Re: 2014 diesel production

My purty little SFU has been sitting in a rail yard since 11/4. I called the transport company (United Road) and they were not sure why it was still there. They said they would try and expedite it. Here's to hoping!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Hey Willx, any chance you can check what's going on with mine? I've been stuck at "Unloaded From Railcar" near the dealership for days now, with today's (11/11) delivery date...

I guess the delivery date is not going to stick at this point but any way to check if the Jeep is on the truck or just sitting at the destination rail yard? Thanks!

May I also suggest you write a review on the owner's review thread? I would ask for new bake pads, given that they were worn due to a defect.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I will post a review when everything is said and done. This whole experience needs to be accounted for in my writings.
I hope nobody else has to go through this.

Here's to fixing it once and right. Sorry you are going through a big ordeal.

I believe that last step, once unloaded from railcar to actually showing up at dealer may never show. My delivery date was also today, but I wasn't holding my breath with it being a federal holiday. One more day isn't going to kill me.

Unloaded From Railcar 11/08/2013 12:00 PM EST Miami, FL Mine has been at the rail yard in Miami since Friday, unloaded at noon that day (thanks for the update, Milous). The dealer said his info from Jeep showed delivery to him by 10 am today. Still doesn't have it. He's called the shipping firm twice today and was told both times they are too busy to track my order down. Wonderful.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Just discovered something I can't believe I missed when I took delivery. The Passenger front door handle was badly installed - seems like the installer missed a guidance pin and there is a huge gap between the handle and the door. Make sure you check your door handles to fit snugly to the door body.

So much for the 100% inspection.
