Longest Wait?
 
So who has had the longest wait to receive their new GC?

So far I'm up to 188 days and still counting. Will probably end up around the 264 day mark or 8 months and 19 days as expected delivery is the first week of December.

I knew Sydney Australia is a long way from Detroit but DAMN!!!!! :eek:

So can anybody beat that?? :p

Wow... :eek: I feel pretty spoiled right about now getting mine 35 days after ordering.

Since it only takes about one month from order to competion, the balance is travel time. Mine took over 20 days to travel 500 miles from Detroit to me. So at that rate maybe you can order a 2014 model and it will arrive on time!
Seriously, it will be worth the wait.

We have been really messed around in Australia. My Order was placed on the 18th of March and the Build date was 31st of August. So who knows what was happening in between.

Fingers are crossed it turns up earlier. I'm awaiting details using Milous tracking details so I can see for myself what's happening :)

Mine took only one week. Sounds like yours missed the train. :p

It is definitely worth the wait. :thumbsup:

February is probably not a big delivery month and therefore took longer to fill the rail car destined for Selkirk.:o

Mine has been 134 days, and expected delivery date is around early december, so we'll be looking at 200 or so days :(

Ordered a 2011 V8 White Gold Overland with Saddle interior (But confirmed I'll get a MY12)

Looks like we'll be getting ours around the same time.

Have you got any details whether the AUS MY2012 will have the ELSD still included?

nar, not sure aye,

I would assume it does, because the ones we get are more similar to the Summit, and technically that is how it is advertised in the current brochure and the website. But not too sure.

Chrysler ships every week to Oz.
The ships are not brand exclusive

176 days for my overland with saddle MG.
Ordered same day as OzTg.
But it does not include the 24 days before the second contract was drawn up first one did not include the tow bar and was not told about the delay.
Original told 60-80 days
So 200 days
