Where in NY/what dealer? I'm not ready yet, but am hoping to get something going by October/November...I'm on the NYC/LI border but am willing to travel for a good deal!

Re: Wait Time

I ordered a v6 Overland (black/beige) with a tow package on August 20th.
I just recieved an email from my dealer with my VIN with an Estimated ship date of September 11th with an additonal week for shipping. I Live in the Chicago area. I didnt really expect it this soon but thats what they are saying.

Ordered virtually the same car as me exactly a month later, and you have to wait exactly one day longer... What are you doing right????

Estimated ship dates are pure fiction.

I have seen estimated ship dates of (in order of reception) August 4, August 9, August 7, August 17, and August 24. I have no idea what it is now. For comparison, they didn't even begin building Overlands with Quadra Lift until August 9 (so any est ship date before that was flat out impossible), and my vehicle was finally built this morning.

Your estimated ship date is likely to shift, so don't get your hopes up.

How did you receive all those different ship dates did you keep calling Chrysler Customer service and they kept changing it, or did Milous update you on delivery dates?

Re: Wait Time

I think the estimated ship dates don't mean much. I ordered my Overland on 7/7 and has it has had a ship date of 8/3 and been in D1 status since the end of July.

Calling the customer service line. Milous doesn't bother updating the ship dates, since they ought to be taken with an entire salt mine. I haven't bothered calling them back to see what the current estimated ship date happens to be. Some vehicles seem to sail through the quality control steps in 2-3 days, some take longer.

I know it isn't a happy thing to say to you, but there's just no possible way to know exactly how long it will take, and you're less likely to be disappointed anticipating 10-12 weeks over 6-8.

I suspected as much. Just wondered where you were getting your updates. Thanks!

Re: Wait Time

I dont know...I think this whole thing is luck. The whole ship date thing may or may not be accurate...but at least they got me a VIN. Seems like others have waited a long time just for a VIN and mine came in under a week. So, we'll see what happens.

Re: Wait Time

I ordered a hemi overland w/tow on 6/28 and still waiting. Was told ship date was to be 8/23 then it changed to 8/30. GRRR the darn things are only made 3 1/2 hours away from here. I told the dealer I have a full tank of gas and Ill buy lunch...I never got an answer. Oh well, I have more patients than money anyways.

BTW..my first post. WHat a great forum!!
