Dealer Allocations?

Another dealer said my dealer that I’m about to get a car from has no allocations left and it would be well past 6 months before I would take delivery.

Can dealers take orders for cars when they have zero allocations left?

Thanks everyone,

Yes they absolutely can. My dealer had 24 allocations and have 38 sold at the moment.

Sounds about right for the timeline also, the allocation process is allowing GM to fill orders thru Q3. Any orders past the allocation are supposed to be built after Q3, unless something drastically changes.

The numbers were all just estimates. They may end up getting through the early production guide ahead of schedule.

The allocations are assigned quarterly, not annually.

Not true.

For the Camaro due to it's preordering, GM gave a "production guide number" to each dealer that told them how many they could expect to see up through third quarter (september) of this year. This is often incorrectly referred to as "allocation". It was just a guide for dealers to go off of for preorders, nothing more.

Dealers are informed of their allocation monthly (around the middle of the month) and it tells them what week they'll get allocation and how much they'll get. Then, in the weeks that were specified in the allocation report, they can actually place the orders.

and this as well as how these allocations are decided, is where all the chaos, head scratching and frustration begins!

How do you know how many allocations a dealer gets? Do you just have to take the dealers word for it?

My dealer originally had 2 allocations and now has 3. Does this mean that a third car is expected throught the third quarter of this year?

yes you have to take their word for it, and 3rd allocation is just an extra order they can place. 3rd quarter really has nothing to do with it. my dealer has 13 allocations. 5 built so far and the rest of us waiting.

3rd quarter is just an estimated deadline of when all the allocations should be completed by.

dealers are being given additional allocations.
They've got the assembly line up and running pretty well and dealers are closing so there are more available spots.

i would ask each dealer what allocation # you would be, then ask how many orders are in front of you waiting to be accepted by GM.........

youre better being #10 if 9 have already been accepted than being #5 and only 1 was accepted.

The dealer cannot add allocations. They are earned throught the GM system based upon prior sales and deliveries. For a dealer (or little birdie)to tell you that is

We have got to stop listening to the little f^&*(ing birdies and start listening to those that are in the know.

what ever ,, I was told they are getting allocations every dealer i have spoken to has told me something different, I see no reason why the person would lie,, I was simply told there are going to be more allocations period,, my order is placed already, I also heard allocations would be added from stores that close down but I didnt hear that from the same guy,
Is it possible they got allocations from GM ? why would the guy lie? you know what as far as from little birdies for the most part thats all we got the 1 800# is garbage and there isnt enough info out there from GM at all, Every store I call has a different story on the allocations and the ball park figures on our cars I get your not getting a car to youll get it in 9 months macmulkin Chevy out of state was the most informative by far so far
