What to make of this.......

From the salesman......via email

"We have been contacting Jeep Aust and they are still working on it. They have advised that a new E number should be on its way either before end of business today or tomorrow morning. Once I receive it I will advise."

So I guess they are re-ordering with out saying so at the moment and we just lost 2 months or is it conceivable that they simply gave me the wrong VON????? I'm thinking they are doing a re-order.

Ouch, surely there will be a 2014 build on its way that fits the order?

Benn0, will need to hear back from the salesman as promised later today or tomorrow. If I get a new VON I am assuming that it would be an existing dealer ordered vehicle that may be in the system. From what I have read it would normally take up to 2 weeks to get a VON from date of order, so we will have to wait and see what 'they' are up to.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Reply to his email and say to supply you with the VIN at the same time as the E-number, this way the two can be cross referenced for accuracy.

When you ask Milous for new tracking info, you will need explain why, but I am sure he knows from your earlier PMs, and ask if he is able to get that date info for when the order was received by Jeep US.

Snuke are you talking the original docs and ordered date or this time around?

This is what I sent....


"What is happening?

Are you re-ordering the vehicle?


OR Is Jeep Australia having a look for a vehicle which is a dealer ordered vehicle.

Remember I wanted a 2014 built MY14 I dont want something built in 2013.


If the vehicle is being re-ordered, then we just lost 2 months.


Please advise asap what action is being taken so I can advise you according to my wishes.

When you get the VON I want the VIN too thanks so I can cross reference dates etc."

It would be interesting to see when both our cars were ordered.

Smile Re: WK2 DownUnder

I ordered my MY14 Grand Cherokee on the 30/01/14.Delivery late May early June
My dealer supplied me with a E number which he called a comm number which is E5756343.
I gather from posts on this forum you are supposed to get a email from Jeep confirming the order. I have not had an email from Jeep as of today 25/02/14.
Is this right as the Jeep site tracking knocks me back saying the name and E number don't compute.
I know that there is a site within this excellent forum where for a small fee you can track your build but will it also knock me back.

Cheers
Peter

Dont know about that.

As at close of business today---------


"Thanks for being patient,

Your car is still on track for May delivery, we are just waiting for Jeep to send us the car details so I can forward them on to you.

It shouldn’t be too much longer before I have the details."

It was originally suppose to arrive 15 04 2014.....during the last few weeks with the jeep computer fiasco, the salesman intimated the vehicle might not arrive till May at which time I spat the dummy a little over a 5 month delivery wait...

So the plot thickens.

Not sure this vehicle was mine at all. Or if it was they cocked it up and now they are hunting up a replacement or starting over. If they are starting over then it appears they are trying to fast track a VON thru Jeep Aust and USA, time will tell.

Join the forum level 3 or 4 and send Milous your VON or E number and then you'll get more info in a short period of time than jeep dealers have given you in months.

Good Luck

Nice 102. I recall the video and the username stuck in my mind. I think I was responsible for 100 of your YouTube views

I also had a stickybeak at the beast. Happened to be staying at the same hotel one night in Goulburn.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

For those of you who have recently placed an order for a Grand Cherokee, and want to obtain an E number, or even track the build until it arrives on Aussie shores, I recommend you use the following thread which has all the information you should need. Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread
