That would be an incentive to wait this out.

Reorder with a different dealer. I've been running diesels since 2005, been waiting for this Jeep for two years. I'm not giving up on the SFU, just this SFU/dealer combination potentially. What really burns me is that the dealer I ordered from, I swore up and down, I would NEVER do business with again after they put GAS in the tank of our Jetta TDI a couple of years ago. That was done at a different location, but under the same dealership name. But, after I was referred to the Jeep dealer, they gave me a fair price, and are local, I gave them the benefit of the doubt.

Re: 2014 diesel production

My first post but I have been following for several months. I picked up my 2014 Diesel on Saturday, November 9th, ordered on August 12th. Limited, Cherry Red, tow package and Nav. I traded a 2011 Jeep GC Laredo.
Some initial impressions after the first 300 miles..
  • Fit and finish are excellent, none of the alignment issues
  • NO EcoDiesel badge, nothing to identify as a diesel
  • Driven 360 miles and still have half a tank left
  • Great acceleration, much better that the v6
  • Nav is a great improvement along with the VR system
  • Michelin Latitude tour tires are NOT on/off road
  • After driving at highway speed and then in traffic a smell of what is best described as cat urine
Overall it is a much better vehicle that the 2011 v6 I traded, and I thoroughly enjoyed that car.

Central Massachusetts, Harr Chrysler Jeep.

VOTS says I'm still in shipment. It was delivered to the dealer 5 days ago and I picked it up 3 days ago.

In case I haven't said it before, thanks Milous, Willx and MOTS!

I hear you...In the same boat but different city...Council Bluffs...4.5 hours to South Dakota and home. The weather here is more than perfect for November...I should be driving Lady Auburn...Oh well!

I wrote customer service again...Not sure why! Not sure they care or want to hear from us!

Re: 2014 diesel production

grayghost, have you taken possession? Your vehicle is my inspiration: 31 days from order to unloaded from rail car. That is one speedy unicorn.

Hmmm, I'd think that is something the dealer should work with Jeep to put on there, unless you don't want it. I would consider it a badge of honor that I definitely want on my vehicle.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Any idea on how many are left that have never made it out of Detroit. I finally made it out of Java yard on 11/6, now I'm stuck in Jefferson.

Am I the only one?

Don't think there is any hope for the expected 11/18 delivery.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Looks like I will be picking mine up this afternoon. Thanks for all the little tidbits for inspection and I will have some pics later and a small review in day or two.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Dealer just called. Will be picking up in a few hours. Hard to say but could be the first one in San Diego. Certainly their first one. You all know the feeling. This has been a tremendous experience being part of the forum. Look forward to many interactions in the months and years to come.
