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

So I go to my dealer before I go on vacation about 2 weeks ago to get an update on my Jeep. They tell me it's on hold and once again THEY DON'T KNOW WHY!

Fine so I contact a friend that works for Chrysler. He does some checking into it, and get back to me with my Jeep has been released from the factory and is on the way to me. GREAT RIGHT? NO!!!

I get back of vacation and figured I would call Jeep to find out what is going on. Today 11 April, the lady that I talked to was really nice!!! She even called my dealer to see what was going on. But that's it. They both the dealer and Jeep have no idea whats wrong. I know, I know, I know you can't expedite your vehicle to you, but the lady tried, that's what she said at least. She also told me that my Jeep has a "In Service" status. HUH... I was just told from my friend that it's on it's way ^ Ok fine the Jeep lady can't do anything for me. So I call my dealer and talk to the sales manager, he gives me the "I don't know story" and your lucky yours is built with the color you want, there are people that can't even get the color they want right now because of the Japan earthquake". < And this applies to me why? I just want my Jeep! He goes up stairs to talk to the ordering guy and see whats up and tells me he will call me back. What happens, he doesn't call back, the ordering guy does. GRRRRRRR And the ordering guy can't help me or tell me anything, he doesn't know whats wrong either.

ARE YOU SERIOUS!!! Lucky for him but Kaflyboy got his or at least his is at his dealership and he ordered after me. WTF!!! I AM SO IRRITATED RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not spending $20 on a toy car, I'm buying a $50,000 Jeep C'mon give me a break PLEASE!!!

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

I feel your pain (:JgCoSgIrL!! I am now in day number 80 on my order. No one knows sh*t! It is more aggravating for me to call for an update than it is worth. Placed my order on January 22, Schedule to build on March 8, Built by March 19 pending inspection, & shipped to a Body Vendor on March 28; and has been there ever since! It takes a dealer one hour to install the side steps, but apparently much longer for union workers in Michigan!

I am SORRY! I feel your pain... calling for an update has got to be worse then waiting!!!

Long story short, I sold my truck before my deployment, came back, currently I'm using my Aunt and Uncle's car until the 27th of April... after that I'm screwed. I would like my Jeep before the 27th that would be perfect!!! But it's not going to happen...

Hang in there, its a very painful process. It is all worth it at the end when you get the call from your dealer and you russshhh to the dealership and BAM!! There she is sitting there waiting for you to take her home all nice and shiny.

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

I think such a delay without adequate explanation would have me climbing the walls... Get your dealer to contact their regional rep or someone else up the food chain......ridiculous that it hasn't been released yet.

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

Wow, I feel your pain as well. Not sure about your situation - sounds even worse than mine. I ordered 2/4 and just picked it up tonight - 2 hrs after they unloaded it.

Hopefully you're tracking with Milious - makes the wait less painful - I knew more about my status than the dealer.

They told me tonight that not only is the paint an issue due to Japan, but they also can't get any more chips for nav system (also from Japan). First I've heard of that - not sure if that's truly accurate.

Transport is just as frustrating - I couldve pushed mine from MI to GA faster than it took via rail. It sat in ATL alone for (5) days before my dealer rec'd it - amazing as it was only 20 miles away. Apparently they recently changed transport companies.

Buuuuuuut, now that I have it I would say it was worth the wait - you'll love it!

Best of luck with the wait --- and thanks for serving!

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

Okay...trying to be lighthearted here to help alleviate the frustration...

The best things about not having your new Jeep yet...

-Don't have to worry about whether to wax or even use a clay bar and what brand to use
-Don't have to figure out why it squeaks when you tow, and what to do about it
-Don't have to keep watching the AVG MILEAGE display on the EVIC and wish you got more
-Don't have to research the best sunshade
-Don't have to figure out what product you should use to protect your wheels
-Don't have to decide what parts to apply clear bra if any
-Don't have to decide whether to "debadge"
-Don't have to figure out if you want to tint the front to windows and if so, what shade
-Don't have to figure out who makes the best floor mats and cargo mat
-Don't have to decide whether and how to protect the leather
-Don't have to decide what grade gas to use
-Don't have to drive less than 55mph for 300 miles to break it in




I've only had my Jeep a little over a week and so far, I can say I LOVE IT!!! Hopefully, yours will arrive soon and the frustration will be over.

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

I too understand your pain. Right now my Jeep has been sitting in the rail yard for 2 weeks, slipping a day for every day that goes by, with no explanation either. It's now been sitting there longer than it took to get there from the factory!

They really need to get their act together.

JgCoSgIrl - Hang in there!

I can tell you mine was worth the wait ... and it wasn't so long ago that I was where you are ... getting very frustrated with that wait. Do what you can to kick Jeep and your dealer in the butt to get some answers.

We're going to be really happy for you (and for Candy Girl and for joebinotto) when it finally arrives!
