GM has no reason to delay our orders, think about it, with the economy they need all the income they can get, i have confidence that they will be doing pre orders as fast as possible until they are finished because they have buyers lined up... they have no reason to be playing games when they have customers lined up to pay for cars....

there should be a large number of cars in transit at any point in time see if this math makes sense to anyone

about 200 cars produced a day lets say

and my dealer said it can take a week to 10 days for the car to arrive after being built

so 500 to 1000 cars could potentially be customer orders that have not been delivered yet....

In order to keep the production line moving when contraints come up, they're building other cars.......that's reasonable and expected. Calm down, you've waited this long and we are all weeks away from getting this awesome car.

a couple dozen delivered orders out of over 7000+ = 'many'? Can I borrow your calculator? I can resolve our whole deficit problem pretty quickly.

Although us enthusiasts are a factor, fact remains we are a small factor in the survival of GM. They need to sell a lot more than 15,000 pre orders. It just makes sense for them to build more for the lots.

I'm about to say F*ck THEM and buy my brother-in-law's 67SS RS and a Scion XD at cost

I think GM wants all of us to cancel our orders and buy Fiats. If my car is not produced and delivered in 60 days I will cancel the order just out of principle. Seriously, why sell a car that you cannot deliver. I didn't spend 40 grand to get treated like a d-bag.

If your reading this GM please take notice I will buy a Shelby in 60 days!!! (or a Fiat....cao for now)

I absolutely understand everyone's frustration with the wait, but I'd hope everyone would be willing to think more big picture.

GM just discontinued Pontiac to stay afloat http://www.pontiac.com/owners/pontia...ued-statement/

Several other brands are on the auction block (Hummer, Saturn, Opel, & Saab) http://www.montrealgazette.com/Cars/...y.html?tab=VID (3rd paragraph)

I have no doubt GM / Chevrolet & it's key brands will survive this, but they are going to have to loose some limbs to do so, and make smarter decisions knowing that if they dont, they won't survive.

So is it an inconvenience to everyone waiting for their car? Absolutely! But I'm sure there is a good business reason for it.

However... if there is not...

You're not one of those who was going to cancel if Ambient Lighting didn't go across the dash, are you?

How many people actually cancelled over that?

I haven't posted much but love to read your ideas. I don't think that GM just builds what they want and ship to whoever. They build based on orders,which are base on allocation. So what is built and shipped is what dealers order. If dealers don't order the pre orders, thats not GM's fault. Think about this: I'm sure Gm and the dealers are hurting for money. If I needed cash I would order a car I knew was sold so I could get my cash quickly. The first promised round of dealer cars are made now. I say relax and see what happens in May.
