Re: 2015 Deliveries?

I went from being able to retrieve basic info on my order (D1 status, entry date, etc.) to "no information found". Hope it's a problem on my part and not a sign of things falling off the schedule.

It wouldn't be such a problem if I could figure out when to sell my current car. The lack of a firm schedule makes me have to drag my feet to make sure we have a ride for the holidays.

Sigh.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Mine fails too now. Must be a system error of some sort.

May I clarify? What are the odds a 2015 EcoDiesel comes off the line before the end of 2014?

Based on other threads in this forum, there is a new cat that is not supposed to be available before Dec. 1. If that thread is true, we've still got some waiting to do, but we're still in the production window for 2014.

What's the chance my vehicle hits my dealer's lot in 2014? Low, IMHO.

I'm beginning to think the holidays are going to be run in the existing vehicle.

Time to buy new wipers for the old sled or cancel and buy a V-6...

The lack of info is getting old. The waiting is not the issue.

On the "contributor" side of this forum, I can see 17 2015 EcoDiesel orders, including mine. The first one is scheduled to be delivered to a dealership on 11/18. Mine is scheduled to be in a dealership in time for me to drive it to my parent's house over Thanksgiving.

This implies that manufacturing begins next week for 2015 CRDs. If something is up regarding further delays, we'll know next week most likely.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Based on my observations the time from "built" to deliver is 12-16 days. Take 12 off of 18 and it is the 6th. The vehicle should be built by the end of the week or the 18th probably will not happen. From what we've come to expect so far, what are the odds....?

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

That's mine tracking an 18 November delivery. I've seen other examples in the tracking thread that went from JNAP to DC in 8 days. This lines up with the rumored 10 Nov production start rumor nicely.

Given some of the QC nightmare stories I've seen here, I'm a little leery. However, at the same time I'm cautiously optimistic that my fears are unfounded. The last thing I want is my vehicle - built on the first day they start building diesels again - to be rushed through any processes...

On the other hand, it WOULD BE nice to see it before Thanksgiving! I am somewhat finicky, but good with a wrench. I'll be going over it with a fine tooth comb (and maybe some blue locktite + a torque wrench) both before it leaves the dealer lot and immediately upon returning home on delivery day. You can bet I'll be posting initial impressions and photos of the good, bad and ugly. Hopefully less bad and ugly, but realistically I know I can't expect it to be perfect.

Mine is D1 and scheduled to be delivered on Oct. 27. Oops. Slipped to Nov. 18.

Has anyone checked the EPA website yet to see if the 2015 diesel has it's certification yet? That's also a missing link in the puzzle, and could be running parallel with the new cat thread.

I'm not an insider. Don't have any visibility inside. Am scanning the forums, trying to piece together data, with some common sense and a little bit of background in materials planning and production engineering, to come to reasonable conclusions.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

From another thread: "Was at dealer first thing, they says 99% of GC Diesels & RAM's have outstanding open work orders for P20EE or CAT replacement.

No ETA for CAT's either.

They have no diesel on the lot and are not ordering/selling any. this is a pretty big dealership."

Hard to believe FCA...which has known about his issue for some time now...hasn't been able to come up with a solution by now. Simply buy and Audi, BMW, or Mercedes Diesel...pull it apart and replicate what the smart diesel expert Germans have done.
