Even then you're trusting what you're being told or shown. You could hang up or walk out and with the "flick of the button" your priority can be changed and changed again and changed again...

I know thats what sucks you have to trust your dealer I have no reason to change the priority on my customers I put priority in the same sequence as they came to me to order. Except for mine I was first obviously as I ordered before we were open that day.

Honestly, my only worry is that dealers with larger allocations (aka mine) will bump the pre-orders down in priority and grab some lot cars first now that they can as of today. I'm not worried about losing my spot among the other pre-orders...

Sold orders take priority over lot cars unless the dealer places a fake name and address and orders it as a sold order and changes it's priority.

wrong. Dealers can order all their lot cars ahead of their preorders if they feel like it. Or they can just never place the preorders. They have control over all of their orders.

Good advice. Right at the top of the dealer printout it reads "OrderWORKBENCH". Then "Preliminary Order Detail - Order # ...." My order "number" (identifier?) is four letters then two numbers.

Don't freak out in the meantime, you have until Feb 15th, not that I would wait. Nobody has any official Chevy "position" yet- even me who ordered day one, October 13th. Cars will be delivered in the order the dealer tells GM to do it. GM will tell them next Friday (maybe different in CA ?) how many of what style they can order for March delivery. I would expect that not many dealers will even be able to order any for March. Then it's solely up to the dealer to decide which of the orders he has in hand to match to what GM is allowing him to order. You could be first in line and he could order the 12th guy's car, identical to yours, before yours. You have to trust your dealer to do the right thing. Sucks, but that's the way it is.

So i took your advice and went to go talk to my dealer about this welcome kit and about the tracking number and what he told me is that the orders are sitting right here in his order book and when GM schedules a date for the car to be produced they will hear something . I told him about the forum and how we are getting direct answers from the people way up higher then some sales manager are telling me to order through the workbench, not autobook. He insisted that his remark was correct and i should basically go home and sit by the phone and wait for his call. He didnt want to give me the time of day and all that fun stuff...... so either he is right or i just picked the wrong Chevy dealership

I ordered in October and haven't seen a letter or kit yet? Just get me some sort of a timeline so I can sell my old car and plan a road trip in the new one.

What does the letter or kit have to do with selling your old car? As long as you know your spot in line at the dealer and his total allocation you should be able to guess with 60 days when you would be getting your car IMO.

Bumble bee ss ... your deal sould have a 6 digit number for you ... if he does not I would not worry to much about it as they sales and the ordering guy's might not talk to each other LOL .. does happen ... If you made the deposit you should get the car .. As far as I know my dealer did not want me to have my number so I had to go up the food chain .. got though .. keep on 'em

IMO, he's a douchebag. You have every right to have that 6 digit order confirmation #. If I was in your situation, I'd email Chevy customer service. When they give you the response saying that the dealer should give you that number (which they undoubtedly will), take that to him and ask him if Chevy is wrong too...
