Buy a 144 bottle case of these and hand them to the dealer telling them to get busy...

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

Thanks to all for your helpful suggestions... this forum is helping me get over my disappointment. Magic floormats are a nice option which I had not previously considered. Also maybe I could get it repainted so it is Dark Mineral Charcoal Grey... it would be nice to have such a unique WK2!

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

having owned 2 black vehicles previously, I would not take another dark colored vehicle if they gave it to me.
not sure what you can do if you have no proof of what you originally ordered.

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

Yeah, I was definitely thinking about the wash factor when I ordered the grey. I think a lot of the WK2 colors look "like black" a lot of the time if it is cloudy or in dim lighting. Blackberry, Dark Charcoal, Brilliant Black and even Natural Green are extremely dark colours. They look amazing in the sun when clean but all have got a tendency to show the dirt more than the lighter colours. Nothing against the darker colours but it was one thing I considered when choosing the grey.

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

I like dark colors that show the dirt. That way I know when its dirty, I like a clean vehicle. When a vehicle is dirty its dirty weather it shows the dirt or not. It's your Jeep and you should get the color you want though.

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

Andy, do you have the Bill of Sale? This should contain the model, options and colors (along with the purchase price). If so, this should be enough documentation. Some dealers will provide the build sheet once the order has been entered but it shouldn't be required.

Assuming the vehicle comes in as Dark Charcoal, unless you have a one-off build that would be difficult for them to turn, they should be open to ordering another vehicle. If the dealer is difficult to work with ask for your deposit back and go to another (dealer). But as general practice all deposits are refundable. Special cases aside.

It's a personal decision. Some don't mind a color or option change provided there's a gift to be received. For me, I would stick to my first choice.




Regards,
NHman

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

The Dark Charcoal will be a lil easier to take care of than a true 'Black' -- The problem is that since it is a pearl coat -- you'll starting getting more prismatic swirls in it sooner than later. (Which drive me ape shit)

BUT! If you are a 'Car Care' kinda person, it's noting a rotary won't buff out once a year -- vs twice a year on a true black... And it'll Look... SPECTACULAR...

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

See if you like the color when it comes in (not a bad colour anway), otherwise order a new so you are 100% happy with it.

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

There are Mineral Gray 2011 Grand Cherokee's on dealer lots all over the place. Have them track one down with your interior color and options from another lot and deliver it to you.

Re: Factory Order....Wrong Colour...!!??!!

I hope everything works out for OP. BUT i had expirienced low life crap from a sales manager for company that does not exist nome ( know for selling microwave safe car, name rhymes with harpoon). I put 3k down, was waiting for the car for over 7 months from time i got on a waiting list. BEHOLD car arrivies FINALLY! it has a slush box, no man-pedal! I confronted the dealer ( i had the built sheet). well apperently when 5 speed was a delay, dealer switched to an automatic and a guy off a street offered money above MSRP for my car. I was ready to go postal after dealer told me.....uhuh i have to wait another 11 months, since allocation for the current production year is spoken for, I was #3, now i will be like #23. oh yeah to make it even worth I was responsiable for 4 price increases ( originally i was locked with the price when i put the order through)... not a lot of money ( like 1500 increase) but i was fed up with " one price for all" BS. so I demanded my 3k on the spot and within a week got myself another toy. So lets hope that you are not dealing with similar situation.
I like darker color ( but for instance Dealer could have given me 20k off for inferno red and I would probably walked, or if i felt like-drove it directly to the body shop to be repainded to non-commie color)
