Re: 2014 diesel production

My current car all of a sudden is drinking a lot of coolant lately.... Head gasket issue! The thing is rumbling like crazy and front suspension is starting to shake bad.

I need these f$@&@&& JGC to ship ASAP!

My '06 Pathfinder is in the shop today. I've spent about $3K in the last month on it. Good news is...whoever buys it is going to get a heck of a nice car in good shape...bad news is...I kind of wanted to sell it BEFORE getting all of this work done months ago.

I have been bandaiding mine since March. I need new tires and brakes. I don't want to sink another dime into my current ride. Just hope Jeep ships these things before anything else goes wrong!!!

GM was good to go on a Duramax v6 for the 1500 trucks. They shelved it. I'm sure it can be resurrected.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Just got off the phone with Jeep. I have an original ship date of 9/6, but they are now telling me it won't ship until 10/4. Mine will be so old when it is shipped, I should almost get last year prices on this relic. Seriously, Jeep is starting to wear thin on my patience. If they delay it any longer than that, I may just have to look at other manufacturers, as I view this as HORRIBLE customer service.

Hang in there man... We know why and even though we don't like the delay it's better than them finding something that needs fixed AFTER they ship 'em.

Since this is a common practice their planning and scheduling sucks ass... they should be able to better predict shipping dates based off the intention to hold built vehicles from a new build until they are fairly sure there are no issues that might demand a significant recall.

However, as much as it hurts, I think it may be in our best interest that they do this... if they don't catch anything big then WOOHOO! If they do catch something big and can fix it quicker and cleaner than trying to recall thousands of vehicles already on trucks/trains, at dealers, and in customer's hands then also WOOHOO!

I don't think anyone has answered you; your status is now D1, based upon your second email. In all likelihood, the next time Milous Updates MOTS, you will see a scheduled delivery date.

I bet you could call Jeep / Chrysler and find out also. Good sign for the rest of us that you have gone to D1, since you are in the second month of ordering. Moving right along...

You watch... Those that have been sitting won't ship first...

Hm, so another thing not allowed on the Summit in addition to skid plates and tow hooks. Not sure why they don't just allow everything on the top model.

However, that is not the case because when you read the fine print (that is only apparent when you read the little tear-off Buyers Guide spec booklet at the back), it states that HAC is only available with ORAII if you have chosen the 5.7L/V8 to be your poison.

Misleading to say the least in the main body of the brochure. Mind you, the little picture on your centre console button tells the story (a picture is after all worth more than a 1000 words).

On our Overland the picture on the button is a vehicle pointed downwards. Clearly we only have HDC. On those vehicles that have both, the vehicle is horizontal.
I've noticed that too. Very confusing. Makes it sound like you can only get the feature with just two GC models and with the V8.
