was it a brand new order that you had the dealer place for you?

I'm hoping to place an order today or next week if I can find a dealer. 1 month wait time seems impossibly fast.
