Hmm... can this happen?

Dealer swaps for a NBP before it is made.
Dealer says somebody else took it, computer error... somebody else ordered before us for a NBP... Therefore, they get priority?

Can that happen? Any dealers wanna respond? Also, anyone here from the Cleveland area? Let me know!

There are dealers who will bump you if they can get a better price than that quoted to you. Get a vin number for your X.

A similar thing happened to me.

I originally ordered from a dealer in So. Oregon. Dealer told me a Black/Touring/Non-Nav was being shipped and would arrive on about May 25th. I put down a $1000 deposit.

He called three days later and said it was a mistake, the one he had coming in was really a TW. TW was not one of my choices for colors.

I had talked to other dealers before placing an order and was able to find in Portland a black/touring/non-navi that would arrive the last of May. I cancelled the order with the first dealer and ordered from the Portland dealer.

Then I found this site while looking for accessories. After reading posts here I decided that the navigation system was right for me, cancel again, and reordered with the navi. Received it on My 31.

I have ordered 3 MDX's, wonder if that is the record?

I have always wondered if the first dealer was telling the truth. He may have had a better offer over MSRP, or someone wanted many of the overpriced accessories, and sold the black MDX to another customer.

I was worried when my X didn't show up when specified. Dealer called and said 5 were ordered and 4 came in. Mine was supposedly "on a different truck". I figured the dealer at the first stop talked the driver into dropping it their. Luckily I was wrong and it arrived a couple of days later.

Another dirt bag dealer, I would call Acura Customer Service and complain!

After reading acuramdx.org for a while I learned to ask for a VIN. It took me a while to get it but eventually I did.

Two weeks before delivery the sales guy didn't have it and I kept wondering if it was coming. Eventually it all worked out.

Bottom line, demand a VIN #

Hi Black–Bling–MDX:

___You could always ask Jamie Stockman? He has tracked hundreds of X’s for other members from the dealer order to the VIN and if the dealer is pulling a fast one, his information will put the question to bed once and for all.

___BaldEagle,

Yep :12:

These antics do not surprise me in the least. Order from another dealer. This one doesn't deserve your hard earned money. I am sure another dealer will be more than happy to accomodate you and make your purchase unbelievably pleasant:).....HAHA did I say that.... buyer beware....I HATE DEALERS!!!!
