The McLaren MP4-12C was one of the most highly anticipated supercars in recent memory, but a number of problems have owners fed up and McLaren delaying shipments.

According to Auto Week, the company has been forced to limit production as they attempt to fix several quality issues. Despite a couple of high profile crashes, Tony Joseph - director of McLaren North America - said "there are no safety concerns for the delay" and "we've had some quality-related issues in a few cars we wanted to address before we continue to deliver customer cars."

More specifically, Joseph mentioned they have received complaints about the door-opening mechanisms, condensation in the headlights and a draining battery. However, Jalopnik has reported the issues could be far greater and include problems with the immobilizer, brake lines and navigation system.

Regardless, estimates suggest the shipments could be delayed by two or three weeks so remember patience is a virtue.
