Dont worry about it as the wait is so worth it. You will be like a kid on christmas once you get it in and your driving it.

Yeah, I hear ya. Thanks. There is one big difference, though: the kid doesn't have to pay Santa to eventually get the toy!

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

With all the threads on here, this is the one I want to graduate from as soon as possible!

Thinking about trading in my 2003 KJ and the 75th Anniversary JKU caught my eye. I've walked in to 3 dealers, financing in hand, ready to place a factory order, and have had problems getting any of them to actually put it in for me.

First dealer, I asked about the process for ordering a vehicle (deposit, timeline, paperwork) and they never replied or called me back. After a few days, I crossed them off the list.

Second dealer wanted a $2k Deposit. Told them I'd think about it, and talked to the third one

Third dealer wanted a $500 Deposit, so I gave them my order, and they were going to submit it that day (4/6). Called next day for the VON, didn't have it yet. The next week, I called 3 times over the course of the week, sales guy said the person who places orders isn't in, but would call me back. Last Friday I ended up talking to a Jeep Chat Rep who got in contact with a dealer. I finally got a call from the GM at the dealership with a 'VON' (at this point, I don't know if it's a good number...lol).

My thinking is that I should have been the easiest customer they could have asked for. I'm good to go with financing, know what I want, and ready to pull the trigger. At this point, I think I have a VON, but now I'm worried about what other shenanigans they might pull.

Has anyone else had this kind of problem, trying to get a dealer to actually take your money?

re: 2016 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Placed an order with a brand new dealership in town, SouthTrail Chrysler Dodge Jeep - claiming to be the biggest dealer in Canada.

2016 JK, a Sport but optioned up with exactly what I want. (like the 3.73.... )

Hats off to them, great people that treated me with respect, no BS, and right from the start better pricing and more info than 4 other dealers I also contacted.

Now..... I feel like I'm waiting for a child to be born LOL!
