Hi. Bonjour. That stupid Quebecer that'll probably botch half of his sentences again because english is his second language. Hey, how you doin'. That's me.

So yeah, I fell into the mighty money pit. My steel bumper has arrived. My winch has arrived. My custom dog crate has arrived. My Gobi roof rack has arrived. Everything is in order, all the pieces are there, the buying experience has been flawless for every item.

However, a very silly, say stupid thing is happening at this very moment. Because I find myself in this strange situation where all the stuff that I bought is taking about half the space in my little tiny shed...

...AND I STILL DON'T HAVE A VIN FOR MY &%?$!*# JEEP.

Is it because of that microchip shortage? Is it because Canada comes way down in Jeep's priority list? Is it because everything sucks? I don't know. Maybe. Or not. Who knows at this point?

*SIGH*

So hi. How you doin'. I'm now that guy who's sending passive agressive text messages to my dealer saying "well then, if I knew it'd be that long, I would've grown a tree, look at it become a force of nature, chop it down when it's mature, carve a chair into it and then sit down on it so I can comfortably WAIT FOR MY JEEP!"

Meanwhile, I look stupid in a beige Compass loaner.
So. How's your off-road season, you lucky bastard?

P.S.: Just needed to vent, i'm fine (with Ross Gellar's voice).

They cannot give VIN’s to Canadians.

Jeep knows that Canada has been getting ready to invade the US for many years.

That is why Canadians buy jeeps, in prep for the invasion.

We have finally caught on.

Sorry to hear of your unusually long wait for the Jeep you ordered. I have never heard of this happening before this current chip shortage event and not sure I could be patient and not nag the dealership I ordered through.

I actually really like your growing a tree to make a chair to comfortably wait for your Jeep comment and I may steal it to use in the future.

Not bragging or anything, but yes, I am one of those lucky bastards enjoying my Jeep since I bought mine before the 2020 and 2021 craziness spread all over. I can sort of associate with your feeling while driving the compass since I've been given one as a loaner. You just don't get any respect when driving it. No Jeep waves, no impressed looks from girls... nothing.

Anyway, hang in there and wait it out since it's going to be worth it once you get it and all your extras on it.

I am sorry you‘re suffering through a longer wait than those of us south of the great white north, but I literally cackled out loud for several minutes at this turn of phrase. Bravo.

I got way too much time to think of jokes about it, I guess...while I look stupid in a stupid beige, stupid Compass that's too stupid to be stupid...

Yeah, that scary Hyundai Accent invasion is coming for you. Beware, Vermont green Subies...

It's a bad time to special order, that's for sure. I would tell you to grab one off the lot, assuming they have some up there. Many still in stock in the US.

I secretly wish my dog has a dump in that Compass. But she's well behaved. Of course, she's well behaved.

There's none. Sold out. My Jeep dealer's lot is full of used Cherokees since he has nothing better to show off. It's kind of sad.

I had a peek to see if other dealers had something to offer. Nada, man. There's a used fully loaded Rubicon somewhere with way too much mileage on it. Not interested.

And that's not so much of a special order. It's a bone stock Sport S with the towing package and the diff locker. That's it. Nothing too special. Yet, if it keeps going that way, i'm not sure i'll have a 2021 model.

Wait, I'm supposed to get impressed looks from girls? That feature of my Jeep seems to be disabled. Maybe I can enable it with my Tazer?

Hey! Nothing wrong with having a Compass. I had a Compass and I traded it in for a 4xe. Mine was a limited edition, 4x4, billet silver with black roof...
That “no respect when driving” is 100% accurate. However, when we had a winter storm in Texas earlier this year, I had so much fun in the snow with my Compass, while my neighbors would just stare from their Hyundai Accents while they charged their phones.
I really liked it, but do I miss it? Not really.

Btw, it took me a whole month to get my 4xe and I didn’t even custom order. One week going to dealerships, and 3 weeks of waiting for one that was already in transit. So I kind of understand about 40% of your frustration.

Have you tried bribing the factory with poutine? If that doesn't work, threaten them with a flock of Canada Geese...those birds are ruthless.

Says there's nothing wrong with having a Compass, then traded it in the very next sentence. :LOL:
