Sounds like we are all in similar situations when it comes to ordering a Challenger. The build does seem to go quick. Everything else afterwards is up in the air.

My car was ordered 3/4 and is now in Toledo waiting on a full truck before it is delivered to Northern VA. This is the most puzzling aspect for me as I was expecting the car to be railed to the east coast and then trucked to the dealer. At this rate, I anticipate more delays as I believe the midwest is getting nailed by a blizzard. SMH...The saga continues!!!

Your car is most likely going by rail from Toledo Ohio to Jessup Md. and then by truck to northern Va. 4 days after leaving Toledo, mine was at the dealership.

Hopefully, I see it in four days. That would mean it arrives at the dealer on Friday! I wouldn't mind being lucky for once.

I’m still waiting for mine to get a build date once the Brampton plant reopens next week on Monday, April 15th. My Challenger Scat Pack Wide Body has been in D1 Status since April 3rd.

I spent 5 weeks in D and 2 weeks in D1 all while the plant was open. It's a long wait for sure!

How long ago was your Challenger in D and D1? When did this happen?

Ok so then my car will more than likely be built next week or the week after next week.

I think Brampton reps read these forums and delay the cars of the impatient whiners...

I'm pretty sure you're correct. :-)

I was rear ended the end of January totaling my car. As I was looking at cars I was down between a Challenger and an Audi SQ5, TTS, or TT/RS. I really liked the Challenger but nothing optioned the way I wanted it or in the color I wanted. As we left the lot I told my wife, and the salesperson that if only it was Sublime we'd be getting it. Dodge announced Sublime as an option the next day in a press release and I took it as providence. Placed my order as soon as they were open and have been waiting 'mostly' patiently since.

In the meantime we've been down a car so I'm borrowing one which is a hassle for all involved, and just whining a little looking forward to EXACTLY the car I want.
