Smile Loooong wait ending soon!

So, for anyone who did not see my post a few days ago, there were absolutely no stock SRT8s on offer in Ontario last week, and only two for future delivery. Then suddenly, five or six more appeared like magic. It's as if they just suddenly found wheels to put under these things!

Well, that might well be exactly what happened. (more on that later)

Today, I made the deal for my new SRT8, after a lot of back and forth with a few different dealers. It's exactly what I was wanting to spec out, Black on Black with all the bells and whistles except a stupid rear seat DVD, (if my honey and I want to cuddle in the back, we'll go to a drive-in movie) and it is already built, in transit, so should arrive here in early July.

I'm counting the minutes!

Now, back to that wheel thing. It turns out, according to my dealer, there was a back up due to too few wheels available from the supplier. Could that have anything to do with those chipped wheels I've been reading about here? Anyway, I guess they got the wheels delivered in finally, because there are SRT8 offers popping up all over now...(relatively speaking that is).

Re: Loooong wait ending soon!

Still waiting for my jeep here in Nor Cal. The dealer couldn't tell me what the hold up was so I was going to drive 150 miles to get one that was sitting on the lot. I got 35 miles out of town and the dealer here called me and told me some of the SRT's were being held up for emmisions but should be resolved by the begining of this week. So I came back. I sure hope he is being truthfull.

Re: Loooong wait ending soon!

I am in ontario canada,i ordered mine last november.It is now been sitting in windsor,staged for delivery for 1 week.
They seem very disorganized in the ordering,building and delivering of these vehicles.I have ordered numerous vehicles in the past and nothing has ever been this long.

just saying.

Dang that is a long time to wait for a vehicle. I hope disorganization is all it is.

Gosh, guys. Now I feel kinda guilty. Mine arrived today, and I'll pick it up Thursday (only because of my schedule, they could have prepped it sooner). Gee.....hope you both get your deliveries soon.
