I ordered a Black Y 5 speed on January 28. My dealer assured me that the order was placed immediately and then each month passed with no word of a delivery date. First April was promised, then May, and finally yesterday I was informed that it is due to come with the July allocation for my dealer. :shock: I do not yet have a VIN but was told I should get that soon. I have never before waited this long for an ordered vehicle. In 1997 I waited 8 weeks for a factory ordered Chevrolet Express van and thought that was a long time. The one consolation I have regarding the long wait for the Element is that all of the production line bugs should be worked out by then. :wink: My grandmother always said that anticipation was better than the reality. I hope that isn't true in this case.
