Well I went and tried to order my Rebel yesterday, but refused to pay the just because dealer mark up game. They wouldn't honor the correct price so I walked out. (i hate car dealerships!) I contacted other dealers in the area and two of them at least came out and said the also would not honor the price, but at least they were up front about it. Another said they would be happy to place my order! GREAT!
I went in a talked to them and it turns out that Rebel ordering is suspended/disabled now. They said that no one could order a Rebel until the tool unlocks. They can make the build sheet and provide the info but unless the order is placed its really worthless as any of the options or prices could be changed before it unlocks again. From what they said people who think they have an order placed and have a build sheet (invoice sheet) really cant yet, so the dealership is just taking/holding onto the deposit until they can place the order. Guess I have to wait a little bit longer for them to call me when the orders open =(
At least they were up front about it and wouldn't take my deposit until the ordering opens. I will give them that. Really wish we could just order from Ram and say deliver it to this dealership.
On the plus side most of the dealerships in the area are getting or have received their 2015 Rebels and have/had them on the lots. Hopefully we can start seeing them in the wild now.
