LOL... Mine just went to 'Shipment' status in VOTS... eagerly awaiting each upcoming MOTS update now

If I were a gambling man, I put odds on your daughter's birthday..

Is it just me or does it seem that the closer one gets to delivery the longer the time between MOTS updates???

That, or there are a few quick updates, but no movement between them.. just as agonizing.. LOL

I just analyzed the deliveries to the Winston-Salem area (rail drop for my neck of the woods in Raleigh).. Seems they take from 6 to 11 days with 9 being the average. They could make the 4/23 estimated date pretty easily if it follows the historical norm..

/me is like a kid on Xmas eve...

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

I just posted this elsewhere, thought I'd put it here too, just to make a few of you guys still waiting a little jealous:
Quote:
G'day from Brisbane, Australia.
Picked up my new White Laredo 3 litre diesel on Friday morning.
It was built in January 2014, Australian compliance plate March 2014.

Condition at delivery was perfect. Panel fit and everything else, flawless!
Dealer fitted towbar package, and aluminium 'roo bar.

With a family wedding to attend, we did over 400 kilometres over the three days, in everything from heavy stop start traffic, to freeway driving at 115 kph (70 mph), and a winding country road with long sweeping bends, and some much tighter bends, in dry weather, then drizzle, and some heavy rain yesterday. (Auto wipers got a good workout, and worked a treat! I couldn't fault them.)
About half of the mileage was with five adults in the car.

Result: I am in love with this car. From first pairing my iPhone at the dealers, to parking in our garage back at home late last night, everything worked flawlessly, a total delight to drive.
Engine is superb, and the ZF 8 speed gearbox absolutely bloody brilliant.

Fuel economy over the 400 klms of varied driving was 7.85 litres per hundred klms (about 30 miles per US Gallon), excellent given the conditions, and I know it will get better as the engine is run in. I was NOT driving for economy, varying the speed and gears to get a good run in.
(I did notice the fuel consumption rise for a little while by about 30%, whilst freeway driving. I'm pretty sure it was doing a DPF clean, though there were no messages.)
I can honestly rate this car as 10/10 at this point!
I could not possibly be happier!
We will be clocking up more kilometres before towing our 2.8 Tonne caravan next month. That will be the next test, though given the performance thus far, I'm expecting it to go equally well.

You would have just won the bet! Just got the email from Jeep this morning, and VOTS now says "Paint". Looks like my daughter and my Jeep will share a birthday!

Oh, and FutureSystem...I hate you! ;-)

If VOTS says yours is in paint, it is probably actually built. The entire build only takes 8-12 hours from start to finish. Then it will go out and sit in a lot and wait to be shipped. This can take anywhere from a day to in some cases, up to several weeks (or in the initial diesel production - several months). Then the 3-10 day train and delivery. Could get it as early as a week from now, and as late as a month from now. Average from order to delivery at this time is running 8-12 weeks.

Ugh...Java Yard. I've fallen into the black hole that is Java Yard and haven't passed inspection yet. A quick delivery is looking less likely.

You and I were probably in there together...I have NO idea what's going on with my Jeep. I keep hearing about "weather related issues..." I don't believe any of them.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Well...just got an email from the dealer. Apparently, there were quite a few cars that were damaged in Java from hail...including mine. I don't know the extent. But I'm furious. I don't even know what to do at this point.

Wow. Any idea when that happened? If I were you, I'd be tempted to cancel and re-order...if the 2014 deadline hadn't passed. Now we're at their mercy.

I certainly feel for you. I wish sometimes VOTS and MOTS didn't exist. Without them I'd have just expected to get the Jeep at the end of May, beginning of June and forgotten all about it 'til then.
