    So I'm #3 on my dealer's list for Challengers. They have been allocated 6 but apparently 0 allocation for this month. Has anyone else had this happen?? Not sure if I should start making phone calls to other dealers or if this is common. Any help is appreciated.

    I think it maybe common. Remember half the month is already gone. Also matters if you can trust your dealer to be honest. Can't hurt to call around. Would your dealer refund your deposit if you found an immediate allocation? Mine will...

    I went to my Dealer today. They showed a 16 allocation (1) but they couldn't select it for an order. No prices and the option selection was the same as the 15s.

    I've got a call in with another trusted dealer and will report back from them as well.

    It's going to be very common. Spoke with my dealer and regional rep today. They got an allocation for 1 but rep said all allocations will be spread over the next six months so all are not ordered this week and they have 8000 pissed off people calling every two weeks for the next 8 months.

    I got my dealers allocation tied up but rep said it will be anywhere between Sept 10th and the next six months before it's released to order against.

    No response from the other dealer. I think the allocations over each month was a huge mistake, most dealers have no idea what is going on or when they need to order and people like me are not the waiting around begging people to take my money type. Sounds like allocations are based upon transmission type as well.

    Yes common. Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Medford OR got 1 of 9 for the model year, assigned for September. The remainder will be February 2016 with associated months respectively.

    How can the dealer tell when the allocation is assigned for?
