Well, I'm one of the exceptions here. I ordered my REWB Jailbreak in the first week of December of '21. Long story short, I got sold a lie when the dealer told me they had an allocation. By May, no VIN yet, no movement on the build, so I canceled it. The dealership never updated the factory on the cancellation due to a change in management, and Dodge built the car anyway (it's in production now). So, if I take delivery in March, it'll have been a 15 month wait. But, I am one of the very lucky few who has gotten an unallocated car built. To make matters even better, they chose to build it the day before the '22 closeout occurred, so they made it a price guaranteed '23. Yay for that.
In the interim, thinking the REWB was a no-go and I wasn't going to pay '23 prices, I bought a C8. Worst car I've ever owned... 20 weeks stuck in maintenance at the dealership in 2022. Then Dodge says, "Hey we're building your car. Still want it?" Yes please. I'm going to eat it hard on this C8 given how I slightly overpaid for it and I'm not going to get anywhere close to it in trade. But, it's worth it to get rid of it because this car is a nightmare.
People ask how come I haven't tried to privately sell it... and I have. It's just that I'm kinda honest and when people ask to see the maintenance records, they get kind of pale when I hand them 60 pages of warranty receipts, diagnostic reports, trans replacements, engine work, electrical system repairs, and so on. So, I'm not going to be able to unload my C8 at the top of market price. I sent it to auction last week and it didn't meet my 85k reserve (hammered at 77k... local/regional auction, poor attendance). Jan/Feb is a poor time of year to try and sell a car. I know that. So, it looks like I'm going to have to trade it in. Worst car ever. Can't wait to get rid of it. Dealer has already evaluated it and they've offered 81k. So, that's the plan.
