As to predictions of diesel dates, I'll treat them as I do forecasts of Colorado blizzards. I'll believe it when I'm shoveling it!
Well we do know the LEAST informed people in this area would be the dealer right now

Re: 2014 diesel production

Willx, do dealers hate you? An hour test drive? From the sounds of it, you've driven many, many vehicles for long drives. If I were a dealer, I'd turn tail and run if I saw you coming!

If you find a good dealer, they will have you fill out an insurance form, and just hand you the keys.

I've taken the following for overnight test drives:
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland
  • Dodge Durango Citadel
  • Ford Explorer Sport
  • VW Touareg Executive
  • Merc GLK 250

Re: 2014 diesel production

My source is credible. I have not change my date yet, and the people here "in the know" keep changing the date. When October comes, and you get your EcoDiesel, you will know my source is credible.

Though I do not question your source is credible, I have no idea why Factory Representatives of Chrysler corp are still telling dealers it is August Production (which lines up with the Q3 Data that was delivered to dealers). I mean this is the most lame information sharing I have ever seen.

Of Course, I know for a fact the Milous has good information as he has proven that beyond any reasonable doubt. However it is possible he is on the receiving end of the poop being slide down the chute to others in the know.

So this leads me to my question which is actually more interesting. Could you speak with your source and ask him/her why the information being officially delivered through proper dealer communications is all garbage? Not trying to be difficult here but certainly there are dealers who have good reputations who have been badly burned on this.

Of course also with all respect, are you Shannon he/him or Shannon she/her. Just so we don't speak incorrectly (I am him, just for the record )

Thanks,

Re: 2014 diesel production

A "good" dealer should not have been telling the public month to month that the order banks would be open for the EcoDiesels (in March, April, May, June, Mid June, July), as this was never given from corporate to the dealers (except at the January auto show when the CEO said it would be out in March). The info has come down from corporate to dealers that the orders will be placed in August and hit the showrooms in October. Anyone who gave information other than this was blowing smoke out their a$$, or was just hopeful that their "guess" would pan out. In the end, it only makes the dealer look bad for giving poor information. Hang in there, our EcoDiesels are coming in 4 months.

That wasn't the issue at all. The dealers were given info that was to be posted in their dealerships that said best in class fuel economy with EcoDiesel and it never said late availability in the beginning. The dealers who were good lost credibility because thay have no idea when it is showing up when customers asked. Now the Marketing material that has been deistrubuted that was to be shared with customers "as it said" was that vehicles would be available Q3. According to what you are saying there will be no dealer with a vehicle available in Q3.

Not blaming you but the very best dealers only shared what they were instructed to by Chrysler. So far that information has been misleading to the customer.

Re: 2014 diesel production

On another note, anyone else catch the new motorweek yesterday on the 2014 GC? They talk about the EcoDiesel and overall sound like they like the 2014 better than their long term 2011.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Can't find any online videos. Looks like the PBS website puts up full episodes, but they're about a month behind. I did find another showing at 4:30AM Tuesday on PBS. Might check your cable and set the DVR.
