    My dealer told me he would contact me when he got an allocation date. Is this the date the vehicle is supposed to arrive at the dealership? Also, is the order status consistently updated so they would know when it goes into production?

    tw0053:

    On a previous post you said that you had a preliminary order detail and an order number. Now, you say you stealer still has to wait for an allocation date...you need to ask your stealer if he has allocation for escalades. I think you meant to say a production date, right? My stealer is also waiting for a production date. I just emailed my stealer to see if I could cancel the order because of the wait. I asked him for my deposit back if the escalade was not built yet. I found three escalades here in Southern California and will call to see if they accept the GM supplier discount. Those three escalades are on the lot....

    The dealer said he had allocation and I have the papers showing the vehicle was ordered, but the dealer told me he would call me when he got an allocation date. Maybe he misspoke. I will have to call him tomorrow to find out exactly what is going on.

    Re: Wait Time For An Ordered Escalade

    tw0053:
    Just got word that my Escalade, loaded except for Navigation, has been built and shipped out from Arlington, TX.
    Here is my time line.....

    March 31, 2006 wrote up order with stealership
    April 21, 2006 order accepted by GM
    May 10, 2006 Escalade is built
    May 13, 2006 threaten stealership to cancel order
    May 15, 2006 got call from stealership that Escalade was built on
    May 10 and should arrive May 23....

    My stealership had allocation and said that "sold, retail orders go to the head of the built process". So my 22" wheels must have been taken off another Escalade.

    CDBLU,

    That's great. Only one more week. I talked to my dealer yesterday and expects to get what he calls an allocation date (the date the truck is being built and when it should arrive) some time within the next week. I have also heard before that sold orders get priority. Hopefully, if there is any shortages on the nav system, my truck will get it over others.

    Re: Wait Time For An Ordered Escalade

    I FINALLY found out that my EXT will be finished this week and headed to Tennessee. Delivery time is 14-21 days (i cant figure that one out...maybe it takes a while to get through customs or something) Hell, i could go get it myself and have it back home in 3-4 days. Anyway, worst case scenario puts my EXT home on/around June 11th. That will be almost exactly 3 months from the time i placed my order until the time i accepted delivery.

    Re: Wait Time For An Ordered Escalade

    I was told by a dealer that delivery is a logistical challenge.

    1. Completed vehicles get grouped into trainloads going into a general direction, i.e., to a central drop point that handles dealers in TN.

    2. Once enough vehicles are going there, a rail pick-up is made.

    3. Once dropped into the distribution center that services your dealer, a schedule is created for a truck-delivery.

    4. Enough vehicles must be going at one time before such a pick-up by truck driver is scheduled.

    This sounds like it could be made better, but if you think about it, its about as good as its going to get.

    Dave

    Wow Dave, that sucks. I didnt know it was such a hassle. The only good thing is that i am in Brazil and i wont be home until June 5th anyway. If i was home, i would tell them that i will make a road trip and go get it, lol.

    Re: Wait Time For An Ordered Escalade

    Mine is "in transit" now. When it gets to the dealership i will have him take some pics and send to me and i will post them (i wont be home from Brazil until the 5th of June).

    Since i cant depend on 07slade because of her overly cluttered purse, looks like that will be the only way i will be able to see one.

    hehe
