    Unhappy Any Platinum orders have a change of status yet?

    Has anyone who specifically placed an order for a XTS Platinum level seen a change in their order status yet? Mine placed on 04/17/2012 still shows "1100" as of today. This is disappointing in light of the fact that dealers are indicating they will be receiving GM spected XTSs this week.

    I prefer to think GM is verifying the primary production line works right before they do the closely watched direct orders.

    That is a nice thought, though I'm pretty sure they did not do that when they introduced the total change to the STS in 2005 model year.

    Mine has finally moved to a 2000. Order accepted by GM. Dealer used allocation to place order into production. Yahooooo!

    My Platinum status has just be changed to "(3000) Order accepted by production control. Parts being ordered and production process is underway." Wahooo!

    Question Re: Any Platinum orders have a change of status yet?

    Unfortunately the Vehicle Status Tracking service (GMConnects) sent out a note today saying it is ceasing operation. Does anyone know of any other way to directly track progress on an order in addition to going through your dealer? Relatedly my order (April 19, 2012) was changed to a "3400" status a few days ago.

    Good news, it appears the GMConnects is back up and running so you can do vehicle tracking status again.

    Odered my Platinum 6/21. Spoke to dealer yesterday (7/21) and he said car was released for production this week, and should be delivered to me by end of August. Is this realistic? I'll post a note when it happens.
    Surprise...my dealer called yesterday (7/30) and said my XTS was in transit from the factory and should be ready for pick up by 8/8 or so. Can they make them that fast?? We'll see.

    Thumbs up Re: Any Platinum orders have a change of status yet?

    Good news for you and certainly an August delivery sounds possible. My order was placed back in April and accepted on April 20, 2012. Its status was changed to 3400 last week with a TPW (tentative production week) of this week. It might actually be getting close to being a reality

    Just got an update today and great news (for me that is ) : My Platinum has been built and I have my VIN. No delivery date as yet but it is getting closer!
