Yee-haa! My Summit CRD order went to D1 on MOTS with estimated delivery of 9/12. That is MUCH sooner than I would have expected considering it was ordered on 8/9. Does that estimated delivery date include shipping to the dealer? 4-5 weeks doesn't seem like much time to schedule, build, inspect and ship a new vehicle. I was just hoping it would be here by my 60th BD on 10/3. We'll see how things actually roll out...

When did your status change? I'm trying to keep from looking for updates every 2 hours but it is difficult.

Vtail, they can built many hundreds of them each day...so that 4-5 weeks isn't surprising.

Congrats. MOTS still showing mine is pre release, but VOTS shows it has been in the paint stage for 3 days. Either I am getting one premium paint job, or my guess it is probably close to done.

I checked it early this morning, then again this evening so it changed some time today.

2. The input sequence is 6, 2, 1, 2, and then your phone number, then 1. This brings you to an operator who can give you details on the status of your order. A complete list of Order Status Codes is shown in the table below.

Have you tried to give these people a call?

Congregations. I hope you get your diesel earlier than expected. And happy early birthday.

My plan is to send out my exact specs and ask for them to meet a specific price (5% or 6% below invoice since I've seen that done more than once). If they can't meet the price, they can suggest their best offer.

I'll report back on how it goes (hopefully by the end of next week). Let the games begin!
After e-mailing 10-12 dealerships in the area, I had a couple dealerships that actively engaged with me at the 5.0% below invoice price that I had offered. Both dealerships were owned by the same parent company, which I guess has a pretty aggressive approach to pricing.

Although I didn't have the price confirmed by them in writing (these SoCal dealers are REALLY averse to putting things in writing), I walked into the dealership on Friday afternoon and had my order placed withing 45 minutes. I had mentioned my affiliate rewards number to them in my e-mail, but when I went into the dealership they ended up shuffling me around to a couple sales people and the affiliate rewards number got lost in the shuffle. They essentially had agreed to 4% below invoice and "weren't willing to budge". I probably could have worked them down to 5% without mentioning the Affiliate program, but I don't want to be a d*ck when I already know I'm getting a good deal, so I just let the Affiliate Rewards number do the rest of the leg work.

For what it's worth, here are the details of my deal:

Limited 4x4 V6
ORA1
Lux II
Trailer Tow Group
8.4AN (RA4) radio

Negotiated price (pre-TTL): $39,600
Out the door: $43,800

That includes about $95 in doc fees, but I was OK with that, given the pre-TTL price. Plus, their computer was showing ORA1 as being a no-charge option, so that sweetened the deal a bit. I asked them - "are you sure this isn't $530?" and they said "No, it looks like there have been some pricing changes." Not sure if it's a real change in pricing or just a glitch in their system that day, but that effectively gave me another 1% discount from what I was expecting. My price was 5.0% below their calculated invoice price, but more than 6% below what I was expecting the invoice price to be.

If anyone still needs a dealership in SoCal, I'm happy to share the contact info for my dealer. They indicated that the same deal could be had on a diesel (since I was considering that option as well). Now the wait begins!



P.S. Thank you to EVERYONE on the forum for all of the information that helped inform this purchase (from options to pricing). This forum is an invaluable source of info / comfort. Thanks!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

ClarkKent, your dealer is leaving money on the table if they are ignoring your affiliate code...they get 2% for putting that number on the order! Sheesh... (Unless they are a dealer that doesn't participate in the program)

Actually, they didn't end up ignoring it. My only point was that they were willing to go 4% below even without an affiliate code. I used the affiliate code to get down to my desired 5% below price point.

In a bit of an embarrassing moment for them, neither my salesman nor the sales manager knew about the affiliate program. They had both joined Chrysler just a few months ago, so they weren't familiar with all of the ins and outs of the process yet. I basically educated them about the Affiliate Program and they were happy to take advantage of it.
