wrong car delivered

Very disappointed. Friends, family and 4 folks with Model S reservations all watched with excitement as my car came off the truck today in Atlanta. First I noticed the wrong wheels, then the wrong interior, then, oh my - wrong VIN! My VIN is 3126. This car's VIN was 3162. The truck driver said 3 people are involved in checking the VIN when it's loaded on the truck. He's the last one and so also made the mistake. He said one of the TESLA guys job is to do nothing but check VINs. wow... It's Sunday and so it took a few calls, but I finally got through to someone at Tesla who is trying to find my car. I've hardly slept for days and have a Tesla party scheduled at my house this afternoon. What a bummer! If your car is VIN 3162, your car in in Atlanta.

@prash.saka - depending on the nature of the malfunction, it might not be that easy. My car was delivered in a double-decker covered trailer. It didn't use ramps to get the cars off, but rather a lift. If the lift isn't working, then it would be very hard to get the car off the truck.

End of this thread. My car was delivered today. It's amazing, as we all know. It did take 5 days for them to fix the lift. I'm not sure how much of those 5 days was time on task, but I'm finally relaxed and enjoying my MS!

@RobS -- woohoo, finally. How was the charge level after it sat (presumably unplugged) all that time on the truck?

I'm sure that gave you a lift! Keep on truckin'.

My delivery snafus were far less than yours, way to hang in there. And yes, about 30 seconds after I started driving, it was like, "What delivery snafus?"
