I contacted Dodge customer service, and they are indeed blaming Allied as Col suggested:

"Allied, one of Chrysler's finished vehicle hauling suppliers, made the
decision to stop servicing us as well as other OEM's. We have re-sourced
the business to other suppliers and are working to ensure a smooth
transition. Vehicles continue to be shipped to dealers and we do not
anticipate any disruptions in production as a result of this change."

Does Allied provide rail car transport, or only loading/unloading/truck transport?

Hey Mike.
You have got the information spot on. It's about time they owned up to the real problem. The smaller company's are really strugling to keep up with production numbers & therefore there is still a backlog.
Allied only provides Loading/Unloading/Truck transport.

Feel sorry for all who have had to go through all this b.s.
I was told minimum six weeks and not to get upset if it took eight to ten.
Too my surprise and everyone else at the dealership mine showed up within four weeks and took delivery yesterday. Came up through Texas and then out west to Benecia California. Very glad I waited to get the color and options I wanted.

Wow, lucky guy! Is your truck a regular cab? If so do you mind sharing the last six digits of your VIN? Mine is 597011 and it has been 8 weeks and mine is still sitting in Mexico waiting for transport.

Wow, this doesn't make any sense if the VINs are sequential. Mine was built before yours and you already have your truck in CA and mine hasn't moved.

as of MARCH 25th 2011

A incident has grown in in between Allied trucking as well as automakers General Motors as well as Chrysler which has run-down to a indicate of hostage-taking. The Detroit News reports which GM has filed a legal case opposite a car-hauling association which alleges it’s land 1,700 of a automaker’s profitable Chevy Silverado as well as Camaro models which should be upon their approach to dealers. The vehicles in subject have been worth $ 47 million, as well as most of them have been reportedly already paid for as well as paid for by customers. The fit additionally claims which a register will decrease in worth if dealers do not embrace a vehicles, whilst during a same time dissatisfying customers.

The problems in in between Allied, GM as well as Chrysler proposed when a automobile hauler asked for a 15-percent raise. Allied had formerly attempted to cut a compensate of Teamster kinship members by twenty percent, though was incompetent to do so due to a sustenance in a company’s work contract. GM afterwards cut off ties with Allied upon March 16.

One day after GM filed fit opposite Allied, Chrysler filed a own legal case in Ontario Superior Court. Team Pentastar claims Allied has 700 of a vehicles during Allied locations. The justice has already postulated Chrysler a right to redeem 200 of those vehicles. Chrysler has resourced a automobile hauling to alternative automobile hauling companies as a outcome of a dispute.

Hold off a bit longer friends, you will get your vehicles, maybe get some free extras for waiting, oil changes, spray in bed liners, rubber floor mats, etc

GTyankee. Don't believe everything you read on the internet about the situation with Allied,GM & Chrysler. We are not the bad guy's here.
