I complained to my dealer yesterday. He could only reply delivery in "November". he knitted my situation about not having transportation and apologized repeatedly. I rooks him if I don't ship the beginning of November I will have to but something else. Used most likely.

I really wanted to buy American, never bought foreign before, but if this gets pushed back any further I will have no other choice.
I drove a VW Toureg TDI the other day on advice from someone here on the site because I had never driven a diesel. The Toureg was just awesome. Just as quiet. If no one told you, you would never have any idea it was a diesel. And the turbo pick up was awesome and smooth and powerful. I digress; just go and take one for a spin. AND TRY NOT TO BUY IT.

Too small, not enough towing capacity, 4x4 system not as good, and to get the advanced options available on the Jeep you'd spend at least another $10k. I don't remember if the air suspension is even an option (don't think it is). That's why I'm still waiting....

They couldn't pay me enough to be one of their customer service reps. They have to give the same BS about 100% inspection and testing even though everyone realizes that it is not truthful.
Don't worry about these dates.... they don't mean anything, the system auto generates them.

It's going to take awhile to ship 2500+ JGC in addition to the 20,000+ Cherokees that were just released. Only so many trains and cargo trucks.
Some of the shipment staging has shown new and old builds being prepared.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Had an uncle that used to load cars onto trains and from his stories they can load an awful lot of cars pretty quickly. With a ship date of 11/1 it seems to mean to me that they load cars during the work week and have them transported on Friday. Hope that is the case because I really had serious thoughts about ordering one but I am at a point where I need something soon or dump money into my current vehicle. Cannot afford to wait until next year to get my hands on one.

Currently drive a Diesel car and I cannot imagine ever driving gas again. The joys of lots of torque are just overwhelming. While comparing the cost of fuel my car averages closer to the highway miles than the average and no gas car I ever had even came close to the average miles listed. Toss in how durable a diesel engine is compared to gas and you have to consider depreciation of the vehicle per mile and the cost comparison swings to diesel. Not to mention all the other benefits like acceleration getting onto the highway and when you are at highway speed a little touch and you are accelerating not what happens with a gas where you really need to stomp on it.

Will, my MOTS estimated delivery has only updated once very early after the build from 9/14 to 9/17. Definitely no auto generation there....?

It is a different system, draws data from something similar to VOTS. Neither Milous or I talk about it because generally it usually means nothing. Screen shot of some order status today. The Stars at the top mean (we won't update this much and we will guess when we do). Hence one shipping last week STILL.

Fot those of you without rides till the unicorns are delivered, I would try to talk to you dealer and see if they have a loaner that you can borrow. If they say no, remind them that you still have not decided where to bring your car for service, and a loaner would assure them that they get your service - this is where dealerships make their money, not off car sales.
