I just got an email from my Subaru Dealer that their loaner Solterra won't be delivered until "late September." They also told me consumer orders will be delivered until "Sept/Oct" 2022.
Yea, that's because of a production stop and a recall on the wheel attachment method used for the BZ4x and Solterra. Please see the Recalls section of the site for more information.

Thanks for sharing! Updates from my dealership have been sparse, so it is nice to know what else people are hearing. I refresh Reddit, this forum, and Facebook every day for any info I can get.

I’m wondering if it’s sept delivery even for those of us who’s cars are sitting at the rail yard 20 minutes down the road from the dealer. I was slated to have received the car by now or this week before “the wheels fell off.” Maybe just swapping the lug bolts out will be an easy quick fix if it’s that simple. I guess time will tell, I’m surprised Toyota/Subaru are not giving updates or more technical information.

I think even if it’s a pretty straightforward fix, Toyota might have to recertify to the regulators that the car is save to drive after the recall fix - whatever that turns out to be.
It can’t just be a “it’s all good - take our word for it” kind of situation.

You certainly also don’t want to have a recall for the work done on a recall, so whatever the solution is, it better be a permanent fix. Reminding customers to tighten their lug nuts/bolts every 500 miles is probably not good for Toyota’s image.

Was at the dealer today and spoke with my sales rep. The dealer demo and his limited were pushed back a month to September but mine mine is still "scheduled" for November.

But you've got an extra half-hour at the charging station (every 200 miles or so) in which to re-torque all of the lug bolts. Might as well put the time to good use.:geek:
Maybe there should be a hub bolt torque monitoring display like the tire pressure monitoring display, so you know when to tighten the bolts. 🤔
