Now that it would seem that the dealer demos and first allotment cars are either on their way or about to be shipped, has anyone who has a car scheduled to arrive with the second allotment group heard anything? It seems illogical to think that FIAT doesn't have a production schedule, but they are not sharing this information with us or apparently with the Studios. Given the production capability of the factory in Toluca (I heard anywhere from 60,000-100,000 cars/year), they theoretically have the capacity to knock these cars out extremely rapidly!

I was told by my Studio that I should know more about my order on April 10th. I'd bet 2nd allotment starts Monday April 9. Just a guess.

they are now producing demos for the dealerships in Canada, however we only have 69 dealers.

I'm the first on the 2nd allocation at my dealer too, he has been telling me early April for a while now. I expect the order to go in this week. I hope... I'll let you know as soon as i hear.

Much thanks to all that replied. I guess we're all in the same boat - at the mercy of the powers to be. Hopefully things will happen this week and then we'll play the waiting game, but this time with the added satisfaction in knowing that things are at least progressing in a positive way. When we finally have our Abarth's we'll be able to look back at this as another life experience- but for now it's agony! Let's continue to keep each other posted as it at least provides some degree of comfort.

I'm in the second allotment as well, and I just contacted the GM at my studio and kinda didn't get a straight answer. This tells me that they don't even know. He said that until ALL first allocation cars are physically on the train, they should know more. I was under the impression that they all already were from everything I've seen/read.

ALSO, he said that ETA's of shipped Abarths can change several times. I know some people in my area are seeing April 20-22 arrival, but GM told me April 30th is what's on his docket.

I guess I'm just as confused as some of you....if the first allotment is on the train....why hasn't the second be at least entered into the system? My VON # still not coming up with any info on Fiat or Chrysler.com. Are you guys at least getting info?

I just returned home to a message from my dealer, State Line Fiat in South Carolina, stating that they received word from Fiat that production on the Abarth has been "stepped up" and to call if I'm still interested in ordering. Will contact him tomorrow and find out what "stepped up production" means. Will be glad to share if I find out anything.

I'm hoping this is true across the board. I'm still seeing the VOTS screen not recognizing my VON. As usual, I will keep trying. You betcha I'll be jumping up and down if it actually brings something back!

Not sure if this means I'm at the end of the first allotment or the beginning of the second, but this morning I finally received my order confirmation email from Fiat. I've had my VON from the studio for a few weeks, but nothing would come up in the VOTS site prior to today. As of this morning VOTS is now showing my ABARTH as in production.

So you got an email from Fiat, not the studio where you placed the order?

I also got my email from Fiat today. This is the first time I got any kind of confirmation of my order at all, and I placed my order over a month ago! Glad to finally see some real proof of my order since my dealer was very stingy on giving me any information.
Email just said this is the first of 3 emails. The second should be the numbers I need to track the progress online and the third is when the car is shipped (To my understanding).

Correct. I've had my VON from the studio for a number of weeks but nothing from Fiat directly. The studio has been great to work with and they're trying to get information to me as they have it but it's not always forthcoming from Fiat. The studio said there would be emails, but we didn't know when they'd start. Just received my second this morning noting that the car is moving into production.

I wonder if it would be wise to place more than one deposit to see who would full fill the order first. I know some people are still waiting to hear when their car will go into production yet I'm seeing these people ordered really early. A dealership in LA called me today saying they got 9 spots available for their next allocation with delivery to be in May. @____@ Uggghhh.... should I just put a deposit there as well and see what happens.

It looks like some of us in the second group have received some form of notification either from Jonathan (progression from BG to BX) while others have received emails from Fiat indicating even further movement to stage D. Hopefully things will start to move next week for everyone. I suspect that they'll do a massive shipment (? end of May) as they did for the first group cars and hopefully we'll all see our cars sometime in June - just a guess based on past performance (at least let's hope so!!!!).

I just checked VOTS and mine moved to "Frame" after being in D1 "Production Scheduled" since 4/13. Nice to finally see more movement. Though, Insight still shows it in D1. Its still supposed to be loaded on the railcar 4/25. We'll see how accurate that is very soon.

I keep checking the FIAT tracking system and get 'could not locate the information with provided details'.

I was told my car would be built during the 'second round' since I was #14 on my dealers list (Westbury Fiat) and Fiat picked up the first 11 to build during the first round. Fiat accepted my order but its just sitting there in BX status.

SPQR
04-24-2012, 11:30 AM
Same for me - still BX. Even though they told me I was in the second allotment, I found out on Friday that I was not. I'm guessing that if we haven't received some form of notification that the car has progressed to stage D, than we are not in the second allotment. I'm just hoping that I'll make it into the third - there are still 2 other people ahead of me for the third group. From what I have seen, they gave less cars to my studio in the second allotment compared to the first. I'm not a happy camper!!!

