There has been concern about the "delivered by October 24, 2005" from the EOP infomation. As I have posted it is just a date to provide closure and meet legal requirements. Orders are listed as shipping June/July. Found the following info to give some back ground. We received this about filling out Purchase & Sales Agreements.

"The Attorney General does not require you to fill in the delivery date. Yet, under the Attorney General's regulations, if a delivery date is not filled in, then the vehicle must be delivered within eighht weeks of the contract date unless the delay is beyond the control of you and the manufacturer. (e.g. a labor strike at the manufacturer or a shipping strike would be beyond both your control and the manufacturer's.) If not delivered to the purchaser by then, the purchaser can cancel the contract and receive a full refund.

If a delivery date is stated, however, you are obligated to deliver the motor vehicle to the purchaser by that date unless the delay is beyond the control of you nad the manufacturer. If not delivered to the purchaser by then, the purchaser can cancel the contract and recieve a full refund.

We would advise that you make a specific promise of delivery date only when you know that the vehicle cannot be delivered within eight weeks from the date of the contract. Otherwise, it is in your best interest to leave the box for "Approx Delivery Date" blank.

So, for example, if the motor vehicle is a special ordered vehicle that will take longer than eight weeks to deliver, be sure to fill in the delivery date to protect yourself from cancellation.

If the customer insists on a delivery date as a condition of the transaction, make the delivery date liberal enough so that you can comply. And understand that if you fail to meet the delivery date the customer is free to cancel the transaction."


So in that light, it should be understandable where and why the October 24, 2005 (6 months from the end of the EOP, although we all know the program ends April 15, 2005 at 2:06PM :) ), is in the rules.
