Just joined. Bought a white SX Limited. Wasn't even looking, took our 2016 Sorento in for service. They had a white Telly they hadn't even put on the lot yet, test drove it and that was it. P.S. From Canada

WOW you got lucky indeed, considering how many people are waiting and have been waiting so long. Welcome to the club!

Sangria EX, black interior. Test drove the Atlas and Pilot, and immediately knew I wanted a Telly. I'm not in love with the color, but EXs are hard to come by in San Antonio and I needed a second car ASAP (just moved back stateside from Europe and have been slumming it with a civic). I'm ready to mod it, but I have to convince the ole lady and shes a tough one to crack!

I went in late to work and did my daily morning cruise by the dealers lot. I also carefully noted no Auto transport vehicles in my 50 mile commute. I have also done my daily search of KIAs site with my zip code and don't see my vehicle. So no...m sadly #KIAIsKillingMe

What was the first ETA they gave you after you received your VIN?

7/7 then changed to 7/9 so it should be here soon... I just thought it would arrive early 😏
On June 28th I got an ETA of 7/14. I checked with the dealer yesterday and now the ETA shows 7/23. I don't understand why it seems that Kia's logistics is so bad. It doesn't matter the size of the package being delivered. They need to look no further than Amazon's logistics. If you load eight vehicles on a trailer that are grouped geographically, it should be pretty easy to predict with relative accuracy. And it's not like they would have to be meticulous with every vehicle they ship out but when an individualsl special orders a vehicle and is given a date, Kia should make accommodations to meet that expectation.

Agreed. In some cases I can see how a daisy chain reaction could occur if they were expecting a component on a given date that got delayed
 
Looking to cover or replace the KIA emblems on your Telluride? Look no further than right here in our own forum store - where orders are shipped immediately!

Just got my new SX in black copper/black interior. Was planning to buy a new Traverse- went and test drove the Telluride just to prove I didn’t like it. Sometimes you are wrong. View attachment 2357
Sharp. I almost got it traverse as well. The back of that vehicle is so bloated.

Beach.
I am a big guy and had a Traverse - the new one is almost 1” narrower in the seat than my 2013 was. That and sticker shock won me over.

Ordered 3/15/19 received 5/23/19. Snow White/grey interior SX Prestige with tow pkg.
Ordered in Idaho, live in Washington. Local dealer/same company not responsive.
I totally love my car! Thinking of adding roof rack and front tint.
