Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Seems as if I am keeping this thread alive...Chryco Info. just called, Susan.....Tried to appease me with a bunch of platitudes about so many unexpected orders, parts shortages etc. etc. I let her go on and on then asked about JS status....she stopped talking asked me where I received this info....like I am supposed to be some big dummy....when she finally got the idea that I might know what I was talking about she admitted she had no new info. She is going to look into the situation and see if she can get the plant to move my Overland out, will call back. WHY CAN THEY NOT JUST BE HONEST WITH US.
ps. She also told me new ship date 12/31/2010....ya...sure...

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I just talked to the people on the 800 number and they say mine was painted yesterday and has an expected ship date of 12/23! Now I just have to pray it doesn't get sucked into the JS black hole.

Mine's very similar to yours, Yukon. Overland 4x4, 5.7L, Brilliant Black, ACC, Saddle. If it makes it through then the issue is definitely specific to your car and not a general thing.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Not sure anyone has the real scoop. I was D1 on 12/10, last week I called the 800 number and was told the vehicle was in paint and trim, today i called and it was back to D1, though the guy on the phone maintained it was already painted.

The ship date is unchanged at 12/28--but he told me today that the ship date was "meaningless." Wonder how many more vehicles they'd get built if they spent less time updating their computer systems with meaningless information.

oh well....

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Mine is also in hold status but I was told it was be released this week and I should have by next week.

I just pray when I receive this vehicle that I can enjoy it and not be bitter at it for no finding me sooner!

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

That is good news Yukon. Hopefully my Overland will go into KZ right after yours. Looks like I won't get it until next year. So depressing, 13 weeks since order was placed.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Referring to post # 469 this thread, Susan called this morning @ 8:10 AM to let me know my Overland had been released from the plant for delivery.."KZ" I did not have the heart to tell her Milous let me know yesterday afternoon the same info....poor thing thought she was way out front so early in the morning. A day late and dollar shot...

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I talked to Susan yesterday as well. She said she would talk to the plant and find out what was going on. Today I'm KZ and supposed to go on railcar!!!!! Supposed to be delivered to dealer 1/2/11 (can't happen as they are closed Sundays in Utah). I'm so freaking happy!!! Unfortunately, I'm on trauma call for the hospital 1/2 and 1/4, so I might not be able to make it to the dealership for several days. Do I trust the wife to go pick it up....

I would bite the bullet and have the wife take delivery. Here's why-- yesterday at my dealer my sales guy and I were sitting in a vehicle playing with the radio. He sees a fellow salesman pulling up next to us in an inferno red Overland. He gets annoyed and says, "what the hell is he doing in my delivery?? That guy is beyond clueless, that Jeep belongs to my customer."

You don't want people glomming all over your new wheels. Take delivery as soon as humanly possible, IMO.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Do NOT let them play with it....grab it as soon as possible, and RUN... Talked to my guy at dealership this morning and asked him to go to the plant and pick up my Overland. He said there was nothing more that he would like to do than to get out of the dealership for 2 hours to get my Overland. He would get his commission and I would get my Overland for Christmas...Chrysler will not let them do it....that would be to simple.
