It is terrible. This is still Chryslers vehicle, and the companies they contract their transport business to represents them.

I've got a lot less patience than my wife. So, when she begins to lose her tolerance + being pregnant = enough is enough. I'm expecting something to break tomorrow.

Also, I'd like to thank Chevy for the assist.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Picked up the car today and drove about 150 miles. Full tank of fuel and DEF. The guys at Koons did a great job. Because they knew I was one of the forum group buy people I was able to get 0% financing ( I have a real good credit score) and a good deal on the extended warranty without any real bargaining. They honored the veteran discount also.
Lights and doors were well aligned.
Drives great, radios great. Did have some trouble getting my wife's iphone to synch. Overall a great experience.

Re: 2014 diesel production

So close and still no delivery in site.
Mine arrived at the destination rail yard sometimes Fri morning, and promptly departed, still on the rail car to Vancouver. It's been there for 2 1/2 days.
Called dealer on Fri, he confirmed Vancouver, he says he is able to get something done once it is unloaded, but first it has to get back to the correct yard. Very frustrating watching this thing move at snails pace.
I wished we had a factory pick-up option like some of the Europeans.
Wait, wait, wait some more ..........

Re: 2014 diesel production

For all of you waiting to take delivery, I hope it is soon. Most of you have waited months and months (or years), and i hope you get them this week.
While you wait, in the Ecodiesel owners review thread, I just posted an in-depth review on our 1650 mile trip from Texas to Minnesota, via New Orleans and St Louis. Long read, but I tried to give an accurate review.

Getting anxious from reading all the great reviews from everyone getting deliveries.. Looks Like I'll be showing up really late for the party :/

Thanks
I am hoping to see movement today on this little SFU.
