Dealer doesn't have the VIN?

I called my dealer and my FJ is supposed to be in port on the 10th. So I asked him for the VIN number to get the insurance information and he said they cannot provide the VIN#.

This does not sound right, I would think a dealer who has the unit allocated and expected delivery a week from now would have the VIN number.

Is this possible? Or could it be that they are jerking me around. Is there some way I could get the VIN number or method I can suggest to him to get the VIN number?

Thanks in advance!

I am a sales person for Toyota and once the vehicle is built you get the vin# if the vehicle is just in A=allocated status and not built yet you will not have a vin#.

I am also waiting delivery on the 10th. My sales guy called me last Friday and gave me the VIN number.

You should ask and tell them that I already have mine.

So would they have it once the vehicle is in port? It's due in on the 10th so I would think that upon port arrival that they would have the vin numbers correct?

I appreciate the information! They already screwed me over by giving me the wrong price by $1000!!! so I did the financing and now have to cover the difference so I hope they don't jerk the date around on me either.

I didn't get my VIN till mine arrived at Port. If they will give you the Temp VIN and check code and you PM it to RoverGGM he may be able to help.

See the thread titled "Is my dealer full of crap" in the general section.

I was having this same problem and it turns out that whether or not your dealer has a VIN at this point in the process depends on which region your FJ is coming from.
