I have a 2.0 and a 3.6 on order. Both in my name and only paid deposit for one. Dealer and salesman are cool and understand that this is a bunch of BS. They also know that both Jeeps will sell no matter what. So if the piece of crap 2.0 (which I’m considering not getting whatsoever) is pushed to the right even more, I’ll have a 3.6 coming in as a backup. I was also told the Diesel is pushed out to 2020. I bet it never even gets put into production. What a joke.

Anyways, I am fed up with having only 1 vehicle to share with my wife, and I assume a lot of people are in the same boat of frustration.

Long story short, Jeep sucks! Good luck everyone.

I just made a 3.6 order as well. My dealer let me also do keep the 2.0 on order and the 3.6. Still think the 3.6 shows up first. They said it would no problem selling both vehicles.

Yes Brandon, I find it frustrating to share a vehicle with your wife too. You really should buy a Jeep - just for her.

Have to say, I feel like such a hypocrite.

I’m hoping to wait it out for the 2.0, and if I don’t, I’ll end up with a 3.6.

That said, I kind of like every time I see someone bail. Not sure if Jeep will actually feel the pain from people bailing or even notice, but the “principles” portion of me can’t stand supporting a company with such opaque tactics.

I wish there was a strong competitor that I could support, instead... but they’ve got me!

I ordered back in the beginning of March, was told it would be 6-8 weeks, I talked to another dealer at the same time that offered me a much lower price. However, they stated it would not be ready until July 23, 2018. I stated why, and that dealer stated that is what the system order is showing. I asked did he think the other dealer was not being truthful about the time frame, he stated he was unsure, and maybe their system was showing something different, but he was probably full of it. I changed my order to the other dealer about a week later due to significant lower price and believing that the first dealer was lying about about the length of time. My new dealer has been brutally honest every-time I contact him about my status about Jeep being a mess, and him not having any status updates. However, yesterday he stated:
Looks like the vehicle should be released from the factory this week and will be well earlier than estimated.

Thanks, I've emailed them too. Everyone is showing the same status for me. It's really annoying that they don't prioritize builds by order date. Not that anyone's actually received their turbos yet, but I guarantee there's some dude who ordered last week who's order will slide in front of mine.

That’s great to hear.

Are you in D1? What is your estimated “ship” (really, build) date? It would probably have to be today or tomorrow if it’s actuslly being released from the factory this week.

Hate to be a downer but I’d be very pleasantly shocked if that happens. Fingers crossed, though!

Ordered 2/14/18, 2.0 w/ granite, headliner, black hard top.
Canceled my order today. Not worth investing in an incompetent company.
I’m starting to feel frustrated myself
