    Anyone have access to the internal Toyota tracking? My dealer wont show me or screenshot the page. Long beach may be similar to Portland with delays, maybe a manpower issue? Also, LA county is reinstating Covid precautions, as of now just masks indoors, but if they start shutting things down again...................

    The RORO carrier with my vehicle was at Long Beach for less than 24 hrs. That was 7/6 (which was exactly on schedule). Dealer says my vehicle is still on rail and will move to truck on the 25th for delivery in Denver the following week.

    No idea how much time elapsed between leaving the ship and being put on rail.

    Dang, I tracked my (assumed) RORO and it wasn't in the port for very long either. I wonder what the port time is then, right now.

    Not that I can think of. Like SaltyFrank I didn’t actually have official info identifying the ship. I just used the internet and looked for carriers that left Japan on the scheduled date with a destination of Long Beach. Fortunately there was only one ship that was even close and it turned out to be the right one.

    todays update

    "Still no ETA showing up in the computer so we called the director at the port where your 4Runner is and gave them the vin# and requested a HOT PRIORITY flag on yours and I think that is going to get the ball rolling."

    I have never heard of a hot priority and not really sure if thats a thing, but they've been holding a lot of money of mine for a while now and I think they are worried I may come get it and take it elsewhere. I'm not going to, but I am also not going to tell them that. If it helps, cool, if not, at least they are keeping me updated.

    Yeah that kinda sucks you haven’t heard anything yet but like u said, at least you're being kept in the loop. I haven’t heard a thing myself & mine was scheduled to hit the port the 13th. I guess mine isn’t such a ‘hot priority’ lol. Last time I sent an email asking for an update I pretty much got a “hurry up and wait” type response.

    What I don’t get is how hallkb’s came to port on the 13’th & he received a call yesterday that it’d arrive at the dealership tomorrow. I’m also from MA so I assume mine was on the same ship (scheduled to arrive @ the port on the same day anyway) but I still haven’t heard a word. Oh well, at least some of us are getting our trucks.

    4runner (with vin) showed up on the dealer sight this morning, so I imagine they got a delivery date from the port sometime yesterday. Hoping for delivery this weekend.

    When I got the call about the delivery window, our 4runner showed up on the dealer sight about a week later. We were a month or so out from the call, so once it hit the website that would put us at 3 weeks for delivery after that. I'd call your dealer and see if they got any kind of window for delivery on yours.

    I got impatient and texted the sales person. no updates "since the last time I checked, but will look again this morning. Lots of vehicles have been delayed in transit and in a holding pattern."
    Im not sure what delayed in transit means...... lol transit would be a 1 hour ride away from the port?

    Yeah that’s crazy. What did the car carrier driver stop for some chick fil a? Lol “delayed in transit” & only an hour away?... shitty. Hopefully it shows up & they just call you & tell u it’s there. That happened to a friend of mine who was waiting forever. They never let him know the potential delivery to dealership dates or anything & then one day out the blue they just called to say it’s here.

    Well, I just heard back, mine apparently has not even been processed yet. Just sitting at the port. However the port works, there seems to be some delays right now.

    I’m from Massachusetts & am getting mine thru prime toyota rt 2 in Lancaster MA. Them & Toyota of Nashua NH were the only dealerships around that were even willing to put build orders in for me. All the others I spoke with either said no or fed me the “toyota isn’t taking orders right now” lie to try & get me to buy what they had on their lot.

    I am most likely going to be heading over to the Long Beach facility next week, I'll report back on any 4 runners I see being processed.

    Just received word that mine should be at the dealership by 8/10. So for reference, I ordered it 5/31. It’s build date was 6/9. It left Japan 6/13 & was scheduled to arrive at the port on 7/13.

    Damn. I'm glad you finally got an update but sorry that means so more waiting. If that is any indication how things are going over there I may be in for a wait.


    Nice, what are you doing over there?

    Also got an update. They are saying 7/31-8/5 is the delivery range to the dealer. So not too much longer.

    Deal made 6/23, build date 6/26(allocation swap) , at the port 7/12 and delayed, delivery first week of august. Im ok with this.

    I do automotive service equipment and they are moving/expanding the vehicle prep operation to a new larger building. The move is still a little ways off.
