Looks like that's probably what happened. You show delivered now.

And you have the more "normal" looking delivery update, so I believe my previous conjecture was correct.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Finally picked up the Jeep (no longer a SFU) yesterday, 3 months after ordering and about 2 years after I started looking at Grand Cherokees.

Dealer was about 150 miles away so I had an opportunity for some good quality time after picking it up. So far all of my expectations have been met.

This is my first diesel, but it is absolutely awesome. Quiet in the cab, but has a healthy 'truck' sound from the outside (in a very positive way IMO). The torque and power leave nothing to be desired so far, with gas mileage to boot. Transmission shifts smooth as butter. Still going over it, but so far I have not noticed any interior issues, paint consistency issues, door or tailgate alignment issues... All is perfect (or I am just not as picky).

Only issue so far is by the time I got home, I noticed the headlight condensation that others have talked about. Also, the dealer did not top off the DEF, and actually told me they didn't have any on hand when I asked about it (guess they don't sell many RAM trucks). They are 150 miles away, so they told me to take it to my local dealer and then send them the bill for filling the DEF... Can't complain too much on that. The EVIC gauge says DEF was about 66% full.

Still checking it out so that's all on the initial report. For those of you still waiting... Believe me you are going to be pleased.

Mine still shows "departed facility" as of yesterday, but I got a call from the dealer last night saying it was there. I wouldn't put too much credence into that.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Oh, forgot to add, when I picked up my jeep Saturday, the dealer offered me another 500 off our previously negotiated price (Colorado group buy). They said it was because my name showed up on a Jeep "target direct" mailing list. I was bummed about missing that August coupon, but this makes up for it... Ask your dealers!!

That last leg doesn't always show in MOTS. Mine still says 'departed facility' and I've been driving it since March.


Think Positive everybody!

Sometimes the truck guy doesn't submit the paperwork right away.

As I have told a few people once it departs the destination yard just add a few hours on top of the distance because they are likely doing other deliveries as well.

Thanks for rhe $500 question! I am looking forward to getting the SFU soon! I already warned my dealer about the DEF but still plan to check it. If it comes in tomorrow, that would be great as I took the day off to ne with my father, a WW II vet and Pearl Harbor survivor.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Do vehicles get delivered on veterans day? How cool would that be, I am a veteran and I get a new Jeep.

It's been unloaded from the train two hours away, I guess the last step would be truck delivery on Monday/Tuesday.

It depends on the policy of the carrier... It looks fairly likely it will deliver Tuesday at this point.... Sorry,
