We ordered our EX (Canada) on June 7. The dealership warned us we won't know when the vehicle might come in until we get a VIN assigned, which indicates the order was accepted by KIA in Korea. Any idea what kind of lead time we're looking at? Dealership confirmed this morning we still don't have a VIN.

I posted this elsewhere but it looks like a workers strike is coming to Hyundai motor group soon. You may want to reconsider and try to find one on a lot. Order times may get extended. Last I heard it was on the order of 16-20 weeks which could put you into next year.

Curious if you've taken delivery yet? We put our order in for a Ghost Grey/Ceramic Silver SX on June 19th. As of yesterday no VIN assigned yet dealer says the order is still listed as "at sea". I think I tracked the likely ship to the Grand Race which off-loaded in Vancouver July 19/20 so it could still be stuck in customs.

I read elsewhere that CA is no longer taking orders for 2022. US still is though.

We have not taken delivery yet. No update on VIN yet either. I'll post back here when I do!

I was told by my sales person that Kia Canada is no longer accepting orders for SX and EX+ trims for this model cycle (he said until the 2023s come out but I think he actually meant the "true" 2022 models as opposed to these early "2021" 2022s). They still have no timeline or new information about a potential delivery date so I imagine we still have quite a wait on our hands. Likely depends how many people in front of us have speced their vehicles the same as our orders as I believe country wide it is first come first served as they come in, not a true "built to order" situation.

I'm thinking now should I wait one more year to get additional features like hybrid or AWD!

You could be waiting quite awhile, has Kia confirmed hybrid and awd will be coming to the carnival?

I would just go buy one of the SX's in stock at the moment, and cancel your order, there is two here in Ottawa that I know of still on the lot. One is black and the other is thunder grey.

Hmm. My wife is picky on Storm Blue SX! :censored:

I ordered an EX in late August, got a VIN a few weeks back but still no idea when I will see mine, the Dealer showed me the waiting list, 3 ahead with VIN and delivery dates, and 2 of us with VIN no delivery dates, then a slew of other folks behind us with no update.

I ordered an SX last July here in Edmonton (Go Kia South), called today and they still have no VIN #.

Original order date: July 2021
Original vehicle delivery date: October 2021

Revised delivery date #1: Jan/Feb 2022
Revised delivery date #2: March/April 2022
Revised delivery date #3: April/May 2022

Not very confident that the SX will come anytime soon...
