They're a large volume dealer, but in a small town, so they're honest and reliable. Once I make a deal and have a build schedule, I'll make sure I have an out in case of a long production delay and can then go shopping for a stock unit after some deliveries are in. All of this assumes we can work out a deal pretty soon, but they have a little time to work on it once the 2013 pricing is released.
I had thought the same thing about my dealer as well. Then they ended up getting one in that was not the one that I ordered. They had an opportunity to sell it for $8,000 over window price and didn't give me a chance to purchase it. Kinda left a sour taste in my mouth as it would have been the 3rd vehicle I had bought from them in 2 years. That made up my mind to shop around and I am glad that I did. Not trying to change your mind just relaying my story.

ps. I still take it there for service, they are happy to do the warranty work.

Buffalo is just 50 miles south of here, and there are several available there too. Problem is, importing as an owner is a hassle. Instrument cluster has to be swapped out for metric (speed and kilometers travelled), and dealers have been known to not respect warranties on CDN registered vehicles purchased in the U.S. They did that to fight back when so many Canucks flocked south for the deals as our dollar appreciated. There used to be a huge difference of $10000.00 or more on premium vehicles that could be picked up because U.S. prices were so relatively low compared to here. Now the gap is closed, but the hassle remains.

Fewer delivered here too.....only 317 so far for all of Canada, and just 123 of those in Ontario, according to latest prod'n numbers from WK2 Jeeps.
Funny how you say just 123 for Ontario. That's 40% of the Canadian production in one province. There is only 11 so far in SK.

Re: Looooong wait....

You are indeed lucky to have gotten one of the 11 kbench55.

.......but whoa....hold on....three just showed up on Auto Trader today that were not in stock two days ago. Looks like the year end production is finally arriving after 9-1/2 months! So let's go shopping and see what happens next!!!!!

Ya know ..... that's a thought many of us have when it just sucks to be a Canuck, like when we have to pay a lot more for the same things. But just like you, we love our country, it's home, we take it warts and all. Oh, and we're glad the USA is our neighbour.
