Re: 2014 diesel production

[QUOTE=Zybane;898125]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.

And do forget color, which to me was bigger then skid plates and tow hooks. I can add the skid plates in a couple hours and really don't see the need for tow hooks if I'm not planning any serious off road adventures, though someone already has added them to their summit with a minor tweak of the front fascia.

Not trying to stick up for Jeep, but remember that 'jeep' never gave gave us (Joe Customer) release dates or ship dates. We just have the opportunity to peek behind the curtain thanks to the awesome folks here. The result is us seeing info most customers don't... And getting frustrated as a result.

I am quoting MOTS information.... Milous can confirm I get the "preview" info early in the day which I have been given permission to share with the Diesel Addicts. I only post what is going into the next MOTS update.

Ummm... Drove one, it drives nicer than my Mercedes ML320 did. Little more power, same wonderful feel of the Jeep.

It is a thrill

When I called Jeep customer support a month ago, they gave me a ship date of 9/6. That is why I am pissed right now. It is jeep themselves that is giving BULLSH@T information to us. If the ship date is and has always been October, they should have told us so. They keep stringing us along month by month since March, and I for one am getting really tired of it. Sorry, but I need to vent.

Try to remember that these are estimated ship/delivery dates. Emphasis on estimated. I doubt anyone at Chrysler has told anyone that they will definitely get a vehicle on xx date. Things can change...that's why it's an estimate.

Try not to think of it purely from your perspective of frustration. There are likely plenty of people at Chrysler that are frustrated by any delays as well even in availability. Remember...they want to SELL these things which means having to deliver them.

It'll be worth the wait

Re: 2014 diesel production

D1!

Wow, if the estimated delivery date of 10/16 is even remotely accurate, that would be a quick build considering I ordered on 9/11. Somehow, I don't see that...
