    I think FCA can build all orders in their system by Sept 1, 2015 assuming the following...

    Lets say 9000 cars ordered since 9/9. Of these 15% are duplicates, so true number of real orders are 7700..both cust sold and dealer. If 2500 have been shipped, that would leave 5200ish left to build MY2015(with orders remaining cut off). As I recall, RS said something like 925 per month can be built.....so that would require about 5.5 more months of builds.....ending around Sept1,2015. So with this example, we all get 2015's, we don't have to re-up for 2016's edition of VON Hell and no $$$increase. FCA is all caught up and ready for 2016 order banks to open 8/25 per RS estimate. Some here will feel reassured by my example while will disagree. No problem...love to her anyones thoughts.All numbers are very rough estimates.

    Best they have done to date is 175 per week. 700 per month would only be achievable if there were no supply issues. Best case would be 5.5 months x 700= 3850. I really think we are going to be a little short this model year unless Dodge can figure out how to ramp up production. Been following the numbers since October.

    I am ready to file a Law Suit for consumer fraud! I will file a Class Action against Chrysler unless I get my VIN vs VON in the near future. Why would Chrysler accept orders from dealers with NO allocation? I have been waiting since 9/9 @9:18 AM when my order was accepted. I am #1 Hellcat order from my dealership who has not gotten allocation yet for a single car.

    I can only say that for a business to succeed over the long run, management must produce what the customer demands in a reasonable time frame and at an acceptable level of quality...it's time...for that to be done.:(

    That may be a tough nut to crack, if you read the fine print at the bottom of your VON sheet. Another question would be, why roll out the Charger, when you have unfilled A8 Challenger orders from 9/9/14 ? The best we have from our VON sheet is that we tried, and we have price protection...

    How about fraudulent/fake dealer orders? There's got to be a lot of those, too. That's part of the problem here.

    I think the real unknown is going to be parts. Probably superchargers would be one guess. I'm sure there are other items/materials/parts that may fall short of the August time frame for production and shipping time frames.

    I spoke to Tim K and got nothing but Lip Service without telling me YES or NO if my car would be built. My order was 1st accepted with a sunroof and black hood then went the sunroof then the hood the only thing I got from all this waiting was changing my wheels to Brass Monkey. IF I can get my car by the summer I would be happy!

    All I know is their "clarified allocation" with flow chart and one car a month rule was so bad, it lasted only 11 days.

    I find it hard to believe that FCA doesn't have at least one sys admin with some UNIX background that can write a simple script to parse the existing POCs, dumped as colon delimited text, and sort them by name/zip and find possible duplicate names/orders. This would be step one.

    At that point, it would be very easy to parse the orders, make some calls and cancel the excess orders. Too simple, yes ? Even an intern could do it fat fingered in a few days....
