I don't read it that way, instead that the middle column of delay times is for all models, and the right column lists specific items which may take longer to resolve. Guess it is not perfectly clear?
For instance, the Buick Regal has "None" in the right column, yet still lists 8-10 weeks from order-to-delivery in the middle column. Thus the right column is not the reason for the delay?
The text at the top of the table says:
"The estimated order-to-delivery times (aka “lead times”) shown below are sourced from the latest manufacturer communications. While every effort is made to provide accurate and timely information, lead times are estimated and may not apply at the time an order is placed.
"Estimated lead times do not factor in vehicle carrier delays, inclement weather delays, recalls, quality holds, parts shortages, automotive union worker strikes or other supply chain delays.
"Estimated lead times may or may not reflect plant downtime - it depends where the down-weeks fall on the scheduling calendar.
"Due to varying assembly plant assignments for certain model lines and/or ordered options, the lead times, plant downtime and production delays listed below may not apply to all model configurations.
"RED indicates new or revised information."
In any event, it seems clear from all the various posts here that delays are real, and appear to be growing IMO.
How many posters have said, "My Transit arrived earlier than I expected?"
