It may never to 'bad', but the only direction the delivery date can go is 'later'. Every foul-up, bleep and blunder at the factory, during shipment or at the dealer will cause the delivery date to slip. There have been 'horror stories' posted here. Consider them Worst Case Scenarios.
When we bought our first house, I chose to ride the excitements and disappointments for all they were worth. Having the 3rd offer accepted was just the beginning. Getting the contract and then the mortgage! Then the inevitable crap just before (and even at) the closing...
Now, if it ain't on the lot, I don't buy it. But that's me.
