Unless it's damaged during transport, like mine was - and then you wait and wait and wait ... it was worth it, though!

I guess it depends on the damage. Mine arrived in Baltimore, where JLR apparently has a very large port presence with its own repair shop and whatever. I had front bumper damage - to what extent, I don't know - and they held the car an extra 6 weeks, I think. It did feel like a lifetime, at that point! :)

It took 4 weeks for mine to get from the port to the dealer.

Don't know how long it was on the truck as I was never given that info.

I think part of it depends on what else is headed in your direction so that the truck is full leaving port.

Their were only 190 cars on the ship so they were not packed in their too bad. Cause the voyage before had over 400 cars so lets hope no damage..

I think the ship was indeed full. My ordered f pace is also on the Don Quixote. My friend and I ordered cars at the same time from the same dealer, my car is on the ship and hers is not. It arrived at the port a few days after mine, but still several days before the ship was scheduled to depart. Hers showed booked on the ship until it departed and then hers changed to another ship. Unfortunately she will be receiving her car about 2 weeks later than me.

Last year, when I bought my new Jaguar F-pace, my dealership handled all the title and registration process, and for my car delivery to another dealership at my local area I had arranged my own car shipping services by We Will Transport It, because the dealer said that they will take two weeks at least. That is I had hired my own auto shipping California transporters by visiting at their official site, where they had transported my car within a few days at an affordable price.

Hi all

I just got my Vin # but can't find anything on the tracking website. Dealership is telling me that the ETA has been pushed from 12/15-12/27 and i ordered it on late September. Does anybody why the tracking website shows nothing?

Thanks a lot!

It may not be on a ship yet. Until then it just comes up with nothing. Might be a different company too...Cat Lady had that happen to her new FP when she was tracking it.

When was the "Build Date" stated as on your Order Details sheet?

My sales rep gave me the wrong Vin at the first place.... now with the new Vin# i see my FP is already in port Hueneme,CA on 12/9. hopefully i will get it soon. However the dealership pushed the ETA to 12/27 from 12/15. it doesn't make too much sense to me since the car is already on US soil.... I know i live bay area(about 300 miles away) but that doesn't take 2-3 weeks to get a car delivered.

My dealership didn't gave me any of that info. i was only given a "Delivery Date" 12/15, and now they pushed it to 12/27. But my FP is already in Port Hueneme on 12/9!

What dealership? You should absolutely be able to call them and ask them what's going on. I'm constantly emailing my sale guy asking him for updates and such.

Mine is due to be at the same port on Friday; i've already reached out to the dealership asking how long it will take to get from the port to them. We also recently had a BMW build and it also came through that port and then on to Berkley. It took 5 days for that to happen, and then a few days for the PDI. And that was over thanksgiving weekend.

you also need to realize how close Port of Hueneme is to the fires. Many roads in that area have been closed and the entire county has been more focused on putting out fires than they are getting new Jaguar's on the road.

My FPace was delayed a few days in Baltimore for some type of software upgrade, according to my sales rep. It landed on 11/24 according to the shipping website and didn't get put on a truck until 12/7.
