Getting impatient.......

..........and have been since the day I ordered my C-TH. But my anxiety is getting worse.

It was built on 1/22 (a nice hump day build).
VOTS has shown it as "Final Inspection" status since 1/22
MOTS has shown it as "Pending Inspection" since 1/22 with no plant release.
MOTS shows it as "In Bay At Facility" since 1/23
.......and today is 1/30.

So what's happening?
Is it getting a top to bottom 7 day inspection?
Is there a problem?
Did it get lost in a parallel universe?

Help. Any information or insights appreciated!!!

Re: Getting impatient.......

Mine looks like I should have it in just over 7 weeks. That is fast compared to the last time I ordered from the factory. That was a '01 PT Cruiser. Took a year and 10 days.

Re: Getting impatient.......

I received the first e-mail that my Latitude was Scheduled for Production on Jan 10th. Nothing regarding the next two production stages of Frame and Paint then an e-mail that it was in Trim on Jan 31. Is this for real and does production continue to move this quickly? Doesn't seem like it from reading these posts. Maybe they're just messing with me.

Yes, production sequence is fast once started. My TH was in Final Inspection (I) for 10 days before plant release (KZ) for shipping. It should be perfect with all that inspection time. YMMV

Did you check your garage this morning, just in case the stork came late last night?

With mine marked for shipment, Every time I get gas I am going only $20 in just in case shipping etc. is fast! The trade in will be running on fumes on pick up day.

So glad we all are seeing movement!
