Do you have a VON or order number? it starts with an E.
If so become a paid member and Milous will get you your VIN and build tracking.
If not harass your dealer until he give you your order number.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I've been sitting on my VIN number and screenshot order for my Jeep for a few weeks now, but signed up last night as a level 4 site supporter. Cost me $30. This morning I know that my truck was unloaded in Melbourne last Saturday and have a copy of my build sheet and specs. Best $30 I've spend so far.
Thnx Milous and hosts, great site, great info, great support.

Don't know about Melbourne, but my JGC has been sitting at prixcars, Minto since 28/2 and still hasn't had a compliance plate fitted. Delivery this week is looking increasingly unlikely.

That's bullshit. The VIN is used by the dealer to identify stock allocations from Chrysler. They would have been given the pins as soon as they were advised what

Sorry, that should have read that the dealer would have been given the VIN numbers as soon as they were advised of their allocation from the factory. If you don't mind spending $30, sign up here as a level4 supporter and use your order number to obtain the build sheet which will include your VIN.

I thought the vehicle kicked off in Australia with the VON - the number starting with E as posted earlier.
The vehicle gets a VIN as it obtains an assembly line order. I think I am saying pretty much the same as Selous above.

I believe the VON will work in the tracking system.
Try asking your dealer for the Chrysler order number.

I have to add my dealer wouldn't ever come to the party and stuck to the line he didn't have a number reference. I know that to be incorrect but wasn't prepared to get into a bunfight so early in our relationship. My choice.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Yes the VON/order number with the E comes before the VIN.

The VIN is not allocated until the build is cued.
I believe the VIN is not allocated until the engine is assigned to the build.
Milous would Know more about this.
Think he has posted somewhere else at what stage the VIN is allocated.

The point is Pora's vehicle is in Australia from his earlier posts. The dealer is spinning shit if he claims he doesn't have the VIN by now.
