Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I just don't get it. Looks like some ordered after I did and they already have a delivery date, like Plasticar getting his within 6 weeks, I am now at 9 weeks and still in D status.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I'm trying to figure out if everyone that went backwards in status for a week or two had the tech package ordered? Maybe they ran short on parts or discovered a problem that had to be addressed before they put us back in the que? Maybe guys like IndyBob and Foggy are all getting defective ones....

After day 1, I say WAIT for the Tech Pkg. It's cool! Everybody is different, so I'm sorry if you wait and aren't impressed. The blind spot monitoring is nice... I also had somebody slam on their brakes to make a quick turn and I got a cool warning.

It's been raining all day so pics to come later. I had all the salespeople and customers drooling at the dealership today.

Bottom line.. the WK2 is freaking awesome!

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Glad you like it!
I'm worried that the front collision warning will beep everytime a car slows down in front of me. How sensitive is it? I want it to warn me when someone does exactly what you described, in case I'm looking down at the radio or something at the time, but don't want it beeping everytime I come to a traffic light....

I drove 300 miles today and it only happend once. I was on a country road, speed limit was 55. Dude didn't see his turn and slammed on his brakes. It wasn't a normal condition. I wasn't tailgating but I was a couple seconds behing him. It wasn't annoying at all and it was very brief. I'm happy to have it. I doubt it goes off very often.

It was probably designed for all the texters out there

Looks like they are building all of ours at about the same time! Hopefully we will be lucky with the over all quality of the batch!

Sure hope you guys going forward and backwards get moving soon. Seems strange. As far as I can tell mine should be at the dealer Friday. I am hoping to pick it up the first of the week.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

We're building them as fast as we can. They DO physically exist (some of them at least) and they are coming. This vehicle is worth the wait. Now just grow some patience.
