    Just joined here! I ordered a Challenger Hellcat at the end of Feb, its in BX status ... so I assume someday in the distant future it will ship. This is actually my FIRST chrysler that I've ever bought! They should ship mine faster don't you think??

    FWIW, I'm in the same boat, placed an order 2/25 for a Charger, really don't expect to ever see it.

    oh they will all ship! i don't care if its a 2015 or 2016 model year. As long as it is still the most powerful american muscle car ever produced (from an OEM) i will take it

    Hello, and welcome to the forum!

    So sorry to say, but your dealer has very unrealistic expectation/estimation for the arrival of your car. Once a VIN is issued, it has been taking 9 - 12 weeks (on average) for the car to be built/delivered. Try to prepare yourself for a longer wait than your dealer is telling you for the car you ordered. If you do not want to wait that long, then start calling around to many, many dealerships and see if you can grab an unsold order coming in or off the lot. People are also posting leads on unsold cars more and more every week. However, be prepared to pay over MSRP. I wish that the situation was better, but it is what it is.

    At any rate, hang around here with us, and you will learn a LOT about these cars and the order/build process from the forum members, I know I have!

    April

    Hello! Yes...i think they are out of the loop a bit on the time it will take. I'm not in any rush and not stressing. It comes when it comes

    I've heard from my dealer!!! He said Dodge is just waiting on superchargers and they are still trying to catch enough leprechaun's to squeeze them for the tint-additive that they use for the sublime green paint. Apparently leprechaun's are pretty hard to catch!!!

    So....I've seen people on this forum waiting 6 months for a VIN...some people look like they ordered in Jan/Feb and got VINs late march or April? Any rhyme or reason - just wondering....

    Your dealer is the best source of current info RE: your VON. Ask for an updated copy of your POC. If you are in VON/BX, thats as high as you can go before getting a VIN/D. Your dealer can only tell you where your at in line with your/their dealership.No way to know when an allocation to VIN will be forthcoming unless this info is communicated to them via their FCA regional rep...good luck.
