Normally by the end of June going into Q3 we're 50,000+ cars in the hole. Which on one hand is a good problem to have, but on the other, customers' patience does run thin.

And yes, it does have glow plugs.. If you still wanna call em that. Glow plug technology too has come a long way, so you don't need to sit there for 20-30 secs and wait for em to heat up. I actually tested this last winter on a couple of the pilots in the yard on some of the colder days.
Ok I got understand. The only familiarity I have with diesels is with the HMMWVs and other tactical vehicles I worked on in the Marines. I guess they are long outdated..haha. I just checked VOTS and it looks like my salesman made a mistake on my order. He put the color as deep cherry red when I wanted deep auburn. My SFU is supposedly in the production scheduled phase, so can I get this fixed still? I hope this doesn't prolong me getting this vehicle..

Re: 2014 diesel production

Jeep is close enough to the dealer that I went ahead and booked a flight and hotel. My wife was able to get time off work when I am off, and is coming with for the road trip back. Have a few extra days off, so we are going to make a vacation of it, and do some sight seeing on the way back. Flying down on the 13th and arriving late. Pick up first thing on the 14th. Need to hook up with Brainstormer while we are in town. Going to be a great trip

Shouldn't affect it one bit.. Go change that ASAP though. Once you hit D1 it still technically shouldn't affect it in theory, bc it's just paint, but you won't be able to ammend the order then. So again, do that ASAP!

Good one!, but to man it up a little, maybe the unicorn should have bacon wings, standing on a box of inverted pork rectums?

In all seriousness Will said it just sometimes misses updates when it gets to a new yard on occassions. Hoping its missing a lot of updates in Jeeps system and my dealer will call me anyday now to pick her up.

Once a vehicle has papers and is staged at Toledo Nitro Creek is there a date assigned for it to be trucked on to the dealer? Or is it just kind of random from that point?

Here are the last two lines of my Jeep's tracking;

"Unloaded From Railcar 03/08/2013 07:58 PM EST Jessup, MD
Departed Facility 03/13/2013 06:44 AM EDT Jessup, MD"


I don't know where it went from there.
I don't know whose Jeep I've been driving since March 14th.
I hope the one that left Jessup in March eventually finds a home.

Re: 2014 diesel production

The 2014 JGC Limited Ecodiesel 4X4 I ordered in early August is scheduled for delivery to my dealer this Thursday. Like the vast majority of you I was not able to test drive prior to ordering so the dealer was good enough to order exactly what I wanted but did not ask me to put down a deposit. If I test drive it and decide not to take it, no harm no foul. Based on what I've read in these threads there's probably not a snowball's chance that I'll walk out empty handed.

So, its getting close to time to slap leather and I was wondering the range of deals those about to take possession expect to get. The dealer said my CRD will MSRP for $47,085 and his first shot was that "he could sell it for $45,800" or 3% off MSRP. I know there's room to go lower but wondered what is the pricing norm for a new launch like this?

I wonder if some of you already have deals prior to delivery or what some of you are realistically expecting to pay, on a percentage basis, below MSRP?

And happy motoring to all!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Question to the insiders: I this "http://www.edmunds.com/car-news/2014-jeep-grand-cherokee-ram-trucks-recalled-for-instrument-cluster-defects.html", affecting the CRD's just being released, is it already addressed or contributing to delayed shipping.

Still waiting for that almighty westbound train.

Thx.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Question to the insiders: are the CRD's affected by the pending instrument cluster recall, is the issue already addressed or does it affect shipping.

Still waiting of that mighty westbound train.

Thx.
