Re: How long did you wait for parts/repairs?
Well, here's the thing. Over the course of 40 years I have owned 1 Chevy, 1 Mazda, 3 Dodges and 1 Plymouth (in the '80s to mid '90s), 1 Ford, 2 Mercurys, 1 VW, and 1 Toyota. For all of those, I have never seen a wait of more than one business day for a part to come in. Well, I take that back... the Plymouth Grand Voyager's tranny went out under warranty and that took about 4 days to get a replacement installed, IIRC.
However, I have read several accounts in the forums of people having to wait weeks for a part, with their Jeep out of commission for all that time. So I thought it would be good to do a sort of informal survey or poll of forum members. Because while I would hope that these situations are extremely rare exceptions, what if they are not? I'd like to know ahead of time.
I am concerned that Jeep (and/or all Chrysler divisions) may not keep as plentiful a stock of parts on hand as do other manufacturers.
