Re: The Summit has landed!

So does anyone know the rhyme or reason on the production order? My coworker ordered an identical overland 4x4 black on black v6 in early feb and is taking delivery this weekend. I ordered an identical car about two weeks later and have been sitting in D status ever since. I see others who have ordered later than me went into D1 already. Mine is pretty basic so there's not a whole lot of parts to be waiting on. Some dealers claim that their orders are processed quicker, is there any truth to this that anyone knows about. It's my understanding that once it gets a VIN, that means it's been allocated to that dealer. I just can't figure out why they are not processed in the order received! Anyone have any info to stop me from going crazy.

I would suspect they do production runs.
Run of lerados.
run of limited
run of overlands
then the other side the correct side RHD-)

to avoid configuration on the production line.

If they done one of each it could get to confusing.
you mite get a RHD steering wheel in a LHD car. ha ha

Re: The Summit has landed!

Bobrock, I am with you!!! I am really getting antsy!!!! And a bit angry. Mine has been built for weeks and now has been sitting for over a week in the JS status. Do they not have enough chrome packages??? I just can't figure out the process here. Absolutely makes no sense. Can anyone shed any light on this confusing method???

As ridiculous as it sounds, they may have an issue or shortage of the chrome package since both of our orders seem to be in limbo after being built.

Re: The Summit has landed!

I think it has to be the Chrome Edition Group delays at this point. First, it apparently isn't installed during the factory build...so ships to body vendor to be installed, then has to sit there for them to be ready, then get installed and inspected, then back to the lot to be scheduled for railcar....adds probably 1 week minimum to maybe up to 4 weeks or so... Recommend to install those simple things post-delivery.... Just my observation.

Re: The Summit has landed!

Dan and JoBinotto, I think you guys maybe right. Now I do see where this morning they did another ramp compare inventory. Hopefully this means that they are getting it into the pipeline. I will keep you all posted. I am a littled pacified tonight but still antsy!
