First of all Your Welcome !!! Second at least they are looking at your order once in a while. That is a good sign. The production stop really is messing things up. But hang in there. If you want to go with a base sky thats fine. But i would thry waiting it out. the Red Line will be so awsome !!!!My husband and I are yet another frustrated customer of Saturn. We ordered our Redline in July and have heard absolutely nothing regarding our car. (Thank you Deluke for taking the ball that these people have dropped.) My husband checks in at the dealership every few weeks and they act dumb. We had to ask for our order number and they grudgingly gave it to us. They claim to not know how to look up the event codes. (We have been at event code 2030 since 8/7) Our sales person is very friendly but can't give us much info. We expected a wait and were told 6-8 mos. but being left in the dark is really frustrating. When my husband checked in last week he was told we would probably get our car in 2008! That is a bit longer than 8 Months!:banghead: I don't want to be whiny but I just don't understand how long Saturn can expect to treat Customers like this.
What is really irritating is that the Owner of the dealership has his Redline and he just purchased another on Ebay. When we asked about the one he purchased on auction we discovered it may also be his personal car. Hmmm. Ok now we have Car envy. That is an unattractive attribute we need to work on.
At this time we are rethinking our strategy and may be open to a base model with similiar color and options. At least we could enjoy being a member of our local Sky/Sol Club! Hey Earnest you want to let Serenity go to a loving home??? We have horses dogs and plenty of other cars for her to play with!
Ok I think I better go now before I really LOOSE my marbles!:willy:
Complaining and ranting is good sometimes, it makes you feel alot better mentally when your done. So you could sit and wait for 12 months and not say a word if you want to but that doesn't mean everyone has to. If it takes another 8 months they can keep the GXP I don't need a car. I'll buy something else. Maybe the 2 seater Jag.To all the people that are complaining: Would you rather they deliver your brand new, $30,000 purchase with known defects? It's not like they're choosing not to produce them or that they aren't trying to improve the design...
If it takes another 8 months for them to get it right, then either wait the 8 months or cancel your order. There's no point on complaining to anyone, especially Saturn. It's done when it's done.
I beg to differ, deluke...Go ahead people if it makes you feel better complain all you want. Most of us will listen. We caan't do anything about it but we will listen and you will feel alot better.
Or try not to get all bent out of shape about a month or two of waiting, and enjoy life for what it is...I'm a strong believer in the squeaky wheel gets the grease.
I have a huge mouth and had my first Sky Midnight Blue loaded manual delivered in March.
My second one a Bluestone Redline automatic loaded delivered in September.
Deluke will tell you Im loud and obnoxious in a good way.
Speak-up your the customer let them know what you expect from them.
Thanks for the laugh Cuinoz. That was cute! I called my dealer today to see what is going on. I make it light and fun when I call, and they said to call any time. They told me they would call me when a Redline comes in. Well, guess what gang. They got one in last week and didn't call me. He told me the owner came in within the hour, picked up the car and went on vacation. This was at Saturn of Cerritos in CA. Is that anyone on our forum? He said they should be ordering my RL the second week in December. Then it's about 8 weeks from then to take possession. Hopefully, I will get it for my birthday! Whoooo hoooo. It is difficult to wait and I read your posts daily, getting excited for all of you who have taken delivery. I know it is worth the wait, especially to get a better made car. Hang in their group. It is worth it.....it is worth it.....it is worth it...etc. etc. etc. :yesnod:Thanks "deluke".
There, now I've said it and I DO feel better.:jester:
There are 20 RL orders ahead of you at a dealership in Wisconsin??1 - :agree: I agree with you, the wait sucks. I was told from June that December I could expect my RL. No chance in h$ll that will happen when I am #21 and #1 has yet to get theirs locally. I am now at next AUGUST (2008 model and PRICE!!!!)
