Re: 2015 Deliveries?

I hope your right. I have a trip to the keys in Florida planned for the end of march, and I need to get the jeep set up with the trailer controller and hitch to pull our Airstream in time for that. With three different places tracking this build I wish they would all say the same thing.

I towed my bass boat for the first time with my ecodiesel, the book said 50mph for the first 500 miles of towing. So I put the cruise on 50 and watched the mpg go between 28-30 very cool.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Our new Overland EcoDiesel arrived today but as soon as we got to the dealership our salesman says he has something to show us outside. I didn’t have a good feeling about the way he said this. He pointed out that the roof was slightly crushed just at the top of the pillars on both sides of the windshield. One side was scratched terribly and crushed downwards about half an inch or so and the other side was crushed downwards almost an inch and the paint was scratched and cracked. It was probably crushed by the hydraulic lifts on the car carrier during transport from Michigan to Ohio.

They estimated near $1700 to repair and offered $1000 discount on the Jeep after they repaired it. I didn’t think that was good offer so I told them to order me another one. I just didn’t feel comfortable since the damage is in an area that I consider sensitive. Who knows if the whole roof is skewed and lead to other problems down the road. I also didn’t like the way they did their math by saying they were losing $2700 on the deal when in reality $1700 of that $2700 was for the repair and I would only be getting $1000 discount.

I didn’t bother trying to negotiate anything for our trouble and we’ll have to wait another 8 weeks for the next new one. We ordered the Jeep on December 15th, so it took just under 8 weeks for this one to arrive and hope the next one will take the same or less. I’ve read some horror stories about 6 month waits for the diesels but hopefully this will not happen to us.

I took a look under the Jeep to see if they’ve changed/improved anything regarding the DEF injector and harness and it looks the same as the 2014 models so I’m glad I purchased one of Dom’s protector plates because we’re going to need it. I doubt they will improve anything in the DEF injector area between now and whenever our next new one gets built, but I can always hope.

I imagine the new paint line is up and running now after the recent shutdown, so perhaps the next build will be with the new paint line. I just don’t know if it makes any difference since ours is Billet Silver. Does anyone know whether the new paint line is doing the Billet Silver and whether I can expect any improvements? I think the old paint jobs were decent, but it would be nice to have a little less orange peel look.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

bbotte,
I ordered ours 2 days before yours, you noted that to me after you order. Ours is still in pre-production and has not been scheduled. We will be lucky to get it by March or April. Some people are just more lucky that others. Ha!

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Same here, gave a $500 deposit for the order, so the order is pre-sold. Our White Summit has nothing except the diesel, 4x4, and and engine block heater. All diesels have the engine block heater in them, just no cord. I order complete with the cord. Guess I really don't need a engine block heater being in lower Alabama. It is just that I have ordered on all my vehicles so I know it was mine. Since they started the redesigned paint line they maybe catching up on the colors since they produced the whites, blacks and the greys while doing the change over. I just got caught with the wrong timing.....maybe...
