Delivery Question?
 
My Overland went to KZ:
Plant Release (KZ) 05/06/2011 11:33 AM EDT Detroit Jefferson Assembly, MI
Since then these are the Route Movements:


Departed Facility 05/06/2011 05:10 PM EDT Detroit Jefferson Assembly, MI .. In Bay At Facility 05/07/2011 06:42 AM EDT Detroit Jefferson Assembly, MI .. Paper Receipt 05/07/2011 06:43 AM EDT Detroit Jefferson Assembly, MI .. Staged For Shipment 05/07/2011 06:44 AM EDT Detroit Jefferson Assembly, MI .. Paper Receipt 05/10/2011 01:59 AM EDT VASC - Detroit State Fair Ground, MI .. Ramp Compare Inventory 05/11/2011 01:27 AM EDT VASC - Detroit State Fair Ground, MI Current

.. Staged For Shipment 05/11/2011 01:27 AM EDT VASC - Detroit State Fair Ground, MI Future

Can anyone tell me why it hasn't shipped yet? Should I expect a long delay before delivery?

Thanks,

It is probably waiting for a rail car, could be days or weeks. Staged for shipment usually means that within a few days it will be moved to New boston, then placed on a rail car and then get hooked onto a train. But there are exceptions.

It seems, most vehicles that get the "Ramp Compare Inventory" take a long time to ship. I thought Quebec shipments were shuttled to Windsor, Ontario and put on a rail car there.

Thanks,

Went to see my dealer today about finalizing price and payment option. Asked him why my Jeep has been seating in Toledo, for the last 10 days? He checked and said the computer code is quality control. He said maybe 1 in 100 are chosen for QC. Anyone hear of this, with there's? I know Fiat was big on testing and QC after first production and before first JGC's were delivered. I think they did more than 2,000,000 miles on these vehicles.
