It sounds like orders just came pouring in, and with the new allocation rules (each order counting against a future allocation), some dealers went WAY over. They have a lot of cars ordered - but no available allocation to "earn" them. .........
All my understanding as well.
And yes, I'm just about certain the "HOLD" and "Quality Control" issues are two completely separate beasts. My impression is "HOLD" is applied when an order is in queue for build but there are others further up in line than yours. All the "Quality Control" cars are sitting in port waiting on release to a truck when SoA does whatever it's gotta do to clear them.
