Re: Help! Order Change at D1...

I live in a small town, so not sure that is an option. When I ordered it, he said it was the first one he had ordered. I went to see him this morning and asked if there was anything he could do. He said he would try.

Would still be happy with the V6, but would prefer the Hemi.

Thanks,

Re: Help! Order Change at D1...

Cancel the order and get the V8 you want. You aren't obligated to purchase the vehicle you ordered until you sign the paperwork the day of delivery. You should get your deposit back as well unless you can order the V8 with the same dealer; that would be ideal.

Re: Help! Order Change at D1...

Your dealer may be able to swap with another dealer, if you can find a Jeep close to what you want elsewhere. The more the deal was closer to invoice, the less they like to do that as it costs some cash to send drivers. I've heard of one dealer that allowed the buyer to drive the vehicle to the other dealer, swap into the second vehicle, and returned back to finish the paperwork.. saved the dealer some cash but there are insurance issues.

A lot of buyers don't go through with the deal, changing circumstances, unable to get decent finance, change of mind, whatever.

Re: Help! Order Change at D1...

I ordered on good faith, with no deposit and no signature. I have a great relationship with my dealer and all the guys there, this will be my 3rd vehicle, with them, in the last 8 years. He even loans me his vehicle anytime I'm in for service. So, couldn't really do that.

My lease is only up the beginning of August, so may have him try and sell it. But, then I really don't want to buy a demo! Will let it play out and see what happens. V6 should be here in less than two weeks.

Thanks,

I asked him if he could check with the central distribution center, to see if they could find another dealer to take it.

I actually picked up my Ram 1500 from another dealer back in 2005. Wasn't a problem. It had the Hemi and I didn't want some young guy picking it up. It was a 3 hour drive. Best 3 hour drive I've ever had!

Thanks,

Since don't need it until August, you might be able to get a 2012.
