Re: Manufacturing Delay?

Ordered a Laredo with Quadralift in February. Should have been here by now but it isn't. Heard August mentioned in the back office last time I complained to my dealer (Sydney, Australia).

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

Can anyone offer some insight on the following???

My Overland was originally suppose to arrive on May 14th. About a week ago ETA changed to the 16th. But, no way it will be here tomorrow (16th), as it takes 9-13 days for transportation. On the 13th it was moved to yet another yard/plant, in Toledo. When a vehicle receives KZ (mine was KZ on May 6th) status, is the Jeep complete or is it shipped to another location for Saddle Leather, QL or other options? I checked non-Overland models, that my dealer has ordered and they went straight from the Jefferson plant to Windsor, Ontario and on to the dealer.

Thanks,

P.S. Dealer told me 2 months when I ordered (April 18th). But, ETA given from Chrysler was May 14th.

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

I dunno, seems to vary all over the area, but most stop at Toledo's Walbridge yard, yours is at the Ottawa yard which is near the Canadian National line, perhaps to get hooked up to a CN train there.

If you are KZ your Jeep should be complete (otherwise it would be in storage somewhere), the only thing they send off campus, I think, is the chrome package.

The attached are the Toledo rail yards.

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

Thanks for that ColdCase! I saw the CN rail cars at the Ottawa Yard, on Google Maps. Hope my Jeep finds a front row seat!

When they get stuck, it is often because of back ups loading rail cars. They are looking for a place to store the Jeep until they can load it on a train, and sometimes the Jeep just disappears for awhile before turning up when its scheduled to be shipped. Less often the Jeep is delayed because of a missing part.

I hear there have also been recent issues with the tracking system. So yeah, there are plenty of things to worry about, but 99% of the time its just normal business. I've seen two Jeeps rolling off the line right after each other, one gets right on a train, the other goes into storage for a week. About all you can say is that it is unpredictable.... and if you check over in other chrysler forums, like the challenger ones, you see about the same story all over.
Mine is the beige interior. Thanks!
