Just got back from my dealer, was told by him that Red Leather Interior is on an indefinite hold. So we went into my order to change it to Black Leather and guess what, you guessed it, it would not let me change the interior, flat out in red letters "Cannot change interior trim". Now will somebody define indefinite in, not dictionary definition, but Saturn"sd definition. Me and my GM are befuddled by the systems inability to make a change. I have my suspicions though. Some of you dealer types, or sources in the now so to speak, or anyone with a wild guess, just jump right in and let me know your 2cents worth!:lol: :lol: :D

If it is at 030, you should be able to make any changes, right? But anyway, I am just poor old country boy from TEXAS, and all this high tech 'pewter stuff is befuddling to me. Like that letter I gots the totherr day, sez he will pay me money iffen I lets him drill holes on my land, now ain't that the craziest thang ya'll ever heard? Ifeen that don't tear the rag offen the bush, I don't know what does.:lol: :lol: :lol: :cheers: :thumbs:

Just called my Saturn dealership...they said the first two SKY's that they will be getting are black...in two weeks ??? Also I know it doesn't make a difference what # you are in line because of the different options people want...but when I signed up there were 19 other people who had put deposits down in front of me...and now I am #9!...sooo many people have given up.:rolleyes:

Ernest, I ordered a Silver Pearl/Red interior as well. However, I asked if I could change part of my order (add XM) and I couldn't do it either. This was on Monday and mine wasn't past 030.

After I read that Sky Dealer's initial image had been produced, I sent a note asking my dealer if that is why I couldn't change my order. He said he was just about to call me as his information shows that it skipped a TPW and went straight to produced.

That might be why you can't change yours. My guess is that they underestimated the sales of the red interior. So the people who were first in line will (hopefully) get it, but they'll lock out further orders until they get more inventory in. Just my 0.02....:D

I think that may be the case, the ones not produced will not be able to order the red and black until it becomes available again,but i would assume(you know what that means when you assume) that tose that will not let you chang now have already gone through the system.

I thought once it was accepted by POMS (code 26) that it was locked to changes... and if not code 026 then definitely at code 30

Ernest,

If your order was already accepted with the Red/Black interior trim then your Sky is already being built that way. You where one of the few that got to get theirs with the two tone Red/Black. If the choice was NOT available at the time of the order, it would had not been accepted. You should be OK :thumbs:

Regards,

:willy: S.D. :willy:

So do they mean that the red leather is on hold as of that minute or that they would not be excepting anymore red leather orders? I was told weaks ago that my order was excepted. Will this delay my Sky? Please help! I just convinced myself to work on patience ( I really am trying!) Or does it mean since my order was excepted as is then they excepted it be for they ran out of red leather?

Opinion will help greatly

If that is true then i definatley make the right decision. My dealer called on Friday to let us know our order was going in next week and we changed from red to all black interior. Would have been :banghead: :cuss: if i read this and we hadn't changed it.

Kimmi Slow down. Iffen your order(image) was accepted before the red garbage came about then it is safe to assume that your auto has got what you ordered on it laid aside to be put on in the build process. Auto manufactures are not like my cooking. They don't halfway though the omlet say dam I forgot the cheese. Think about it. Skip...:cool: :cool:

I would not be so concerned. If you wander over to the Solstice forum, you will see a thread that keeps people up on the options that are going in and out of availability. When an item is not available that week, it ussually shows up the next. Now, if it is actually stopping you from ordering, that is another matter, but I don't think this is the case. We all knew the two tone leather would be in short supply, if you want it, you might have to wait (maybe you didn't know - that's why you need to read abit over at the solstice site). My friend wants an automatic AND two tone leather. She is 3rd on list, I am 5th, I might get mine before she does because I want black leather and standard shift. She wants it enough to wait - that's her choice.

That said, I gotta believe GM has one of the most extensive on-time ordering systems in the world. Do you think GM is wondering where their leather seats are? I gotta believe they are hammering their suppliers and know exactly when things will arrive. And guess what, that supplier is under contract to produce or get canned. Believe me, with all this going on - it won't be long between shortages.
