This is annoying. Sorry...
Epacy, my car took about 2 weeks too. They said delay of quality control check. Could be anything...mine was suppose to be finished on the 7th but instead it really finished and was sent out on the 15th...

What im concerned about is what caused the delay....

That is unsettling.
Not sure if mine was delayed since it did end on the estimated build date. I hope not.

Looks like the automated system was wrong all along. Now the automated system says my car is status 182 AG Load No. -- Released to Carrier waiting for transport to the port of exit.

Don't forget that the OC website is about a week or so behind real time. Calling the 800 number get pretty much real time information.

I didn't forget. When I say automated, I am speaking of the digital voice that speaks to you on the hotline, not the OC.

Car is at Bremerhaven waiting for a ship. Couple ships scheduled to leave on the 29th. Hopefully, I can hitch a ride on those.

I am told this is the furthest the hotline can track the order. Glad I won't have to repeat myself to that smug digital woman anymore.

Nice E! It's finally on its way. The automated lady on the 800 line is also off by about 2 days. Moreover, the WW website tracking by VIN is also off by 2 days. So, unless you hear from your CA, you'll find out that your car is on a ship 2 days after it gets on one. I waited for only 4 days on the docks, so I hope the same happens to you. You are Poseidon after all! Your domain from here on.

I found where you can track on NYK lines but the K-line tracking system doesn't seem to accept VIN numbers.
How have any others tracked their cargos outside of the WW site?

Car is in the water!
"K" Line shipping on vessel Emden with estimated delivery at Charleston on April 12.
I am told the ship left yesterday, a day behind schedule. Seems to be a slower K-line ship, but at least it gets there a couple days before the W&W ship.
Now on to the tracking!

Presumably at VPC or on a truck - I called CA earlier today to find out and she said the "internet was down" at the dealership all day so she couldn't check anything for me - I was like uhhhh sure it is. Hopefully tomorrow I will have an answer - Assuming it's out of there by today I should get it in next few days.
Sorry for
carry on
