My sales person was a total flake too. Luckily the sales manager has been more than awesome.

You can call Jeep Chat and get the VIN by telling them your VON. But everyone should get a POC from their dealer within a few days of ordering, demand it. That way they don't jack you around holding orders to fit their financial calendar, you have proof of what you ordered and you get the VON/VIN.

Thank you. I should have been more clear in that I DID receive the POC, it's just that he never got back to me with the VIN like he said he would. He seems to say things and not do them. I don't like that. I will get the VIN through Jeep Chat this week. It's not really a big deal. I don't care to talk to the dealership anymore until the vehicle is in. I can't stand car dealers and salesmen to begin with. I know there are some decent ones, but among a sea of sleaze.

Convenience Group
Cold Weather Group
Trailer Tow & Electrical Group
Cloth seats, LED Lights, MOPAR slush mats all included with 25W easy-order package (if I remember correctly, I'm at work without my order sheet handy.)

8/22 - Order Placed
8/27 - VIN Assigned
9/1 - FCA/Jeep chat advised all parts were in but vehicle wasn't being built yet.. (D or D1?)
9/5 - Spoke with dealer to see about making a change to the order & was told it was too late, because the vehicle was already in production (D1 or later, presumably...)
9/8 - FCA/Jeep Chat says it is not in production... still "parts are in but vehicle isn't being built yet."


I'm so confused! & slightly frustrated. My salesman is GREAT, but the new vehicle sales manager kinda sucks, tbh. He walked me through the order process and failed to mention that the trail cam was an option, which is one of the changes I called to inquire about making. There has been no communication from him about status updates since the VIN was assigned, & when he called to tell me that, he didn't want to actually give me the VIN. :facepalm:

My car was totaled 7/22, & insurance was a nightmare. Once we finally get everything settled, we ordered my Wrangler in hopes to have it in by late September - early October. I'm tired of sharing the hubs' Civic. :giggle::fingerscrossed:

Have you considered asking your salesman whether they'll let you order a new Willys, with the options you now want, and sell the one you already have on order, as dealer inventory?

I contacted Jeep chat and got my VIN. Insofar as the status, she told me this:

"Thank you so much for holding. I am showing that your order is in the scheduling phase of the manufacturing process. The parts required to build the vehicle are being scheduled and as soon as they available and ready, order will be scheduled for build."

I am seeing your vehicle is in the shipping stage and in transit to your selling dealership. Your delivery to dealership ETA Window is: 09/07/2020 - 09/11/2020 so it will not be that much longer until your vehicle arrives at the dealership!

They probably would, since they've already clarified that my deposit is refundable & I'm not obligated to purchase, in the event that it came in & I didn't like it (fat chance, lol) or I found another to purchase before it's delivered. But, to be honest, I don't know that I would want to do that & have to order and wait all over again. :blush:

I didn’t realize they would give the build date and an actual delivery window. Very cool.
