    Well finally got my window sticker and moved to in production, had my blend date I think on the window sticker as 3/22 but build date is the 29th... wat exactly is a “blend date”? Searched other forum page and wasn’t clear to me B359D5E1-A5A3-4088-B8F5-D6AB636502D0.jpeg

    The "blend date" is the date the car was originally scheduled to come off the production line when the car was first queued for production, approximately 8 weeks before the nominal blend date. The unexpected parts shortage has pushed the schedule back for many cars, so an original blend date of 3/22 with a new production date of 3/29 is not surprising.

    Your car takes 3 to 4 days to run down the production line, so it will go "Into Production" several days before the official production date.

    EDIT: Nope. I looked at your sticker after my prior post. Your blend date of 3/29 is shown at the top center of the sticker, right above the word "blend".

    They may make that date, but only is things go as plan. In production means they are starting to designate assembled parts for your car. As the chassis begins it’s journey down the final assembly line, and the completed engine, transmission, front end, grille, etc. are blended with the chassis. That is what they mean by blend date
