UPDATE: my order status is at number 3000. YAY! :)
Mine is in the chain, so to speak. It is scheduled to be built in mid December. Hedrick's Chevrolet said I probably would get delivery in January. I am assuming L.A., San Francisco, and Lyft owners will get theirs before me, but that is fine, I wanted the tax credit, etc. to happen in 2017 anyway. Hedrick's received nine allocations in this first go around, which is pretty good for our area, I guess, They were only getting about one Volt per month in 2011. So, progress is happening in the Electric car world, even if a little slowly/gradually.

Your thread title is misleading. At first I thought you had an order that was yanked/cancelled by Chevy. Perhaps a mod can step in and fix it.

3300 or bust. Pretty much everything is up in the air before then. 3300 gets you a date with the assy line. As I well know, a car can sit at 1100 or 2000 for months.

1100, Preliminary order accepted
2000, Order accepted by GM
2030, Order re-edited (if necessary)
2051, Order changed thru Web
2500, Order preferenced
3000, Order accepted by production control
3100, Order available to sequence
3300, Order scheduled for production
3400, Order broadcast
3800, Order produced
4000, Available to ship
4104, Bailment Invoice
4200, Shipped
4300, Intermediate Delivery
4B00, Bayed
5000, Delivered to the dealer
6000, Delivered to the customer

"Pulled" is dealerspeak for Chevrolet accepted the allocation for production and put it in the process for manufacturing. I didn't bother to get any other details from the dealer like I pestered them about six years ago. I am being a little less anxiety ridden than the last time. :)

If you give you order number to chevy chat they MAY be able to give you a code, all without bugging your dealer...They used to have tons of info but I think it was October of 2015 Chevy seemed to reduce the info they had with a lot of us getting weekly status update to "no info, see your dealer"

Honestly, I don't get the whole "bugging the dealer" anyway. If they say it will be there in January, then act "surprised" if it is there in December and if you don't hear something by January, make a call or two.

I know that expectant car orders can be "exciting" as we see with hundreds and thousands of Tesla buyers constantly bugging their Delivery Specialist with "where's my car" questions. But why not let it quietly occur and pick it up in January when it's due?

Tesla is looking at "autonomous showrooms" and what I get from that is cutting-expenses with all their extra people hand-holding buyers along the way. I mean basically - you can order and receive a car without ever talking to a person (realistically, this is what some people want, in fact). When Model 3 is out, I doubt Tesla could ever do the Delivery Specialist role to the extent of vehicles per day that they could deliver from their limited count sales locations. I think they should offer add-on option pricing for "DS involvement" of $300/order.
