Does the tracking only begin when the vehicle is on the production line?

Cheers
To get access to tracking you need to become at least level 3 - Jeep Garage - Jeep Forum

level 4 will give you build sheet access too.

Be aware that the dealer would like nothing more that have you give up on the order and take a car off the showroom floor. Not only does he want his money now but he has to get rid of his showroom models before 30 June.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

G'Day Folks

Bought GC from dealer in Sydney, live in northern Tassie.

Finally got my VON from the dealer after 6 weeks of confusion.

Vehicle was contracted/signed for 30/12/2013 as a 2014 build. dealer told me today thats why everything got delayed, so it could be built this February.....so I'm hoping its built already or underway.

Been told what some others here have..early on they said mid April, now they are saying early May, 2014.

Appreciate the forum and all the info.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Thanks allypally
Got details back from Milous
Bit confused as states granite on the running list
But shows cherry red on the build document
I really don't know how to interpret. I
Do you know if the vin document is simply a general doc or is it
Supposed to be the doc specific to my vehicle?
If so, I'm thinking I got the wrong colour.

Thanks for the update on the shops arrival... Appreciated

Cheers
Rocksfly

I sent you a PM to give you back up info to ask dealer if that also shows Cherry Red.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

G'Day Boxheadmr,

Sydney Waitara.

Yeah looking forward to the GC and the drive with a mate... you know the traditional type road trip Guess we will be in Sydney till the delivery is signed off then get bits and pieces for the GC on the way home, ie: Uneek bull bar with winch roof racks ect.

Probably will not happen as planned because I believe the colour is wrong. What I do from here is undecided at this time.

Cheers

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Well it is official.

I got on to Jeep in the USA a couple nights ago as I was getting nowhere fast with the dealership. Customer care over there wanted a VON originally and I couldn't give them one.
Then they said "well give us the VIN"....What? LOL!
"Cant get a VIN so what now?" I responded.
"Cant help unless you give us a VIN"....Thanks

Well I flicked the VIN off to them this arvo after ascertain thru Milous and Snuke that the vehicle has been painted red instead of Granite.

Jeep Customer Care USA confirmed .....

Thank you for contacting the Jeep Assistance Center.

Our records indicate that your vehicle is scheduled to be delivered to
the dealership on March 13, 2014.

As per your build information, your vehicle paint colour is PRP- Deep
Cherry Red Crystal Pearl Coat.

Thanks again for your email.

Sincerely,

Crystal

Customer Service Representative
Jeep Customer Assistance Center



The thing is, if its the wrong colour then its not my vehicle!
