    Got an Email from DS yesterday here in Toronto regarding my scheduled deliver for my Model S for tomorrow at 2pm. He said the Delivery truck coming from the factory with a truck load of Model S's is stuck in Nebraska with malfunctions! He said they are hoping it will arrive in Toronto late friday night and is hoping for delivery on Sunday morning. That Sucks! I was hoping for delivery tomorrow to have the weekend to play with it....

    Oh well...

    Better late than never. The carrier could have gotten in an accident.

    Good point. At the end of the day it is a car and not something vital like medical treatment...

    Umm..are first Model-S never made it to us because the car carrier turned over on icy roads in Nebraska. That was in Feb/March. Luckily it was slightly warmer when the second one was shipped a few weeks later:smile:

    Even the best laid plans of TM sometimes get handed off to third-parties.
    And accidents and mechanical issues sometimes do happen.

    The delivery of my MS got flummoxed somewhere in New Mexico, and in West Texas.
    My Local SC rep, and DS in Cali tracked it as best they could, nothing they could do about the truck and driver's eventual route and day/time of arrival.

    The DS called and said the truck just arrived this afternoon in Toronto at the service center. He said they have to make sure that the cars don't have any scratches or other problems before confirming they can try a delivery to me tomorrow or Sunday. Hoping the cars are O.K.

    Just got the inspector to approve the Electrical wiring for the HPWC that the electrician installed for $1850!

    Sounds like Nebraska is a dangerous place for Tesla car carriers and needs to be avoided for future deliveries.... :tongue:

    Well, I just drove my Model S to Nebraska last week and didn't have any problems :)
