It’s not unusual for there to be quite some time-lag between when a vehicle is built and when it’s actually sold to a new-car buyer. I think the longest that we’ve ever seen here at Aussie Motoring was a Daewoo Lanos that was built well over 12 months before it was sold.
A long lag-time between build and sale is evidently not a problem Holden is facing with the Holden Cruze. One Brisbane buyer has reported that the Holden Cruze he picked up last week was only built … in Korea … last month.
