Ordered a PPT a week ago, the vehicle is done, Dealer expects it by end of the month. I'm holding out for the one I ordered, Polymetal Gray/ with terracotta interior. It's exceedingly difficult to be patient .. lol. This time I sprung for all the bells and whistles.
Aww best of luck Jerald! As you know I'm waiting for the same vehicle as well lol. Have you signed all the finance paperwork and whatnot yet? I have not signed any paperwork for mine yet which is concerning that I'm afraid an APR rate will skyrocket by the time mine arrives馃槦

Yes, the financial "preview". My trade is really good 2018 Camry XSE, low mileage. I'm going to plunk down a good chunk of cash besides, so my loan payment won't be too high or too long. I expect no more than 3.9 APR.

Pssst. Guys. Having had a 2.5TP since May 28th and driven it halfway across the country鈥it's worth the wait.

I've been a dyed-in-the-wool, #ichimaiiwa Mitsusbishi loyalist since 1996. The CX-50 2.5TP is so good, I've already decided my next car has to be a Miata. For whatever trifling little things stand out as being less than ideal on these vehicles, speaking as a gearhead who's spent 20+ years playing with turbocharged, AWD and 4WD Mitsubishis, on and off-road, the CX-50 is clearly a driver's machine.

It looks like some people don't like the ride quality on the factory 20s. I dunno about that. Chuck is low and wide, planted and confident鈥攁nd pulls, full-steam to redline through at least third gear. (Welcome to 80mph/130kph.) Meatier, stickier rubber on lighter wheels will likely bring improvements, but I really can't say enough good things about these vehicles. It's hard enough waiting for dinner to be delivered these days. Keep the faith. This is the way. :)

I have owned four Miatas (2005 msm, 2012 NC, 2016 ND1 and a 2020 ND2) and I will be getting my fifth Miata probably next year. They are amazing cars!
I too am interested in adding lighter wheels and better tires. I wonder how it would change the driving dynamics and how the suspension would react with stickier tires.

@Litfuse the answer is always 'Miata'. I always thought I was too big for them, but our sales rep at Horne Mazda in Tempe offered to let me drive his ND2 while my wife did paperwork on Chuck. Discovering I fit comfortably was a life changing experience. Now I want one. Badly.

Of course, I also want a Z3 and a 72 Spider Veloce, too, but still. THe CX-50 has changed me. Mazda is zoom zoom.

Guys, where and how do you check the status with the VIN?
The best I could do is use the Shopping Tool on Mazda USA site and search for vehicles in your area. I found the VIN# of my car. I was able to see "in-transit" to the dealer, then I saw an ETA, but now it says "In-Transit" again. I have found nothing accurate. I will contact my dealer in a day or two. The ETA of mine was last Thursday, so I guess that's not happening.

Ohh ok, looking at your screenshot I thought there is a site where you can track based on the VIN. BTW, i too ordered my PT from Wayne Mazda, the guy said In Transit could mean anywhere from being manufactured to actually being in transit. Not sure how true it is.

If you have a VIN #, it should be completed, I think. This one is mine so don't get any ideas .. lol. I left a deposit on 7/5. Who is your sales rep? Mine is Luis.

Lol, mine is Turbo Premium. We were very specific with the color (Machine Gray and Terracotta) but they said its an Aug car. Good thing, there is a VIN. Our sales rep was Chris.
