I have a manual Proto Z that has been at the port of Los Angeles for at least 6 weeks. My dealer has given me no reason for the delay. Today my salesperson told me confidently that most manual Z's are on a sales hold.

Q60
Hasn't shipping recently become expensive due to diesel shortages? Maybe Nissan is too broke to pay the higher costs of transport?

Difficult to know with Nissan, they have terrible customer relations.....

This is probably a shot in the dark because I'm sure if anything could be said in a public manner it would have been by now, but @Dan_Passe anything you can share?
It would be best for Nissan to just be upfront about the issue, instead of being silent. Update your customers who have been waiting patiently for vehicles . I have owned 10 Nissan Z's in my years of driving, plus 6 other Nissan vehicles and I am tempted to leave this brand due to a lack of communication from this company.

It's been a nightmare! Communication is all we need from Nissan, not just vague promises. It's OK to have problems on initial launch and cool that major issues did come up and hopefully resolved, but Nissan owes Z customers updates. We know what the Z is capable of, i.e. via tuners. Terrible customer relations!

I would love the to know the legality of Nissan taking deposits and sitting on them for 8 months without a single update. the market conditions at the time of deposit compared to time of delivery are significantly different and in canada they are already advertising a price increase before a single car has been delivered. they are the only manufacture i have seen that has taken a deposit on a vehicle and released the number's but not locked their customers in. If they locked people in at time of price release I would of been ok waiting due to issue's but at this point it looks like nissan prioritized maximum profit and has choosen to deliver only to the USA well holding Canadian deposits and it blows my mind that this is legal. maybe its just my frustration getting the best of me but i really wish i never found out about this piece of garbage. current nissan canada finance rates are well over 8% ... not sure how anybody swallows that

Do not know Canadian law.... but Nissan does not have your deposit. Your dealer does. And they can hold it for a decade if they want.
Ask for it back if you have had enough? It is refundable.

Deposit just holds your place in line for when a dealer has said model. Does not mean they have to bring you inside the inner circle.
