Re: 2014 diesel production

Can't speak for Jeep but I have been at the dealers when the carriers show up on Saturday. Sunday unlikely...

Maybe if we called the dealer and drove them crazy it would accelerate this...

If it sits there past Friday, I would be surprised but at 4-5 days it is simply on the higher side of average right now. It is not presently sitting on a truck, it is in the lot waiting for a truck.

My dealer experience has been pretty good, but the "Jeep" experience thus far has been disappointing. I called Jeep customer service to ask them why it has yet to be loaded onto a semi, and they started feeding me the "100% inspection" bs. Wow.

If it's any help, Unsung, mine still showed as sitting there (Hegewisch), when the dealer called to tell me it was on their lot.

Mine took a week and a half from initial KZ and a week after Paper Receipt and Released from yard to actually hit a rail truck. Its frustrating and sucks, but you will get on there. Then you start waiting for train updates which is even more maddening. Then your delivery date gets pushed out. It's a roller coaster but I imagine it will all be worth it from what I am hearing. Next car that comes around once it hits KZ i'm taking the first flight to some island and soaking up the sun. I imagine that will make things a bit easier. Can't even fish this time of year all I can do is stare at MOTS

Re: 2014 diesel production

There are six of us sitting in the lot in Jessup, Md. What the heck are they waiting for, a full truck?

Re: 2014 diesel production

They must be going to Koons. We should all be calling them to get on the stick!

Re: 2014 diesel production

My SFU is within 5 miles from my dealer this morning! Thanks to Milos, Chevy, Willx and everyone for the updates along the way. And thanks to everyone for posting all kinds of good information (like checklists) and fun information (like pork rectums). It has kept the journey interesting.

Placed at Industry 11/09/2013 06:57 AM EST On Railcar - Rolla, CO
(Rolla, CO is where they unload from the train just northeast of Denver, CO)

Mine made Chicago early this morning. It took 4 days to get about half way, so if that's any indication,with luck it will be arriving at the Cottage Grove lot by mid-week in the Twin Cities where they get on trucks for local delivery. Looks like the company that runs the lot is called Sierra Mountain. I wonder if I contacted them maybe I could watch it come in or get loaded on the truck or look at it? Probably not. I'm not obsessed or anything...

Jessup averages 3-4 days to turn a vehicle around. Just don't want you standing there with your face pressed up against the front door of the dealership for 2 days waiting....

The plan at this point is to drive down Tuesday.... so I will just have my face pressed to the glass of my computer, ipad, or iphone for the next few days...

If I have to change my car reservation to Wednesday... so be it. BUT I'M GETTING MY TRUCK REALLY REALLY SOON!!!!
