I’m wondering how many people have ordered their Carnival in July 2021 or later and have already received theirs. We ordered ours July 10, 2021 and it still hasn’t been allocated. I talked to another dealership here in our same state (Utah) and they mention that their customers who ordered theirs in July have had their car for a couple months now.

I did a custom order with Capital Kia in Ohio
Sorry to be a stickler for details, but could you elaborate a bit more? We've seen that it is really easy to confuse a truly custom factory orders with being placed on a dealer's waiting list. Did you have any custom features or accessories requested and delivered with your order? Or did you just specify the standard trim and color combination you preferred?

I contacted the dealer and place the order for the specifics I wanted a tow hitch the covers interior and exterior. Also the trim I wanted Sx prestige. I put my $1000 deposit down and they contacted me a week later and said it went through. Then they called when it was time to pick it up. I hope that helped.

Wow, a week for factory VIN assignment is unheard of in this market. You're definitely the exception to the rule these days. Congrats!
No not week for vin assignment. They just said my order was placed. They total process took about 4 months you don’t get your vin until a week or two before delivery. Sorry if I mislead.

I ordered my Kia Carnival on September 2, 2021 and received the car at the end of October, 2021. It was a specific order SX Prestige, White, Grey interior, very specific interior and exterior options. $1,000 refundable deposit if I decided against the car for any reason. I was told when I placed the order that it would be upwards of six months before I would receive the car. Within two weeks of placing the order I was advised that the car would be in by the end of September. When I inquired as to how that was possible, I was told that when the order was placed, there was one coming off assembly that was an exact match. I was skeptical and the car actually took another 3 to 4 weeks to arrive but arrive it did four months ahead of schedule and an exact match to what I ordered.
