Interesting, for some reason Volvo cannot seem to get my T8 through customs clearance. It has been at the port in MD since 1 Jan. There were other T8s on the same boat, that were released within 2-3 days of arrival. I have spoken with both my sales rep and the company at the port, both seem unable to resolve the issue.....frustrated!!

Strange - any chance you had ordered some options that are installed at port? FWIW - the EPA and California certifications have been published - so it is probably not related to that ...

I only looked at the first couple of ones listed, but they seem to not have a lot of packages / options added, and they are priced considerably higher than the Volvo configurator for their configuration. Sounds like some dealers are banking on the scarcity to make some added profit.

Is this some kind of order baiting strategy or real? I see some cars with photos:

But wait, they have crystal shifters and T8 badges too:

Those lists are bogus.

I cannot check East Coast or Southern VINs but I checked at least 10 West Coast cars and they have all been sold and delivered in our systems. Cars.com has not updated their database, which does not surprise me.

No port installed options. The lady at the port thinks it is a glitch in the customs database or website????? I will call again on tuesday, doesn't seem like this is an issue that should take weeks to fix.

cars.com and similar sites have this dealer software feature of placing vehicles already sold or in transit for sale/available. Super annoying
