Question re MOTS estimated delivery dates

There are seven Cherokee Limiteds in the MOTS report with estimated delivery dates between January 25 and February 2, and another with estimated delivery of February 10. All are shown in D1 status. Based on how long it appears to take for US delivery as indicated in other vehicle production histories, it seems like something more should be happening if any of these vehicles are going to be delivered close to the estimated dates.

So, I'm wondering if they may keep showing these vehicles in D1 even as they're well into production, or is it just SOP that they're not going to come close to meeting the estimated delivery dates?

I drove myself crazy trying to read these tea leaves. I was sure they were playing games with me but at the end of the day my Jeep arrived only 2 days later than the dealer original estimate. YMMV of course. Hang in there, it is worth the wait, I promise!

My Limited is one of those. Estimated Delivery Date of 1/25. MOTS shows me still in D1 status, but, VOTS shows the vehicle in Paint. Not sure what is going on here.
My incentive's expire at the end of Jan so I hope it's delivered before then.

Re: Question re MOTS estimated delivery dates

Thanks for the replies.

Scorpn, yours and the other order with a 1/25 estimated delivery are the ones I follow every day. Good to hear that VOTS shows they're already busy with yours. I do check VOTS as well so perhaps it'll surprise me one of these days.

You have to be a level 3 or level 4 member ($25 or $30 IIRC). Once you've joined at that level, you PM some information to Milous and he'll get you set up in MOTS.

Unhappy Re: Question re MOTS estimated delivery dates

My TH is shown (in MOTS) as estimated delivery 1/29/2014.......9 days from today.
> VOTS shows only Production Scheduled
> MOTS still shows D1 status only
So, they have only 9 days to build and get the TH to Arizona to make the estimated delivery date.

I'm not expecting them to make the estimated delivery date.
I'm REALLY looking forward to getting the vehicle.

Crossing my fingers that you are right..mine shows the same thing and it looks like nearly the same configuration (TH, V6, blah blah) but with delivery date of 1/28...not holding breath but a girl can dream! Good luck...will watch your status as well since I am not OCD enough...

Re: Question re MOTS estimated delivery dates

I heard from the buyer of the Limited (other than Scorpn's) with a 1/25 estimated delivery date. Today he got an e-mail from VOTS and an update in MOTS, and his is built pending inspection with a new delivery date of 2/1. Could be worse! At least there's some indication these are moving along in the process.

Interesting......received email from VOTS indicating "Your new Jeep is beginning to build!!" VOTS system shows it as in paint. MOTS still shows only D1 status as it has since 12/21/2013. I thought MOTS was more up-to-date and detailed. Guess not. MOTS still shows estimated delivery date of 1/29....1 week from now. Hopefully the paint will be dry

Sassy, perhaps our Trailhawks are in Deep Cherry Red paint together!! Yours has the cold weather package. No need for that in AZ: sunny today with high of 77F.

to the sunny and 77! I have -4 with windchills of -24...woo hoo! That is good news for you! I am still sitting in the purgatory of scheduled in both places but maybe they know I have zip, nada patience and are messing with me. Maybe I shouldn't have been so picky...nah! We want what we want!
