As I understand it, dealers get quotas on how many cars they can order, and once those have been exceeded, they have to wait for openings due to cancellations or other dealers not using their quota.
So those who ordered early got their car in production within a couple of days, but those who order late from popular dealers may not get to see their car for a long time.
Yes, it sucks.
Sometimes, if they are willing, dealers can trade allocations. Mine did after I told him I already sold my other car and signed papers for the new one, after thinking I already had an allocation.
