Same here Dealer order sheet said 3/10, I placed a deposit on 4/28. Made it to JB status on 6/1 and has sat there for almost a month now. My financing incentives expire tomorrow, so not a happy camper at the moment.

Yeah, same boat. Order and deposit 4/11, minimal updates since then. Have been built pending inspection since 5/18... Being a patient person now would come in very handy!!!

SRT Night edition ordering to open 4/11/2016

Well I originally went to get one ordered on June 6. Traded in my car and left a downpayment that same day.

Dealer calls me a week later saying they cannot place an order. After several conversations with corporate and the dealer, it turns they never had an allocation for one and the banks were closed.

So just as I am about to go to war with the dealership (why would they take my car and money without knowing they could order one beforehand), salesman calls me the next day saying they found one across the country. Exactly the way I wanted it, down to the color, packages and all. Dealer does a swap, they send them 2 of their cars for the SRT Night.

SRT Night arrived 15 days later.

:thumbs: Lucked out! At least you were able to get it worked out.. I'd be concerned about my order all together but I got a VIN, so that must be "some" progress

Re: SRT Night edition ordering to open 4/11/2016

This is where it gets even more frustrating with my dealership. There is a nearby dealer that has one in stock with the exact same build, however they refuse to try a dealer swap/transfer. Some BS about they have to pay that dealer full invoice and would lose money on the deal.

That doesn't even sound right to me- don't they also pay invoice to the factory?

Whether that money goes to Chrysler or another dealer, it is still invoice, right?

I would certainly go directly to that other dealer if I didn't have a hefty deposit down with my current one.

The delayed build mixed with dealer games makes for quite the unpleasant experience!

Yeah, it sucks but there is truth in the invoice thing. Invoice is a fake number to make us all think we are paying "what they pay".... obviously not true if they want to stay in biz so the Holdback (HB) is 3% of msrp and acts as an initial guaranteed profit and is only paid on sale so when they trade they have to trade based on the higher "fake" invoice and their goal is to trade exact $ for $ which can b exceedingly difficult with high demand vehicles....some dealers refuse to trade with dealers who will screw with them ...

Re: SRT Night edition ordering to open 4/11/2016

That now makes sense. Thank you for the info and clarification!

The only solace I have is that I got a deal good enough to cause these problems
