Once the jeeps are finally released do you think we will ever know the truth behind the delays and all the issues?? Or will it continue to be a secret?

Re: 2014 diesel production

Talked to my dealer today. His regional rep told him "they are still fixing software issues. " My ship date has bumped to Nov 1 and sliding.

Having the rectum turned inside out is symbolic of the wait we are enduring...

Also, notice that those inside out bungholes are marked "Export"....LOL! Ship em to the foreigners first... Sound familiar?

I think not.

If you have read between the lines, there are no real secrets. But after the fact, maybe we could be a little more specific. .

So the reps fly in, get trained/prepped for launch, then drive home. Knowing how most corporate sales channels work, they may be driving back over the weekend. We need our resident detective to tail them.

The demos will be on the lots early with the promise that inventory is currently shipping and will arrive any day. That sounds reasonable....to someone who hasn't been waiting a 9 months!

Re: 2014 diesel production

The truth is Jeep is trying to make this a clean launch. As with most major product roll outs, there are issues to iron out, and Jeep wants to iron them out BEFORE people experience a problem. While I'm as disappointed as the next guy, they do this for a better experience once you're riding your new unicorn.

None of the delays have seemed to be as worrisome as the Cherokee "drivetrain re-calibration" debacle.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Over the past 10 days, I have sent 3 emails to Mike Manley, one indicating my concern over the delays and requesting information, the second thanking Jeep for the JNAP Friends/Family, and the third yesterday pleading briefly for an explanation.

Today, I received an email from Mike Manley, CEO Jeep Brand:

Jerry,
We are on the final stages of calibration. Apologies for the delay in getting your Grand Cherokee to you, but I can assure you we are very aware of the need to get these vehicles shipped as soon as possible. I will have one of the Jeep team contact you as soon as the shipment date is firmed, which we expect in the near future. Thank you for you patience and apologies again for the delay.
Mike



While Mike did not offer any new reasons for the delay, I am impressed that he took the time to write. With perhaps a third of a billion dollars in inventory sitting in Toledo (Cherokee) and Detroit (CRD), he has much more pressing things to do than appease one CRD buyer. For that he gets my kudos.

Conversely, the PR executive handling Jeep communications should have his rectum, inverted, reamed, removed, and shipped to countries unknown with the rest of the pork rectums.

That language makes Monday sound less likely. Perhaps this is his way of just being vague.
