True enough Dascrow, a couple hundred at least based on what I've read here on the number of Texas customer pre-orders. But the whole state to state bureaucracy thing to me is even sadder. I'm at a complete loss to understand why Texas, Indiana and others can't get their act together on this. If nothing else, it's costing each state hundred's of thousands of lost sales tax and titling fees and to what end? It's nonsensicle. At least all the good folks on the Forum here are doing what they can to bring around change.You would think with no Slingshots shipping to Texas there would be a nice supply of them ready to go. Not to mention the states that are buried in snow.
totally agree, I live in Vermont, I want my SS, but can't do anything till Spring, ship them to the South..... have fun with MY slingshot guys! LOLWhy are they delivering to states with snow on the ground already? When there states in the south and west where they could drive them year around? Sorry to you guys up north, but that's my opinion.
I agree. Of course they know. It sucks because I'm certain I'll receive absolutely no notice until it comes in. It's then going to take me several days to get things arranged to pick it up. By then 100 people will have screwed with it. Polaris communication is the worst I've ever experienced.again, I find it hard to belive that Polaris does not know how many SSs they have, how many are moved out of the factory for loading, which ones are on which truck headed for which dealer? They know!
Someone at Polaris and at the logistics office knows this and there is no excuse why they can not tell the dealer that they have x number of vehicles and are in shipment and about when they will arrive..
These are not 50 cent bags of chips they are $20,000.00 items. They know when they were produced and which ones (by VIN number) are going to which trucker and which ones are being delivered to which dealers... come... on!
The least they should be doing is notifying the dealers which vehicles are coming and approximately when to expect them. The dealer could let the customers know so they can be making arrangements for the payment, financing and pick-up.
That is typical good customer service.
Maybe we should all show up at the dealers on the 26 th and pick up our vehicles or take back our deposits ... all the remaining buyers ....all at once!
I guess I could wait until spring for one!
I have no doubt that they'll do their best. They seem like great people and they've been very kind the few times I've called them. I'm just thinking, it's not an easy thing to hide when the whole shop is open to the public. They can't police it 24/7 and oftentimes, people just do what they want. I sure hope you're right Saul.Slingking, your dealer won't let anyone screw with it. They really take care of their customers. I'm pretty sure they will not even put it out for people to have access to it.
