Chatted to my dealer in Brisbane. He said he was expecting July but that he doubting that will happen now 😏. He is also under the impression he would know as soon as the car was on a boat.

I have a updated contract for manual proto, still no VIN. Dealer says I am allocated a proto along with another customer who has an auto.

Just saw a Facebook post that someone had gotten an updated contract and that their dealer estimated October deliver
Yeah, but that guys info is a bit shifty…I mean his dealer sent him the link to build a car for prices, something we had weeks ago.
He also says, possibly November, hopefully September so it’s clear dealers still know nothing, but I’m guessing considering this one didn’t even know about the online builder they know less than some others.

This is what I mean….know one truly knows anything

A couple of dealers have said they are already in the boat…weather they are or not is another thing

Dealers are still telling you what you want to hear to string you along so you dont go and buy a car elsewhere
Really? Would never have thought that….of course we realise. At the same time I 100% know for a fact they are also being fed bull 💩, because I was literally there where Nissan Aus Corps told my dealer cars were expected in July

My dealer has stopped responding to my emails so that's my update.
I think we have the same Sydney dealer, if you ordered a Proto from them and haven't been told then you have missed out as they told me last week they only got 2.

Yep, though when I ordered I asked them if I could put down for a yellow coupe as my second preference which they said was fine so I'm trying to ask them about that. They could at least inform me I've missed out on the proto (which I've been assuming was the case for months).

Oh yeah i am not blaming dealers, they have to string you along to make the sale but its Nissan that is obviously not communicating well enough with them. I think most people are understanding the tough times we are in with supply chain etc. If the communication was better, i think people would be more understanding

That’s what I have said all along…I understand there are extenuating circumstances…I’m just asking to be kept in the loop.
We put our money down, we signed contracts, we have done the right thing by them…time for them to do the right thing by us.
They have all our details after all

Spoke to someone on the phone. Turns out the old sales guy has left which explains the non-responses. You'd think they'd put an out of office on or something but anyway.

New sales guy was way more communicative. Turns out I was 3 in the queue at their dealership for protos. They were allocated 2 protos but 1 pulled out. But since Nissan was controlling the allocation they took that 1 back and gave it to someone else. So that sucks for me. I only just missed out in the end.

He seemed to think there shouldn't be any problems getting a yellow coupe as they haven't been that popular in preorders. But he was honest and said he still wasn't certain how allocations for the Coupe would work - Nissan hasn't told them.

He's now sending me an updated contract for the Yellow coupe.

Same thing happened to me in WA …sales guy left, no one told me.
The manager took over his load which may or may not be good
I too ordered a yellow coupe.
