Another week has passed by and nothing new on my account. I called my SA again and now he's saying that Fremont factory is backed up for Model 3/Y's and all deliveries are delayed. The new estimated delivery date range for Bay Area is now end of Dec - mid January.
This doesn't make sense at all to me, as there's plenty of Bay Area folks here who have taken delivery recently, or are about to delivery soon. Something doesn't add up. I mentioned that I shouldn't I be given priority since I ordered earlier, in September and I see people online who ordered just a week or two ago having VINs/taking delivery? Unfortunately he said it doesn't work that way. Even if the online profile is fully completed, its "up to the Tesla algorithm".
I believe I saw in the Reddit Model Y community someone who had a similar case early in Q4. An individual ordered their MY in Q3 and was promised a delivery before the end of Q3 but when it came to be Q4 there was still no VIN or vehicle. Eventually after weeks the SA just said the only thing they could do was to re-order the vehicle since the vehicle was "lost" administratively. I have a bad feeling this is the case... You may want to talk to your SA on this one and consider this yourself. If the SA's advice collectively mean anything in terms of "when is the best time to order a Model Y if you live in CA", theoretically/ideally if you want to re-order, now is the best time to do so since CA deliveries are the priority. Your wait time in fact may be less. Something to consider.
Do you have an estimated delivery date on your profile? Mine shows 12/10-12/25. My SA informed me that it would be within that timeframe and should expect VIN soon. Idk what to believe.
I share my time between SF and some other parts of the Bay Area and occasionally I give different Tesla centers a visit. Even when I give the the same RN number, each SA advice is different. I think the best we can do is hope that as we hear people getting VINs from order dates that match ours, it means that hopefully our orders are also almost here as well
