I am new to this site. I recently put down a $500 deposit on an Element. I ordered a 5 speed 2WD EX version in shoeline mist. The dealer had originally told me it would take 4-6 weeks to receive my Element. Today I called to see if he had ordered my vehicle. He said that he had and that Honda had accepted? the order. Having said that he told me I could expect to receive my Element in 3 months! Could someone explain to me why it would take 3 months to get a car? Are there any available Elements in the color and version I want in other dealerships? If so, can my dealer acquire the vehicle in some sort of exchange?
