    Something doesn’t sound right in whole deal.Dealers regional customer service rep could do something to get it.And why would you pay for a ordered jeep that you don’t have.And title won’t go to any lender intell dealer transfers it

    First there is no way you should have signed your money away without it being delivered and inspected. Water under the bridge. FCA has little power since the railroad and transportation company are responsible. My dealer said they had a Jeep sit at the rail drop for 45 days before they finally got a letter from FCA and the transport company saying they could pick it up and trailer it back to their dealership.
    Email [email protected] and briefly describe problem to him and maybe their executive office have some pull to get it released/delivered. I emailed him when mine was in permanent D status. Within 1 day it was built and loaded on a rail car with a "hot vehicle" transport order.

    It is straight up ridiculous that this has not been resolved yet. You have way more patience than me. I'd be screaming at this point.

    If your battery has been sitting empty for over a month, it's gone. Jumping it won't help.
    They need to put in a (actually two) new battery(s).

    I've ordered a few vehicles. Never had title transfer or lender involvement until I took delivery. At this point, you are the registered owner, your lender is the title holder, and have never taken possession? :facepalm: You might call the CA BBB and ask about the consumer protection law on this situation. Sounds like something improper was done on the deal. If you're at the point of walking on the deal, contact your lender. They should be able to sort out the issues. But first you need to read any documents you signed.

    I didn’t lease it, I bought it. The dealer is a customer of mine and I did it to help his year end numbers. It was supposed to be delivered Jan 10th. And instead come in much later. Otherwise, I would have waited.

    That explains how you got the title and no jeep. Don't you think the transport company is just trying to protect themselves by insisting on only dealing with the legal owner that they assume is FCA? If it is communicated to them that the credit union is the legal owner, don't you think they would release it to the credit union?

    It may even be that the legal ownership issue is what's causing the problem.

    A little off topic, but still about Mira Loma yard. I had put a deposit on a truck the dealer had ordered for stock, but had already started advertising before they received it. My friend asked for the VIN. He worked as a car hauler and was in and out of Mira Loma yard every day. He had some help locating it when it came in and intercepted it, drove it 5 feet and crawled under it and marked the muffler with a felt pen with his name and date. Months later he showed me where he had marked it. Said he wanted to tell me he drove it before me. He's a friend of over 40 years. Funny as hell.
