We ordered at the beginning of Jan in Sydney Australia and told it will be 1st of May. The dealer imformed us that the factory shuts down over xmas as we wanted a 2014 build model. Does this sound right?

Re: time from order to delivery?

Woohoo! Just less than one month, Jan 8 to Feb 4. Sitting in the garage, safe from the coming storm. Waiting for floor mats and other things.

My dealer placed the order the day after deposit and I was able to track pretty soon after.

Re: time from order to delivery?

Ugh, frustration.

Talked to my dealer today, said it could be another week to get onto a truck from the Rail Yard. Something about first come, first serve onto trucks depending on how the Jeep was unloaded from the railcar.

Killing me to have it so close to delivery and just sitting in a lot.

Re: time from order to delivery?

Sorry to hear that. I know what it is like to wait for mine. What are the chances that mine will arrive during my vacation since mine was supposed to be delivered 27 DEC then 13 JAN then 14 JAN a day before vacation? 100% and I had to wait until this week to pick her up.
I am at 800 miles and this is one fantastic vehicle. I am not sure Uconnect is something I will use much for the subscription but I am liking all of it so far.
I need a minor alignment as my SFU pulls to the right slightly. Once that is done I don't have a thing to bitch about.
Soon you will be loving this ride but I understand your frustration...

Re: time from order to delivery?

Got the call that it was delivered to my dealer today, but because this couldn't just be simple, they scratched the bumper while getting it off the Car Transporter and it needs to be fixed before I can bring it home. I went over to the dealer to look, not sure what happened, it looks like the scraped it against something but it's just cosmetic. They originally told me Tuesday evening/Wednesday but I talked to the manager and he told me he would do his best to get it to me Monday.

Re: time from order to delivery?

The factory was running on a skeleton crew over Christmas and there should only a slight delay. To be honest it is the luck of the draw as to when it gets to rail or truck for shipment to OZ. Could be quick but I think May is very doable looking over MOTS...

How would then run with a crew less thdn what is required? I am sure the piblic holidays and maybe the xmas week but it should not really impact orders in Jan?
