But isn't an allocation different than the reservations? I thought the reservations are what customers are going to receive and allocations are separate inventory the dealers will receive to sell off the lot. Can someone clarify?One thing that concerns me is the fact they don't know how many allocations they may get??? A reservation might end in nothing?? Disappointing that they don't think there will be rebates or special financing- great time for zero financing promo.
I was thinking that if a dealer gets little or no inventory allocated, they are probably going to be more inclined to adopt a take-it-or-leave-it stance when negotiating with customers who have reservations. Dealers will want to boost their allocations by holding on to pre-ordered vehicles customers walked away from.
