Why Build Orders So Slow - Jefferson North
 
I ordered on 9/5/11 a 2012 Overland white / gold, beige interior, off - road adventured II, and a 5.7L. Went D1 status 9/8/11. But I can't get any estimated delivery date and it's already 6 weeks. What's going on at Jefferson North or what are the waiting for?

come on ... building cars gets in the way of smoking and drinking .... lol

I am sure that your order is moving along -- but the update status is just lagging. I remember when I ordered my Porsche and Mini Cooper --- they both said pending for about 2 weeks -- all of a sudden I get a call that its at the dealer.

Congrats on your new order...

At least yours went to D1. Mine has been at B I think for 3 weeks now. Ordered on Sept 28th.

I don't think it is going to magically appear. The dealer isn't getting any info either and I've pushed the regional mgr to at least get some type of an estimate. All to know avail. That's why I thought I'd try our forum where smart people seem to figure it out first. Thanks JT

Think of us downunder 7 months. 5 months wait before D1 build,2 weeks for build 7 weeks for delivery

Your right it is all in one's perspective. The good news for you is that you have a beautiful car and your way ahead of me. Thanks for the thoughts. JT

I ordered my Jeep on 09/17/2011. Today, the Vehicle Order Tracking System (VOTS) reflects that it's being painted. :) But mine is Mineral Gray, not White Gold.

Well at least your having some movement. Do you have an estimated delivery date? And, in what part of the world are you? Good luck JT

Re: Why Build Orders So Slow - Jefferson North
 
No, I don't have an estimated delivery date. And the VOTS shows that mine's still being painted. :confused: I guess that it got stuck in the paint shop.:rolleyes:

Order banks for White Gold closed last Monday (17th), so they will still be building them for the next 4-6 weeks or so.
