I'm talking 600 more for the rest of the week TOTAL. OshawaInsider told us months ago they could make over 400 a day at full production.

Any guess at how long it will take to hit full production mode at 450 a day?

You serious? (Obviously you would know) From what "others" said earlier on, it would be all of 1-2 months before they thought you could fill the pipeline with enough components to sustain full production levels. I'm happy if they were mistaken...

this is a great day, and hopefully it means a turnaround for GM... I just changed my order from cyber gray to red jewel tint... my dealer told me I have 1.5 to 2 month wait till mine is built and it's gonna be a painfull wait...

Question for Oshawa Employees???

I am the Certified Internet Manager at one of Wisconsin's largest volume GM dealers. I was hoping to get some insight into the build capabilities at Oshawa so we can give our customers an idea of when their car will be built. We will have five allocations for 2009 and all of them are sold. The trouble is here is that we don't get order #2 until order #1 is built (and so on). It's hard to tell the guy with order #2 if he'll be getting his car in June or October.

Any help here would be appreciated!!

Estimated daily production is targeted at 450 units/day. Right now its about 1/3 of that and will ramp up in the coming weeks.
