Sorry man, but the trains don't ship cars everyday, like the car haulers do.. As I've said before, they have a very complicated operation, and I can't really figure it out. Many of the cars shipped in the Midwest are sequenced with other cars for car hauler loads, but even a lot of those still get stuck down in Toledo for a while, and are unloaded/reloaded with other cars. It's like a web of sorts, and it's not something I've been able to totally figure out in years.

Anything beyond 300 miles destination (give or take), definitely gets shoved into a train at some point though.

Even still, it's a regular thing to get off early in the morning (or come in) and there's 10-20 car haulers in the yard with the ramps down, loading cars. Just this morning I rode by, and it seemed like every car in the yard had the hazards flashing, about to go on a trailer.

That lot holds at least 5000 cars, but it takes no time for them to clear that joker out! Just to give you an idea, we haven't had a slow down in production in a few weeks. And yet the number of cars in that lot is constantly shrinking. Which means one of two things; 1.) thieves in the neighborhood are helping move the inventory out, or 2.) they're shipping 'em just as fast as we can build them, if not faster.

But again folks, you have to associate some of the delays with the inventory calculations. Idk what exactly they want right now, but typically manufacturers like to keep at least a 60 day supply of cars on hand, and 90-100 days including what's in stock at dealers. And even more for popular models. Following "the great catastrophe," that took some time to build up.. So it wasn't all about spending "quality time." (Or time in quality. )

I feel the pain. Mine is awaiting a hauler in Toledo. No train for it as it is only coming to Indy. Come to think of it I have 2 cousins in Toledo; maybe it's time to visit them!

Just giving you hell Chevy! Thanks for the post though, I like learning how some of this process works.

Mine's been in their 6 days now waiting for a hauler... Does anyone know if a dealer can "red flag" a shipment to get it there faster? My salesman said they were going to do it yesterday to get it there yesterday or today. He said he would call to let me know but never did, when I pressed him on it he said that he talked to him and got it staged for shipment and it will be there the 1st like it is a major accomplishment to be only 5 days late. The funny thing is, it was staged for shipment at 9am. 2 hours before the "call" would have taken place.

Congrats! Now the waiting begins... trust me, it only gets worse.

And trust me, you won't miss the CD player. Some of the people who ordered it are already trying to figure out how to remove theirs.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Chevy,

Make sure you put a couple extra nuts in a small plastic baggy and toss em in Sno's glove box.

Mark em "Extra, not sure where they go".

Everything I've seen says it's an optional package with the Overland trim.

I'm sorry to hear this - got mine thru the same dealer as you and Lankness; my salesman escorted my Limited thru the prep process to make sure no holes were drilled in the front (I'm from a different state that doesn't have front plates). They should pay to have the front bumper replaced, not just plugged.

Yup, just takes a little snooping around by chevyboy to get things moving! Yes it's Good Friday and VOTs now shows me in F (paint) status. No change on MOTs yet.
