There are several individuals claiming to be Escort Dealers that have been telling their customers that have pre-ordered the 9500Ci from their company that they are unable to release them as Escort has issued a recall.
This rumor is completely false!
To date Escort has only released three "final production" units to reviewers, one of which I have.
Escort is planning to release the 9500Ci to the general market later this week.
A comment that was made inside Escort when I called them today was "how can we recall something that we haven't sold yet?"
This false rumor supports my position in "Buyer Beware" when dealing with unauthorized dealers and/or websites that pre-sell a product with unrealistic commitment dates.
I am now in the process of testing the 9500Ci and will post my review hopefully this weekend both here and on my blog.
