    Was issued Vin and D status a month a go. A week ago the dealer called and said it was now D1 status I was getting excited. Did some research and found that they could get an updated POC with the all info on it. When I received it I then realized I was in fact at D status. I called the dealer and they acted like they didn't know the difference.

    bummer

    ResumeSpeed may be able to help a little more. I actually got on chat with Dodge and they gave me some better info than the dealer. Might try that.

    Orders bounce between D and D1 all the time. Don't sweat it. If you were able to follow it every minute of the day, I bet it bounces back and forth 3 or 4 times a week. You're getting a car, don't worry big guy

    That's not necessarily true. If an order goes to D1 it's usually pretty much set to get built. It will go back to D if there's a part shortage or some other issue. Definitely doesn't bounce between the two very often if at all. As for mightykat, your order never made it to D1, sounds like your dealer was just toying with you.

    My order went from BX back to BG. When I asked about it, my dealer thought BG came after BX. So now I sit and wait in BG.

    its very true, we've had several people on this forum, who checked their status daily, and they were often told D1 one day and D the next and back to D1

    you're dealer is either lying to you or a moron (either are bad qualities to have in a salesman), BG is a step back from BX.

    BG is passed edit n/a for scheduling
    BX is passed eidt available for scheduling

    Yeah, I didn't worry about telling them. I figure, whether they know the difference or not, it's still going to take a while.

    About a month ago or so about everyone in BX went back to BG so FCA could sort out the bad dealer crap. I was in that boat. Now I'm D with a tentative build date and just keeping my spirits up.
