I have been somewhat patiently waiting for dealer return response to my emails/calls. It was verbally stated that I was #8 of 15. The first seven having been picked up by gm. Now, I am just told that I am number 14 of 20, with 11 having been picked up. I think I feel screwed. I am not speaking highly of this gm ordering setup. It stinks. And take note gm. People do spread the word on the street.

Sounds like your dealer is screwing you not GM>

If the dealership misinforms you about your status and possibly evens drops you down their priority list (since you offer no infomation about possible constraint issues), how does that reflect on GM's choice of allocation systems and procedures?

Sounds like you have a normal allocation order with your dealer, and that they are the one that bumped you down in the order. It is not GM's fault that your dealer is bumping you down behind other customers.

Hang in there, it does sound as if your dealer has arbitrarily bumped you to a higher position on his list. GM really has no bearing or control over what decision a dealer will make as far as which car he'll choose to enter first.

When I placed my order, I was told I was #12 on the list. Then I was moved to #4. My car doesn't have a target production date and I figure I'll see it around December. Got to take a chill pill. Some dealers are obviously not the caliber of Small Dealer or Cadillacricket.

I concur solli4me

I emailed the gm at the dealer I am working with. I advised of the # slippage and he gave me a third set of numbers. Now I am supposedly 11 of 24. October the target for gm pickup. Deliv jan march. This is not a euphoric process. It is largely negative. Sad.
