Re: Huge Shipping Delays \ Railcar shortages

My WK2 was supposedly built today, I wonder if there will be a delay getting it to a Detroit Metro area dealer...

That is exactly what I am going to do. The chrome edition seems like a rip-off if one is getting a Summit since it only includes the 2 extra items.
My sales guy even said that they would install the side steps on delivery of my vehicle and remove them if I did not like the look.

Agreed -
The Chrome Edition Group ($995) includes the following:
Chrome Exterior Mirrors
Chrome Exhaust tip (two if V8)
Chrome Tubular Side Steps
Chrome Front and Rear Door Entry Guards

But the Chrome Exterior Mirrors and Chrome Exhaust tip(s) are already included in the Overland Summit edition.
So for the same $995, you are only getting the Chrome Tubular Side Steps and Chrome Front and Rear Door Entry Guards.

They should reduce the price of Chrome Group for the Summits, as half of the package is already included in the Summit pricing.

Re: Huge Shipping Delays \ Railcar shortages

^^^ Usually then you get loaded onto a railcar since you were staged for shipment. I have seen where it said hold released then nothing for a while then another hold release without seeing that a hold was again placed on it. Tis a mystery since the information is incomplete at time.

Interesting since I was talking about ed voyles jeep. I dealt with Jeremy...you may have been the one who posted elsewhere in this forum that he was helpful (he was in fact very friendly and helpful). Not sure if there was a misunderstanding or something has changed. He showed me the computer screen and I saw 4 weeks on a couple if orders. No matter really to me as my purchase is now on hold (for unrelated issues).

Re: Huge Shipping Delays \ Railcar shortages

Hello everybody,
this is my first post in the forum, I am from Italy and ordered a new GC 3.6 Overland one month ago. All these 'rumours' about shipping issues make me a bit nervous, as the dealer promised the car will be delivered in April/May but he doesn't even know what D, D1, VIN is...
However, I have a hope: the demand of wk2 seems to be quite strong in Europe, and in Italy cars are being delivered to customers from now on. In addition, the new diesel will be delivered from June.
Don't you think this could be a reason for delaying deliveries in the US? Also considering the pricing in Europe, Chrysler is making more money here than in the US...
Don't hate me, but I really hope they are pushing to send cars in Europe!
Guido

Re: Huge Shipping Delays \ Railcar shortages

funkatation - I doubt they used a railcar since you said you're in the Detroit Metro area....so CONGRATS!!! Unlike me having to wait weeks for delivery! LOL I might get mine tomorrow if I am lucky!

Re: Huge Shipping Delays \ Railcar shortages

Re: Huge Shipping Delays \ Railcar shortages

Mine went KZ on 3/5 and made it on a railcar on 3/10 and made it to destination rail yard about 1,350 miles from Detroit on 3/17. Hopefully it doesn't take 3-4 days to reach the dealership by truck (that would be ridiculous). So the rail time was about 7-8 days (not too bad but not too fast either) but the wait to get on a rail car was 5 days (seems long to me) and hopefully only a day to the dealer (will see). I would LOVE to pick it up tomorrow.....
