Announcement RE: delays tomorrow

Per my dealer (Paddock in NY) who is on some type of dealer board, that after much pushing and convincing, GM is finally going to make an announcement tomorrow explaining the delays. That's all I know for now. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: It has to do with the battery cable. Anyone who's had a delivery is to be given a loaner car and have their car flatbeded to their dealership, then the dealerships should have parts to fix them by the 11th.

It's HERE and I'm LOVING IT!

If you dealer set any expectation beyond having the car before end of third quarter 09 then the dealer has a problem. While I'm annoyed I'm still at 1100, I knew it was likely to be quite a wait since there were around 14,000 of us who pre-ordered.

my local dealer called me today and said their 1st one will be in tomorrow morning...........Black 6-banger, I'm going to stop after work and look at it, wonder what they'll offer trade on an '09 Caddy?

JUST KIDDING, who wants a 6 cylinder, besides the wife would kill me.

wouldn't count on it.

i read somewhere that the positive battery cable running to the battery in back is rubbing against the starter housing. this is causing the positive cable to ground out. rumor has it there have been 2 fires.........not sure that any of it is true. as of now it hasn't been confirmed.
