Re: Getting impatient.......

Ordered my Cherokee Limited on 02/22 from the dealer but they didn't place the order with Jeep until 02/28. Took about 2 weeks to get the VIN number and it has been in "D" status or "Production Scheduled" in VOTS ever since. Is it ever going to change? Never did receive an email from Jeep!

I never received an email from Jeep so I don't think that is a problem. Mine was in D1 or Production Scheduled for close to 3 weeks before going to paint and so on. Yes it will change.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Congrats to those who have received and to those about to receive their Jeeps.

My story is similar to that of Mr. Taz ... still waiting for my KL Limited that I ordered last December 13th.

I now realize my order has two strikes against it:
1. I selected Eco Green as the colour;
2. Mine is a Canadian order.

I once had an Estimated Ship Date of March 10 which passed without any change in Status. Just last Monday, the dealer's Inventory and Order Tracking system gave it a new Estimated Ship Date of April 10. I do not expect that to happen either.

I have gone beyond being Impatient. I am simply numb. As Mr. Taz mentioned, Canadian Customer Service cannot track vehicle orders and only tell us to talk with the dealer. The dealer is powerless saying we are at the mercy of the factory. The local Chrysler Rep only tells the dealer my order may be built in April (and he said that in February!!). If I didn't feel that the KL is a superb vehicle that far exceeds the competition, I would not have put up with such disrespect from Chrysler/Jeep. But I have faith that the Cherokee is worth the wait. So wait I continue to do.

And by the way, I have been following this thread since Desert Hiker created it in January. It has been supportive learning of the feelings, frustrations and successes of other buyers; and, I have enjoyed the bantering amongst some. I am glad to have had the likes of CFarer and Gunny on board here even though they were not waiting for a KL model. If being open to all folks waiting for a Jeep is improper for a thread under the KL banner, perhaps move this thread to a global forum. I would still partake in it.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Halffull,

I think you are correct in the two strikes against you, color and location. I hope you do not have to wait too much longer before it is built.

Thanks to you and others on the support. Hopefully Gunny and I have added something other than constant whining, at least on my part. I never even thought it would be an issue. I wonder what would happen if I start commenting on the Dodge Dart my son ordered?

Keep smiling, you will get the Cherokee (sometime in the future)

Re: Getting impatient.......

As the thread's OP, I'm surprised the attention and longevity it's acheived - 328 posts and over 9000 views!!! The thread started as just personal statement and not a rant against Jeep. Now the thread serves as a meeting place and support group for those in similar impatient waiting.

Personally it's OK with me if there are non-Cherokee contributors - after all, they probably have feelings too and may be in need of the same type of community support. Let's just keep out of non-KL vehicle specifics.

To those of you have Jeeps on order ---- hang in there. My Trailhawk has proven worth the wait and the agony of delay.

I am not sure if WK1 owners (prospective owners) have feelings.
Congrats on your Cherokee, glad you are enjoying it.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Ldsoles1066, you are VERY close! Just 60 miles away!

If they can get it unloaded today (very likely) AND if your dealer has a truck there (not that far away) AND your dealer has a good relationship with the Yard (unknown), then they should have it back in Longview by this afternoon, ready to pick up tomorrow morning!

Got my fingers crossed for you!!!

That is what I am hoping. Got my fingers crossed also.

What is funny is that as it went through Marshall, that was only about 25 milea away.
Too bad I could not have snatched it then, lol

Now the anticipation is really high.
