Build or Delivery Date estimates
 
Out of curiosity, I was wondering if anyone might be able to give me any kind of an estimate on when my Cherokee Trailhawk might get built and/or delivered. I placed the order on Thurs November 14, although I believe the dealer actually placed the order on Monday the 18th. The specs are as follows:

Cold Weather Group, Technology Group, Comfort & Convenience Group, Cloth seats, No sunroof (I think its a waste of money since I never use them), Uconnect 8.4 w/Nav and Sat Radio, CD Player, 3.2L engine, Granite w/Metallic clear coat paint.

I can't think of anything else that would be relevant. If anyone has any idea as to an estimate of when it'll be built and/or delivered, I'd love to hear it. I have not gotten any confirmation emails from Jeep and I had to call the dealer to get my VON and VIN. Currently it's scheduled for production.

Thanks!

If they sent your e-mail in with the order you should get updates by e-mail from Jeep. If not tell your sales person to add it!
You can also use the Jeep system (vots)and input your vin to get the current status. The system is not the most up to date tracking method.
I would guess that DI status (Scheduled) is what you are looking for.
You will sit in that stage for 3 weeks, could be more..
I would also guess that it looks like 4 weeks, could be more after D1 you could get your car depending shipping location.
My D1 was 11/20/13 so I am crossing my fingers just before Christmas or after. It should go to production 12/12 or it will be a long wait. We will see.

PS Jeep Garage also offers a service to track your Jeep with upgraded membership.

So far you are experiencing is very similar to mine. Cheap was not at all forthcoming with information. So I became a premium level for member here and I've been using Milous's tracking service. I have been very satisfied: he was able to provide me an estimated shipping date two weeks before Jeep did. That was $30 very well spent.

Regarding my previous post, I guess I need to pay more attention when I'm using Siri to dictate. I meant Jeep not cheap.

I've been using VOTS which is how I know its scheduled for production, but it's been that way for at least a week and a half. I dunno how much longer than that i'ts been at that status since that is when I called the dealer to get my VON. It would be nice if Jeep would include an estimated production start date with that status lol.

I would like to spend the $30 here to upgrade the membership to use the tracking, but the only way is through PayPal and I don't use that. I used to, until I had an issue with them randomly sending money out of my account to random people I didn't know, so after the fraud dispute with them over that, I can't use them anymore.

Mine went from D1 , or Production Scheduled, to Trim. Next day went to i, or inspection. Less than a day later, it was released to shipment. That brings us to today...

Now that I've upgraded my membership here, I see my estimated delivery is on the 30th, so I'm hopeful that maybe the Jeep gods will smile upon me lol. I hope yours arrives on time too!

I just got an e-mail from Jeep Vots that I am in Trim, 8am 12/12!
D1 status was 11/20 Order date was 11/08
So it looks like 3 weeks in D1 then production.
Shipping seems to be going fast.
Maybe to the dealer by 12/21 to 12/23. Never got a delivery date!:):):)
