He did explain some. Chrysler Australia does NOT send your specific order to the US factory. They order a number of cars in different specs/colours based on their own beliefs of what the customers want.
In other words: An order is just a lottery ticket for next time they coincidentally have what you ordered available.
The reason for delays to Australian deliveries is because the factory has pushed out production of right hand drive models, he said. He assured me that there is no truth to rumours of Quadra Lift not being available until the end of next year.
Laredo 3.6 Whitegold w/QL ordered 6th Feb.
I also have been talking to Chrysler Australia and contradict some of your information.
1 they do do specific orders, I have my VON and waiting for it to go into production.
2 Milous has confirmed the RHD are not done in production runs but are mixed in with the LHD builds.
Read the entire thread Milous did list the production of GC going to Oz and ones that were in production.
I think the first shipment is full of GC ordered by Chrysler Oz huridly ordered after they were found to be so popular.
Then they tried to put customer orders in amongst these and ballsed it all up.
That's what I think has happened.
Now they need to off load all these GC that are not customer orders but don't meet the specs of customer orders.
Make any sense
Ordered WK2 Overland, Mineral Grey (was Blackberry) Hopefully. 18th March 2011
