Well, just spoke with my dealer. He said they got 7 images this week and that they have been getting 5 to 7 per week (images that is, sadly, not deliveries). He said if the pattern holds true, I should get imaged and have a VIN by the end of next week. So I guess I should expect delivery by end of May or middle of June. Perfect for me. Get a few more paychecks (I only get paid once a month which sucks), finish payments on my '02 VUE (last payment in May), and finally, I have vacation the last week of June...can anyone say tour of America :) Or maybe more like the Grizzwald family vacation with my luck. Anyway, I was excited and had to announce it somewhere.

How do they manage that?? I imaged end of March -- no VIN and I really don't think I'll see a car until early June....
Are you figuring this or is this a line from the dealer?

I got imaged 2 1/2 weeks ago and I still don't have a TPW, there is no way you will get your vin one week after you get your image. I am expecting my vin 1 month after my image date (if I'm lucky). I think my TPW date will probably be mid may and then will get my car early june. But who knows.

That's just what he told me. He said, they've been getting imaged (like I said 5-7 a week) and then a few days later they have VINs. He said its been working that way recently. I was guessing on the delivery date. But the dealer told me the image/VIN thing. I have to trust him since they've already had 6 deliveries and currently have 17 images w/VINs. The post on their website weekly to update.

Its just a waiting game. Just when you think you know whats going on, the game changes. My dealer just got my invoice today and looks like it will still be a 1 to 2 week wait... :D

I have to raise the flag here
OK if you are in CA or a warm state I can see a dealer getting 40 SKYs for his allotment. Since January (let's give him one car for Jan) you'd have, conservatively 50-70 cars ordered (and STILL getting 5-7 a WEEK?) Remember Saturn is only building 10,000 cars that is 20 – Twenty - XX per dealer.
And they have had 6 deliveries.... So there are at the very least 35 cars out there undelivered to his store?? And he has VINs for them??

I have to put down a thick circle of salt here. . . Especially after you say he told you he has 17 with VINs, ask what happened to the other 20 -- if he is getting 5-7 images a week....

sky-high

My dealer in Indy contacted me yesterday and said there is a hold on all shipments until the tire rub issue is fixed on all cars produced and waiting for shipping. I was imaged on 3/6/06 and still at code 30 as far as I know. He said mine is scheduled fpr delivery the week of May 15th. They do have a fix for the tire rub problem. So we all keep waiting!!!!!!!!!!:

If that is good info -- then it is OK with me -- I'd rather have that problem eliminated before I get my car....

Does anyone know if the order number has any type of sequence like the VIN number. I have order number GGG732, so what that mean mine was ordered say before GGR792, as an example?? Anyone know?
