    That's a different vehicle gmfamily, your thinking of the plum Kona ESV. The one in his link is black with kona and appears to be on their lot.

    You both are correct! Damn I give up trying to figure out what is going on with these orders and deliveries. How can a dealer get a Kona for sale and we have members you have been waiting forever still sitting at 1100?? Also GM is still saying Kona is on constraint, what in the world is going on?


    Here is a White Diamond with Kona as well.

    Re: Wailt Time for Kona Option

    Kona is growing on me again. I initially ordered kona, switched to black, then to shale and ended up getting black since that was the only interior color available. Now I find myself liking Kona again! I still am partial to shale though. In darker lights the Kona looks good, it's just in bright light that I think it looks too orange.

    ----------

    Well Sewell is probably the top dealer in the country and very close to the plant, it would make sense they'd get one first. I agree pre-orders should be fulfilled first though. It seems to me GM doesn't care about pre-orders since they are already sold. They want to make unsold vehicles first to get even more sales. Just a theory..

    Just posted another Kona, this time in White Diamond, also at a TX dealer. I had Kona ordered as well, I thought it would be no problem getting it, as Kona was pushed during the press and media events.

    Cadillac's U.S. sales chief resigned yesterday. Seems to me the ones who should have resigned are the heads of production and delivery!

    They need to fire everyone who is responsible for hiding info about ignition problems,
    And fire more people for horrible planning and horrible customer care.

    After all this problems
    They can at least send us little gift or phone call to make us feel cared.
    Will they do any of that ?!!!
    I don't think so.....


    All they do is send a letter
    Don't let anyone in passenger seat but it's ok to drive your truck !!!!!!!!
    Shame on GM treating loyal buyers like this and more for sending stupid letters.

    Again, thanks for your assistance and will keep everyone informed on the continued story as it evolves. Hopefully, will have a happy ending and not more confusion and additional drama.

    Called my salesman late last night on his cell since he is off on Tuesdays. And yes, my premium WD/Kona was delivered to our dealer on Monday night. They worked Tuesday checking it out and our VIN number showed no recall notifications. Needless to say, my wife and I (it is her ride) went to the dealer around 10 this morning and after a few hours at our dealer, brought our new baby home!!!! (5 month pregnancy, better than 9 months).

    I will take some pictures and post on Thursday. Reading the manual so I can update some features for my wife. I have a 13 XTS so I am up on CUE system and some of the other features.

    Great ride so far as compared to our 11 platinum we traded today.

    Thanks to everyone who assisted in tracking and communication during our wait time.

    Regards,
    Milt

    That's crazy that you found out on these forums your car was delivered before the dealer even told you. Just one more example of Cadillacs failure to communicate with us.
