Pushed out to 03 May now  :(

At least you're getting some information, even if it's BS.

 

All my dealer can tell me is it's still in Flint.

 

In one GM chat several weeks ago, they told me April 8th. Ever since then, nothing.

 

Mine was built in February, so currently been 'sitting' for 2 months. Nowhere near your wait.

My dealer says: Still the same.  No change.  Still sitting..lol

I feel your pain. My 2500HD Custom was built in December and was initially “in transit” with first delivery date of January 6th. It’s been delayed every two weeks since the beginning of January. Every two weeks I check in with the dealer and they say- delayed again. ETA just moved from 4/15 to 4/28. I’m sure 4/28 will come and go. It’s certainly a lesson in patience. 
 

What are your thoughts about new trucks sitting unused in a Flint lot since January?  Do you think this has any long term negatives from sitting other than surface rust?  Just seems like it can’t be good in any way but could it be problematic?

Well, they're not accumulating any miles! Going to be alot of '21, '22 and '23's hit the market, with low miles in '25-'30 when "they" won't register ice vehicles.

Nice...not really.  Heard something about this in the pipeline.  Glad to see it in letter form.  My dealer never mentioned this.

 

Do we have a range of VINs that are affected?

I ordered a gas 2500 Lt midnight edition in late January. It was two weeks before the price increase which the dealer (Banks Concord,NH) honored the original MSRP as a price protection discount on the P&S.. it came with 1k accessory allowance which I had to use right away.

Wow- what a great looking truck. I wonder why some gassers that ordered in Dec/Nov are just sitting and other gas 2500hd ordered in 2022 are already delivered?  Are the trucks from Canada shipping faster or are the older orders truly buried in Flint and will be the last to get dug out of the lot.

Yup... makes no sense. I waited for 7 months as well and now look back thinking, why did I do that? I should had just paid the ADM and been done with it... but I refused to pay over MSRP.

 

Finally took delivery at MSRP of an AT4 2500 that had a deal fall out. The other day, was curious and looked at the build date on the door jam and was built in March.... and I buy it in April, what the heck!?

 

I really think my ordered truck from back in October must be buried on some lot and GM is only pulling the easy to reach ones out. If I was waiting on a Chevy, I certainly would make sure it was being built in the Canadian factory... we seem to be a real mess down here. 

 

In Southern California, I'm seeing HD's briefly sit on lots and dealers now posting actual photos of them on-line (mostly Denalis or very low option trims). ADM's are coming down from the crazy $10,000 mark-up... $2,500-$5,000 now. 

 

Side Note: I ended up driving a few hours to a dealership who was not charging ADM. Motor City GMC in Bakersfield California has a policy of no ADM's on any vehicle. Worth checking out as they have a ton of trucks coming in all the time and high volume... I'd buy from them again.
