I ordered mine about 3 weeks ago too.
I don't know which is right or wrong, but I'm planning to keep this car for 10+ years, and my closest dealer is 8 hours away.
So I'm not worried about maintenance, reliability. I can do the small stuff after warranty, and anything major, I'll just pay.
I'm guessing/hoping this is still better than having a monthly payment for ever. From my understanding, its better to lease if you want another newer car after the lease.
