Chevy, sorry to hear you are not well. When we did not hear from you, I was hoping you and Marlon were in the Charlevoix yard with flashlights lining up the JG vins.

Have a great weekend !!

Thank You Chevy, as I have always said no better info than from the ground!!

FYI, MOTS is alway a long ways ahead of VOTS but Chevy usually sees lot of things that don't register to central logistics for at least an hour or two.

He is 100% correct though, we seen lots of shipment staging leading up to this, so I am hoping they fly off the shelf!

Sorry to hear about your headache, hopefully that goes away soon!

Another great source for financing is the Transportation Federal Credit Union (www.transfcu.org). Their auto loan rates are the best I was able to find:

1.74% for 48 months
1.99% for 60 months
2.24% for 72 months
3.24% for 73+ months

To qualify all you have to do is sign up with the American Consumer Council.

They also are the only lender I've come across that will loan up to 100% total loan to value for a mortgage.

Anyways, I hope this helps!

This is great. Lots of movement. Looks like all KZers are from Charlevoix Yard. At this rate it shouldn't matter too much anyway.

Shouldn't we have something better to do on a Friday night?

Thx.. And trust me, I had every intention of sticking around when I got off at 5p and comparing real time shipping with what the guys reported back here.. I just couldn't take it and left just before lunch.

I know everyone would love to hear theirs was one of the first ones out, but I'm glad Willx made that initial bunch. You all might tend to forget that he's been in this with you all, considering he's mainly looked at as an 'insider.' It'd be like if Milous had one on order.. I'm sure everyone would be happy to see his go ahead of theirs.

So for the rest of you guys, thanks for hanging in there, and hopefully you all find that the wait was well worth it.. Oh, and yes they will be shipping all weekend. Just in case anyone was wondering.

Hugely appreciated Chevy, when I seen the original list, I almost died... I thought, Shannon is going to hunt me down

Anyway, I will try to keep up with it best I can and keep you guys posted on when your vehicles post movements. The Tet is coming online so Milous Time now!

Thanks again Chevy, have a great night!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Congrats to those who (finally) went to KZ! Hopefully the rest of you hit KZ status very soon. However, as you guys will find out, the worst part of the wait is between KZ and delivery. It took 2 weeks for me to get my Jeep after it went to KZ status, and I swear it felt like 10. It isn't anything you guys can't handle, having already waited an eternity and suffered through numerous delays.

By the way, 83 users are currently viewing this thread! That has to be some kind of record!

I take it that means it's a nice drive? Buying new is already a stretch for me and doing it without a test drive is unthinkable (hopefully a possibility soon, or at least I'll hear real-world opinions on the final shipping US version from you guys), so the Grand Cherokee delays pushed a final decision out. While I was waiting, some unplanned expenses combined with the mandatory option packages that I specifically don't want made me a little more cautious. Having the diesel in the lower trim levels for the Ram 1500 makes it worth considering to me, and as a consumer I say alternatives are just a good thing in general.
