    Re: Production start

    Happy to hear that, kipsts!

    I double checked my resources and found that the XTS' start up date is indeed "early to mid-May 2012." From the start up date to the dealership lots is approximately 8-12 weeks. And, as I'm sure you all know, there are certain factors that could possibly effect scheduling: parts/component shortage, allocation adjustments for the new model year, shipping delays of parts and/or vehicles, general new MY start-up production delays, etc.

    Glad to see you're all so excited about the new models! Please let me know (via PM or Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com email) if you have additional questions, and I can investigate for you.

    Best,

    Katie

    Thanks, I am pretty excited. However as of today there is no update on my order/build since the deposit and order were accepted.

    Just talked with my dealer who did not have any additional information, though they thought they might see some cars early June. That seems doubtful unless production has started or is imminent. My XTS order status was updated to having "passed GM edit tables."

    Yesterday, at noon, I spotted a car carrier full of XTSes heading westbound on Hwy 401, about 30 miles west of Oshawa, Ontario.

    Very interesting. My dealer speculated they would first get some 'base' XTSs with the Platinum being produced after them. I would guess you could not see if any of the XTSs had Platinum badging.

    The carrier was traveling in the opposite direction, and was 7 lanes, 4 shoulders, and 2 barriers away. After it caught the corner of my eye, my first glance was approaching a rear 3/4 view, so I did not see any grills, and any badging would have been too distant to discern. They all had plenty of protective, white plastic (which contrasted sharply with the dark paint colours), but the greenhouse profile was very distinct.

    Just talked with my dealer regarding my April 17th XTS Platinum order. As of of his last update on Tuesday the production of the Platinum trim package for the XTS has not begun.
