Hmmm...looks like you get yours before I get mine even though I ordered first! Must be due to the builds we chose. Either way we will both be pretty excited in August! :)
Yeah, I'm taking it with a grain of salt. I'd love to have it that quick, but trying to stay realistic given the delivery history noted on the forum. If it ends up being 3 weeks after this date I'd still consider it pretty fast as I was expecting the worst.

I contacted Jeep chat for an update on my order. I got the standard response saying parts have been gathered but no build date has been scheduled yet. I ordered on 6/6/20

Sounds like your jeep is at status D1. Did they give you a status code?

I ordered a 2020 manual Sahara Unlimited on May 25 2020... The last info I got from the dealer (which I had to pry out of them almost a month and a half later) was the VIN and that my wrangler would be a 2021 MY.

Did I miss the cut off for 2020 production, did the dealer sit on the order for a while? What happened? My aging 2009 Mitsu Lancer is really showing it's age and I am not sure it's going to hold out until my new Jeep is ready lol

Sounds like your dealer sat on it, I ordered 3 days after you and my 2020 gets here Friday.

If you actually had an order on May 25th and not just a price quote the 2020 orders closed June 4th. On your VIN is the 10th character an L or M? L is a 2020 model. If M then you will be paying the 2021 price increases because he didn't get the order in on time. If that's the case I would tell the dealer I'm only paying the 2020 price.

Thank you, I can see all the required materials for your order have been gathered and the plant has sequenced your order for production, it should be entering the build very soon!

Hmm, thank you for the reply. I don't know if it makes any difference, but I am in Canada if that changes anything.

As far as I know, it was an order. They took a deposit as one would expect. FWIW the tenth character in the VIN I was supplied is an M.

Thank you for the info Nerubi, much appreciated. I am glad I posted, I wouldn't have known this otherwise.

They should have given you a POC Priced Order Confirmation with the Vehicle Order Number VON, your name, year and model plus all the options with MSRP and invoice prices.
It sounds like you have a bad dealer and aren't going to be happy for the entire process.

I just looked at the paperwork I have from the transaction... I have a sheet that says configuration preview at the top but it is blank where the VIN or VON fields are shown. Where it says status it shows "pending order"

If it helps I can take a picture of it, crop out sensitive info and post it.

Should I be asking my dealership for this POC sheet? Do they use those in Canada?

Thanks again
