Well as some of you already know and some of you are about to find out, I have the ability to check orderstatus via the net. Before you ask it is a DCx employee site and you need a user name and pass to enter and I can't give it to you or I will lose my job. Out of the 15 peole that have pm'ed me so far i was able to give 13 of them info and they said it was more info then they had seen anywhere else, on the other hand if your order is recent, I may have no info at all. To see a preview of what I give look at post #106 here http://www.caliberforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=747&page=11. I assume I will get a lot more, and I don't mind checking, I also LOVE to get the thankyous, just do me a favor, I provide this service and only ask one thing, if you want to thank me before, after or both, find this thread and and a thankyou to it. Keeping this thread going will let newcomers know about it, and keep my PMs below limit :D , don't want to get the admin wondering how I fill up 4 times a week. Oh and one more thing (sorry I guess I'll ask for two things.) I need you all to use a wish of some sort (shooting star, when the time on the clock is all the same number ect...) one me finding a yellow SXT with a music gate before my Orange sxt comes in. It has to be within 100mi of my local dealer (yorkville, NY or boonville, NY) for me to get my employee discount.

I stare at that car on ebay at least 10min a day. Its the exact car I want. I am not picky. All I ask is to get yellow with a music gate, the car doesn't even have to have wheeles...

Thanks - Awesome job on getting back to me.

My car shows D1 status with a date scheduled. Does that date mean that is the date when it changed from D to D1 status or is that the date that DCX is actually scheduled to manufacture the car? in my case it said 6/14.

Thanks again Playboy42....AWESOME help.

According to the website, Burdick Dodge in Cicero has a Yellow SXT. It has gray seats with a few options (no MusicGate). Link is below. I know this is more than 100 Miles away, but in Fredonia (Farrell CJD), there is a Caliber SXT Sport in Solar Yellow.

You work at Carbone Dodge? Just curious if you really have a Red Caliber SXT Sport?

I wouldn't recommend buying a car from these people. That car has been on the lot
for a few weeks. Reason? They added an enviro package AND they wont sell the car
until they get another similarly equipped. Also, to get your name on the waiting list...
$500 deposit. Higher deposits go to the top of the list. Avoid at all costs.

Well the way I pull information, or a dealer would goes somthing like this...

A normal car takes 4-6 weeks to get to from order to someones dealership. Once the car starts to get built it gets issued a VIN, untill that point there is no info, and the car is still in the 4-6 week point. Now with the caliber it has been another story. People are looking at a 1 1\2 month wait for a VIN, which meants its 4-6 weeks from that point, so now you are talking a 3mo wait, (12-16 weeks). I have only been doing this for a week, and I have yet to see a car I am tracking get delivered, so I don't know how accurate the info I get is, but that is my take on it.

Thanks for taking the time to check this out for me. It is unfortunate that after nearly two months I still can't find out anything. Earlybird
