    Currently with the system, You don't know when or IF your car is being built without a VIN, What if FCA changed it so you got a build date, but it was 3-4,5 or even 6 months away. So at-least you KNEW your car was being built this year compared to being scared that your order might not make it through this production cycle.

    Would this make you happier or pissed off more that your car is 5-6 months away from being built.

    I won't answer on here, ill just vote later. I want to see everyones opinion.

    I have been waiting since July. It would be very nice to know I am going to get my car other then wondering if it will make it home. The problem I think would be that more people would cancel there orders if they knew it was still 6 months away.
    It would put peoples mind at ease!

    Not sure how to vote on this one
    It is winter here so I don't care if it does not show
    Up till summer time , but It would be nice to have a date
    But then I have seen proposed dates postponed
    And that causes all kinds of aggravation it's self
    Especially when it keeps getting changed
    Also the way work is here in alberta
    I'm hoping I still have a job to pay for it

    They can't accurately project production 3 weeks in advance. To think that they could assign a build date 6+ months in advance is wishful thinking in the extreme.

    Even if it is a SWAG (Scientific Wild Ass Guess) date I'd like to have some idea.

    Won't let me vote. I probably don't have enough posts yet, or something.

    Anyway.... I'd rather have a GUARANTEED Build date, than no info.

    Obviously that is impossible... as others have mentioned.

    A guess from SRT... then it not happening.... probably would piss me off more.

    Until people can predict the future, you'll never get a 'guaranteed' build date. There is no way to predict all of the variables from 3rd party suppliers that are required to actually build the car.

    I heard that brampton builder has been holding back his kisses that he gives to each car due to contract lapse, so thats why production dates all over the place

    Right. Which is why I said it was impossible. The current System does that via the status code of D1 (or E, depending on how you look at it)

    Now if the poll was about getting a VIN instead of Build date... then I'd vote the other way.
