I really do appreciate Chevy's info, and recognize he's going out on a limb to tell us as much as he has. But something just doesn't add up, Chrysler needs to step up here and be forthcoming with its customers.

Couldn't agree more and so would every one of you if your car had been in FI for weeks.

Dealers can also see and confirm status, but apparently cannot get an explanation. In today's world of information, I think it's poor business practice. And while I'm happy for others for whom it has worked out, I'm about at the end of my rope. My current company vehicle is way over on miles and out of warranty. We're going to be forced to go another route. And, unfortunately due to fleet discount rules, we're told we can't just trade for a JGC on a dealer's lot.

Sorry for the grumbling. I recognize this is a personal, and fist world, problem. I'll shut up now,

KJF
I'm not saying that I wouldn't want an explanation if my car was in inspection for a few weeks, far from it. I'm just saying that would probably wont get a true answer from Chrysler on what is going on, I don't think any manufacturer would do that. VOTS is almost useless as it says mine is still in Paint but yet in MOTS it is in Toldeo, OH. Is your company car having problems that they need to get rid of it so fast, just curious? It is a forum, you can rant like the others.. We all listen and try to make sense (sometimes..hehe)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

VOTS is totally useless. My Baby was born and KZ'd yesterday and on the train coming to PaPa today!!! All provided by MOTS!!! VOTS says my Baby is still scheduled to be built!!!!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

It's my guess that the VOTS folks don't work on the weekend, like the guys on the line do.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Jacko
We split up a pair of twins. Yours was born 10 hours after my Baby. Both of us have Billet Silver Overland 4x4s with V6s on the way with the same expected arrival date 4-18-13. One goes to PA & one goes to SC. Be sure and treat your Baby right as mine is a close Twin!!!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

So ... I'm sure it's painfully obvious by now, but I haven't heard a thing from my dealer yet. D'oh. I guess I'm not surprised.

The 2014 has two clips, one on each side of the mat while the 2011 only had one clip in the middle. However it still fits and I am just letting it ride for now. The 2nd row and rear cargo liner fit just fine.

Also, I'd rather have these than have a buttload of dirt collect into the carpet and carpeted floormats. Just a pet peeve of mine.

I had to wash off one of the rear floormats in our Summit on the second day we owned it b/c my wife was too busy on her phone to help our son into the car and he spilled an entire pink Danimal on the floormat and rear carpet. Glad we got Black interior....

You are and thank you. I could see it being black or brown (Jeep Brown) but didn't think of indigo. That's nice.

So the black Weathertech it is.
