Re: Getting impatient.......

Having started this thread, here's the update on my Trailhawk's trail....

Ordered 12/10/13
11 days to D1 Status (12/21)
32 more days to build (1/22/14)
9 more days till plant release KZ on 1/31 - lots of inspection?????
11 more days (under ice & snow?!?!) before loading on a railcar (2/11)
Now on the move on the rails
2 days at Kansas interchange with no progress reported. Toto???
Last MOTS reported in New Mexico.
Estimated delivery date 2/26
......that will be total of 11 weeks + 1 day.

Salesman called to be sure I was ready to fetch it {before the month end sales report closes}. If I weren't so keen to get my hands on it ASAP, then I'd wait to March 1 to take delivery. He wasn't much more than an order taker.

Sold my Jeep Liberty yesterday...now Jeepless.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Sorry that you are Jeepless but I bet you are getting excited that your Jeep is only a state away and getting closer. I just ordered mine about a week ago and it is neat to watch others moving through the process. Mine went into D1 status 2/19

My latest:
VOTS: Status: Shipment - your vehicle is being shipped

MOTS: andamanc (Cherokee Trailhawk - Deep Cherry)
Date ordered: 01/15/2014
Current Status: KZ
D1 status date: 01/17/2014
Estimated delivery: 02/26/2014
Plant Release (KZ) 02/22/2014 12:32 PM EST Toledo North Assembly, OH
Adv Ship Notice to Dest Ramp 02/22/2014 12:32 PM EST Awhc - Toledo Ottawa South, OH
Paper Receipt 02/24/2014 08:05 AM EST Awhc - Toledo Ottawa South, OH

Dealer called me today and said his system showed my car as delivered(?) He checked and is not on the lot yet. Will call me when it does.

Had to call Hertz today to extend my car rental (going on week 4)
Hopefully, my TH will arrive before then as driving this KIA RIO is getting old - great gas mileage though

Wow- Love to know how this works. I ordered mine 1/9 (so a week before you), same color TH, and I have been in bx for over a month. How does this happen?

Makes no sense to me. I'm assuming your dealer is offering no help getting you an update? I think my dealer is sick of seeing me already - I like to pop in weekly to give him a hard time ;-)

Have you tried calling the Jeep Customer Service number? Not sure if this would offer any help, but worth a try.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Very frustrating to see that my order has been sitting as TBD since Jan 28, 2014! .... 28 days and counting!

I don't understand what could be causing this ... delay!

Anyhow I see that some are getting theirs ... so at least the line is moving.

Milous, Thanks for the personal note, and thanks for MOTS - it helps keep me up to date more frequently than I'd like to pester the dealer. I also like getting more detail than VOTS.

No word from the dealer yet, but perhaps tomorrow or Thursday delivery!!!

Thanks for the note. Yes, my heart rate is elevating about now.

I have a great delivery inspection list from this forum. At the dealer, I'll check some critical things from the list (e.g. no oil leaks, the engine runs and brakes stop), make sure the paint is all there, and that the unattached bits and pieces are accounted for. Beyond that, the warranty will cover any items I find later on after going through the full checklist in the day or two after delivery.

After delivery, I'll post a picture, then sign-off this thread and hang around other threads related to upgrades, and various Jeep pursuits.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Frustrated. At this moment.

I do not blankety blank blank blank get it. Others who ordered a full month after me have received there (similar) GC's. Mine does not even have an ETA. What gives Jeep?

Ok I will stop whining and go get some wine.

I did talk with the dealer today, maybe they will have some information tomorrow.

I can wait. I just wish I knew why there is such a difference in the time frames of deliveries. Some quickly, some much less so. This is so different than my Charger order in 2008. Two weeks order to delivery, literally 14 days.

I know we are the minority who actually take the time and effort to 1) actually order, and not buy off the lot 2) get involved in a forum like this. I guess we are all a little bit hmmmmmmmm "different".

We will have fun, once we get our Jeeps.
