Could this be true?

I have been monitoring the build status of my jeep several times daily and have been in D status since the 12 of Jan. I called the company that I placed my order with yesterday. They told me that they spoke with there Jeep rep. and he told them that the Jeep is in production and should be finished in 2 or 3 days. They also said that they were going to "Hot" the order and it would put it at the front of the line for shipping.
I told them that I have the ability to monitor the build status through this web site. They said that there info showed the same, but there rep said it was in production. And that maybe the info was not being updated.
The tracking has been updated here in the website several time since yesterday and it still shows D status.
What do you guys think?

Re: Could this be true?

Sometimes the information that's uploaded to the master system Milous uses is hours or days old. I recall looking at the shipping info on my order and it showing in the shipping yard in JAX when it showed up at the dealership. The next day the status was updated to show it getting loaded onto a truck and delivered the previous day.

However, yours isn't even in D1 status so it's highly unlikely it has gone from D to I status between Milous's updates. I think the dealer/importer is getting bad info from the rep.

Re: Could this be true?

I would be highly suspicious of their comments. But if your dealer was able to "hot" the order, let me know. My dealer is saying there is nothing they can do with Jeep when it comes to that.

Re: Could this be true?

Yeah they have no clue what their talking about...just an FYI. I dont know what this company is that your speaking of but they were basically just pulling stuff out of their asses to tell you. If your Jeep was going to be built within the next three days you would have seen a status change to atleast D1 status.

Re: Could this be true?

That is what I am thinking as well. They are telling me I am still on schedule for a April 1 delivery. But I don't see it happening. I think I need to start looking into other options because when I get back to the states I will not have a vehicle to drive.
I kind of sucks because I was really looking forward to getting a new jeep after my tour was over.

Re: Could this be true?

I am pretty sure the dealer is BSing with "HOT". My order was marked HOT and it took longer than others.

Re: Could this be true?

Could someone let me know what steps you go through to get the vehicle build information on this site? Thanks.

gmtaylor3>>> PM Milous, give him your VIN number, date of order and model. You can get the VIN number from your dealer.
