Re: 2014 diesel production

Argh. What's going on with my Overland? It has been in Toledo for over a week and estimated delivery was yesterday. If it takes much longer I'm gonna be out of town and it's going to be sitting at my dealer

It is a ticking clock, they DO NOT keep anything longer than they need to, and why some of the later releases have been rushed to the front of the line to get the heck out of there.
The funny thing is if you think about it, it's a hot potato situation. Nobody but the customer really wants these things and everyone in the middle of the process wants to get it out of their hands as fast as possible. There are things in place to ensure that people hold on to the vehicle to ensure the next person in the process has a pristine as can be potato.

Oversimplification of the theory of capitalism but it's an apt description.

Agreed...early reports are that they are a pretty spirited breed...be gentle but firm when you are breaking her in

Re: 2014 diesel production

I've been following this saga since January, and have even occasionally posted.

Last week, when it was clear that the SFU's were nearing (and it was the 31st of the month), I contacted a few dealers down here to see if they would bite. One told me they would order for effectively $500 over invoice, while the other told me they FOUND what I wanted and to come on in. Sure enough, they printed me an in-transit window sticker for my exact build desire. BUT - the Sales Manager wouldn't budge off of $1000 over invoice. I told them I needed 3% below to start talking, thanked them, left, and did my own search to find that build. Turns out to be one of our JG members! Fortunately, the dealer was very honest about it being a sold order, and told me he would give me 1% below invoice to order another.

Today, I get an email from the dealer that found the sold one. The gist: You came and went, and we want your business. Challenge us to win it. So I bit. I gave them my specs, and said I wanted it for 4.5% below invoice. I was shocked at the response: "Done".

Went in, met the guy (General Manager), and had a great chat about it. He agreed that he wasn't making anything, but also agreed that a sale was a sale, and he had no risk on this.

Long story short: I am on order, awaiting VON, and upgraded membership due to EVERYTHING ON THIS SITE getting me the deal I wanted. Sure, I could have traveled to DC, but that would have incurred cost in both money and time. Now, I just have to wait...and PM Milous when I get the info...

Feels good.

What's the process of getting an extended warranty? Is there negotiating with the dealer or is it a set price?

Definately negotiate, they have room on this.

Question Re: 2014 diesel production

Can anyone here shed some light on the path my CRD is taking down to Houston?

It finally got moving with: "Released from Industry 11/06/2013 11:43 AM EST On Railcar - CN - King Road, Woodhaven, MI" but nothing else on MOTS shows a vehicle on a railcar in Woodhaven; they almost always go from there to New Boston to get on a railcar. The next (and last) update was: "Train Arrival 11/07/2013 01:33 AM EST On Railcar - Flat Rock, MI" but no other vehicle enroute or delivered has ever shown a stop in Flat Rock, MI.

My estimated delivery keeps slipping, but should I be even more concerned about it taking a different route than all the other Jeeps heading to Houston?

Thanks!

Great News!

I just hope all us early adopters (translated "potential idiots") are this enthusiastic about our rides a year from now. And within a week I'll have this thing axle deep in the swamps along the Mississippi River. I should be committed!

Thanks

I have the feeling that the rail yard wait time is just an estimate, not based on actual schedule of car movers... can someone confirm that? I'm holding out hope that she'll be delivered this week!

Yes, that's my understanding based on a similar question I asked Willx a little while back. From what I gather, they estimate how long it typically takes to get out of a particular yard. So it could be sooner, could be later.

I'm also hoping that they end up going out this week, though historically they almost never depart in under 2 days, and I've only seen two instances of them going out on a weekend. So I'm thinking it'll probably be monday unless the delivery guys have Veteran's Day off, in which case it would be tuesday, as currently predicted.

FYI, here are the days of the week that previous deliveries have been unloaded and the days that they ended up departing the facility:

tues-thur
sun-mon
