Re: Any saddle interiors out there ?

New vehicle roll-outs are filled with anticipation, suspense, disappointment, jubilation, and a laundry list of emotions. I think some folks would be better off to buy a new car from dealer inventory...than to order a first-year model with yet-to-be-seen, late-availability options...and a tight time line requirement.

This is the third time I bought a new roll-out vehilce...its always the same....there's lots of unforeseen issues to slow things down. I'm just saying.

(But if MINE isn't on time......grrrrrr! )

I would if I could, but they don't have what I want on dealer lots. There are a million Laredos out there though.... How many months, from the time ordering opens, is a reasonable wait in your mind for a vehicle built in our own boarders? I waited less time for a limited production vehicle to be built and cross the ocean than I'm waiting for a standard production vehicle built right here in America. With a new model year every 12 months, waiting more than 3 months, if that happens, for an order seems ridiculous....

Re: Any saddle interiors out there ?

actually your wait starts from the day that saddle with the tech pack goes into production. I believe that was Nov 16th. IMO...you have only been waiting for 5 days. IMO....you ordered on Sept 18th...but knew the saddle and tech package would be/could be delayed until Nov/dec.

Re: Any saddle interiors out there ?

Yeah, well.......(1) mineral gray (2) Saddle....and (3) Tech package were all late availability items....and none were available when your order was placed. (mine either for that matter....but I only had one late availability item ;....and I'm not in the same bind as you.)

Been around industrial production all my life....and new things don't always go as planned. Just saying.

Let's hope you get some good news in a day or three.

Dealer never said that. They said ordering opened 9/16. Only after I ordered and discovered this forum did I learned that production was mid-November. The dealer told me I would have the Jeep by now. Chrysler has to be responsible for its dealers and the people they train. Nice try though....

^^agreed. It is pathetic how little most dealers know about the WK2 and the manufacturing process. I actually had a dealer tell me that it would take three weeks to get an overland with the saddle interior. He also told me that I would get the 730 nav if I ordered now.

really bro...I could care less. I am just another Jeep owner trying to add insight from what I know. Youve been a member here for awhile...so you have known that the saddle and tech packs are late availability.(Nov/dec)

Re: Any saddle interiors out there ?

Can we call this a push? Technically those late availability options were supposed to start production Oct 1 (I know for a fact Mineral Gray was, not sure on Saddle and tech package), and then once Oct hit it got pushed to Nov. So I'm sure rdalcanto was expecting production to start on time based on info he was given.

I think manufacturing vehicles is probably a lot tougher than any of us realize and you have to expect delays especially with items not even being manufactured yet.

But there are those that ordered back in July and everything has been built but no delivery. I can't even try to explain that at all, and that just sucks for those jg members.

Re: Any saddle interiors out there ?

It's all good. I don't have a beef with any of the members here. This forum is awesome thanks to people like Scottina. If I get my Jeep around 12/12, I'll be happy. What has me worried, is that there are two divergent streams of information. When I call Jeep customer service, they tell me the info that Milous has, which is my jeep will be built by 11/30. But I also saw the screen my dealer uses on dealerconnect to track his orders, and my status, like that of others on this forum, seems to have gone backwards from D1 back to D a few days ago. If my delivery gets pushed into 2011, then I will be very unhappy.... The only good thing about a January build, is that they will have finally used up all the faulty axle isolators they know about, and will be building with the new batch. Can you imagine if I did that in surgery? I'm sorry Mrs. M, we know that the screws I'm about to use to hold your spine together might break, but we have a bunch left over, and can't start using the good ones until these are all gone....

I feel your pain... the waiting was awful. Production typically falls roughly 2 months after the order date opens. I ordered on 7/15, when the 430N became standard on Limiteds. However, that 7/15 order date was for September production. And I got my vehicle in September.

Ordering opening 9/16 was for November production. Your vehicle should be built this month. Will it? No idea. And the dealer doesn't know either. They can check the current status, but that's about it. Some things are just not in the dealer's control... and when your vehicle gets built is one of them. Dealers definitely need to do a better job when it comes to "promising" delivery dates for customer ordered vehicles. They can certainly make educated guesses, but there's never a guarantee.

I get it... you're frustrated. But "Chrysler has to be responsible for its dealers?" Come on now. This is not a Chrysler-specific issue. It's an issue with all manufacturers. Dealers can't guarantee when a custom-ordered vehicle will show up. They just can't.

Your vehicle will get built... you just have to decide if you're willing to wait for it. And it's definitely worth the wait.
