Even though I don't trust dealers generally about information, the one I do trust says they expect deliveries to arrive around April 20th. My guess is that they want to have inventory ready for when the embargo ends and sales begin.

I've talked to 2 dealerships. One will take my $$$ non refundable and the other promised (grain of salt time) to keep me updated & let me know when I might see it. The second dealership is gigantic...I'm tempted to put my $$ down since I will buy a Honda of some sort...might do so if I don't hear from dealer 1. I don't want to wait another 6 months for what it seems will be a hot car. One indicated they'd get an initial inventory and then 5-6 per month after that. Does that seem normal? I just don't know.

Oh yeah - and they said there'll be no room for negotiation on the price. If it comes in under 25 I might be ok with that. Pricing will be key for sure.

Don't know what normal is,but 5 or 6 doesn't sound right. Sounds like they are trying to rush you into buying by trying to scare you about availability

That is like saying there is no chance the sky will be blue today. Sure, if you're in Seattle in winter, maybe the odds are slim. But, unless they are a 'one price' dealer and EVERY car they sell is at the same price, then I'd run, not walk, to the next dealer. Price is always negotiable.

And the 5-6 month deal is just smoke and mirrors. The reason we're all waiting now is Honda is building an inventory to (hopefully) meet initial demand. Once they get going they'll keep a reasonable supply on hand at each dealer. At least we won't have to wait for parts to arrive and pass through the strike on the west coast docks.

Nonrefundable deposit and no negotiation? I'd look for different dealers...

I agree. I hate when dealers pressure and jerk you around.
