i wonder if we could start a french topic in this forum... me too i talk french...

well for your delay, i don't know where you buyed it, it surely depends of the dealer if he is or not big enough to get the models early... in quebec, albi seems the biggest, that's where i got mine, a i4 automatic and blue...

the other thing i see is the color, the salesman at albi told me that white 6 is not a model they have seen yet in their inventory, they have to order it... it could take mucho time, so be patient!

Mine is delayed on account of the supply not being able to keep up with demand on the 17" alloys. Don't know if this is related.

I ordered a silver Mazda6 GT-I4 on March 13. The dealer told me at the time that I will get the car in 4 weeks. However, the dealer now says that I will probably get the car in the first week of May. Apparently, the 6-7 weeks long delivery time is due to a shortage of 17" alloy wheels.

As of yesterday my car is back on track with a build date of April 21st. Delivery in the last week of May or first week of June. Apparently the wheels are not a problem now?

:p

Just got mine Silver 6 GT-I4 with GFX Package on Apr 17. I ordered it on Feb 19 and was told that it would be delivered at the end of March. Thank god! It's just THREE weeks delay.


According to the salesman, the reasons what the 6 dealys are because that there is shortage of 17" Alloy and Mazda Canada has some hard time to deal with the government to promote 17" Alloy in Canada. Mazda Canada was asked whenever 10 Mazda 6 are sold, three must be in 16" steel and the rest can be 17" Alloy. I know the second reason sounds weird, but it's really what I was told when I pick up my 6. The salesman also mentioned that this might not affected to those 6s that had already been ordered. :(

However, call your dealers to see if this is true or it is just another weird excuse for the dealy.

Wish you all to have your 6 ASAP!

:)

Well I ordered mine on the 3rd of March: a blue 4 cylinder with GS sport group. I was supposed to get it by mid April. Yesturday, my sales director told me it was delayed to June 25th. Apparently they have a provisionning problem with the alloy wheels. Apparently they are back order. It really sucks. There's nothing much I can do. We are about ten in that same situation at my dealer.

I don't know where you are located, but if I recall there was at least one of them at Bank Mazda or was it Carling Motors Co. Lt?. Anyhow both dealers are in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. They may still have it.

The GS seems to be more available. And in Vancouver there would no doubt be stock on this. heh. Big city.

Take mine for example. It will be the only one of this trim and color [body kit, leather, acc, etc] on the island of Newfoundland and one of three on the surrounding mainland [NS, NB, PEI].
