Well, it's either pay $63k for a 5200lbs SUV that performs like the one I have, or less, and will barely get driven and has been a pain in the ass to acquire so far. Or pay Approx. $58k-60k for a more limited run coupe, that performs better than a CTS-V, and will barely get driven.

The Jeep will still be made in 3 years, probably with the upgrades we all want. The ZL1 is only a 2 year run. Camaro gets refreshed in MY2014. If I needed a new DD I'd stick with the Jeep, but whatever I get will probably be a semi-garage queen because my GTO is a great daily lead sled up and down I-95. When I think of the Jeep being a semi-garage queen, I realize how asinine the circumstance is.

Re: Question for those with orders or who have already got truck

Just got shafted by my dealer here too. I have it in writing that they would sell at invoice and placed my order when the order banks opened. Initially they reported the order was unfulfillable due to lack of allocation and that Jeep reported they wouldn't ever get one so they refunded my deposit. They kept the order placed and shortly after the refund they were given a special allocation and the order got filled. I talked with the dealership about it and they said they would continue the order process regardless of the deposit and that I could make the decision when the JGC SRT8 arrived. The Jeep is finally built (with my name on it) and its finally ready to ship and they have decided that they will only sell it for the new MSRP without the price protection as their minimum price.

The question is: what choices/options do I have? I've worked only with the general sales manager so for. Should I take it to the GM? This is a Lithia dealership, should I take it further up the chain? Is there a good contact at Jeep to talk to about stupid shit like this?

Thanks all for the help!
Gore

Re: Question for those with orders or who have already got truck

I would try everyone local before going forward. Then I may consult your attorney and see what they say.

Scottina,
Thanks for the feedback. I left a VM with the general manager...hopefully something positive comes from it.

Re: Question for those with orders or who have already got truck

You'll never guess who called tonight......the GM. Apologized, said they are aware of price protection, know the code works. We talked, he said he will not give a final out the door number at this time for many reasons. Basically he said locking that number in now puts too much on the table for "verbal contracts." Doesn't want anything official until he is invoiced the truck and a purchase agreement can be made up. He did say that the numbers I shot them will be extremely close (I sent them an offer of $1000 over price protected (PP) invoice a little while back).

He understood my frustration with the entire order/vehicle launch process so far. I let him know I understand he's in the cat bird seat because he'll sell it regardless, and I question their integrity in continuing with an honest sale to me. We mutually agreed to stay the course for now and attempt to get this done.

Comment - Spoke to someone on other site today, he just ordered an SRT8. I asked where and he gave me the dealer but also offered the other dealers name, which happened to be my dealer!! They told him $1000 over new price invoice. BOTH dealers said they have been told if they order a "sold" unit, it WILL be built regardless. This means Chrysler is either upping the total 2012 builds to whatever they can sell, or they haven't allocated all 4000 units for 2012 like they said they have.

Milous: If I let my dealer sell the truck to me for $1250 over PP invoice, how much profit will they make? About $3500 right? Mine would be at least the 3rd one they've sold, not sure if the marketing fund is a one time payment.

EDIT: Why do I feel like I just got back together with a g/f who dated another guy behind my back?
