Do they give tours of the factory where these are built?

I remember the cars off to the side at the end of full-sized Chevrolet line I visited as a Cub Scout in 1967. One which stuck in my mind had an automatic transmission failure, with burned-smelling red fluid spilled in a big puddle. There is nothing wrong with finding and fixing defects, and I'll bet most of us would rather have a defect be found at the factory, rather than after taking delivery.

Well revoke my business degree and Mensa membership... Always assuming the worst must not be a fun way to live. What often seems like a bad thing in the short run can often turn out to be a good thing in the long run (e.g. losing a job which leads to a nice new career, losing one girl friend and finding a better one, and so forth which happen routinely). Maybe we'd all be talking about the new Ford, Nissan, or whatever Jeep Grand Cherokee instead of the Fiat Jeep Grand Cherokee.
As for tours, Chevy has stated they don't do this.

As for this bailout BS, can we please stop this on there. This thread is not the place to talk about it. Open a new thread or go search for it as I bet there is one.

Agree 100%

We will not solve that problem here and it will go downhill real fast.

Ok, a quick review of MOTS shows 22 JGC in I status that have not left the area. Not sure about all the different yards and what they are used for, but it breaks down by model like this:

SRT - 16 models in I status
Summit - 5 models in I status
Overland - 1 model in I status

Most cars leave I status within 2 hours to 1 day of being completed, and none of these fit this profile.

Ok, what the heck is going on, some more detailed info needs to be available from some source in Jeep. The nice lady at Jeep has no info access. "Just have to wait for it to be shipped" is not helpful.

Anyone at Jeep want to say "Don't worry, I'm on "it"!"???

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I've been waiting a month just to move to D1, if I have to wait in I another month I'll go crazy. Seems as though some other Overland's are stuck before D1 as well. Maybe it's those with the Advanced Tech group? Ah well, she'll get here when she gets here I suppose.

I cant speak for all the ones in extended "I" status but my Summit is one of them and I am being told it was one of 300 selected for QC and those 300 should be released by 2 April. Chances are some of the others were selected also. SRTs were all held up so don't know about that.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I don't think we'll ever understand their build process. The tech group shouldn't cause any hold ups, I added that to my model and the ORA-II and they got it built fairly quickly. I do find it odd it's sitting at the freight yard waiting to be delivered to the dealer almost as long at it took to ship from the plant.
