1LE Dealer Orders Not Opening On Feb 11th

I just got an email from my dealer today that orders are not starting tomorrow February 11th. He said possibly closer to the end of the month. is there anyone here that can confirm whether that's true or not?

Probably because this crazy weather that we're having, worst winter since 1979

Looks like the extreme cold temps are going to prevent them from putting the rubber to the ground. Dont fret, mine has been sitting inside for the last six weeks with fifty miles on the odometer and is awaiting the spring thaw which will be April the way we are going.

I walked into my dealership on November 16th, 6 full days before the cut-off and tried to order. Due to their incompetence, my car didn't get it ordered and I've been waiting oh so f'ing patiently for 3 months. GM better open up that order-book tomorrow.

I thought it was not proper planning to start production back up when they first announced it for February 11, that's still in the middle of winter, especially in Ottawa. Stuff doesn't start to melt there at least until the middle of March. I wouldn't be surprised if they suspend it for another month.

My dealer amended an existing order 11-4-13 and I'm still waiting.

I sure hope not they built mine dec 3 and the day I picked it up it was -20 outside can't imagine it would be as cold in mid march when cars are built.. Might have more to do with snow than cold as they drive 1LE's to another building for the hood wrap

It's -14 where I'm at. Fellas, I wouldn't want them to build my car. No matter how badly I want it. You might be able to place an order, but don't expect it to be built for a while.

FYI - I've just sent off an email to Becky @ Rodgers to see if I can order my car today. I'll let everyone know what the answer is.

Our salesman just called and is placing the order as we speak. Should know within the hour if it goes through along with the color choice of RRM. Hoping for a positive answer on both. Will let you know as soon as I hear.

Agreed! It's -19 here I have my car but haven't driven and won't until snow clears... Also when I picked mine up the tires were cracked and after 3 weeks in still waiting for my dealer to get new ones in

I've been lurking around this site waiting for my car to come in before i officially said hello but i have to tell .......my dealer called today and said they aren't taking orders on the 1LE.
They say..." 1Le option is still constrained...no ETA on when they will release it for production."

Sorry, work took over. Did receive the order number, awaiting allocation verification, but so far, no issues or call backs regarding problems. Fingers crossed. What's another week or two at this point.

Cars didn't start shipping last year (in bulk) until April. They started to sneak out the last week of March. And this winter has been way colder than last year, and for more of the US.

Understood. But that's about right for starting the orders now (with a 6 to 8 week lead time). So we should be able to order now.

Would it pay to just order a 2015? When can the orders for those start I wonder?
