how long wait for factory order?

Hi, I ordered a 2011 Frontier Crew cab sv the first week of March. The salesman told me it may take 3 or 4 months to come in. I am getting worried now cause my trade in is a piece of crap, engine light is on, needs tires, I think it needs a head gasket, it's missing when idling, inspection is up soon. They are giving me $4,300 for this lemon. How long does it usually take for a factory order?

it just depends on what you ordered. My boss ordered a very unique dodge ram 2500 4x4 manual, and he had to wait 3 months for them to make it. I understand the urgency you feel in needing to get the new truck but they have to reconfigure the entire factory line for the different vehicle setups. It could be a while or it could be soon, there is no clear answer. It all depends on when they are making that particular model and setup as yours.

Orders go in the first week of the month and takes 8-9 weeks. If you miss the order week it may lay over to the next month. I ordered my truck on october 30 and the invoice showed it was entered in the system on 11/05 built built and put on the train on 12/22 and dealer called me on 1/18 to say it was in.
Yes, waiting for anything seems to take forever but it will not take three to four months. Since I spend way too much time reading all the posts there was a member fairly recently who physically had the truck in 6 weeks. Good luck, it's worth the wait.
Ask the dealer to verify the order was entered into Nissans system and not that they just took your deposit and that's all. Next the dealer can get a progress report at some point with a "week of" expectation for it to arrive there. The first week of May should do it.

with Japan having the issues and some world supply shortages right now it may take a bit longer then usual. A good dealer will give you a loaner car in the mean time. just call up your sales man and tell him you think its taking to long how about a loner.

Don't let the high trade-in value fool you. Dealer play tricks with the numbers, they high ball you on the trade to make you think you are getting a good deal. Dealer "generosity" is made on the other end by selling you a new truck for MSRP and high interest rate financing kick backs from the lender. Always trade and buy as two separate transactions. Better yet, do not trade, sell privately.

There should be enough parts available now to build his truck. The parts shortages are coming but not that soon. There was an article saying Nissan,Honda and one other were unaffected at this point.

yes, i know this. I didn't think 20,400 out the door and 0% for 5 yrs. was bad for a sv crew cab with my crappy ford ranger trade.

Did you call the dealer for a confirmation that the order is in Nissans system and not just on an invoice that you have from your dealer? I was given a code a couple of weeks after, it starts with two letters followed by five numbers. It is the factory order tracking number.
