Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Your right, he hasn't been online much. Maybe he did buy that Kia he always talked about. We plan on making a trip to Minneapolis this summer to visit friends as well and I could drop it off to him, lol.

Yes sir, I will second that.. Anyone's Jeep built in the last FEW weeks should be fine. Of course some still get selected for extensive QC, but again, it doesn't last a month! Vehicle audits can be done in less than a day.

And yes, one of you guys' Jeep IS over in audit. However I presume its completed and ready to ship, bc it's not tagged for anything.

Would that Jeep happen to be Max Steel? With a Hemi?

Max Steel with a Pentastar!.. You sure you didn't check the wrong box?

J/k, it wasn't yours..

But there is another audit area called the Metrology lab.. You talking about a fine tooth comb! Sheesh.. Those cars are picked over like commercial airliners. They do mostly part verification over there, and keep some top secret stuff in there too.. Very restricted area. But I know a guy. Yours isn't in there either.

So if a vehicle is in the charlevoix yard does that mean odds are it want chosen for an audit and is issue free? Or is it kind of a overflow, for fubar'ed vehicles? (The last one is my luck...)

Hey Chevy, keep up the good work. Mine's been in pre-release since 2/28, so I'm figuring it's getting real close to hitting the line. Hope it keeps running nice and smooth. I'm starting to get a warm and fuzzy feeling all over.

Lets go with door number one.. To clarify, Charlevoix is a side street that runs parallel to Jefferson. Jefferson being the street the plant gets its name from, but the plant actually faces Connor. Anyway, Charlevoix yard is where all the car haulers do their pickups and drop offs. Once a car goes over there, its no longer on the immediate grounds of the plant. It's maybe 1/4-1/2 mile away from the back door of the final line where cars are driven out.

Once a car leaves out the door on final, it's parked in a yard WITHIN the grounds of the plant right outside. Then as shipments are processed, ppl come over in a van and take them over to Charlevoix yard.

Cars needing repair are parked in the lots within the grounds of the plant, and basically anywhere else they can find to park them when there's a lot of them. When I walk outside my door in the body shop, and there's car over here, that means sumn is up.. Hence my post last week. Those cars are now gone. And fixed.

This isn't to say cars that make it to Charlevoix can't come back to/in the plant, bc that happened with those January builds. But that's not happening anymore. In the past few weeks, everything that's left the plant has left for good. That is unless someone gets a lemon and decides to drive it back here, and thru the front door! (Cause I would! )

Don't worry Chevy, when you finally post something "useless" we'll let you know. For now, thanks for all the info you do share.

LOL. I'm glad it's not in the top secret lab!

Thank you for all of your posts! Whether or not it helps any of us get our Jeeps any faster, it's nice to have some info from the inside!
