    You're right of course. I'm sure all numbers must fall in line. It just don't feel right.
    My dealer said they felt bad about me having to wait so long. So they said the owner told them to make me an offer. They said I could pick any vehicle from the preened lot, we'd come to terms on price, and when my cat came in I can have ALL my money back. We drove several. Including a super bee with 160 miles on it. Wound up doing the deal on a 2014 Hertz Penske Mustang GT with 18k on it. Fun ride for sure. Only 150 made. But now I'm kinda stuck. I have found a few dealers with in stock cats with OK pricing. But I really don't need both cars.
    I'm the only Charger on order at my dealer. Guess I'll just ride it out.

    I had ordered a Charger on 2/14 and it went from BX status to BG and never got scheduled for build. Three months later I found another one at another dealer and bought it. Just to share what happened to me.

    I ordered the same car on 1/29...VON 33259700 from Roanoke. Still waiting and hoping it will be built and the 2015 price honored by FCA.

    Hearing you guys makes me wonder if 2016 builds will take just as long. Frankly, it really doesn't bother me too much, but if it comes up on a year with little to no communication from the dealer, then I'd probably raise a stink with them.

    9 months at the very most would be an acceptable amount of time that I'd allow the order to be open before i seriously start looking at other options - incuding dealer stock. But if I ordered a rare color like Go Mango or PCP, then I'd feel obligated to stay locked in to the order for the long haul, just because of the desirability of those colors.

    Don't worry. I got it.

    The Cat I ordered in Jan is being built now. The thing is I found another one 3 months ago. It received a VIN one week after I bought mine and it's still only halfway through the process. Hope yours gets built soon.

    If no VIN now on a Charger then you are out of schlitz!

    My Jan VON is still sitting and word from regional sales rep is that build schedules are full

    I'm sure glad I found another Charger. The one I ordered in Feb. was never scheduled for build. But I saw later VON's scheduled.
