Is this missing data? Or, Does something need to get fixed and there is a backup in repairs? Or, Is the vehicle waiting for some part like a badge or a skid plate? Or, a combination of two or more of the three?

Since mine has just arrived in inspection last night, I am not concerned, nor would I be if it was a week.
I can explain this in great detail for the exclusive Diesel Club...

MOTS does know that almost all of these vehicles have left Inspection and other then a software problem or some production error, they are ready to be put on a truck or train.

Problem is they have all been "Shipped to Storage". This creates confusion about why they are in storage and the fact that as you are aware, even if we did know of some delay that can not be discussed. So the easier thing is to simply say that they are "still in inspection" as that is exactly what you are going to hear from a CSR at Chrysler.

The big clue is when you see "In Bay at Facility" 99.999% of the time that means it has passed the Initial Inspection. Also before you ask, just because your vehicle is in inspection for multiple days, that means absolutely nothing. Often the vehicle that do have a problem are fixed and out in the yard quicker than ones without any issues. Some vehicles just get hung up digitally, not physically and this gets corrected usually within a few days. There is NO ONE that can give us data on why a vehicle gets held in inspection... but remember that is often not even the case.

I still use the term initial inspection when I speak of passing through as at ANY TIME the plant can recall the vehicles for any reason, which sometimes may simply be verification of "no problem".

The only other note I have is everything I say is "likely, very likely, or 99.9 and change percent most of the time. As of course anything can change and I learned recently that a vehicle can actually be shipped without being built first.... Now that is a bigger problem than too much paint

- Dear customer, included is 37 Boxes and 769 pages of easy to follow steps on how to assemble your Jeep. Also included is the Parts Summary with the 12,000 parts including diagrams. Please do not return to store but call this 1-800 number if you are missing any parts or have difficulty with the instructions

confused

Ok, so I'm pretty confused after I read the build sheet from Milous today regarding the mopar exterior appearance group.

Chevy said that is a dealer installed item, but according to the build sheet, it looks like it was factory done.

I really didn't want mopar...I wanted engine block heater.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I have build sheet questions, for anyone that knows.
  • LACS - Illuminated Entry [Is this light in the footwells or light on the ground? I'm pretty sure this isn't illuminated Door Sill Guards.]
  • BNHP - Hill Descent Control [I thought this wasn't available yet; although, maybe I'm thinking of something else]
  • XJMS - Capless Fuel Filler [Surprised to see this on a Diesel, is an adapter available for the truck stops, (one was available for the VW TDI)]
  • 166S - Zone 66-Orlando [I live north of Tampa and I know trains get unloaded there, I also know Trains get unloaded in Orlando, I would have thought my zone would have been Tampa, maybe there is no "Tampa Zone"]
  • XZZS - Mid Model Year Vehicle Tracking [What is this?]
  • YGLA - 6 Additional Gallons of Diesel Fuel [I remember this being discussed but I can't remember why it says "Additional". (It is under Optional Eq.) ]
  • 4HC - Special Scheduling Condition III [What does this mean? I think someone mentioned it before.]

Thank you in advance for anyone that has anything to say.

I think you are confusing this with the Hill Ascend control. Right now it is delayed for CD. Check Milous' post on this.

Re: 2014 diesel production

They still think mine will be delivered on the 7th. I find it hard to believe it will get on the train on the 29th at 4:00am but we shall see. It is scheduled to be unloaded on the 5th in Tampa.

20 days a go a little birdie whispered in my ear saying the train arrives in Tampa on the 5th. I can't believe this is still the plan. The 29th at 4am. I do so love trains. I have been on Amtrak's Auto Train many times. Now with the dog that doesn't work. I have an MP3 File with the sound of a train, but that also doesn't work with the dog, he is scared by it.
OK, so they are telling me my car which may still be in inspection will be at my dealer a week from Monday.

It should look like this:

Woohoo!!!!!

Thanks so much for the update and info Willx and Milous. Now I get to sit and wait with the rest of y'all in the yard.

I'm visiting family in PA right now, it's so tempting to do a road-trip so I can go see her sitting in the lot. It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses. Hit it.

Of course I probably couldn't get anywhere close enough (even if I'm on a mission from God), nor could actually pick mine out ... but it's a fanciful thought ... Actually, I really wish I could just pick it up and drive it back to CA.

So I assume at some point soon Milous is going to PM the build sheet to me? I'm curious to see if the engine heater actually made it on there since the dealer added it later.

All they need to do is "ship" two of them to two local Detroit area dealers next week and they've made it. That puts two diesel jeeps in "showrooms" (plural)...

Seriously, I hope yours is on the way to you real soon now!

Indeed.

What's cool is when I viewed the image you linked on my iPad it looked like this:


So the "2014 Diesel Production" looks like it's part of the image.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Awesome.

"It's got a diesel motor, a 3.0 liter power plant, it's got off road tires, off road suspension, off road shocks. It's a model made with a state of the art engine so it'll run good on any diesel. What do you say, is it the new Bluesmobile or what?"
