    Ordering 07 from dealer question

    What is the procedure? I placed an order last week and have not had an update if the order was accepted yet or anything. I called the dealer and they say they will contact me when they know more. Is there anything I can do or should be doing to speed the process up?

    Oh wow, i hope you arent holding your breath.

    It was almost exactly 3 months from the day i placed my order till my EXT showed up.

    There is nothing you can do to speed up the process and finding out where your truck is in the process is like pulling teeth.

    Once your order is processed by Cadillac, it will be given a number. It may be weeks before they actually build it...depending on how many are ahead of you. Once it is put into production, it will only take about a week to build it. Then it will be classified as "in transit". Once it is in transit, you are looking at another 2-3 weeks for it to arrive.

    Good luck

    As far as I know there is nothing you can do to speed up the process. We ordered ours in Feb and it came in two months later. Maybe calling them more often will entice them to get your truck in sooner. It's definately worth the wait!!! Congrats!!!

    I know it will be a few months and that doesn't bother me. What is bothering me is waiting to hear the order was placed and accepted. I would hate to wait 2 months and then find out the order was never placed. I'm still waiting for the dealer to call me back and let me know if it went in.

    I waited 15 weeks to find out that GM and not my dealership had a problem with my Escalade order, I am not allowed to say anything except that I am now being taken care of, and it's much better than I could have dreamed.

    I Was In The Same Boat As You Are. Its Been 6 Sixs Since I Ordered My 07 Ext And No News Yet. I Stoped By The Dealer And They Said It Hasnt Been Built Yet. I Guess They Start Building Them In Mexico And There Closed For 2 Weeks. My Sales Is Guessing Another Month Which Im Guessing Will Be More. He Said There Are Currently No Restrictions On Any Items. Hope This Helps.

    I think they build the Escalades in Arlington and the EXT's in Mexico.
    Either way I think i'm going to stop calling and emailing them and see what happens. Thanks to all for the posts.

    I finally got my truck on tuesday. I ordered mine at the end of March. I think your only recourse is to wait or check with other dealers to see if they have any in stock with the options you want. I talked to several dealers while waiting for my truck and they had one or two sitting on the lot unsold so there might be one two around in your area.
