Once your car has reached 3400, does this mean that the car has been built?
I know that 3400 is "broadcast" and 3800 means that it has been built. Im just trying to understand the GM system lingo. Once it reaches 3400, can it go back to 3100 or anything? My car went from 3000 to 3100 to 3400 in a single day. Believe it or not!

Maybe it's Sly time

Don't know about that, but CadillacCricket told me I just went 3400 and I'm Sly. Ordered in June. I'm told 1st of 4 in 1st allo. CC told me to check back in a couple of weeks to see if I had a build date/VIN. CC is the coolest!

I was at 3400 for 2 weeks before going to code 3800. I was told that 3400 means that it is being built..I think that is true in a sense, but I really think it means that you are on your Target Production Week. I was also told by someone else that it could be built the week you go to 3400 or the week after if things slide a little. So, expect your car to be built within 2 weeks of going to 3400. I hope that ramble made sense. :willy:

My particular car went 3400 on 8/29 and was built 9/8. Not to bad of a turn around in my opinion. What 3400 means if I remember correctly is that your car is in the pool of cars to be built. Which means the plant can pick your car from the pool and make it. Once it's made it's 3800 Produced, meaning it's done beign made but hasn't moved on in the process yet.

Mine was coded 3000 since 8/16. I don't understand how all this works,but my order was placed on April 19. and from what I am reading from alot of the forum people they are a month or more after my order. How can they have a higher event code when there order was well after mine? By the way mine is still at 3000, pure Cricket yesterday.

Hey Guys, another one of my naive questions...

Okay, I was told that mycar is at 3400-broadcast in the order system. At code 3000, it says car available to be sequenced. My car has been sequenced, so does that mean that my car has moved on to the broadcast stage? Slip says the system says it is at broadcast (3400) but somebody else is saying that my car has been sequenced. Im rambling here... Umm... so once it has been sequenced, does it automatically move on to the broadcast event or does it sit there until it gets chosen to move onto the next stage? Phew! ...and it has been scheduled for production (3100) with a build week of last week.

Mine was at 3300 two weeks ago and last week went back to 3000. So nothing is in stone until you see 3800. I have heard from others who have gone backwards also. So don't hold your breath or you will really get depressed. It took me a couple days to recover!

I went 3400 on 9/14. Anyone got any ideas of the time frame it is taking to go to 3800 from 3400?
For me it was 11 days. 8/29 to 9/8. It's 9/20 now and as of last Friday it had not been released to ship yet.

Correct. I didn't know it was 3800 till 6 days after it was built though. It was made on 9/8 but I didn't find out till 9/13. I really wasn't expecting it to get built that soon after going to 3400.

Look for 3800.....

You don't count in the Solstice World until you see code "3800". That's when the clock starts ticking. Did I mention at 3800 your heart beat probably increases by 1000%. :lol:

I visited my dealer today and found out that my Sol also went to 3400 on 9/14 ! If what I am reading here is correct, then it may be built in the next 1 -2 weeks? :)

Getting closer ! I may get in time to drive it once before parking it and covering it for the winter. lol :glol:

Good luck everyone - I hear the wait is worth it! :yesnod:

I guess since you went 3400 on 9/13 and 3800 today and I went 3400 on 9/14 mine should be built tomorrow! Just kidding, but it would make me very happy!
