Exclamation Delivery delay C-Class 2008

I Ordered my Fully loaded C300RWD back in September 2007 at Mercedes-Benz Downtown Toronto (Dundas) and I am still waiting for the car to arrive and we are now the 28 March 2008 - Over 6 long long months .

They promise an initial delivery date in early January 2008 but then it was February, then finally they mentionned to me that the car was manufactured and that it will be here in March.. Now we are almost APRIL and still no car!!!!

After following up with them about a week and a half ago they mentionned to me that the car was finally in Halifax. Checked again with them today,since the car was still not in, to only find out that the car was MAYBE in Halifax but they didn't know if it is still on the boat or at customs. Apparently their current system cannot give them an expected date or exact location?

Some Sales Manager dude from MB downtown called me to today apologize, saying that the boat propeller was broken and that the Boat had to go back to the UK and so their arrival date on the system was not correct (was expected on the 19th March). He is saying that it will be here in April, BUT HE WON'T COMMIT.

Anyone had the same problem with MB Toronto Downtown?? Apparently the waiting list is the crazy insane, with lots of fustrated customer. Anyone wants to share their experience... ok Peace

Ordered ours in Nov 07 MB Mississauga. Promised for end of April now. Note: I started a similar thread in the W204 forum.

Not that I don't simpathize really, but I wish I had this problem. I need to go thru the brand new experience sometime myself.

I think that's just BS. Ask for the build date. (and have it signed with the salesman's blood ...ha, ha, ha)

Eh....look at it this way...if you never go through it, you will have never had to go through the pain of knowing that your brand new posession just lost 40% of it's value because you took it home

No but all jokes aside....it is something everyone should enjoy once. Not to sound corny...but it's neat to have a car that smells like a German Luxury Automobile Assembly factory, not some middle aged house wife's kids puke LOL

And, the original topic sucks...but your only in Toronto, fly down to US....nice drive home, because at least here in California in Sept your worst problem was what color C300 to drive home. I am envious about the FULLY LOADED part. Neither of mine have BT modules....still trying to convince the company I "need" it though and let them pick up the $1300 tab for each car

Of course, I don't know all the details - but aren't there a bunch of C300's on the dealer's lots? When I went to MB Mississauga a couple of weeks ago they had to have a half-dozen there. Now the C350 was an entirely different story. That being said, MB-Cda has to be delighted to have this sort of 'problem', that is, too many orders and not enough cars.

Get the PO number or VIN off the dealer and track it yourself on the Wallenius-Wilhelmsen website. That will tell you for sure if it's in Halifax or not.

Thank you everyone for posting to this discussion. I have checked the Wallenius-Wilhelmsen website as suggested by Mike Tee (with thanks!) with the VIN and the car is in Halifax. But still we are 31 March 2008 today and the Order was sent in September 07! That would make 6.5 months! 3 seasons? That would make Vivaldi's Four Seasons shady!


I got a call from the Sales Manager again today, (yeah the same one that called me before) informing me that the car was somewhere on Truck between Halifax and Toronto, but they don't have GPS system on Truck to keep track where it was. He is saying that it should be here anytime soon. Hope this time they don't have some sort of "Propeller" on truck.

I'm planning to file a complaint to Mercedes Benz Canada... for broken Promises.. I don't want to get in politics but was it not the campaign against Dalton McGuinty last year? Yet it seems we have some broken promises problem in Ontario... Even with Mercedes.
