Re: European Launch?

Thank you Milous,
I can't answer to your privat message because I'am "to young" ;-) at this site (I need 10 posts before I can post private mesages).

here my answer on this way:

The dealer says that is no chance to get the VIN for a ordered car! After work I will ask the dealer again. What I can do is to is to write down the VIN from the GC in the showroom. It's a black Overland Hemi (european version).
Or other question: What must my dealer do to get a VIN? My dealer is the official Chrysler-germany-dealer in Berlin. I think he should have enough rights and connections to get the VIN. Maybe he need only the info which application is to use.

Thank for your help Milous

Das sind alles Parallel-Importe aus den USA oder Canada die von (Import) Händlern selbst importiert werden und nicht vom offiziellem Importeur des Landes kommen und dadurch auch eine (meistens) minderwertige Garantie und/oder Service Leistungen haben.

VIN's are assigned once a vehicle has been "scheduled". This can happen from several days of the order being placed up to several months after it is placed. The average time frame here in North America is 3 weeks, not sure what it is for Europe. If your dealer placed your order in mid-December then a VIN should probably be assigned before too much longer.

Your dealer should be able to tell you the status of the vehicle even if a VIN has not been assigned - he has this information. If the VIN has not yet been assigned, then the status should show as "B_" or "C" as shown below:

BA - BA new order that hasn't been checked/approved BB – fleet order only – review by Bid Department
BD – special equipment processing
BE – edit error – coding error which must be corrected before the order can be considered for scheduling
BG – order has passed edit but cannot be considered for scheduling
BG F – finance hold – automatic cancellation after 15 days
BG B – model or option hold / build out hold
BG L – material restriction hold
BG M – material hold (fleet)
BX – good order, available for scheduling
C – tentative schedule
D – firm schedule: serial number is assigned.
D1 – gateline: plant has sequenced the unit for production, estimated ship date assigned

A VIN is assigned when vehicle goes to "D" status.

Euro production did indeed start back on 9/20.

These are the silver and black Overlands that came to Europe in November.

Es soll EU Importe sein? Sie haben dann auch zum Bsp. die Parktronic Sensoren an der Front..

Nein, meistens USA Importe. Schau mal den Tacho an, die haben meistens MPH GROSS und kmh klein und keine Werksgarantie.

Noch ein wichtiger Unterschied: Die europäischen Varianten haben vorne eine stärkere Bremsanlage, dass erkennt man an den deutlich größeren Bremsscheiben. Dann noch die, per Knopfdruck einklappbaren Spiegel.

Um auf die Schnelle die Autos zu unterscheiden helfen vorne die Parksensoren. Oder halt die vorderen Bremsscheiben. Sind die nicht deutlich größer als die hinteren ist es ein amerikanischer.

Wer mit einem schwarzen oder silbernen Overland mit schwarzer Innenaustattung glücklich ist, kann sicher sofort mit einer europäischen Variante aus der Soft-Launch-Phase nach Hause fahren.

@fastnet: Eigentlich wäre alles soweit nachvollziehbar bis auf die Meldung von die Aussagen der CH-Händler.
Die Soft-Launch-Autos wurden September gebaut, waren November hier. Ab da konnte man bestellen. Die Bestellungen reihen sich dann ganz normal ein.
Viele unserer amerikanischen Freunde warten ja auch locker 8 Wochen und mehr bis das Auto in Produktion geht. Dementsprechend müssten die ersten bestellten Autos für Europa Ende Januar oder Anfang Februar gebaut werden. Das ergibt automatisch ein Produktionsloch von 4 Monaten (Okt-Jan). Was hier uns, oder gerade mich, nervt, sind die schwammigen Infos. Das war aber schon immer so, auch vor dem WK2. Das ist auch sicher nicht so sehr die Schuld der einzelnen Händler, die würden bestimmt auch dichter an der Quelle sitzen wollen.
Was auf alle Fälle merkwürdig bleibt, ist die Aussage der CH-Händler. Vielleicht bezieht die sich mehr auf die Diesel-Produktion? Der eigentliche Verkauf mit Werbung usw. wird ja scheinbar erst mit dem Diesel losgehen.

Wenn ich Fiat-Chrysler wäre, würde ich jedenfalls im Augenblick auch den Ball flach halten und nur die paar verrückten (wie mich) mit den Benzinern beglücken und gut ist. Mit dem Diesel müsste dann die Werbetrommel losgehen mit allem drum und dran. Nur so bekommt man Jeep wieder zurück in die Köpfe der Leute.

Re: European Launch?

Also die Limited die mit "aus EU-Produktion" angeboten werden haben alle vorne die Parksensoren. Man kann sie ja teilweise sogar beim Jeep Händler kaufen, die Importieren die selber. Die offiziellen Overland Preise sind jenseits von gut und böse.
