Same boat! I've been searching every dealership in my local area looking for an "in transit" diesel. I called my dealership today and asked them to find an unsold 3.0L Overland that is already shipped. I originally ordered a limited with tow, nav, and 20" rims, but am now having regrets for not getting the air suspension. We'll see what they can do. They've been sitting on my $1,000 deposit for over 3 months now with nothing to show.

Angry Re: 2014 diesel production

yeah, same deposit here about the same time. Worst part is--the new car smell will be gone by the time it arrives.

Don't worry, the engine will still smell like cat piss and smoke for the first few drives as someone stated earlier.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Walt, what dealer did you order through?

I talked with my Bremerton dealer, it looks like everyone that ordered through him is set to be delivered between Nov 11 and 13th.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I placed my deposit at Courtesy Jeep in the Tampa area. They really have been fantastic and couldn't have asked for a nicer salesman.

Just got the magical call from my dealer. My unicorn is now grazing on their lot anxiously waiting for me to bring her home.

Would be great to have an area that has a track for the SRT owners, and mild, moderate, and expert off roading areas for Jeeps of all trim/modded levels, along with a central area for us all to meet up at the end of the day for dinner and cocktails, as well as to socialize and tell stories.
Lexington would workout great for me location-wise... I would be able to help out if it's in ir near that city. The in-laws live there so I can sell it to the wife very easily...

Re: 2014 diesel production

Paper Receipt 10/29/2013 09:25 AM EDT VASC - Detroit Axle Yard, MI
Staged For Shipment 10/30/2013 03:45 PM EDT VASC - Detroit Axle Yard, MI

Just wondering how long it can take to move from "Staged for Shipment" and "Plant Departure" for a delivery 200 miles away to Ontario Canada via truck?

I'd be very grateful for any additional information on this.

BTW. I happen to know that a Dealer Stock unit is available at Fairview Chrysler in Burlington, JGC Summit 4x4 CRD, White over Black in case anyone is interested...

That would be news to me. I ordered on 8/12 from this dealer and MOTS still has me at JS with an old delivery date of 10/9.

Ok. My Louisville to Nashville train is now officially taking longer than any other MOTS tracked GC. Its always an 8-10 hour time between departure and arrival and the max layover in Louisville has been 28 hrs. That's 38 hrs. I'm at 50 hrs and still showing "Arrival at Louisville" at Wed noon.

Will says my train had departed. It must have stalled on the tracks or took a detour. Does anyone know how to track a train in the same way UPS or FedEx track packages?

This will drive a logical person mad!
