Thumbs down Cancel Order?

Hi All,

First off, I know many people have waited much longer than I have. You all are saints!

My vehicle is gathering dust in the train yard and not moving. I asked my dealership what we can do about and have not heard back from them in 4 or 5 hours.

I am seriously considering canceling if I don't have a phone call tomorrow by 2pm. Spending over 40 G's for a car I have higher expectations.

Greatly appreciate any thoughts you guys /gals have.

Drumandfly

Re: Cancel Order?

I waited 7 weeks. I was about to do what you are thinking of. I took a day and called every dealership under the sun until I found one that they had on the lot. Gave a deposit over the phone amd told my original dealership to shove it. Let's just say I couldn't be happier. DO NOT CANCEL your order you will kick yourself 2 minutes later. What state are you in because my original dealership is expecting the one I had ordered in a few more weeks?

The fact that you did not hear from them in 4-5 hours it is not a reason ... probably they have no update ... my former dealer will get pissed if I called him once a week ... (not sure why Chrysler tolerates such dealers ...)
My order did not get to D1 status in the time yours is almost delivered ... My order did not have an update for 3 weeks after the car was built and lost in Elton yard ... I am not a saint and abandoned my order after 11 weeks of waiting ... because found same car with a better deal ... It is a great car and very proud I bought it ...

In the end it is your decision, it does not matter our opinion ... you should be happy with your decision and live with it ...

Your vehicle was ordered on 9/04, just under 6 weeks ago. It was built just 9 days ago...

In my many decades of buying new vehicles the wait time has always run between 5-10 weeks, with the average being around 6 weeks.

At 6 weeks in you are right in the ballpark, and really not bad considering this is a all-new vehicle.

Hang in there, it will be here before you know it .

Re: Cancel Order?

It's your decision, and you have to do what's best for you.

I'm into my 13th week since I placed the order. I've already told my dealer that if it doesn't look like I'll have my GC before mid November (before our first snow), he should start looking at getting one from another dealer's inventory. Unfortunately, my dealer is in the same boat as me, not really knowing when the GC will be built or delivered.

Every once in a while I want to "screw Chrysler" and cancel my order due to the delays and lack of communication. But I try to stay calm and not get carried away by my emotions. I really like what the GC has to offer, so I'm waiting it out. No pain, no gain, I guess.

Like you, it's frustrating not knowing exactly when I'll get the GC while knowing that others who placed their orders for the same vehicles after me have already received their GC's.

Thanks Everyone. I will sleep on it.

Milous: Thanks for the insider insight. Do the car carriers deliver to the dealerships on Saturday's?

Re: Cancel Order?

what is a good time frame that you guys expect these to be built, shipped and delivered? Why not just search the inventory on Jeep.com and find the one you want in the first place?

Re: Cancel Order?

Scottina06,

First off, I like your avatar... that is a great act.

No one had the car that I wanted, so that was the issue at the time.

My recent experiences have been awful. I had a negotiated deal with one dealer, who after I put a down payment on jacked the price up almost 1000 dollars. I got my deposit back.

The second time around, has probably been equally stressful. For me personally, it not necessarly the actual number of days, but people not giving honest answers. If there is a snake in the grass, I can figure it out. As I am sure you are aware, it is amazing what people write in an email, and it comes back to bite them. That is the case here.

I am not sure what I am going to do, but I will make a decision in the near future.

Get rid of the bad people in the Jeep network and you guys will do great with this new vehicle on the market.

Drumandfly

Re: Cancel Order?

oh no bro...Im on your side! The Overland I want is kinda rare too...but i did find a few within 200 miles. It is hard to be patient when you buiy something. I guess its good we dont have to pay and then wait. Some of these guys would commit suicide....LOL

Re: Cancel Order?

well i can pnly say be a little more patient as its gonna be worth it ..

in retrospect back in 07 when i ordered my charger - i ordered it on the 2nd of January and received it on the 25th of June.. and it was well worth the wait and i'm sure the WK2 will be worth it as well .
But if you can find the same car for a better or same price then def go for it.
