Spoke to my CA today also. He said he sees it arriving today as well. Also, the ship tracking websites stopped showing progress once it got close to Long Island. I'd say we're looking at mid to late next week for delivery to NY area.

It might just be me but the WW website previously showed the Freedom arriving AND departing on 11/4 from NYC, but now it has arrival on 11/4 and departure at 11/5. Again, might just be bad memory on my part.

Getting excited....

Pete-My car arrived on 10/30 (integrity) and is still at VPC with no eta for the dealer yet. Someone posted about a software campaign at the VPC. My speculation is that they got shipments on sat and sun and had a lot of cars to go through. Hopefully they will get them out to you ASAP.

Thanks, that's helpful info. Some cars stay longer than others due to any damage sustained in shipping or for other failed tests. Just to be safe, ask your CA if any of those applied to your car.

Ok the WW website is now showing the car has been "Discharged" in NY. No update on OC website or 800 # though - still say in Transit.

Same for me -- with a discharge date of 11/05. So close, yet still so far! G'ah!

So I called the 800# this morning. The status has changed back to 'at port awaiting a shipping vessel.'

I'm positive my car is in the US now, since the shipping website shows it was discharged on 11/5. Does this message mean that my car is waiting for a ride to the VPC, or perhaps (even better!) that my car is waiting for a ride to my dealer?

Your car is in the US, it's in Bayonne. Basically the message on the 800# means nothing. In my situation, the ship arrived 10/30 (after a ship arrived 10/29), the car went to VPC 11/3 and got realeased to the trucking company on 11/7, will be at my delaer today. All the while the 800 # said "at the port waiting...". So for me that was 9 days including the weekend. I think the two ships back to back created a bottleneck. I hope they have cleared that and you get your ride soon!

Okay, that makes me feel better!

BTW, congrats on getting your car today! I just know the day I get the call I'll hardly be able to do any work

So being the obsessive pain in the butt that I am, I called my CA (I really haven't called him that much ). Seems like the VPC was quick and they expect to have my car available this friday or saturday (after they install the OEM alarm). Hooray!

I was just called and was told my car as at the dealership, But since they don't have all the paperwork prepared I have to wait until monday. My car was on the freedom, and I'm in Boston - so - looks like it's happening soon!
