Thanks (and also to Jeep CFarer). Since I am on the north shore of Lake Erie in Southern Ontario, Google Maps indicates I am a mere 225 miles from Toledo, OH. So I agree ... hopefully there are no speed bumps. I wonder if they will do road or rail+road delivery.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Well it was worth the wait ... I took possession of my "Baby Grand" this afternoon.

She looks and feels good so far!

One disappointment ... I had to stop at a gas station on the way home (3 km from the dealership!) as the low fuel light came on ...

Have a look at Cherokee :: 2014 Jeep Limited for pics.

Well guess what ... the dealer called me bright and early this morning and apologized profusely and asked me to stop in and they will give me a full tank!

Please be aware that Chrysler only reimburses the dealer for making sure there are 3 gallons of gas in the vehicle at delivery. It states this on the window sticker. Any more gallons of gas the dealer adds beyond that comes out of the dealer profit. I always negotiate a full tank of gas into the purchase deal when I buy a vehicle to make sure I don't have the problem that you had.

@MacFan ... problem is I made it on "fumes" to the gas station and the Jeep was starting to "jerk" when I pulled in ... so there was much less than the 3 gals ... they had drove it from another dealership 460 km away ... and did not bother putting gas back in!

Further support for "the squeaky wheel gets the grease" theory.

Well done!!

I have already told my sales person that giving me a full tank is the least they can do to help offset my 18 week wait. I will press for more appeasement when the time comes. MOTS indicates that the KL departed the plant this morning, but now it is Easter Weekend so I don't know when the dealer will get it and when the prep will be finished. But she's getting closer to home.

The last few days before she arrives seems longer but if it keep up as it is now it is well worth the wait ... love mine so far ... seems to have lots of power ... haven't yet really tried it ... I am still getting use to it ... seems very nervous / hesitant when she starts rolling ... still in training I guess (me or the Jeep? may be both ) ...

I have the regular sound system and it seems very adequate. And believe me ... people are noticing the different look and so far all I received are Wows and "It looks really good" ... very comfortable and great ride ... I am coming off a Pilot so it is definitely smaller but I don't feel squished in it ... and all that luxury and techno inside to enjoy!

I am sure you will love it ...

Well, she finally arrived at the dealer on Wednesday, April 23 and she was home in my garage by supper time on Friday, April 25.

I have often expressed my frustration over the wait (exactly 19 weeks!!) in this and other threads/forums. But now I will join the chorus chanting "It IS well worth the wait". Thanks to Mr_Taz and everyone else for the encouragement during the darkest hours.

Having never before seen the Eco Green colour in person, I am now very happy that I stubbornly waited for it. I love it. As one friend stated, it has the character that whites, blacks and greys are missing. That is what I was striving for with this colour choice, something distinctive. And it has delivered.

Most happy now

BTW, the dealer did provide a full tank!

Congrats HF ... she really looks good .... enjoy!

I took mine for a long ride yesterday ... over 600 km, mostly Highway at an average speed of 72 mph (115 KMH) ... and I got little over 26 mpg (10.5L/ 100 km)... with a Tow package and ACTDRIVEII .... very happy and it seems to have lots of power left!
