I’ve got a factory order that was produced the week of 8/16/21. My dealer said the vehicle was in fact produced, gave me the VIN, but said it is sitting in Wentzville waiting on microchips.
I’m curious if anyone knows the extent of the factory shutdowns. Are they completely shuttered? Or are chips still being installed in previously ‘built-shy’ models as the chips arrive?
I know they had thousands of trucks sitting in lots this summer waiting for chips and eventually got them all shipped to dealers. Can anyone who just received a factory order from GM share what their timeline was and how long their vehicle sat at the factory, “Waiting for Chips”?

I placed an order with my car broker back on December 18th 2020 for the 2021 Suburban Lt luxury package and rear entertainment package. Everyone I speak to him it’s the car is sitting there waiting for the chips with no update. Does anybody no if all the older orders have been shipped and are trucks still sitting waiting on chips? It’s very frustrating not being able to get answers.

Yeah same issue here, I work for the dealer too… I ordered my 2021 Silverado 3500 High Country Dually back on April 25th as no one would DX one to us being the greedy people are. Mine due to constraints couldn’t go through until July and then became a 2022 model as they stopped producing the 2021. Mine was produced 8/9 and put on hold 8/20 and been waiting since. Really sucks and GM reps are not giving any information out other than its due to a semiconductor shortage. All eyes on Malaysia as that is where we get our chips and the more shutdowns they have the more screwed we are

Hi….the overabundance that occurs from people re-requesting and others for stock, will sell like hot cakes, as I would like to think. Bunches of people out there needing to purchase. Portage will undoubtedly factor these in to the season and what they ordinarily do creation astute and set them value insightful. To return to a typical deals schedule, is in all likelihood their objective dependent on realized parts supplies. People will hop on them since they realize that the 22’s will be more.

This is exactly what can happen when you source your parts from some Piss-Ant offshore country. The lesson here is to source your required parts right here in America. They may cost a bit more, but at least we won’t be held hostage by some Piss-Ant country.
Do you think GM will learn from this and start sourcing all parts here in America? I don’t! Nothing will be learned and this will happen again!

Hell no they won’t learn business as usual
