Ordered an Enclave on 5/21/2007. Got a call from the dealer that it arrived on 6/13/2007... I haven't had a chance to go and pick it up but I was told to expect this vehicle in mid-July. Did they perhaps just give me a vehicle that had already been ordered by another dealer for their allocation? I am in Detroit so I'm not too far from the factory but 3 weeks seems awfully quick.

That's it. We wanted the power inverter but weren't willing to pay for the entire package.

The 110v power inverter (basically an AC power outlet) is part of the Luxury Package and not available otherwise. So if you want this option and get an Acadia, it costs $175 MSRP. If you want it on the Enclave, it's a ~$950 MSRP option with the Luxury Package Gotta love that GM marketing group!

You must be living right! My order is 56 days old and still not scheduled for production yet. Congratulations. Give us a report.

I haven't picked it up yet... still waiting for 30 days to pass since I became a Farm Bureau member. I don't want to walk away from a $455 savings ($500 off the vehicle less the $45 membership fee to Farm Bureau)... you have to a be a member for at least 30 days. I have about a week left. http://www.michiganfarmbureau.com/benefits/gm.php

My concern is that they would sell the vehicle to someone else. However, it was the dealership itself who mentioned the offer and told me not to expect the vehicle to mid-July. I immediately sent in my Farm Bureau application to make sure I'd have the 30 days covered by the time the vehicle arrived. By the way, it turns out Farm Bureau has decent insurance rates too.

Does anyone know if GM is offering lease loyalty for the Enclave? It's worth $1000 but wasn't in effect when I ordered, the saleperson was supposed to call me back and let me know but never did. It looks like the terms changed and it now includes 'select' 2008 models, whatever that means. Before it only say 2006/2007 models. http://www.gm.com/vc/lease07/index.jsp#tc

I'm going to call the dealer today (Tuesday) and see what they can do. The thing is if they are offering the lease loyalty, they'll waive two months of payments. I have 2 payments left... one coming due on the 29th. Plus I am 100 miles short of my alottment... so I may lose the Farm Bureau discount but I save a lease payment and mileage charges... probably the way to go.

Of course I had to figure this out, the salesman never got back to me. Can they sell a vehicle that I have a deposit on???

I would be surprised if a dealer minded having a sold vehicle in the showroom a week.

**** I would think he'd be glad to have to opportunity to have it for others to see.

Let us know how it works out for you.

April 9!! I ordered on 4/23 and I'm getting po'd more and more each passing day. Especially after reading about others that orderd much later and they are driving theirs. You must be going crazy as it becomes a quest just to get yours. Mine is still at code 1100. My dealer has no answers. I even e-mailed Buick a couple of days ago and have yet to get a reply. All the excitement of getting a new vehicle is gone for me.
