Re: Will my jeep ever get here!!! I'm beyond irritated!!!

Here's a general explanation for some of the delays:

Vehicle delivery delays continue for many manufacturers

In addition to the vehicle delivery delays resulting from the disaster in Japan, many auto manufacturers have reported that delays continue due to quality inspection holds, railcar shortages and new truck carrier arrangements.

Quality Inspection Holds

Due to stringent quality guidelines, many vehicles are held by manufacturers for final inspection and rework (if necessary) before being released from the production plant. Ford and Chrysler have noted that this has caused some buildup of inventory at the assembly plants and outside storage yards, thereby causing some new vehicle shipping delays.

Railcar Shortages

Automakers have reported an industry-wide shortage of railcars across North America. Railcars were put in storage during the economic recession, and the railcar companies have been slow to release railcars back into service. In addition, severe weather that swept through many parts of North America over the course of the winter continues to affect the availability and movement of railcars throughout the continent.
The limited number of railcars is affecting the delivery of vehicles to dealers. In addition, manufacturers and body upfitters have reported some delays in returning completed vehicles for shipment. When railcars are unavailable or delayed, upfitted units awaiting shipment may be held up at the body companies due to limited space at assembly plants.

New Truck Carrier Arrangements

Allied Systems Holdings, Inc., a major transport provider for multiple vehicle manufacturers in the U.S. and Canada, ceased providing services on March 17 as a result of contract disputes. The manufacturers have since secured alternative truck carriers, but communication and logistics systems between the manufacturers and the new providers have been slow to sync up. In addition, we have noticed a few instances in which the new carriers have either not reported that vehicles have been delivered to the dealers, or have reported delivery before it actually took place.

Re: Will my jeep ever get here!!! I'm beyond irritated!!!

jcg4ever, thanks for the info. JgCoSgIrL, I guess I have just become attached to my missing baby and want her. By the way, and I think someone may have posted something to this effect: I went on the official Jeep site and was looking at the Compass for a friend of mine and saw there was a rebate of some sort for them, so I went to the Grand Cherokee part of the site to see if there were any rebates there for the Overland and found the Overland models are missing! One cannot configure a vehicle! Any one know why??? Does this mean they are not making any more Overlands???

It's there now. Maybe a web site update or problem when you were looking.

Re: Will my jeep ever get here!!! I'm beyond irritated!!!

So let me try this again, I tried posting this earlier but I got some error message and lost it GRRRRRRR

Well I bit the bullet and bought a Jeep in California. Was it the right decision I don't know, but I am happy and it's done! Now I am just waiting on them to send me the paperwork so I can sign it and send it back. They won't release it until that is done.

Soon, I will be going to the other dealer up here in Anchorage and getting my deposit back for the other Jeep I put on order.

Now a even better side to this story is: When I ordered my Jeep I ordered it with the Rear-DVD entertainment system. After thinking about it for a little while, I regretted that decision. I don't have any kids, and probably wouldn't use it that much! So the new Jeep that I just purchased has the Pano roof Yipeeeeeeee!!!

Now the race is on LOL. Which Jeep will get here first?

Congrats! With the extra $1000 you saved from the DVD, you can buy two iPads and/or pay for the shipping to Anchorage!

Good call on the pano roof! I'm happy for you that there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Normally I'd suggest flying and driving it back, but I realize it's a l-o-n-g haul by road to Anchorage. (Neat city - although I'm probably biased because I visited it at the summer solstice.)

Keep us posted

Yeah that payed for part of the shipping LOL. The shipping wasn't real cheap. I am hoping that my Jeep will be released by Thursday so that the shipping company can get it to Washington State by Monday to get on the boat to Anchorage... I don't know, its going to be close! The boat coming up to Anchorage (with the carrier I went with) only leaves every Tuesday. But they were $400 dollars cheaper!

I would have drove it back, but it's about 3400 miles from LA to Anchorage I would have cringed by the time I got to Anchorage with all those miles on my Jeep right away I am so particular with EVERYTHING on my vehicles. I sold my last truck a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 in 2010 with just over 30,000 miles. And I drove that baby let me tell you... cross country numerous times!

I think you made the right choice on the Pano Roof vs the rear DVD player! Did you get all of the other options that you wanted?

Yes except for 1 but it wasn't that big of a deal. The engine block heater... I can get that installed up here!
