Re: Production delay! :(

I stand by my father's theory even more now:

He feels they either underestimated production orders seriously or there was an initial setback in parts production due to a defect/problem. When he assisted with the startup of the Saturn plant they had to junk a whole lot of parts because of a tiny casting defect. Just my theory though. Whole reason I ordered early and am going through this is to be in the initial build, now it doesn't seem like MANY of us are.

Do you have a good set of sockets, a large hammer and a titanium-bladed metric hacksaw?

No worries.

Darn, my hacksaw is Imperial, but I'll find a flux capacitor if it'll help!

Re: Production delay! :(

Talk about a buzz kill. Anyone else feel as though the excitement and talk regarding the Jeep SRT8 is actually GOING DOWN rather than up?

forums have been relatively quiet for the past few days.

Re: Production delay! :(

Oh, definitely.

1) Pricing issue
2) Delayed production
3) No communication from Chrysler

Just seems like a horrible way to start something.

Re: Production delay! :(

This slowdown of information is killing me! I have to actually get work done when this forum slows down.

In all honesty though, you guys are awesome, I have a Jeep on order and by the information that I have received from this forum I have been able to call the dealership on it's mistakes. For ex. I was a for dealer stock order and had I not been a member on this forum I would have never known the difference between the priority numbers or that I needed to be a "sold order", etc...

Now hopefully we can get some new information soon this looking forward to Monday's then to Friday's is driving me nuts!!

LOL, this is so true for me too. The last 2 weeks have been crazy! I'm just trying not to get worked up over it and when the pricing comes out will then make my decision on keeping my order or not. It would be crazy not to rely on these forums and only rely on dealer info. Thank God for the internet!

Absolutely it's a buzzkill.

But it's not stopping me from checking this site 20 times per day!
