Manazillo is a city in Mexico, proabably a port city. Your vehicle might be there.<p>Hope this helps, cause I have no idea. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Steve:<p>Try posting in the OSD forum. Bob & Yannis are the experts and can probably help you out.

Manzanillo is a coastal city in Mexico, south of Puerto Vallarta. I do not understand why his car would be "processed" there. I understand that the ship carrying his car could stop there to unload other cars but not his. Unless they do some initial paper processing there but I have never heard that before.<p>Yannis

Have you seen my old post <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=31504" TARGET="_blank">Tracking Volvo Shipment and Delivery</A>? (It has fallen into archived status, maybe time to reawaken it)<p>This is a new wrinkle - is your car destined for you in the US? Previously, all Texas-bound cars debarked in Georgia and shipped by train. Please ask your dealer, if it comes through Mexico I wonder how they deal with importation. Must be some kind of sealed carriage point.<p>Tom.

I found out that it refers to Panama, it is some sort of hub. The car will ship out of there to Georgia. Do you remember how long the car stays in Customs?

These delays are very rare.<p>Tom.
