Re: Getting impatient.......

Gunny, Well I see that you Jeep is at the dealer waiting on you.

My Trailhawk is still in Texarkana and now says it will be Friday at 8am before it arrives at industry which according to my sales lady at my dealer will be in Shreveport, LA. She will try to get an early truck from there to here. Guess we will see. Looks like it will be Saturday at earliest and first of next week at latest.

It is crazy that it is sitting so long in Texarkana. Am guessing that it has to change trains.

Was really hoping I would get it before the weekend.

Re: Getting impatient.......

I would bet on a train change also. When I hit Texarkana, I blew through and was in Houston about 10 hours later. Saturday morning roadtrip ain't all bad!

Re: Getting impatient.......

Congrats Gunny, Scorpn & Ldsoles. It is looking good for all of you. I am happy for you guys.

Gunny, Hopefully you can put a 100 miles or so on yours before you head out on the trip back to CO.

Taz, Have you contacted Jeep Customer Care? I think you need to at this point. This is the Canadian Chrysler Customer Care # 1-800-465-2001.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Agree, CFarer - I have 2 days in Houston before I head back, so I will definitely be driving!

BTW, after all the time from order through build, and the yards in Detroit, you won the race by less than 18 hours!

(Still a win, and congrats, but the narrow margin.... )

Congrats gentlemen and enjoy your rides and make them proud!

Jeep CFarer ... I just came back from the dealer and they are as upset as I am ... they have 2 North on the lot ... and they received today (a Limited all black ..it was ordered back in Oct but the lady changed her mind) and has pretty much what I wanted except it has the Sunroof but missing the 9 speaker system ... I sat in it and almost said OK but the Sunroof is in the way (I am tall hip to shoulder) and that 1 1/2 inch less of roof space is important ... would be Ok for a short time but it would bother me in the long run so I resisted as I will have it for a long time.

They are not getting a lot of support from Chrysler / Jeep. I had sent a nice but firm email to the manager Monday and he passed it to the owner (he has several sites in the region) and he will bring it up to the district rep ... I am not holding my breath! And it's like that all north of the border! So I will be patient!

I did call CCA last week but they referred me to my dealer who is the only one that can give updates (here in Canada that's how it is!!!)

Thanks for your support guys ... now don't forget to put up lots of pics!

Re: Getting impatient.......

Taz,

Keep up the good attitude. I would keep the pressure on though, nicely of course. Just let them know you are watching. Gentle persuasion.

What I do not understand, is why it is taking so long to get built. Maybe they wait for a certain quantity of Canadian specification vehicles before the have a run of those.

And good decision, wait for what you want. Spending that kind of money I will always order and wait. I do not need instant gratification.

just that one dealer has 18 Jeeps on order ... the priority is given to US and cars they have to replace because of the floods they had this year (so I was told) and I also started to let them know that somehow I will want compensation

Re: Getting impatient.......

Gunny,
My wife and I are taking a 3 week trip to New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado area in May and June and plan to tow the KL Trailhawk behind our RV and maybe hit some trails around Moab, UT. She has a friend that lives in Alamosa so will visit her while in Colorado. Not sure what all we will do in Southern Colorado but I know we will enjoy it.

Re: Getting impatient.......

That sounds like a terrific RV trip! Good time of year, too.

I'm sure you will enjoy being away from those 100 degree Texas temperatures!
