It won't move this week since the plant is down. If it still hasn't moved by next week tuesday, PM me the last six numbers of your vin. I'm on vacation still, but I can send a text and *maybe* get it moving.

You would think they would pull something for inspection destined for dealer inv., and not a customer order.
But it sounds like "membership has its privileges". Glad to have Archer in our corner...

That be the sensible thing to do. However, the inspection is completely random.

Let's hope that's where it was rolling thru when the "drop your tools...let's go on vacation bell rung...". just saying....

I would like to think that an order than has a customers name on it has a bit more care put in to the inspection v. a dealer lot one... but that would be me wanting special treatment.

In reality a 100% random inspection is the way to go, keeps everyone one their toes and makes the overall product more reliable.

Further I would suspect that the first few to roll off the line for a new model year to be checked more often than the 100,000th one to roll off. Make sure the new processes and parts are jiving before the new processes are all ironed out.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

We're simultaneously asking for a fast track AND for extra care and consideration and inspection time.

THIS is why completely random inspection schedule makes more sense...along with the fact that just a few thousand (at best) of the 1/4 million Wranglers to roll off the line will be specially ordered by the buyer.

There really aren't any new parts, other than maybe the subwoofer. That shouldn't take long to check.

In general, I agree 100% with what you wrote, but... just sayin'.

Is that why my early 2014 Sport was built missing a USB port in the console eventhough I had the connectivity option? So much for inspections. Issue was never resolved.

The VOTS system seems to be reporting some information... just have to use the URL and not the 'search' feature.

When you say "in the console" do you mean in the lockable box? That's where mine is, not in the small port next to the shifter like the manual says IIRC.

Thanks for the URL. Now I can check status myself without bugging the hotline attendants weekly
