Hi. What date did you receive your vin? I ordered on July 26th, and have not received my vin. Thx.

I never ask for the VIN actually....I don't know where you are, but in my region, as will all my previous orders, the car is usually here in about 6-8 weeks...the salesperson I deal with gives me the actual arrival date about the 6 week point. He enters the order in the system while we are doing the paperwork and it gets accepted before I leave or by the end of the day. Since I am in NY the cars come through SDC in NJ. New England, NY, and NJ are different than most other parts of the country.

Nice! Got my wilderness in silver in July. If you're into detailing, I'd recommend Adam's UV Graphine ceramic spray as a semi-permanent top coat. It looks really good on the plastic trim too. Enjoy the new ride :cool:

I jut received an amazing offer from my local dealer. They want to pay me more than my 14 is worth and get me into something new for the same money. I would love to get in a Wilderness, but I'm always hesitant of first editions of anything. Thats just my issue- you have a really nice car there! Congrats, and good luck!

It's just an XT with a mild lift basically. Nothing to really worry about.

The transmission and engine in the wilderness have been in use since 2019 in the Ascent, with the TR690 transmission being introduced in 2010 and has gone through a decade of refinement.

I agree with @EgregiousBlunder that there's nothing substantially new in the Wilderness that would be cause for concern. If the dealership offering you a great trade-in isn't going to turn around and price gouge you for the Wilderness this might be a good opportunity to upgrade.

Thanks for that.... I'll look for it. I am always up for new products since my other vehicles are black too!

Thanks! And right now the guaranteed trade prices are high and going up. My 2020 Forester went up $350 while I was waiting for the Wilderness to arrive. Go for the Wilderness, the only new pieces are suspension related. The ride and handling are incredible as is the vault like solitude. The interior is terrific. You won't be disappointed.

Mine hasn't been that shiny since the day I got it and detailed it lol.
Look for Chemical Guys After Wash. I used this on my black Forester, and my RAM is black and through the cold months I use the car wash since I can't wash by hand. No one will know it took you ten minutes and it will look like you just picked it up again.
