The SS constraint is a mpg situation. GM has to maintain a specific average mpg total among all its models and they sold more v-8 cars than they expected to. They have no choice but to limit the v-8 to bring the average up. Lets pray that the Aveo sales to go up!

Can you document the source of this "information"?

Actually Paddock your still Number 2 :P Congrats on passing Classic, but how did JOE BASIL CHEVROLET, INC pass you guys? Thought you and Classic were way ahead.

This info came from an long time salesman at a Long Island Chevy dealer. They are quoting 4-6 months on an ordered car. I beleive him because I was given the same lead time from another dealer. I'm getting ready to order a SW 2ss and I don't expect to see until spring. I wouldn't drive it in the winter anyway so i'll just wait!

Sorry I wasn't clear. I wasn't referring to the constraint itself as that is a fact. I was asking about the REASON you listed (avg. mpg). Because as I posted a few posts ahead of yours, the reason given by GM is "supplier issues" and this was backed up by fbodfather (a Camaro insider if there ever was one). I don't consider ANY salesman a "reliable source" without additional evidence.

DS1937, you should be able to get one quicker from Paddock. I do know they get alot of allocations and more V8's than most other dealers. Same with Joe Basil. You should be able to get it alot sooner than Spring

Who in Gm gave you the info? Most of the so called facts on this site come from a dealer from what i have seen. I listed the average mpg because that is the constraint.

The Constraint is a Supplier Constraint. There is no MPG constraint. Think about it, if there was, why would GM apply it to one of their most popular vehicles? Why not put it on the Silverados, Suburbans, and Tahoes, which get lower MPG and aren't moving near as fast? I know it may be complicated but if you try real hard I sure you can get it.
