Tried to order a Trailblazer and told not accepting orders. The dealer explained the new dealer ‘port order’ process. Does anyone know, if they are going accept customers order some time in the future?

I wouldn't expect GM to drop the port order process on Trailblazers at least until the supply situation improves significantly. It's anyone's guess when supply constraints will truly be resolved, but all signs point to this situation lasting at least through the rest of the year.

It is about time GM got their act together before the start loosing customers permanently, and end up in bankruptcy again begging for another bailout. They have milked the supply chain issue long enough that if it was a real problem they should have come up with a solution by now. Hell if they can't supply finished cars due to the "Chip Shortage" it would seem that they should at least be able to supply body parts. I have been waiting many months now for a replacement hood to replace mine which was damaged a chunk of ice landed on it.

I ordered one back in January and currently waiting for GM to accept the order. I guess it's safe to say it's not going to be happening. Going to have to call the dealership in the morning, I'm glad I saw this!

I heard most american car companies are going to a new model of how to sell cars. I forget what it is called but is will be hard to get what you want down to the color of this or that. Something like you have to take what the make. I saw it online on how the sale model is changing.

the thing is this is NOT a GM problem only. All car dealers experience this problem, even foreign brands. For examle I just checked my Honda dealer. They have only 10 NEW vehicles in stock. FIVE of them are the HRV, 3 are trucks. On the other hand our local Toyota dealer has 56 new vehicles in stock. 56! Our local Chevrolet dealer had 31 new in stock, but 28 were trucks.

Well back in the "old days" you could order what you wanted so in a way that has been gone for a long time. I think once life gets back to normal ordering and availability will get back to normal.
