Is the Dealer lying to me?

Iím trying to order a 2015 SRT without a sunroof. (I know most of you would prefer the sunroof but thatís my preference). The dealer claims that a sunroof is a required item even though Jeep.ca shows it as an option when you build and price online. I have a feeling that theyíre trying to push one of the 2014 and 2015s that are on the local lots on me.


1) Can anyone confirm that they have successfully ordered one w/o a sunroof? Has anyone from Canada done it? Which model year?


2) Are current order times still approximately 6-8 weeks? They are telling me that itís 3 months but I think that is a tactic to try to convince me to buy the existing vehicles.


3) One of the 2 models that they are trying to get me to buy is about 200 miles away. Should I be concerned about how the car jockey drives the vehicle to my city, Calgary? Itís hard to imagine them following the break-in period guidelines.


I have to admit that the 2 vehicles are tempting (one is a 2014, the other a 2015) because I have driven with a sunroof for decades and ďput up with themĒ by always having the sun shade pulled over them. If the sunroof is a requirement then one of these 2 will do. If it is not, then I'll have to make a tough decision.

Re: Is the Dealer lying to me?

I saw one early early 2012 without a sunroof...so Id imaginbe it was an option at one time. Not seen one since though. Send a PM to Pat@fieldsauto here on the forums....he'll be straight up with you.

Re: Is the Dealer lying to me?

Sounds like they are uneducated or being less than honest. Too bad. I'd pass this along to Chrysler's head office and whoever runs the SRT division.

I used to work at BMW corporate and we always wanted to know about this dealer level crap.

Re: Is the Dealer lying to me?

I test drove one in Australia about 3 months ago with no sunroof, had the upgraded stereo though. The dealers told if you get the upgraded stereo it's cheaper to get it with the sunroof as a package as it cost you about the same price just for the stereo or just for the sunroof as it would for both together.

The salesperson may not be lying, just uninformed, idiot, not good at their job, lazy.

Tell them you'll take one with the sun roof, but they'll have to subtract the cost, otherwise you'll order one.. they want to liquidate their inventory as bad if not more than you want to buy the vehicle.



6-8 weeks for build time in US. Don't know if the extra 4 weeks they're telling you is due to your location.

Re: Is the Dealer lying to me?

I wouldn't worry about who drives the car back....demand that a tow truck goes and gets it. That's what I would do

Re: Is the Dealer lying to me?

I don't know 100% about the '15's but I ordered a '14 without the pano roof no problem. However, if you order the HK sound system it comes mandatory with the pano roof but not vice versa.
