The Odyssey Continues !!

My original order for my 14 Cherokee Limited was on 29 Nov 13, It went D1 on 19 Dec and was Built and in "I" status on 21 Jan 14 where it still is today.
It is now 28 Feb 14 and we have cloned the original order and I am again back in D1 status with a new VIN#. 3 Months (13 weeks) to the day and I am back to the starting point on my Jeep order..
I sincerely hope this order goes way better than the last one. So far the estimated delivery date is 3/27/14, I will believe that when it happens.
Really glad I got a refill on my blood pressure pills!!! Have needed them with the frustration of watching all those lucky people who ordered way after me get their Jeeps and start having fun!!! Guess I will just have to wait to join in the enjoyment. It really needs to get here so I can clear out the ever growing pile of parts I have accumulated in the garage

Re: The Odyssey Continues !!

I understand, I already have a few parts and need to order more soon. I will have the parts before myTH gets here whenever that actually is. I will be towing my TH behind a RV so will be replacing the front towhooks with Blue-Ox Towbar baseplates. I hope I don't have the trouble you are having since we were planning on a 3 week trip out to New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado area in Mid-May. I need it well before then so I can get it set up to flat tow.

Re: The Odyssey Continues !!

It's now the 13th of March and there has been NO movement on my replacement order. Still shows as "Production Scheduled". Dealer and Customer Service are not able to get anything other than that.
Customer Service did tell me that Future Movements show it being unloaded from a Railcar on 25 Mar but can't give me a build date. Delivery still show 3/27/14.

104 Days and Counting... Frustrated !!!

Re: The Odyssey Continues !!

I have been told that dealers recieve different build status when they place a custom order. I am not sure how the different status designations are determined but I will bet it is based on actaul units the dealer has ordered and sold. I am sure there are forum memebers that can chime in here and fill in the blanks. My dealer placed the order for my Trailhawk in Jan. and it will be delivered on Monday exactly 6 weeks from when the order went in. He eluded to the fact that the order was placed under a ceetain designation that would speed the process up. May all be "smoke and mirrors" but my TH is coming right on scehdule so I have no complaints. ths.

I hear you ... I have a very similar build to yours and it has been 45 days and it is still not even scheduled for production ... very frustrating ... and seems like others are just flying through the system (good for them) ... but it's mind-boggling

Hopefully I will get it before the 2015 are out and in production!

Mine will be delivered next Tuesday, 3/18 and it will be 6 weeks and 2 days from when the order was placed.

When I ordered my TH, the dealer told me that sometimes, they are able to take an ordered vehicle (for stock) and change it to a sold order to help get a vehicle faster. Don't know how true this is, but it sounds feasible.

My Cherokee was about 3 weeks from D1 (production scheduled) to build.
From build to delivery it was 2 weeks.
It would have been only one week or a bit more but the bad weather impacted the delivery by auto carrier.
Total 7 weeks
Good luck

Congratulations, Scorpn. Your Odyssey makes mine look insignificant. My GC ordered 4 weeks after yours and looks like it is about in the same position for delivery. We will both be happy soon, next week?
