Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

How come several of you guys are saying your dealer will go pick it up and my dealer says there no way to do that? I asked about them picking it up for me, it's been 20 miles away for almost a week now! Said they aren't allowed to do that, no way they can just go pick it up.....now I'm getting pissed.

My local guy said he knows the carrier guys and would have just called them and arranged (unofficially) to personally pick it up. We all know how this works in the real world. It sounds like some dealers just don't have the good relationships and/or just don't feel like extending themselves.

A personal dealer pickup may not be officially sanctioned, but it can be done.

Picked up my Overland this morning. It's even nicer than I remember. Won't get to try out the ACC until tonight, but looking forward to that.

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

Crossing my fingers that I will have my(my wifes) Overland by next Friday. Last update this morning it was on a railcar in Ohio.

Also found my dealer has a $500 certificate online for use on trade-ins. Think I'll be throwing that on the table after they give me the final price. Can't wait to see if they have some excuse as to why it's not valid.

I'm sure they are also taking on a liability risk by picking it up. Mine only has to go 1-2 miles, and my dealer knows I'm in a rental, so they are trying to get me into my car by the weekend. I'm not thrilled about someone else driving it, and possibly flooring it and redlining a new engine, but hopefully they won't do that....

Re: Build status thread for Overlands with Tech package

I would wait for it to be delivered by truck to the dealership. The absolute last thing I would want is my new Overland with 2 miles on the odo to be driven by some punk kid from the dealership. No way!

They'd be within their rights to charge you extra for that premium service. After all, didn't we all hear the engine break-in advice: "Drive it like you stole it"?

I'm sure they won't be sending some 16 year old who just got his license over to get it. There is too much at stake for all of us....

Oh my Heart!!!!! I don't know that I can take the news. Mine finally arrived at the dealer this evening. Only 16 weeks and 2 days since I placed my order. I can't wait to pick it up tomorrow night.
