Re: time from order to delivery?

Because Christmas everyone is off but they still are working a single shift is how. You don't shut down an assembly line you just let some equipment idle but keep everything going when they can. I can tell you since my Jeep was built on the 18th of DEC that the holidays caused my Jeep to not be delivered until a month later. 25 NOV order and 18 JAN delivery which is about nominal. Some got theirs built the same day as mine, same exact vehicle and was delivered to the same dealer 2 weeks before mine. Luck of the draw...

Is it unusual for VOTS to show "Paint" for 3 weeks? Here's my progress so far: 12/17/13 - Placed order with dealer for 2014 JGC Overland 4x4 Ecodiesel with Tech Grp. & received "Priced Order Confirmation" from dealer 01/03/14 - "Your new vehicle order is being processed!" 01/08/14 - "Your new vehicle is scheduled for production. Track it on the VOTS!" 01/22/14 - "Your new vehicle is beginning to build. Track it on the VOTS!" When I received the message on the 22nd, I checked VOTS & it showed in "Paint" & has been there ever since. I contacted dealer & he can't see anything more than I. Does anyone know of any production delays? Or am I just getting a little too anxious?

Re: time from order to delivery?

Ours went from being ordered on Jan 17 and sat at "scheduled for production" for 3 1/2 weeks, then one Monday morning it showed up as "in final inspection" where it sat for about 5 days and then changed to "shipped" on Tuesday Feb 11 so it seems there is not set formula. Maybe they run a batch of identical models in one hit? I'm sure someone here has inside knowledge of how everything works.

Re: time from order to delivery?

VOTS is just a summary updated once a day and doesn't always reflect the status of your vehicle. 3 weeks in paint is clearly wrong as they are built in a day so not sure what is up with that. I used VOTS and MOTS and Milous updates usually twice a day were very accurate...
Given that yours starting building on the 22nd of JAN it should be just a few more weeks before delivery...
So yes 3 weeks in paint is improbable...

Re: time from order to delivery?

Wonder if there hasn't been a log-jam with the bad weather in Michigan. Ordered mid-January. Didn't take too long to get it built, but now we're 2+ weeks for shipping to Virginia. My wife regularly points out that we could have walked to Detroit to retrieve it by now.

I've thought about that as well, but at least you've received an update. My VOTS status is still "Paint". It's been a month now. I wonder if they ever lose one?

Re: time from order to delivery?

I have visions of yours getting stuck on the paint line and eventually emerging as a large, shiny blob. Need a chisel to get in. Seems like your dealer could inquire, or get a more detailed status.

I just received a response from Jeep... ""I have been informed that your new
vehicle order should be released from Production and Inspection on
Monday Feb 24, 2014. At that time it should be prepped for and enter the
"Shipment" process.

Once your vehicle reaches the status of "Shipment", we should be able to
provide an estimated delivery to dealer date.""

So, Original order date: 12/27/13; Delivery date: Sometime in March 2014
