Anyone heard anything about current production?

Seems something is holding things up. Had a chat with my dealer and tracking confirms the same thing, there must be something holding up production at the plant. My Jeep went to D1 on Jan 6th with a delivery date of 1/24. As of today, Feb 3rd there has been no movement at all, still sitting in D1 status.

So has anyone heard anything? Trouble getting parts? They seem to be weeks behind again after they seemed to have things rolling along. Frustrating.

Re: Anyone heard anything about current production?

I heard from my dealership last week and was told that they talked to someone @ the plant and that there were no more SRT builds until first week of Feb at least. I didn't get a reason, however I can confirm that there is/was a delay in production following some sort of "shut down".

There have been no delays whatsoever, builds have been ongoing daily, and even on some weekends. January was a record month with 516 vehicles built. For February, builds going on everyday, 80 so far.

Lots of export models being built lately, but right along with U.S. models.

Quite a few heading to China, more going to New Zealand, Germany, Italy, Belgium, South Africa, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Australia, and yes, even Azerbaijan! UK coming up soon...
