Code for Quick Production of a New Vehicle Due to Lemon Law Buyback

I have seen it mentioned a few times on this forum from a few of you who had Lemon Law buybacks, where your replacement vehicle was quickly put into production and shipped out.
I don't have a GC but a '14 Ram V-6 that Chrysler is buying back soon because of a couple issues with the cruise control system/transmission interaction, and the poor construction of my pickup bed.
If you had a quick build on a replacement GC, where did your dealer obtain the code and how soon did you get your new GC.
I am trying to order my replacement Ram, but can't yet due to dealer allocation issues. When the allocation opens I would like to get the new Ram built and shipped faster than he normal 4 to 6 weeks I am being told it takes.
Any help would be appreciated at this point.

Re: Code for Quick Production of a New Vehicle Due to Lemon Law Buyback

Hm... perhaps some such code exists, but I'd be surprised.. I certainly do not know..

given all the sequencing and coordination that is needed to build a vehicle, it'd be hard to build one much faster than they do under normal circumstances..

Re: Code for Quick Production of a New Vehicle Due to Lemon Law Buyback

Having ordered a few vehicles, I can say that 4-6 weeks is about as fast as you can get one. Even 4 weeks is pushing it and depends on the factory already having the basic chasis on the line (2/4 door, 6'/8' bed, engine, color).
Subaru was the quickest I ever got at 5 weeks. Sad part is it fell off the carrier when it wrecked in a snow storm. The 2nd one came 4 weeks later but was already in production when it was diverted to my dealer allocation.

The Ram I am getting rid of was 12 days from order date until it arrived at my dealer. I know it was built for me by the window sticker, the wheel option, and the production date. It was not a truck they grabbed from somewhere else and diverted to me.

Re: Code for Quick Production of a New Vehicle Due to Lemon Law Buyback

I'd be almost willing to bet that they had a dealer order in for exactly what you wanted and they put your name on that order as the end-customer on the day you ordered. You benefited greatly by not having to wait the normal factory order interval.

Stranger things have happened, but...two weeks isn't a realistic time frame for any manufacturer in the industry...

Re: Code for Quick Production of a New Vehicle Due to Lemon Law Buyback

Edit- Jim beat me to post,
Pensfan, No, but it could have been on the line and 60% done when it was diverted to get different accessories/ options/ interior. I can almost say that there is no way that, in 12 days, a vehicle went from order to completion without a diversion on the line.

It's called a Priority Build Code and its 4KH. My lemon replacement was ordered 6/18/15 and showed up at dealer 7/15/15 so the priority status helped, at that particular time, BUT is sat outside on dealer lot for 3 months serving as target practice for birds with purple poop....dealer would not keep inside nor keep poop off ISG, IMHO, is very disorganized, they changed handlers on me 5 times always causing another delay. I finally gave up on them and converted to full repurchase. Finalizing it as we speak and trying to decide if I will pick up a '15 SRT deal or order a '16 SRT.....I'm happy tho as an SRT is what I should have bought in the first place...I'm a HP junkie at heart.

I'm not sure how the whole process works. Since I ordered a 3.6 and 17" wheels on a Big Horn, which is not something dealers are ordering around Pittsburgh, something hastened the order. My dealer had one 3.6 Ram on their lot when I ordered mine, and have not ordered any 3.6's since then. There are very few around this are also.

'It's called a Priority Build Code and its 4KH.'
This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks very much!

I am waiting for a final detail to be worked out between the Pa Lemon Law attorney and Chrysler before all of the settlement papers start coming from Chrysler. I don't want to lose my truck without the replacement being in and the priority code should help. I don't expect everything to finally settle until late December.
I actually can't even place an order yet as Crew Cabs can't be ordered until the next dealer allocation opens. Also, I want the basic black clear coat instead of Brilliant Black, and that is on restriction also, plus it is a $450 option. It is stupid that metallic paint is standard and basic black is an extra cost option.
Sorry to hijack the GC forum, but actually I am thinking of getting '16 GC sometime next year as a replacement for my '08 Charger. I want to see if all the PUG improvements help the transmission issues before I jump into it.

This makes sense and follows in the same logic of how the salesman explained it to me last week.

We can't even get black clear coat on a GC and I would probably choose that color if it was an option.

[QUOTE=jgc4ever;1232012]We can't even get black clear coat on a GC and I would probably choose that color if it was an option.

It should be a standard color in every car or truck Chrysler makes. On the Charger it is called Pitch Black and is not an extra cost option like on the trucks. but it is the same PX8 paint code Chrysler has used for years.
Brilliant Black to me looks almost the same as the Max Steel in the sunlight. At my dealer, a Brilliant Black Ram and a Max Steel Ram were parked side by side. The angle of the sun made them look like the same color. That doesn't happen with the black clear coat.
My new truck will be my 6th black car or truck. None of the previous 5 had any metallic in the paint. I sure hope my new one doesn't, although if the restriction isn't lifted, I will have no choice but to go with Brilliant Black. Then I will have to get my fender flares repainted to match the truck. It's either spend $400 for the Black Clear Coat or the same amount for the flare repaint. I would prefer the 1st choice.
