I tried, no one had what I wanted on their lots within 200 miles. Of course now I find 3 within 150 miles so go figure

I'll have mine next week so all will be good with the world

That is why I have to tip my hat off to anyone that orders a car. I hate to wait and I would want my car RIGHT NOW.

Re: I swear I'm buying off the lot next time!

At least you have that much info from Milous. I purchased one last week, "its in transit" and I was told last Tuesday that its in Philly awaiting to be put on the truck to be transported to NJ before the dealer trade is complete and brought to my dealer. Well, its been almost a week, and no updates!!!!!! Annoyed!

Re: I swear I'm buying off the lot next time!

Unreal, I talked to my dealer today and they had to call the freight dispatch to beg them to find a way to get my WK2 the last 100 miles this week. Seems they ware waiting on a full truck and some of their orders are still in transit and not expected into the yard until later this week, early next.

It took 5 days to get from Michigan to Florida and it's going to take 9 days to get from Jacksonville to DeLand (~100 miles). F'ing idiots!!!!!!!

It's not the dealer or Chrysler's fault, it's the local freight carrier they subcontract here. I suppose it's also because this is a small dealer so waiting for them to fill up (or even partially fill) a truck takes a lot longer than the mega dealers.

Re: I swear I'm buying off the lot next time!

mjw930 I feel for you, and what you're going through is one of a few reasons I almost always buy off the lot. I wonder why Jeep has not implemented a program like Chevrolet did with the Corvette where you can go to the plant to pick it up as it rolls off the line; I did that twice. Then again, there's a big difference in the scenic drive going home from Bowling Green compared to the same drive from Detroit. Well....I guess I just answered my own question. I hope you get your Jeep soon. Nine days from Jacksonville to Deland...are they pulling it there with a Prius?

Lol. That be cool if you could do that but I got a feeling the average jeep owner is not the people on this board and seldom would they want to go to Detroit to pick it up from the plant. On paper it seems cool but a whinning soccer mom who is going to spill her sippy cup a day after she gets her jeep and scuff the door sills prob as soon as she gets in couldn't give a crap where it comes from lol.

Re: I swear I'm buying off the lot next time!

We wanted a base model Overland in Red with a V6 (not one anywhere around us) and almost ordered one but I was told it was on restriction and might not see it for 3-4 months - so I opted for the dark charcoal on the lot - got a good deal too.
