Re: How should the ordering process go?
Here describes the events in my order:
3/17 - ordered vehicle - Dealer indicated 5 to 8 weeks till I would receive.
3/18 - vehicle order submitted to factory [Tuesday EOB - pm]
3/25 - dealer communicated build date week of 3/31
3/29 [Sat] - I communicated to the dealer that I was concerned that the AAM strike could impact the building of the car.
3/31 am - Dealer made several calls on my behalf and communicated to me it will be built and the strike would not impact the build.
4/2 am - Dealer phoned me indicating it was built on 4/1.
4/3 pm - vehicle delivered.
You should know - I live in South Eastern Michigan[NOT Detroit]. The Lake Orion plant is within 10 miles of my dealer. The dealer is a high volume dealership that serves many GM execs [I'm not a GM employee]. While I don't think they "pulled strings" for me, I do think they know how to "get things done".
Hope this helps.
