Well, maybe it was an early joke. Dealer called today. Guy who sold me the buggy is no longer with them. Sales manager said it may be the end of April now. 馃槨
Ouch, that is a bummer man, sorry. I ended up calling Polaris today to see what they would say. I got transferred to a "specialist" who informed me that it is anticipated in May. When I asked "like the beginning of May or the end of May?" all he could answer was "sorry we don't have an exact date but we will in April as it gets closer."

His reason, as many of us already knew, was supply chain issues. Really unfortunate they can't give people a better idea of when they might get their machine. Dealers should be telling people 3+ months for certain models.

Thanks PriestLaker. The sales manager said they have some sort of bar graph to check progress on the timeline. He said mine is at the 1/3rd mark. The impression I got was that is not the status on the actual build, but the overall progress in the entire process of ordering, building, shipping and whatever else. So 1/3rd doesn't really mean anything to me as I have nothing to compare it to. It may have been 1/3rd right after Polaris got the order from the dealer, I don't know. Wonder if anybody else has experience with this. Hopefully he will update me periodically as the status changes. It would be nice to be able to determine a rough timeline based on everybody's individual experience.

I keep getting different stories from different people. Was told my premium would arrive in 2-3 months from order date in late Jan., then told May-June, then April, then back to May-June. Also told would arrive sooner since it was purchased with money down, but when I spoke to customer service at Polaris they stated that the type of order/payment makes no difference. Seems like no one has any real idea what is going on! No one ever mentioned a bar graph.

I called the dealer today, just to see if there was any progress to report. They鈥檙e now saying around April 15th. That鈥檚 a little better than what I was last told, but not as good as the original estimate. He sounded slightly annoyed to be answering my question. Can鈥檛 say I blame him. He is probably getting hounded daily. Before I let him go, I asked what that progress bar was showing. Told me it was at the half way point, and was noted as 鈥渋n transit鈥. Again, I don鈥檛 know what that means. In transit down the assembly line, in transit to the dealer or something else?. I鈥檒l keep you all posted as I get additional info.

I just spoke with my dealer and he informed me that my 2/2/21 order delivery date for my military tan XP4 has been pushed back to June and about 14 other orders. I am now in the process of what it will cost me in restocking fees to return all of the accessories I ordered from them and potentially look for something else I can actually use instead of wasting 3 more months.

It went from 4-8 weeks, then to April, then to May and now to June.

There's two KRX 1000s sitting on my dealers floor right now. I'm really contemplating just picking that up and adding another quad to the mix.

Ask the dealer if they have a vin number that should clue your in on what in transit means or call Polaris directly and ask them.

New member here, and just placed a deposit on a XP4 Graphite with the stage 4 audio (minus the ride command) and was originally told 4-8 weeks on the phone prior to coming in. After doing the numbers game and placing my initials on the paper the salesman comes back and stated 鈥渢he trucking sheet shows latest July 22鈥..........what happened to being told 4-8 weeks there guy? I also agree the dealers need to be up front on the wait time. I understand the current times and manufacturers issues, but telling the customer one thing just to get them in the door and immediately changing it to something not in the customers favor, is ridiculous. Anyway, in the meantime our 800 Ranger Crew on portals will have to make do until then.

It is finally here. Almost 4 months after placing the order, it's here. I got a call from the dealership this past Tuesday that it was ready to be picked up. We went and got it Wednesday. We were so excited, I didn't even bother to unhook the trailer. Just unloaded the buggy and took a short ride. Now it's time to start installing everything I have accumulated along the way.

Oops, I just saw this reply. However, when I spoke to them a while back, the dealer said he would call me as soon as they got the VIN.

If you go by my timeline, maybe late May for yours. My dealer said mine was the longest wait yet for a General. There were a lot more machines in stock versus the last time I was there. Maybe Polaris is starting to catch up a little. Let鈥檚 hope.
