Glad to hear I 'm not the only one. We ordered the last week of M :banghead:ay and still at 1100. I'm supposed to call later this week to see if there has been any change. I'm curious now if I should cancel my order and try buying one off the lot. There are 3 Enclaves within 3-4 hrs driving distance with the exact same specifications I ordered (White Diamond with cashmere loaded with everything except the cargo net and cover, incidently I have no idea why I didn't order that too since it was only 90 bucks more). Anyhow I never realized how increadibly awful it is to have to wait for a car to be built on order. I consider myself a patient person but I guess that goes out the window when you have Enclave fever as bad as I do. Also it doesn't help when everyone at work is asking if I have gotten it yet because they all want to see it. I know I just need to have a beer! :beer:

Today, I called my dealer for an order (with PCK) update & like others around this land was sung the same song as last time I tried two weeks ago. No idea when to expect. Can't even give me a status code. Today was the end of the 8 week promised wait peroid for my vehicle (5/29 order).

My dealer has told me that eliminating the lux package from my order would likely increase the notion of them pulling my order for production & hopefully speed things up although he could not guarantee this. He had a customer three weeks ago do the same thing & his vehicle is being shipped now.

Anxiety of a financing check expiration date looming (8/21) & all this crap for $925.00 on a 40K vehicle. Had them take out the PCK. Not worth it if you have to be held hostage for eight plus weeks & no info. Will take my chances on thsi new approach.

Perhaps other frustrated souls in this forum should consider this, too. Get rid of the PCK from your orders.

Klaatu

I like your name and the meaning is not lost on me. However it is ironic as we see GM moving so slow that is seems it is "The day GM stood still"

The phrase "Klaatu barada nikto" originates from the 1951 Cold-War-era science fiction film The Day the Earth Stood Still. The phrase "Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!" was used to stop Gort, the robot in the film, from destroying the Earth.

There is no known translation for the phrase, although "Klaatu" is the name of the humanoid alien protagonist in the film, and "nikto" is Russian for "nobody / no one."

Haha we did that book in English Class last year. We read the book and turned it into a scene of a movie, which our class filmed. Best English project (and idea) EVER! :cheers: The whole school was jealous cause while they were all doing essays and book reports we were running around the halls with video cameras! Good times...

We ordered 6/11 and have been sitting at status 1100 for the last 5 weeks. I almost went ahead with the financing based on the tired "6-8 weeks" line that most dealers have been giving out, but decided to hold off until I hear that it's acutally in production. Don't know about your finance company but our company will hold the deal for 6 weeks from approval.

I don't know. If this is a "LUXURY" CUV why are we having to delete the luxury package? :confused: I'm keeping mine in, of course my dealer told me they had one allocation for luxury package at the time I ordered. Although I WANT IT NOW, I don't have to have it now so I guess I am okay waiting. Besides I really want the articulating headlights and a couple other things in that package. I DO think GM needs to wake up and get going on the production of this car or the whole thing could just backfire on "the most luxurious crossover, ever" :sosad:[/color]

The latest information that I got about the luxury package is that the item causing the issues was the telescopic steering column but now it is because of the Articulating Headlights. Go figure... they get one part in and another becomes rare.

Hmm, I wonder why some are hearing this yet, there is nothing out to the dealers as to any issues with the Luxury package. My dealer just checked their internal messaging system and the only thing posted is that they will be increasing production in September and that the White Diamond Paint is still limited (as of 8/10). He is showing nothing to the dealers from GM, nor is my ordered flagged with a limit on the Luxury Pkg. He said that if a part is holding up an order that it is shown as a line item with the noted part.

Strange. Goes back to leaving the customer in the dark to wonder....
