Ordered new Metris Cargo on 12/8. Have heard nothing since. I know I'm whining, but I think MB would have some mechanism for the dealer to indicate "customer special order" and so put a priority on getting the thing built and delivered. Apparently not.... Still, I hope the thing shows up before spring.

Relax. Read this.

I wish they could have indicated "Customer special order who works for your dealership"

And congrats on the purchase.

I didn't get any updates from the dealer when I ordered mine. Every so often I would e-mail the salesman for an update and sometimes got a reply and sometimes not. The last time I contacted him, he replied "it will be here Wednesday!" It took 13 weeks to the day from order to delivery.

Ordered my Metris September 21st, picked it up February 27th. The dealer apologized for the wait but said that it looked as if it was going to get worse in the future, and that he couldn't get any to keep on his lot. So just as Robb said, looks as if these are getting popular.

Don't forget to have your dealer reset the maintenance timer... or get used to ignoring the nag maintenance warnings!
The date starts from when it rolls out of the factory. Mine had all of 4K miles and the **** Service A light went on.
Upon delivery, it sat at the port in the US for over 4 months waiting for Mercedes to release them to the Dealer.
Arrive in US in Oct, released to the Dealer in March....
Geez!!

Van is built and in Germany, even has a VIN. Now dismantle, ship to Charleston, re-assemble. Anyone know how long it took to take delivery once built?

My Sprinter took about 1 month to get to the dealer from SC. Dealer contacted me in Early December and said it would get here before year end. She was spot on.
I would expect the same with the Metris.
