I placed an order early last week for an XC90 Momentum and have been following up with my dealer on status/when I would get a date. The below is his response on Dec 4th.

"not yet-
Should be next week-
The region is processing the end of the month

I will let you know as soon as I get the slot-
Your order is in line on the date you gave it to me.

Volvo gives the slots to dealers on a first order first slot basis.
There has not been any production slots given out to anyone in the last 3 weeks on the XC90 Momentum"

Just an FYI or up for discussion in case anybody is experiencing the same or something different

GrecianVolvo will hopefully chime in - but it sounds like your dealer has run out of Allocation and has to wait for the next month's availability to open up to get in an order.

There's not a similar or exact same model sitting on a lot already somewhere that you could just grab?

Thanks. He said he would look, but didn't expect to find what I wanted... T6, Momentum, heads-up display, convenience, vision, white body, black interior

I wouldn't expect the dealer to help much - unless he's got other Volvo dealerships under the same umbrella. Not in his interest to send you away.
Might be worth your time to take a look around and see what you find.. My dealer has an Inscription with basically what you want on the lot but Texas is probably a bit far away.

Thanks. I have no intention of getting it elsewhere... of all the dealers I worked with when price shopping, this one was the easiest, nicest and cheapest. Besides, already put down $1,000 anyway.

Mind sharing the dealer name?

That is probably what happened. Volvo does not give the slots to the retailers on a first order first slot basis; they have to EARN allocation slots and they have a set amount during each allocation.

Pauls Volvo
990 Goffle Road
Hawthorne NJ 07506

The name of the sales person I worked with is Chris Corrigan. If you speak to him, let him know I referred you.
Thanks for the info. I never dealt with Paul's Volvo, since they are too far from where I live.
I got mine from Prestige (this one) and previous one from Bridgewater.
Would not recommend Bridgewater as they did everything to drive away my repeat business.
With Prestige it was a breeze. Best price I got and very quick deal.

I'll keep Paul's in mind for my next one, just in case.

Thanks again.

Hi Grecian,

Any chance you can elaborate on the EARNing of the slots? Just curious how that happens.
Thank you.

Chris is a great guy but Paul's Volvo is a small dealer, they may not have the same number of allocations as a bigger dealership. Maybe they're having trouble getting the Momentums but I placed my order for an Inscription through them mid September and picked up my car early November!

No, I cannot. It is an internal process between the retailers and Volvo.

Mid-Sep to early Nov is a hell of a timeline!

Update from dealer:
"Just letting you know your order is locked in.
The delivery date is the end of Feb.-it may be the first week of March since they have to insatll the hitch at the port."
