Length of Delivery?

Hello, I am just trying to get some information on a vehicle I recently purchased at an Audi dealership in Toronto.

I made the purchase 2 days ago, car was supposed to be ready Friday and today they call to tell me they need until Monday. It is a certified preowned Audi A4 2013. They are doing a 300 point inspection and we agreed they will buff and clean up the scratches on the car. Am I being pushed back for them to accommodate a higher paying customer? I understand they are closed Sundays but is it normal to take so long? 9 days is quite a bit of time...

Sounds like they're buying time or they're too lazy/busy. Have a friend go to the dealership and ask for a used A4.

Thank you for the responses. I will wait it out and see what happens although it's hard to be patient :)

they pushed it back from a Friday to a Monday, it's really not a big deal.

if they have to prep a couple RS7s and R8s or what not for delivery, your used A4 getting the shaft is not entirely unlikely.

Seems pretty normal to me. It probably doesn't take 9 days but it all comes down to priority. Some dealerships have just one employee doing the delivery because they don't want the sales spending time on these types of things. Same with the mechanics, most dealers probably prefer them to work on something that makes more money first (i.e. repair job).

Bad idea... never let a dealer "wash" your car unless you are looking for free swirl marks...

So they need extra time to make sure it's in great condition for the new owner. I'd say that's a good thing.
Don't worry about it, just enjoy your new car!

So if they are closed on Sundays, how is it that you purchased two days ago since the 5th was a Tuesday making two days prior a Sunday? How is Monday now 9 days?

I waited a week at most for delivery.
