Bummed, 11 days and counting since my jeep got off loaded from the rail car.

It looks like I will not be getting my Jeep when I arrive back in the states. It got unloaded from the rail car on the 19th of March (only 150 miles from the dealership)and has not moved since. I will be returning back to the U.S. after a 3 year tour and I was really looking forward to getting in my new Jeep when I arrived. I think that if they ship in tomorrow or maybe Friday early it might be ready in time but I am not holding my breath. At least they will put me in a rental until it arrives.

That is so unfair! They should make special arrangements to ensure you get to drive it before you return. btw, THANK YOU for your service!

Man, that sucks. First, thanks for keeping us free and safe. What can we do to help, if anything?

If the dealer is going to put you in a rental, then why don't they just go and get it? It's only 150 miles away.

Ok, called my dealer....it CAN be done...I mean, go and get the vehicle, but in his words, "it takes an act of Congress."....but it can be done. Let's push this thing hard and get this Jeep here!

Angry Re: Bummed, 11 days and counting since my jeep got off loaded from the rail car.

First off thanks for all the support!

The issue is I purchased this vehicle via a military overseas buying program. and it gets delivered to where ever I arrive back to in the states. So it is not a true dealer. They select the nearest dealer to where I will be and that dealer does a courtesy delivery. The the dealer I am going through is not very helpful, probably because they are not getting anything out of the deal.

That's not smart of the dealer not to be very helpful to you considering they could be trying to accomodate you to help earn you as a customer for their service department.

Re: Bummed, 11 days and counting since my jeep got off loaded from the rail car.

Just got off the phone with the dealer, I talked to another person. He turned out to be an ex-Navy guy. He made a few calls while I was on the phone and it is on it's way to the dealership. Should be ready tomorrow and I will pick it up Saturday when we arrive back to the states.
What a difference just talking to a different person makes.
