I just got a call from the dealer whom I have been trying to get the Carbon flash. He said that his Carbon Flash order will not be able to produce as expected (early July) due to production halt at the factory for some major issue related with the Enclave, so instead of doing recalls later, the factory stopped the production until it has been fixed (I can't believe that) and that his Carbon Flash won't be available until mid to end of August!!!

Meanwhile he offered me an '08 Acaida similarly equipped as the Enclave with the status code of 3000, so I said how could it be possible when both of them share the same components under the shell, especially when it is as big as this one where they are stopping the production. He of course didnt have the answer.

Being how I am [do not trust anyone especially the car dealers (sorry good ones I know you are out there in minority)] I think he got a better deal with another buyer who was offering more than I negotiated.

Has anyone else heard of such rumor?

somehow coop this sounds like :bs: . did you not put a down payment on your vehicle? and how the **** did he have the nerve to offer you a darn acadia vs the enclave. these dealers have quickly figured that this is a :hot: car and they can get more for them that what people are paying. call buick yourself and find out if this is true and if it is not then you do have the right to file a complaint against the dealer and the dealership. dag gone shame. slick-tricky-dicks, some dealers just suck and that is the majority (the good ones are definitly in the minority). again, i say give buick a call and they can definitly tell you if the production has stopped and for what reason.

if you put down a deposit then that is your car and it cannot be intercepted.

Well we had been exchanging emails for past couple of days and today I sent one to schedule a time so I can complete the paper work and put down a deposit, that is when he called back.

I will be calling Buick regarding this..beside I can have other Dealers check the status on that Carbon Flash, a dealer can access other dealers order status.

yes, that is correct and that other dealer can also intercept it for you if the dealer you have been dealing w/is lying. you give them the deposit and they will redirect the car for you.

Any idea what the issue is that is holding up production?
Yeah, usual car salesman tactics!! I have called several dealerships since then and a few have contacted Buick dealer relationship hotline as well, so far no such news.

I think the dealer sold the car to another party, and didn't want to loose my business. He should have told me the fact that, another interested party came and bought the vehicle since I wasn't ready. I would have been fine, I would have done the samething if I was selling it.
