Wish me luck
Ok so Milous has been kind enough to track my ride through the birthing process up until it's delivery on the 8th. It was delivered at 11pm so I figured I'd get a call from the dealer on the 9th. Nope not all day. I so happen to drive by the dealer late last night figuring they prepped it and would be ready today. Nope sitting in the front lot plastic all over it unlocked noless. I'm going to give him a call this afternoon to get the exact price out the door so my bank can cut the check and I can drive my sweetness home! Wish me luck and patience. Doesn't he know I check this site like 5x a day lol

You didn't call them at all on the 9th and you're not going to call them until this afternoon?? Wow, that's not patience, that masochism!! Congrats on the imminent bliss of the First Drive Home.

lol that is what I was thinking. I actually asked the dealer if I could drive mine off the truck when it gets there, he did not think that was too funny. :thumbsup:

:lol: that is funny mashie.... A few days ago I was tempted to call my dealer/Chrysler and ask him if I could get it off the staging lot in Toledo since it was so close...:whistle:

I guess it's like anything...when you work in an ice cream shop every day, ice cream loses some of its allure. Same probably goes for OB/GYNs...well, maybe not.

It's probably natural for the dealers to sometimes forget that to their customers, delivery day is huge! I was in the Detroit area last weekend and stopped by a Jeep dealer. Asked him if it would be faster for me to order and take delivery through him since he is just "downriver" (term they use for anything south of Detroit) from Jefferson North Assembly Plant. He said it probably wouldn't make too much of a difference. A factory delivery program for splashy new models like the WK2 would also be a cool thing, but I can see how it could also turn into a fiasco if mishandled. I'd rather that they focus on turning out excellent vehicles when it's all said and done.

But for the love of Mike, Redcivic47-- make the call to your dealer!!:eek:

Re: Wish me luck
Ok well I call the dealer and ask him if i can have my jeep that's been sitting in his lot for three days. I am told that the guy I did the write up with in September is in a meeting (it's a small dealership and i dealt with the owner who gave me a good price) but they would get a hold of him and see what they can do and call me back. No phone call. I call back and ask if I can at least have the final out the door price because my bank is closing soon and they need to cut the check in anticipation of a late night pick up or something on Saturday. Ok I'll wait for them to call back. Nope no call back. Menwhile i call the bank and they cut me a check for the original amount and said any addl discounts/rebates woud be given back to me in a check so i should be good to go. After waiting several hours i call again and do speak to the owner who is back from training. He was shocked i knew the truck was there and said it must have shown up early this morning. He didn't know i knew it was there for 3 days and i went there the last night and was inside it. So I was sure I'd be able to pick it up Saturday. Yeah, no he's hunting tomorrow and is busy. So of course i ask if someone else will TAKE MY 45 THOUSAND DOLLAR CHECK and he said no no one else there knows the ins and outs so sorry, how's Monday for ya. I'm So pisssed right now!
