Unhappy Should I be upset? Overland…

So, I ordered my Overland back on July 20th. Finally built on September 28th and shipped the same day. My Overland has now been sitting at an auto depot less than 3 hours from my home for the past two weeks!

Should I be upset?!


My dealership is amazingly attentive, and this will be my third Jeep purchase through them, but I can’t help but think they could have easily had my Overland at the dealership by now.

Oh, and here’s the kicker! Another dealership less than an hour away has the identical Overland in stock! I’ll remain loyal, but DAMN! I want my Overland!

Re: Should I be upset? Overland…

This same thing happened to another member, and upon threatening to go elsewhere, his dealer miraculously had the vehicle at his lot in two days. Press the dealer, no matter what your past affiliation is. They should be looking out for your interests, not their own!

Ask your dealer if they can do a dealer trade, and/or press them to get the ball rolling.

Re: Should I be upset? Overland…

all the dealers Ive talked to said dealers will NOT trade their Overlands. I would press them with the fact that another dealer has the exact Overland you want. tell them to go pick it up at the yard or your going elsewhere.

Yep... agreed.
A little over a month ago I looked into a trade, and no one will do so... because they will easily sell from their own inventory.

Re: Should I be upset? Overland…

I really didn't know that overlands were such a hot ticket item.

Re: Should I be upset? Overland…

sorry 87.........they are a new dealer under new ownership, and are gearing up to be a volume dealer obviously, but not many overlands, so they wont deal on them, but they offered me an invoice deal on the laredo of my choice....