Only the manufacturer would be able to answer this for sure. For the most part, this snippet of text applies to most of the cars produced today:

This is from a Chrysler board:

As I understand it, for most manufacturers, VIN plates are created and then sent to assembly in batches. This batch may be installed in sequential order or it may not. Sometimes it's reverse of how they are printed. Knowing the batch size will give a relative idea of when your car was produced but it won't guarantee that it rolled off the line before or after a car from the same batch. The VIN plaque is added very early on in the assembly phase so each chassis can be identified throughout assembly. There are many ways for VINs to get out of order.

There are threads in the R/T forum where owners have contacted DC to find out what "number" their R/T is. DC's answer has always been that it's impossible to tell as the VIN does not designate build order.

If you can find info otherwise I'd love to see it (would like to know the "number" of my own R/T). But this is what I've run into VIN wise with many manufacturers...

just to give you guys idea of what the time frame is at each stage.

My order went in from my dealer on 3/7 with everyone, (i'm not the first and there are probably more than 15people preordered at my dealer)
I don't know if i'm in the "second allotment" but i first got email from fiat on 4/13 saying order received, and on 4/16, it got the email saying it's "scheduled for production"and i can check on vots with last 8 vin

on vots, it was stuck there till yesterday 4/23 and it was at the 'paint" stage, and today, vots says it's on the shipping stage.

on "insight" you can get the link from other post on this forum, and copy paste the link but replace the full VIN. with the last 8 VIN, you will know the full VIN except for one character which you can guess by trying all combination (0-9 and A-Z). This method didn't work at all on 4/16, 17, and 18, but it worked when I tried again on 4/23.

right now, my car is at "vehical built J", with future estimate:
4/28 load on rail
5/13 unload from rail (benecia, CA) norcal
5/21 deliverd to dealer (berkeley)

I placed my order 3/7 with everyone and was told I would be in the second allotment. I also got my first email from Fiat 4/13 saying order received. Then on 4/15 I got a call from my Studio with the VON/VIN numbers. I still haven't gotten a second email from Fiat and my car is still "Production Scheduled" status D1.

Insight shows:
loaded on rail 5/10
unloaded from rail (Mira Loma, CA) 5/25
there is still no delivered to dealer date.

Mine just moved to "Built Pending Inspection" today. VOTS still has it in "Paint". Insight doesn't have an estimated dealer delivery, but the "Unloaded from Railcar" changed from 5/9 to 5/10 today. Hope to have it by 5/19. Would love to drive it all that weekend.

Well, they seemed to be real busy with my car yesterday. It went from "Built Pending Inspection (I)" to "Vehicle Built (J)" to "Ship To Storage (JS)" and now is "Adv Ship Notice to Dest Ramp" whatever that means. Supposed be loaded on the choo choo on 4/29 and unload at the distribution center on 5/10. VOTS still shows it in Paint. Though VOTS seems to update late in the morning so I'm anxious to see if it catches up with Insight today. EDIT: VOTS just changed to "Final Inspection".

Here's the latest progress:

When did you guys place your orders in the dealership and recieve your VON? I'm trying to get an idea of how long it will be before I see any progress or see my car on the tracking website. I placed my order last Thursday (4/26) and immediately got a VON, I was also told my order was basically ready to go (I forgot exactly how they phrased it)

D1 here as well since this morning. I placed my order on the 24th of March. Didn't get a VON until the next week. So roughly a month till I got my VIN (give or take a week). :)

04-30-2012, 12:06 PM
i placed my order at the studio 4-9.
got a VON 4-10.
VOTS showed vehicle scheduled for production 4-13.
got a VIN from fellow board member "FiatCares (aka Jonathan)" and he told me it was scheduled to be built the week of 5-14.
got VIN from Fiat (official email)
went D1 (scheduled for build) today 4-30 (according to INSIGHT page)

i think i JUST got in under the second allotment.
some people have been waiting LOTS longer than i have for information to update.
hopefully my luck keeps continuing and my car gets here even faster!

FiatCares has checked the status a couple of times and it still seems to be on schedule (trying really hard not to bug him everyday asking for updates). I hope this all at least stays the same. Would really like to have my car by Memorial Day Weekend.

What is the "insight" website?

When you get your VIN, you just need to replace the VIN in the link (3C3CFFFH6CT310578) with yours.

I never got a trim status update. Mine skipped that step entirely and went from Paint to final inspection. And I know I did not miss it either cuz I was refreshing 20 times a day at least LOL

funny thing with VOTS is that mine went from D1 Production Scheduled and then just skipped to TRIM.
who knows what to believe?!
i am just happy something is happening and things are moving along.

LOL. Me thinks they have some lazy data entry employees. Hopefully they are instead focusing on assembling the car the best they can rather than worrying about updating the system ;)

according to VOTS, dealer was supposed to take delivery on the 12th.
today is the 13th and i just got a call from the studio saying that the truck broke down with my car on it!
he says it will most likely land sometime tomorrow morning.
the 2 month wait was nothing compared to these last 2 days!!!
i want it already!

how the heck don't you have your car yet?? I've had mine for a week already, and i'm way up in Minnesota. They were together in Texas... Anyways it worth the wait, i have over 800 miles on it already. The car is fantastic. No issues with it at all. Dealer even gave me a couple free t shirts. :)
