I believe the 800 number updates only once every 24 hours, and I think it's in the middle of the night sometime.

Still at the port of exit But the Hoegh Chiba is still there, and it's 5pm in Germany. Guess I won't know until tomorrow morning if I made it on.

The Hoegh Chiba has set sail! Tomorrow morning's 800 number update will be informative.

What the... the Hoegh Chiba just docked in Emden. Do these ships make multiple stops along the way?

Haha, yeah, you thought it was an express?? There's not too many places to stop in the North Atlantic, though

http://www.portofhueneme.org/home.php

According to that, the HC is due into Port Hueneme on the 26th (assuming it's been updated since the HC's scheduled changed - not sure on that). Did you ever find out if you got on? I will be pretty disappointed if I wake up tomorrow and the 1800 number tells me I'm still at that goddamn port of exit.

Check it again in the morning. I think it updates at a time when every working man in the US is guaranteed asleep.

The dealer just called me... Seems my sales guy no longer is working there. The new guy called to introduce himself and to tell me my car is in transit on the Atlantic. ETA of 2/15. That places it on the Manon which set sail on the 2nd. As of yesterday, the 800 number did not reflect this. It is correct as of now. So, it took at least two days for the 800 number to update. The web still says it is at port waiting...

Hope this helps!

Man, sorry to hear it. I called and spoke w/ someone at my center and they confirmed mine was on the Fedora. I thought it was the HC, but I guess I made it earlier. It'll hit CA 2/22 and then customs and getting it to WA. I should have it end of February or Early March by the latest.

From what you and dogears said, maybe I am on the HC, and it just hasn't updated yet .. and to think you were trying to talk the HC into stranding us at the port and it's not even your boat!

Yeah, because the 800# didn't say my car was at port until like the 27th and the ship supposedly sailed on the 27th so that's why HC was the logical choice. Obviously the 800# is a few days delayed so hopefully you made the HC. Hahaha, I know man - see what greed does to people? My bad - but in all seriousness - I do hope you're on the HC!

I hope I'm in the same boat (no pun intended).

IN TRANSIT!@$# It's gotta be on the HC - seems like the 2-day delay you guys mentioned was exactly right.

I'm on the Chiba, too! CA estimates 2nd week of March for a delivery at the dealership (7-10 days from arrival at VPC to customer delivery).

Nice! The Chiba appears to have just set sail from the UK, next stop is Panama, which it's scheduled to arrive at on the 16th:

Lucky for us, no wasting any time at the east-coast ports.

My car still haven't made it onto a ship yet!
it's been there since the 29th, waiting for a shipping vessel.
Why is it taking so long???
I want my car, noW!!!
It's been 60 days since I locked in my interest rate. I need to re lock in again. I dont know how ppl who wait more than 3 month gets to keep their low interest rates.....
