Is This Even Possible (Part 2)

I ordered at the end of June. As of today I'm still at 1100.

As of yesterday, my dealer says they have allocation, and my Camaro is #1 of 3 on their waiting list, but he said they did not have an allocation date. However, they also said they estimated the car would be there by the end of this month.

My question is: is that even possible? If it isn't, what's a good estimated day of arrival?

I think it means they haven't accepted it to be built yet. The dealer says once it gets going it "only takes a couple of days to make the car."

After GM picks up the order (event 2000) plan on another 6-8 weeks on average for delivery...

Sounds like your dealer is pulling your chain. If they had allocation like you say, your order would have been picked up already. 1100 means the order has been entered, but GM has not accepted it yet, and it won't get picked up until your dealer has allocation slots available. Even if your order got picked up today, you probably would be looking at a build date of the end of the month or the beginning of the next month. Some people on here have received their vehicles as soon as 5 weeks after GM has picked up the order, and others have waited much longer. Unfortunately, that means at the earliest, you would be looking at a delivery time frame of the end of October. But if your dealer does not have allocation, you could be sitting at 1100 for several months. I am in the same boat. I asked my dealer if they had allocation before I ordered, and they said yes. Now they say the do not, and I have been at 1100 for 6 weeks.

So if the dealer tells me they have allocation, should they not also be able to tell me their allocation date? I am aware that their estimated date of arrival was just that - an estimate, but still.

You may of misunderstood what the dealer was saying. I am guessing they are expecting to have your order "PLACED" by the end of the month. Which means as Slingshot stated about 6 to 8 weeks from that date.

1. First ask for your WorkBench ORDER # It will Look like this: "NVK6JHH". That can be used on Camaro5.com to track your car to followup on your dealer if you have any doubts.

2. Request a regular update via email on the status code on the order. "1100 "means the order was added to workbench and the combination or options and parts were ACCEPTED as being in the correct format. Once the order has been "PLACED" the status code will be in the 2000's. Status codes in the 3000's means the parts are being ordered and gathered for your car. 3400 means the order has been 'BROADCAST', think of it as a huge shoppig cart that has all your parts in it that is being wheeled to the beginning of the production line. 3800 your car is now PRODUCED and a VIN has been ISSUED. Now the excitement starts, 4000's are used for cars that are bayed and awaiting shipment and for cars in transit to the dealership. 5000 means your car is sitting at the dealership waiting for you and 6000 means you are at home with the checkbook balancing your accounts with the Camaro waiting in your garage for a road trip.

I hope this helps

If they have allocation, they will be able to tell you when the slots are available. The dealer gets a set amount of allocation slots per month. Actually, for the next couple of weeks, GM is on an allocation by week basis. If you ordered in June, and are first on their list, if your dealer had allocation slots, your order would have been picked up by now.

I specifically asked (each time) when I can expect my car, not when they will accept my order. I know my workbench number and continually bug Viz for tracking.

The sales manager said I'm first on their list NOW. I don't know if I always was.

If you can find out from your dealer when he will have an allocation slot available, you can better guess when you will have your car. Probably 8-10 weeks after that date, although I am not sure how much the production constraint on the SS will impact that figure, it could be longer. As for the other post for the guy who ordered his car in June and already received it, that can be possible if the dealer has allocation.

No problem. I'm in the same boat, so I've already gone through and asked all the same questions. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Is GM supposed to be taking allocations monthly or weekly from dealerships? I thought I've heard monthly... this dealer taking 2 per month, while that one takes 3... but it looks like I've seen a lot of people commenting on weekly allocations?

Allocations were monthly up until the last week or so. GM is doing weekly allocations through 9/17 I believe.

Does that mean a dealership who was originally doing 2 allocations per month should now be doing 2 allocation a week, at least for the next few weeks?

No, it just means that each dealership gets allocation slots on a weekly basis, instead of monthly. The last I saw, this will only be occurring for the next 2 weeks or so. You will have to talk to you dealer and find out what their allocation schedule is, as it is different for each one.

Well... my salesman told me today that he had several orders skipped by GM in yesterday's allocation pull. They were ALL SS's. GM took all the V6's & left the V8's. SS's are now on constraint until the end of the model year. GM will only be producing a few SS's. So, in answer to your question... probably not gonna see it anytime soon, unless it's ALREADY reached 3000 status.

I just need to vent!!!

I just spoke to our dealership this morning, after placing our order 3 weeks ago, and he said that they got an allocation for an SS, but not an LT, which is what I have ordered. Oh, and my order had to be recalibrated last week after the addition of the back up sensors, and they didn't get an allocation anyway. Oh, and when we placed our order, 3 weeks ago, they had been getting allocations out the wazoo, but now, nothing. Oh, and when we placed our order, 3 weeks ago, there were customers ahead of us that had their cars built within a week of ordering. If it didn't mean losing our $1000 deposit, I would chuck the whole thing until my Soldier get's home from Iraq, cause if that car is not sitting in my driveway before he deploys, he is going to be the most miserable human being on the planet! OK - I feel better now, thanks for reading the rant!
