Manual Passenger Seat---$175-Credit

Why are so many WK2's coming in to dealer lots with a manual passenger seat and a $175- credit?

Because they have a lot in inventory ? I have a manual passenger seat in mine, is the only one that folds flat and I have needed the extra length before.

But is there even an option to order as a customer? Seems to be just dealer inventory orders. Thought maybe there might be a parts shortage. Although I know some prefer it for the extra space option.

Re: Manual Passenger Seat---$175-Credit

Did you notice the missing power seat credits on a specific trim level?

Re: Manual Passenger Seat---$175-Credit

I was told its a part shortage, they a holding power seats for higher trim levels.
I did a search across NYC area dealers and it looks as follows:

99% Limited with 23H Package on 18" will have manual seat.

90% Limited with 23H Package on 20" +/- CD player will have manual seat.

Those 1% and 10% are spoken for already I couldn't find one available.

all of those cars were ordered back in Dec13/Jan14 and are just now arriving.

Your color choice will also play into this.

Seems to be?

It's listed as an option when you build a Limited on Jeep.com. And it does show -$175.

I would have opted for this on my Overland to get the fold flat seat.

Re: Manual Passenger Seat---$175-Credit

Hey, we're about to run out of seats!

OK, and?

We will have to stop The LineŽ!

No! What is the issue?

Not enough power seats!

Run The LineŽ with manual seats and issue a credit!

WHAT A GREAT IDEA!

IF this is the case (and it wouldn't surprise me...) Chrysler did the same thing a while back with the 2011 Charger and 300. Not enough 8.4" screens so they ran the 4.3" screen with a $1,000 credit...
