    Just wondering if anyone has actually received a VIN from yesterdays Dec. allocation. It seems there are a lot of people who contacted their dealers and either they have no update or the dealer received their new allocation but shocking it was for someone else, which just sounds like a game to string us along. Supposedly my dealer is one of the biggest in the country and I say supposedly because I have no idea and this is what they told me (Field's, Glenview, IL), and they received no news yesterday about any new allocation. If you have any real info please let us know because I know I am not the only one wondering about this. Maybe RS can chime in or anyone who knows what is happening, thanks

    Talked to a different dealer today. He said 2nd allocation was only 500 units. But the first allocation was 3 months long...1500 units, and future allocations are monthly, so maybe it's the same number bring produced, but have also heard only 4 allocations this year, that means 3000 total cars built. Hope not.

    Talked to my dealer today. Supposedly I will know by the weekend if Chrysler picks up my order. Another dealer told me they had a conference call with Chrysler on Tuesday. They could not place an order with either the Laguna leather or the black hood.

    All I can say, with the pile of orders already in they shouldn't even say orders are open. Many of us have been waiting for a vin for a long time. I'll never complain about ordering Jeeps or any other vehicle after this process.

    I am supposed to order my new truck right now but after this fiasco the ram is now down the food chain. Guess I'll have to drink a few more beers so Ford can build me a new truck.

    Ridiculous. I've ordered cars in the past. This is my first from Dodge. By far the worst experience. It's a shame too since they want as many cars as possible on the streets. Or so they said.

    What I understood from RS is 500 a month or more. I think the allotment discussion is now monthly. Hopefully, they will be moving them out faster now!:)

    The "500" estimate was on the low side, and only for January, due to a shorter production month (plant shutdown Jan 1-5). I really wouldn't be surprised to see close to 8k or higher, and maybe even 10k for 2015 model year.
