Order Delays

Just wanted to check in to see if anyone else is experiencing delays. I was supposed to be picking up my rigg this week (offline was last week) but i'm told their not shipping any out right now- everything is being backed up and i need to wait another four weeks. Kind of frustrated...I'm being told the delay is related to the 2016 Ford Chassis that is experiencing transmission noise that their trying to diagnose.

Model 3170DS- no custom paint.

Thats true, it's actually a vibration issue related to the new 6-speed transmission. There is another thread under the Forester sub-forum that discusses this. Supposedly they have just found a solution with Ford for the problem.
Good luck

It's all E-series and we are no longer building an E-350 chassis.
