Why don't you question whether the source is credible?

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,
Generally the monthly production cycles start the Last week in the previous month. So, "September Production" starts in August. Ordering is always for the following months production cycle. "August" production starts in July with early July ordering.

If CRD ordering opens on August 6th it will be, by definition, for the "September" production Cycle. That doesn't mean production won't start in August.

Therefore since saying production will start in August means "September Production", it makes room for lots of confusion.

Based upon this, I believe everyone may be in complete agreement.

The lack of any written statement from Chrysler is the real problem.

I understand this, the issue I had was that the Diesel would be available at Dealers Q3 which is what they had put in writing. I guess the sticking point is that the Info Shannon posted which could be correct would say that will not be at Dealers until Q4.

Anyway, doesn't really matter to me, October would be fine. You are also correct other than the official statement about Q3 and the marketing materials (which is a joke as I see lots of posters that say "Available Ecodiesel" and certainly say noting even in the fine print about late availability) there has been nothing clearly telling anyone when it is available. That part is the lame issue.

Who are you referring to? You posted the "Aug/Sept/Oct" dates just a few weeks ago, around the time that Chrysler released the same information to their dealers. In the 6 or so months PRIOR, the production date for the diesel has been set, and then pushed back several times.

The originally scheduled SOP (start of production) date was Monday March 25th, with order banks set to open in late January/February. One week ahead of that, JNAP rescheduled the date to late April, and right after that moved it to May 13th.

THAT is why we have had all of the "Jan/Feb/Mar/April/ etc." dates thrown around, and why dealers and others have passed along that information along the way.

Prior to this month, NO ONE knew or could have predicted the currently scheduled dates, as they kept changing - and could still change yet again.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Sorry Milous, I was not referring to you, I was referring to dealers giving out bad info. I know the date has changed, but the dealers just kept telling people the order banks would open "next" month for the past 3-4 months.

Re: 2014 diesel production

All I know is that I'm getting sick and tired of getting jerked around and told this date and that date but no it's actually this date but maybe it will be later. If they dick me around again and blow the August order/Sept build/Oct delivery date then I'm just going to have to....





Wait even longer.

Is this one of your not-so-subtle clues as to the diesel won't be out until next year? Yes, I like to stir the pot.
