Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

Hey guys, I don't know what's up with this company that makes these great vehicles. Their ability to track an order and give reliable information on status is from the stone age!

I ordered a 5.7L Limited with Mineral Grey & Colision Avoidance Pkg. on Sept 20. These 2 items were late availibility. I called the customer service center on Oct 8 and Oct 15 for a status based on my VON. There was no VIN yet, but I was assured, without a doubt on both calls that Mineral Grey and Col. Avd. package was in production on the Assy. line.

Today I called again and was told by Anthony that these items will not be in production until sometime in November and I should expect delivery in 10 to 12 weeks from date of order. When I ordered the Jeep I was told by my dealer that it would be 6 to 8 weeks.

Funny thing! This is 2010 and one would expect relibable information on a $45K purchase. I have been treated better as a customer on a purchase of a $200 cell phone! WTF?

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

Just put it this way

If you do not have a VIN

Your Jeep is nowhere near being close to production.

Even if you DO get a VIN

A bunch more crap to go through.

Have to find, make available and sequence parts.

Then what if there's a parts shortage or another delay?

Something to think about.

This is a LOT more complicated than most people think.

Gosh, do you think perhaps that the salesman didn't want you to walk away and order from another manufacturer that could provide what you wanted at the present time??? Milous just posted the straight scoop, so judge your delivery from the middle of November production start. Seems like a New Year's present to yourself.

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

Yeah, looks like you're right about New Year delivery. At this point I can take for gospel what Milous said about production dates. Depending on who you talk to, Chrysler is nothing but BS by mis-informed individuals.

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

these people are sitting in call centers and only have info given to them or 2nd hand info. Its been stated all in this forum that the tech pack doesnt start production till the middle of Nov. Most of the time they are just giving a general or average time to delivery. Check Milous' thread and you will see that most 2011's that are ordered take on average 8.5 weeks to arrive.

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

new to this board and really appreciate all the great info. Two questions - 1) i really think i want the mineral gray, but I also want frost (tan) interior. so i have to get a Limited to get frost/tan since Laredo's only come with graystone interior?
2) then, if 1) is true, anyone with the Limited and black carpet have observations about whether you can actually keep it clean (dark exteriors are tough to keep clean and i presume interior carpet would be also).

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

Dark carpets will hide dirt better than a light colored carpet. Opposite of paint, which has a shine to it.

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

Well dark carpets do not show stains, but will show dirt (sand) very easy. You can see if one spec gets on the carpet.

I could have white carpets and be happy because I make sure I do not spill or track in mess. However the black carpet bugs the hell out of me since I have to vacuum once a day, LOL

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

Yes, I ment stains. Stains will ruin the look of a carpet more than anything, I think. For that, darker is better....

Re: Can we place order on Mineral Grey now

I stand corrected. The color "Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl" has been part of the color palet since 2009. 2008 was "Brilliant Black", which is what I have on my '08 Overland. "Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl" is much different than the "Brilliant Black".
