Some members are reporting their dealers are inputting orders into GM system (without pricing which seems kind of strange).

To our dealer members, what's up...is ordering open now? Is this some sort of grab a place in the GM order line ?

WHEN ordering opens, and I don't think it has yet, orders will be placed probably without prices. That's the way it was in 1996 when I ordered my 97 GTP, it was the first few days of ordering ability and there were no prices yet.

I think, and I hope to be proven wrong, that it's a case of dealers actually writing up a firm order from customer with deposit taken.

Ordering without prices sounds like the official pre-order system might be in place now that some dealers have mentioned. I've talked to two and they said they couldn't take pre-orders till the GM system they used permited it. Once the prices and full options are available then you can place a real order.

Orders are not being accepted by GM at this time. I've tried to submit them but it comes back with an error message that says:

SPECS returned order as invalid
N/A AT THIS TIME
Unable to add preliminary order
N/A AT THIS TIME

Also, I'd expect to be able to order without knowing the prices. On a new vehicle launch, we usually order before they release prices. I've had vehicles on the lot before and STILL no prices had been released, so I couldn't sell them.

There has not been a concensus yet for the Solstice. After the first concensus a dealer will have a better idea what their first allocation will be like. No official word, I think it will be next month.

I'm betting consensus will be next month too. I hope I get one..or ten! It is already sold!!

Edit: Just talked to my Area Rep. He says consensus won't be until May, and production won't start until June. I asked for his source and he said the Pontiac Marketing Manager

Ouch. Now if that's true that really sucks.

Problem is if production starts in June, I'm betting we wont get it till July at the earliest then. :(

Welcome to the forum perrypontiac. And thanks for setting us straight on the order window. It is still closed as some suspected.

In a way, I kinda hope it takes a long time. The longer they wait, the more time I have to scratch up some downpayment. My chances of getting any new car this year is questionable. But you know how it is... I just gotta be the first kid on my block to get a Solstice! :willy:

Thanks for the info! That has been the information we have seen the most, is a start to production in May with dealer deliveries in June. That is my hope!
