1) My dealer tells me he got thier first RL in. Took 17 days from broadcast (3400) to shipping. (Less than 50 miles from plant, so final delivery added basically nothing to time)
2) Poster on this board indicates in signature that it took 13 days for his to go from 3400 to shipping

Many had speculated how the QA/Testing process would be once RLs kicked in again... would it be an extensive amount of time?..

Well, I guess we have our answer, they are cranking them out of there fast... Build, QA, and Ship in around 2 weeks is MUCHO GRANDE!!!

For some reason the GXP's aren't going as fast as the Red Lines. Or it doesn't seem that way.

They really thought QC would take a long dime but it isn't.

Latest News

:willy:
Stopped at my favorite Saturn Dealer this afternoon and the latest is that Monday it should make that long trip 3-hours to Tulsa, Ok form Oklahoma City. Planning on picking it up Tuesday, still have to wait on that CALL.
I started to mention the Jackie Cooper Transit, but being it was Saturday and the last big car show for the Tuesday gathering was TODAY and no R/L sky to show, does not matter to me now when I get it. All summer bragging about my car and no one will see it until Spring-March. At least in Oklahoma I can drive it most of the winter but no car shows till spring to show her off at :driving: Take you time Saturn no hurry now it will be maybe once a week to work car. Most days will be top up to work and that sunny drive home at dusk, daylight saving time starts today :eek:
I guess its like getting a new bicycle for Christmas and you can't ride it till spring, should of got it for my Birthday in April. Just have lost all the thrill, still want the car don't get me wrong, but the Wahoo is gone :rolleyes:

Deluke,
Do you know or of someone that can help me find out the train box car number and Truck transport name for me. My salesguy does not have a clue on this one. I do know it will go by train to Chicago and then by truck transport to my dealer in Appleton, WI. Any direction or help would be great. By the way I did all the paper work today, tax, title , loan stuff, so all I have to do is yank the keys out of salesmans hands when it gets to me:D

You have to have your Sales Manager call DBC ( Dealer Buiness Center ) and get the rail car number. DON"T go to your Salesman, they can't do it. You have to go to the General Manager or Sales Manager. Let me know if he won't get it for you. Then I will try something else.

Then you go here and track:

Wow!! That's amazing! So you are certain it hit 3400 on the 28th exactly, or thats when you found out about it?? (I know its a stupid question, but that just seems too fast!!)

I hit 3400 TWO days after you... simple math implies I could see my car this upcoming week?!?!?! Man, I hope its this week!!

I am repeating myself, but in an ultimate case of bad timing... The two most exciting things for me this year are taking the family to Florida, and getting my Sky RL. I've been concerned about it for a while, thought I was in the clear (thinking car comes a little later), but man it really seems like my car will arrive while I am on vacation Nov 4-11!!!!!

AArrghh.. I really dont want my new car hanging around the dealership for week!!!!! I want it in this week so that I can tuck it away safely, far away from the hands of dealership traffic!
