Never trust a dealer. They will tell you anything to make a sale.Not what I was told. The exact words to me were "literally this vehicle will be shipped to us with your name on it". I gave them the $1K so its on the dealership to get the goods for me no matter how they do it.
They will be hoping they get a HPD BE to sell to you, or they will check other dealer inventories and do a swap to get your truck. They cannot guarantee that Honda will build and ship them what they want, they can only put in requests.
