we ordered an LE Premium AWD back in mid March. The salesman said two months wait, have your new vehicle in June. Next time we spoke it was late July, then late August. Last week he said don't worry, your new car will be on our lot in mid September. WTH? He checks every day, and had a few orders filled last week, but says it's sparatic, cars show up without notice. Not a good time to buy a new car

A Cross XLE suddenly became available 04/18 so I did the credit application and the deposit 04/21. This vehicle was built and in transit according to the dealership, but I have yet to receive an ETA. Apparently, the Toyota tracking system has been down since last week. The salesman said it could be a week etc. from the inital day I talk to him 04/18 but I suspect it will be a lot longer.

Regarding the current perception about not knowing when a vehicle will get to the dealer….this has always been the case. I recall many times when I was contacting many dealers about a new model coming to dealers, they could only get a ballpark time. This was before any of the supply problems we see today.

My dealer called yesterday to say my XLE FWD is delayed - again; delivery pushed back to early June from mid-May. My order went in on December 23, 2021, 138 days ago. Build date was scheduled for May 5th, but who knows....:unsure:

I think Toyota is focusing on AWD more than FWD. I tried to get a fwd first but no luck. If I were in your shoes, I would be emailing every dealer around you to see if they have any xle fwd that are not spoken for. If your dealer doesn't have a VIN yet for the car you ordered, they are pretty much waiting for allocation probably.

I have a solid CC allocation & VIN for two FWD XLEs, one red and one white. Told them I'd take either, as they're both exactly the same setup. I give up second guessing the process; I'm happy just waiting.🥱💤

Kamran, I put down my deposit back on March 5, 2022 (I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba). The dealer said 3 - 4 months for delivery of our vehicle (XLE AWD Blue Crush Metallic). I'm hoping sometime in July, so we can enjoy it for half the summer before winter arrives again!
we put a deposit on March 24, told two months, then three, then four now they have no idea. Dealership was supposed to receive an update last week but got nothing. they are as frustrated as I am, well almost. we ordered AWD LE Premium

Toronto, ON: A deposit was made end of November. Nearing end of May now. Still nothing. This might be the worst service standard I've seen from Toyota in 30 years - Two Camry, Two Corollas, One Lexus later.

My salesperson actually suggested cancelling my order and ordering a Rav4 le awd. I don't like the Rav styling and chose to wait it out. The dealership extended my lease on my 2017 Rav until the new car arrives.
