Well just got a call from dealer he said my car was "Released to the plant" not sure what that means but considering I only ordered in august that sounds good to me.

Just got a copy of my invoice from my salesman. Can't believe it--- Still in shock. Dealer did a print out of their orders yesterday and I and the first 1000 did not show up at all on the print out and today they got the invoice---

LOVnSOL Great happy driving

I think the Canadian statuses are different and not as delailed I get the idea they do not have the "GM workbench that everyone talks about. When Lightning Rods car got to deallers I think we had seen it and he had sat in it before dealer new it was there LAFFFFFFFF

Probably means released to production control, which I think is a code 3000. I'm glad your order is moving forward, but keep your patience. I've been at code 3000 for a month already with no change. I think orders get moved into code 3000 in batches. I don't know if it is once a week, once a month or what. So you could move to the next stage in one week, or it could take a month or two.

Either way, it is exciting to see progress being made, so congratulations!

I can relate. Ordered my car April 30. Yeah, dah should have ordered it BEFORE April 15th. But I am told by my dealer the car was preferenced as of Sept 12. I see from Small Dealer's post on constraints that there have been NO allocations in the past two weeks. Obviously production is ramping up more slowly than they thought, otherwise one would think there would be a steady flow of cars being picked up.

I have been plotting production since August and we have NOT seen a steady increase. More of a see-saw, hence they probably pulled a bunch on the sept 9 weekend and haven't needed to pull any more for two weeks.

Sorry to hear you still haven't seen any progress. As you can see some of our lads who ordered back at the end of March got their cars earlier this week. Actually I am surprised we are hearing from them at all. :lol:
