see the tracking your volt order thread in this fourm.
to sumerize, the first step is to find a dealer with a open allocation with a to be delivered by date that is acceptable to you, this is not currently easy (other than getting very lucky and finding a dealer with a cancled order that he is willing to sell at MSRP), but it is the way to get a order number.
The best way I know to find such a dealer, is to serach for Chevy dealers by your location and contact them through their web sites and ask for the above information. The dealer I found in Pinconning has just recieved another allocation, but I have not asked for the expect delivery date on that allocation. Other dealers may be recieving more allocations as well, all of these new allocations wi be for 2012 volts as the allocations for 2011 volts seem to be all taken.
Thanks. At $50k, the price is very steep! Just wondering why our order has not been placed into the Chevy system like everyone else with a tracking number to know what is going on?
I had to look north in Michigan to find a dealer with an allocation that I could order a 2011 volt from. The dealer I found is in Pinconning.
There is one on the lot, fully equiped for Just under $50K at Tennession Chevy in (Livonia?).
