The wait is actually saving me alot of money. I decided to buy the crd so id stoping throwing money at the challenger srt8. Modding the challenger became extremly expensive and addicting plus the 100 mile/day commute wasnt very economical with a supercharged 426....with winter around the corner

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.

First of all, if there are any Jeep Executives in here, take note, this is all we wanted to hear - and actual reason for the delay. On that note, since it was supposed to be released 7 months ago, I am not impressed with delay, after delay, after delay. Jerry, thanks for taking the time to write to him so we could get a little more information. Now if we can just ship the head of PR to Taiwan with the inverted pork rectums.

Re: 2014 diesel production

That response sounds robotic, not genuine. All I'm gonna say about that.

Final stages of calibration?

Um, that's a CHEROKEE issue, not GRAND CHEROKEE.

I could go on but I won't.... too angry about this whole debacle.

Furthermore, that email looks like a cut-n-paste response. I imagine an administrative assistant answers the publicly published CEO address.

It didn't mention it on the menu, but since I ordered mine with the cole slaw on the side, I was able to savor more of the "authentic" flavor.

Apparently a different regional rep that told someone else it was a cabin noise insulation issue. Where do these people get this inverted pork rectum information?

Chevy's probably right, after we all get our CRDs many/most of us will quietly disappear into the diesel sunset leaving behind faded memories of skittle farting unicorns and inverted pork rectums (or perhaps those are things best forgotten??). Hopefully at least for a while, there will be mass quantities of personal reviews and experiences to keep the thread going for a while. The EV (Entertainment Value) of this thread has far exceeded the price of membership, has provided comical relief to the anxiety of the wait, and it would be great if somehow somewhere it could continue. I'm afraid I will have withdrawal of some kind without it....

Sorry BradSD, but from what I read in the welcome information, in house therapy is not covered under level 3 members. You must be level 4 or higher. You know it's sort of like the factory option packages they offer on the Jeep GC.
