What dealer? We are probably on the same train. I purchased through Crowley in Bristol they have been great! Ordered mine back in August.

Have fun,

Matt

New boston is the rail yard near springfield that jeeps off load onto car trailers for delivery to New England dealers (wrong its East Brookfield, New Boston is the Detroit Yard.. sorry). Should be at the dealer within a couple days. Its not all that unusual (but frustrating) to have a Jeep held for two-three weeks in storage waiting for the right train. Mine was driven around Detroit from one storage yard then to another and then to a staging area outside of detroit. It had over 50 miles on it when it showed up at my dealer. 14,000 miles later, not an issue.

Thats only about 7 weeks. Consider yourself lucky. I have waited 16 weeks for new cars before. Jeep is very quick between order and delivery in my opinion.;)

Maybe they are testing driving it in the winter snow before it gets to you - lol.

I ordered a 2000 EB Expedition back in the fall of 1999 (there was a time when you actually had to order those beasts, because dealers could not keep them in stock!) It was built and shipped all the way to the distribution yard in Albany. And there is sat through the Holidays because the trucking companies shut down on the same schedule as the plants. It finally came in the second week of January.
