None of the delays have seemed to be as worrisome as the Cherokee "drivetrain re-calibration" debacle.
I saw a white 2014 Cherokee at the Glendale gas station about 15 miles outside of Vegas; I was very surprised because I thought they were not out yet. I was on my way to order mine but could not figure out which color I want; Black or Deep Auburn, plus I got tired of fussing about the lease. They always think you're stupid and it's your first car purchase at the age of 65. Told my salesman I'd get back to him next week. He was the good guy, it was the floor manager that was talking crazy all of a sudden. They even stopped me after I got into my car and pulled away twice.

Shannon I just love your last statement. You have a way with words; but it is all oh so true.

You hit it on the head, how much more vague can one get. But according to my Jeep Garage Member Dictionary of phrases, "in the near future" could be; next week, next month or lord forbid next year.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I feel for you guys that have been waiting so many months. I am in the market for another SUV and own a 13 Outback which has been a terrific vehicle but I am a diesel guy at heart and sold my Super Duty last year. Owned a number of Jeeps but this new WK2 with advanced cruise control and the 3.0L diesel seems perfect but expensive.
Looked at the Audi Q5 diesel but no advanced cruise control which to me is a big deal.

Here to learn and see how this Fiat diesel treats you. Driven Fiat diesels when I was stationed in Europe and very peppy little machine...

"Inverted pork rectums" is a phrase that is now burnt into my brain... as is "Skittle and rainbow farting unicorn". There will be no forgetting these things no matter how much I try in the case of the first phrase.

I'm gonna go get a hot dog now. Yes, for breakfast...
