I hesitate to offer an opinion on it as the color shown there might be as bad a rendering as the color they show for the Granite Crystal.

Anybody seen one before ?
This is the Auburn. Like most jeep colors it is lighter in bright sunlight with a reddish hue to it.

Anyway the factory told the dealer they would "Hot Tag" it which I guess means customer is asking about it. It hit KZ two days after that not sure if that was due to the hot tag thing or if it just would have happened anyway but that's how it went down so now I have a new delivery date of next Friday. May be worth a call to your dealer to check on if it sits around in final much longer.

It is not ABnormal for a car to be painted this morning, and hit shipping status this afternoon. Actually, that's the goal!!! It doesn't take 24hrs to build anything at JNAP, and if you have a car that's sat in ANY status that long, there's something wrong with the car, or the tracking info. Again, when your see "inspection" that's means something needs to be fixed. You really think they're gonna tell you "in repair?" No..

I wish I could show you guys a pic of what/where "inspection" is, and how many cars are in it right now. But it'd do Chrysler good to just start offering plant tours to the public so you guys can get an idea of what goes on for yourself.. I hate to see you guys anxious and clinging to info, with a false perception of what it means. Kinda like when I order sumn off eBay and within hours it says, "your item has shipped!" Yea ok, bulls***!!!
Reminder of the Inspection...Thanks Chevy

The factory told the dealer that they had randomly pulled 300 Grand Cherokees for and extend quality check and that mine was one of them. He said the random quality inspections are a bit of a pain due to delivery delays but they are done for the "Greater Good". I have no way to verify this but that is what my dealer told me and was just passing this on to Buck as he seemed to be sitting in the same position

Hey 4023, that's me! What'd I win?.. Nothing? Ok great.

I thought I'd said this before, but as someone told me a week or so ago, I need to "filter" what I type so it doesn't get misconscrewed. (<<< Did I spell that right?) Anyway, inspection (I) status means two things. 1.) Of course the vehicle is being inspected. Yes. But 2.) when a vehicle sits in I status for prolonged periods of time, theres obviously something that needs to be repaired. Most of the time it's minor crap, but when repair has 50+ cars a week that need minor 2-4hr fixes, things can get backed up. There are only so many repair men, and although they work 12hrs each shift/7days, they can't keep up with the line. Once a launch phase is over, and repairs dip a bit, they usually can stay caught up. You must be trained for repair, they dont let just anybody tear apart brand new cars.. I'd like to get into repair, seeing as how it's apart of my background, but I don't have enough "seniority" so whatever..

Anyway, I think I also stated what the most common repairs are. But some cars that may get scratched because some asshole didnt put a cotton cover thingy over his belt, or accidentally bumped it with his/her watch, which also should be covered, gets sent back to paint for reprocess.. But the status never changes. Even if a car is deemed a total loss, for whatever reason, it can be left in I status until they figure out who's gonna eat the costs, and then that build is assigned a new VIN, and the process started over. There's a lot to it all.. So don't think ppl are just sitting around playing cards, getting high and drinking... Although no one has said it, I'm sure many have thought it.
