Am I just being used by the dealer?

Hey Guys,

I need my SRT8 by the last day of November and wanted to ask if that is any realistic? I ordered it like two weeks ago and the dealer had the allocation since 06.06.11. That gives Jeep 2 months and a couple of scrap days to build the car and it just does not click in my head.

I told that to the dealer and they said no worries and I negotiated the price and put down a deposit... but somehow it seems to me that the dealer just wanted my name on the Jeep so that it would be pushed forward. Meaning they would get it early enough in stock (after November) and could sell it in the show room, to get full price or even extra.

(maybe i am just dealer paranoid, since I have never had a good experience with a dealer no matter which price class I bought a car in)

Shipments of the first batch of orders start in 2 days on the 28th, I'm hoping my order is in that since I ordered mine almost 4 months ago now (June 1st to be exact).

it's not in the shipment.

In fact, I feel confident in estimating you shouldn't have to worry about protecting it at your house on Halloween night.

You have to hit PR first then D1 to have a scheduled build date..... you no where near either one........ but, for some reason, I think you already knew that....

As far as the original OP: I think you are being paranoid........

Re: Am I just being used by the dealer?

Just talked to local dealers and they have vins and they're vins have been built according to their tracking info and I haven't asked for a VIN in a few months so I'll try to find out if there is one now. The info entered for me on the tracking one was just the VON and not the VIN. I'm hoping its built and arriving sometime soon if not I'm picking up a 550i.

Milous already checked, you don't have a VIN. Thus you haven't even hit D status yet, which is before D1 (scheduled for build). Once you do hit D1, you then have to wait for it to be built, then shipped to the dealer. Being in Canada, I suppose shipping is at least 2 weeks on or more on its own from the time it leaves the plant until the dealer gets it.(?)

Re: Am I just being used by the dealer?

Well that sucks then I guess if there's no info or anything in the next coupple weeks I'm visiting other dealers and getting something else. My dealer really screwed me on this one I guess, he'll get a piece of my mind this weekend when I visit him in persion.

Re: Am I just being used by the dealer?

Well I do already have a VIN and hit PR status, so that means it could really be possible that I could receive it before the end of November?
