Probably taken out by a snow plow........................
Can't be repaired and sold as new.
Probably off to auction.

Re: Build or Delivery Date estimates

Got the wonderful phone call from my dealer yesterday morning that my Jeep had arrived. Went to pick it up last night, got them to give me the lifetime extended warranty with unlimited miles for the $2185 I saw quoted on one of those websites, and got them to throw in a year of free car washes too. Haven't gotten to drive it too much yet, but it def seems like it's going to be a gas guzzler. Got to go to work this morning, but I will try to post pics soon.

Re: Build or Delivery Date estimates

Okie, what they tell you about 100% inspection is true for the Cherokee. They are doing a drive test to ensure the powertrain acts as expected (seeing as that was the main reason for the long delay in getting them released). The original vehicle that was slated to be yours didn't pass the drive test.

Re: Build or Delivery Date estimates

At the time his was built, they were. Sadly its gone on way too long. At least the Chrysler rep is taking care of him.

The new fast tracked order was sent to shipment late yesterday. If the first one didn't pass it's drive test then them not doing drive tests anymore is a little unsettling. Unless they have worked all the bugs out. If I remember correctly the dealer said it was a none mechanical issue with the first order along with about 30 other cars?

Re: Build or Delivery Date estimates

The drive tests had little to do with actually testing from all Ive seen, its was about reflashing the transmission like the TSB that is out (the first one). Anything built in late Nov on shouldn't have needed it.

My first order was built on Dec. 13 and I saw one other person on The Jeep Cherokee Club who's Limited was built on the same day also undeliverable. He was also fast tracked with a new one a couple of weeks before mine. I'm assuming both cars were part of that group that had issues passing inspection.

what is the Jeep phone number can I call to ask about my Jeep order? please help. thank you.
