Nice to see my old hometown (or at least close) being represented.
Yup I'm the other Dublin. After canvassing every other dealer in the bay, they had the best price. One of their salesmen pissed me off but Jim seems fair enough.

My prego wife can't wait when she get's it so I can get rid of the only gasser we own.
It's time to let the Highlander go for retairment and our Unicorn join the Stable with my Cummins and two Sprinters
Diesel is the way to go !! )
Other one from New Jersey would be me. I was one of those who misread Chryslers press release back in 2012 and was waiting to buy a 2013 CRD last October. Then found other groups with bad info that predicted a Dec. 2013 order release. At least I found this JG in Jan.
It has been a rough ride.

Had the opposite experience than Temarius. Was thinking of giving up this past summer and the wife said, are you crazy you have waited this long why would you stop now.

I keep my vehicles and diesel is the future. Hoping to keep this one a long time.

Re: 2014 diesel production

No window sticker for me, yet Guess I'll just have to keep refreshing throughout the day.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I wanted to post for anyone that is repeatedly refreshing looking for KZ... I have been checking the last little while and nothing yet.

You will note sometimes I post the KZ then you see the official update and the time is way earlier, but as Milous can likely confirm sometimes they are not right there right on time. The official release time at the ramp gets posted on the Tracking thread but sometimes that doesn't appear for an hour. Lately this has been slower than normal. I do post them as soon as I see it though.

Just don't want you guys to think I am slacking just because mine started to move

Yeah, after my emails with Jim, I had decided that's probably where I'd buy it. Then I went there in person when Jim wasn't there and had a terrible experience. Among other things, they wouldn't let me test drive an Overland because I had mentioned I wanted the diesel and they said they only allow people to test drive Overlands if they're pretty sure the customer will buy that vehicle and since I wanted a diesel I wouldn't be buying that one. I even asked for the sales manager to come over, and he said the same thing. After that I was ready to cross them off my list, but I shared my experience with Jim, who was horrified, and after a few more emails with Jim, they were back on my list.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Wow. I had pretty much the exact same experience. I ended up in Fremont for my test drive, and decided I'd give them my business unless I get a better offer somewhere else. When I told them Jim's offer, the guy in Fremont told me to run, not walk, to secure that offer

Justin: It's just another step in the process... at least I'm not complaining that Chrysler is shafting me because the window sticker isn't available in some time frame they vaguely announced in a press briefing.

Ehh, I imagine we will be last...furthest away. Not many of us either.

I perfectly expect to be dead last on receiving for the first day orderers....furthest state in a rural area with a small dealer to boot.

No, we don't expect slacking till yours is actually delivered
But it will be well deserved

I know your other ride arrives today or tomorrow, but the better ride will be there within 2 weeks....just saying, I don't want you to have any regrets a month down the road. The wait sucks, but you have waited this long, and the light at the end of the tunnel is a train, but it is a train with your JGC on it.
