I'm closing in on 40 days at this status and wondering what the issue is. I know people can wait for months based on different variables but It seems like if people have to wait, most people wait in D status for along time to get to D1. I thought once you hit D1 you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Well at 40 days I'm not seeing any light anymore. Vehicles ordered after mine already have estimated shipping dates, mine is listed as N/A. Any input would be great.
In a normal production cycle (read: not the start of a model year, not a new vehicle, not a new option, etc), you can expect D1 in 2 weeks or less. Things do happen and I wish there was text on VOTS to explain this but when new models launch, a new model year starts, or a new option starts up, delays can and will occur. Especially in the scheduling part AND the QA part. If you want to PM you VIN, I can take a look to see what may be the hold up (I defer tracking to Milous).
