Manufacturing Delay?

So, I was looking at my tracking for my Overland on this site that Milous is doing for many of us. I noticed there are about 21 vehicles that went "D1" on 3/11/2011. All are to be at the dealer the last week of March/first week of April. That being said, status hasn't changed in 10 days. Makes me wonder if there is an issue with manufacturing? They are all Overland or Summits.

Thoughts?

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

The delivery dates always change after the trucks are built. If you look at all of us who went D1 on the 11th take notice of D1-built time frames. Looks to be average of 12-14 days after D1 lately. Im hoping to see ours built around the 24th.

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

I cancelled my order on 3-18-11, on 3-19 I located one almost like my order at another dealership and purchased it. I am one happy camper.

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

from jeep sent today



Dear Spiro:

Thank you again for your email regarding the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the delayed response to your
email. Because of the public's current interest in Chrysler Group and
our new products, we are unable to respond as promptly as we would like.

When you place a new factory order for any new Chrysler Group LLC
vehicle, the typical delivery is approximately 10-12 weeks. Please be
advised that this timing should be taken as an approximation only. Based
upon vehicle demand and parts availability, this delivery time can be
extended to accommodate these circumstances. In regards to the 2011 Jeep
Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4 models, the demand for this trim level is
very high due to such features as the Quadra-Lift Air Suspension and the
Nappa Leather Saddle Brown Interior.

Re: Manufacturing Delay?

I posted this in another thread but this one may be more appropriate:


So does anyone know the rhyme or reason on the production order? My coworker ordered an identical overland 4x4 black on black v6 in early feb and is taking delivery this weekend. I ordered an identical car about two weeks later and have been sitting in D status ever since. I see others who have ordered later than me went into D1 already. Mine is pretty basic so there's not a whole lot of parts to be waiting on. Some dealers claim that their orders are processed quicker, is there any truth to this that anyone knows about. It's my understanding that once it gets a VIN, that means it's been allocated to that dealer. I just can't figure out why they are not processed in the order received! Anyone have any info to stop me from going crazy.
