Inferno V6 Overland Arrived Today!
 
My Overland got to the dealership today! I got the black interior and the V6, no other options. It does have QuadraLift! They couldn't have it ready today so I will be picking it up Monday. FYI I placed my order on July 20th.
:thumbsup:

Brian Congrats. Where are you located. I ordered the same vehicle on 7/7 and the now have pushed the ship date to next Wednesday. Just trying to figure out how yours came in and mine which was ordered 2 weeks eariler is still not here.

James, you aren't alone. My V6 Overland was ordered 7/10, was built on Aug. 26, and is still sitting in Detroit. For some reason those of us who ordered in early July and had ours built in August are just sitting. Site Supporters can have their vehicles tracked by Milous (there's a special thread for this in the site supporters area).

There's just no rhyme or reason to what's going on. The only things that appear sure are that recent orders are built and shipped quickly. They are clearing out the backlog of vehicles somewhat (most Overlands in the tracking thread are now enroute). Still, some remain with ZERO information on what's going on.

Some potential causes could be, dealer allocation, options ordered, engine ordered, devine intervention... ect. I'm sure some other guys know other reasons. I'm in Pittsburgh.

Also some get picked for longer quality checks.

Dude, don't take this the wrong way, but those items are well and truly BS at this point. The V6 was indeed holding up production a bit, but now it seems there aren't any parts shortage for production. Besides, once built, parts shortages are less a concern.

As for being picked for "longer quality checks," I'd like to know how long is "longer." It's one thing to be talking a day or two. There's several of us who have been sitting at "Casf-Eldon Yard" for two full weeks with zero motion. That's more than enough time for them to inspect the entire vehicle by going in through the tailpipe. That's also more than enough time for them to zero in on a specific QC item and fix it.

The only item I have left to consider as an actual reason is gross incompetence. Some idiot decided to shunt a few Grand Cherokees off and put them under a rock. It isn't a glut waiting to get dispatched; if that were the problem, you'd anticipate "first in, first out," and that's just not what is happening. It isn't "more extensive quality checks." They've had way more than enough time to do that. It isn't even "fixing problems," because they've had plenty of time to not only fix any problems, but scrap the vehicle and run a replacement on down through the assembly line.

Whatever they're doing with these vehicles, there's no remaining reason I can see for it. If they needed some for weeks on end, they could have built a few demo models rather than diverting sold orders.

Jeep has some real questions they need to answer, and they just aren't going to do so. Even when asked point blank several times in the engineers' chat, they completely ducked the question. Something is amiss.

The tracking area is great and I would sign up to be a site supporter but I don't have a pay pal account to pay the membership. Guess I'm still stuck back in the stone age.

Hey Techno, look at it this way you and I are going to have the most flawless Jeeps to ever come out of any factory with the amount "extra" QC that our must of had in the last 12 weeks.:lol:

Serenity now, Serenity now!!

Man, I'm not going to take it the wrong way as I don't work for Chrysler, and don't have a clue what they are doing.... hope you get yours soon

I sure hope that's the case. I'm somewhere well past aggravated, progressing past "pissed," and am well on my way to "livid." I just keep trying to tell myself that this isn't that big a deal in the big scheme of things.

I just didn't want it to sound like I was dumping on you- if you haven't been following the tracking thread you aren't likely to know that the usual assurances have worn thin and we're getting progressively testier as we see newer vehicles ship while ours sit. :mad:
