Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

First off, I want to start out by thanking all of the regulars in this thread. I started lurking these boards in July, knowing nothing of VOTS/MOTS, Control #s, Associate IDs...now I'm slightly knowledgeable. This thread gave me the MSRP and Invoice for each model and option a good day before my local dealer had pricing and allowed me to negotiate what appears to be a pretty good deal on a Rallye here in Georgia.

So today I see a post from gjeepguy a few threads down titled HyperBlack Wheels (Rallye and R/T). In the thread there are pictures of a Granite Crystal Rallye from Ed Voyles, which is the model Ed Voyles ordered for me. Since they've been tracking to a 9/13 delivery date for mine and the posted Rallye has an MSRP of $300 less (no second row console with storage), I figured this was an additional vehicle they ordered. I contacted my dealer and after some back and forth it turns out they made a mistake with the VINs and this is indeed the one ordered for me!

They told me that Dodge no longer offers the second row console on SXTs. Can anyone vouch for that? The first page in this thread still shows it as an available option.

I sure hope they didn't tell you this to cover a mistake they made when ordering for you. Someone more knowledgeable than I on this forum will likely clarify for you. Welcome, and good luck.....

Hmmm...did they actually make a mistake with the VINs, or are they trying to sell you what they have on the lot now?

You should have gotten a VIN as part of the ordering process assuming the vehicle was specifically ordered for you as opposed to a standard allotment for the dealer.

Those of us that ordered specific vehicles have been able to track them through the process using VOTs. The Limited I ordered a week ago already has the VIN assigned, and in VOTs I can confirm its the equipment we specified when we ordered.

If the console wasn't available on the SXT when you ordered they should have known that, or if it changed after the fact they should have let you know. You could PM Milous and ask him if he knows (in case he doesn't see this).

This happened to a couple of us that ordered Limiteds with the SSCG package where we wound up being required to add the optional, upgraded amp/speaker system.

I just did a build of this on Edmunds.com, and granted they may not be entirely up-to-date, but when I selected the console it forced me to select the 2nd row Captains chairs.

The site is up-to-date enough that when I selected the Rallye group it automatically switched the build to black cloth seats.

Me thinks the dealer is covering, but we need Milous or someone else with better insight to chime in and confirm.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

I sat a with the salesman and he worked up an order for the Rallye with the options I wanted. There was no deal in place and no deposit was left.

He sent me a VIN a few weeks later to track but I was unable to because my last name was not attached to the order. That VIN is the same VIN as this vehicle.

I'm kind of hoping the console is simply not available yet like the dvd system but this dealer has been on the up and up thus far.

Take a look at the window sticker on this one at a dealer in Nashville

The sticker says mini console and seat mounted armrests. That shouldn't be the upgraded console with the armrests. Man you guys are good at finding stuff! You had me hulking out for a minute there!

If it were me, I'd be asking the dealer for an explanation.

If you want the truck what will you accept in compensation for the missing option, or you make them locate one for you equipped the way you originally wanted.

Failing that, order one specific to you.
