My Dealer called the Dealer Business Center today to find out about my car 128 and also about another car 175

They told him that all the cars on transport hold will be released after Sept 6th,
they said that someone will call us after then to advise on shipping.

The delivery driver's need a vacation as much as we do I bet.
Easy for you to say... Just deliver my car then you guys can take a much deserved vacation while everyone else goes out of their minds. :) (Just kidding of course).

I'd love to hear that my first 1k was sitting on the lot waiting to be delivered. It's a heck of a lot better than "Broadcast to factory, waiting for production". AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

It's like our cars are under the press embargo :lol: September was the release of press info too, I smell a conspiracy theory, it's all being timed for release by the same guy who invented the Apprentice promo :devil:

I suspected a while back that there was a marketing strategy behind only letting a trickle of cars out now. Perhaps all the other excuses were just cover. I still bet their waiting until Sept to tie into promotions for 2006 models.

I got confirmation from my dealer, car is on transport hold after being loaded on the train last Friday at the Plant, code number 4V02 for those of you educating your dealers. Could be Hurricaine effect for shipments to the southeast at the moment.

My car was due on the 18th, unloaded from the train on the 22nd in Birmingham, called GM Headquarters Monday and got nowhere. Today, I just received an email from my dealer stating:>
Suzy,
I checked on your car today. The Dealer Business Center said that your car is on hold and that it was being shipped back to the
plant. I have no idea why it is being shipped back to the plant. I hope we get some information soon on the reason. I know that
this is very disappointing.

Talk about disappointing!!! It was only 1.15hrs away and now I am back to square one. :willy:

I cant beleive GM would release a car to transit...ship it to B'Ham...then ask for it to be shipped back to the plant....this is like a recall.... sounds too weird.....I think the dealer is fishing here as well.....sounds suspicious to me!!!!

I think the Pontiac and GM talking heads are working under the mushroom principle...keep us in the dark and feed us s**t.

The problem is.. we all talk to each other.. and get information..

C'mon Pontiac!!! tell it like it is... if there's a problem let us know... .we know something is up with you guys... why is it so hard to admit something went wrong? If I got caught at work trying to cover up a mistake, I'd be out the door.... I bet you'd do the same to your employees....

Why not try to live by the same principle you expect others to live up to?
