Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I'll be lucky to get mine in 8 weeks time. Ordered the first week of Feb. No reason for it to sit as long as it did just to make it to D1 status.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

It's all relative. When I ordered my last car, a Subaru WRX, it took a while. Ordered on December 27th, didn't get to the dealer until March 14th. Granted it had to take a slow boat ride in there, but the delay after it was built watching it sit in queue to get on the boat, off the boat, wait for rail, wait for truck, etc. was excruciating.

In the end, I was lucky. Anyone about 3 weeks after waited much longer as that was when the tsunami hit.

Hmm... this was my reaction when I saw it on Friday.

I actually feel worse for you and Marlon because you put so much work into it. This car was going to be really special...first one in a long time. If they could just give me some kind of reason why it's going to be sitting finished for close to 2 months.

It's really the fear of the unknown. But thanks to the two of you and Milous and so many others here too numerous to name, it was a great process. Also great to see others here who had better luck and are enjoying the Jeeps as we speak.

All in all if this is the worst thing that happens to me this year, it will be a great year. Like someone said, first world problems.

Thanks to all.

Except that my "assumption" is backed up by countless economics experts and not just an opinion. But learnin' is anathema to some so there's that. And data and reality. But let's just dream about how good things would have been if only... That's real productive.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Just wondering how many diesel buyers are getting the tow package? I'm in for a diesel but unsure if I will ever need to tow but think it might be good to get for resale. Thoughts or opinions? I realize that it will depreciate like everything else but think it will make my GC more attractive to a larger group of diesel buyers.

Same here. I am getting ORA I and tow. I figure if I'm getting a Jeep, I might as well get a Jeep. I imagine it would be an easier resale than one without, too.

I have benefitted from your posts, John, and appreciate your even keeled temperament/posts. Hope you're able to get a ride that suits you.

So, it was a pretty quick time to actually make it to assembly, but now it is kind of hanging out there in final inspection according to VOTS.

John,

What has your dealer said about this or are they doing anything to help you out?
