I wanted to say goodbye and thank everyone for such an interesting and informative forum. I really have enjoyed reading everyone's input. After waiting since July 4th and finding out that the first car I had ordered was still in D status and the second one ordered August 24th was no better, I decided to cancel my order. I was looking forward to being a proud owner of a new caliber, but I really needed something to drive now, not 6 months from now. I decided on a 2004 GT Pontiac Vibe and got a pretty good deal on it. But it does have an upside, I'm taking the large difference in price and also buying a 1979 International Scout to replace my ailing Blazer. Best of luck to everyone who is waiting and to those who have already received their Caliber.
