Production of the Enclave was supposed to start yesterday - April 2nd. Does anyone know it production actually started?

If so, what was the first vehicle off the line? CX or CXL? Color?

Don Willems posted the following on the saturnfans forum:

Without overtime we produce about 17520 units a month. But we worked both shifts last weekend, and are going to be working both shifts this weekend and second shift on the 19.

about 20% Outlook
about 50% Acaida
about 30% Enclave

Here's the link: http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=99355

Look at it this way. 30% of 17,520 is 5256 Enclaves a month. Divide that by 30 days and the plant could produce 175 a day (without overtime).

Using those numbers and not counting weekends, Buick might supply all 6000 dealer orders by the end of May. Even if it’s more like 100 a day, the advance dealer orders would only take until mid June.

Also, since there are around 2000 Buick dealers in the US, each dealer should have one or two in stock shortly. Just Google “Enclave inventory VIN” and you’ll see them all around the county.

I’m not too sure about demand at this point. The news flash at the top mentioned 52 sold in April when probably 1500 were made. There will be another few thousand coming in May so I doubt you’ll have a hard time finding them.

I’ve test driven three CXL’s in the DC area. One salesman just tossed me the keys and said “see you when you get back”! I was thrilled.

Enclave happiness is only a few days away!
