Canadian Orders take Back Burner?

Ordered my JKUR on Oct 17th and still no VIN! I have been watching this thread http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/how...ost1757152here and there's guys ordering way after me ( South of the border ) and will be getting their Jeeps before the end of Nov or even 1st week in Dec. This tells me it is true that Canadian orders take the back burner from Jeep... Not very Fair IMHO!
This is frustrating .

Delayed orders

I hear what you're saying...Canada sells less cars than California and gets its respective share of production. Wranglers are hot and production for Canada cant keep up. We are now placing orders for production in January and February so if your order hasn't scheduled, it likely wont be built before then.

Best bet is to check dealer inventories to see if they have what you are looking for. I'm not sure what part of the country you're in, but I could certainly try to help you out if you want.

i ordered Sept 13th, got my VIN a few weeks ago, called the dealer and they said its in D status. Meaning it hasn't been built yet. They told me, maybe another 45 days. So originally it was 60-90 days, now its looking longer than that.

I'm in NL but my dealer keeps me updated best they can. It's my understanding only sold orders will be filled at the moment and dealer orders take the other back burner behind us. There isn't a loaded up model to my specs anywhere in Canada right now so that's the problem, we've checked, but much appreciated for the offer...

Mine was ordered on Oct 19 still no vin but I pick her up on tuesday. I checked with the dealer on Monday no luck and get a call on Saturday saying its in. Check your dealer web site, if its up and says its in transit then you might have some luck.

I ordered on Sept 13th. I followed up with the dealership regularly until December at which point i gave up. I have heard nothing since i stopped calling. I plan to go to the dealer (Destination Chrysler in North Vancouver) and cancel my order, and perhaps order with another dealer.

If you want to order from another dealer you could wait til summer for delivery, so you might as well stick it out and see what happens. I've heard from a reliable source Jan/Feb will be production months for us Canadian customers, and another run in April/May, so either way it should be built soon...
I'd wait and keep on their case!

I ordered on Jan 14th, I have a VIN, but no movement other than that. Its 4 weeks in. Looks like some of you have been waiting a really long time. Do they really only run canadian orders at certain times?

Im from Mississauga, ontario.... the wait is driving me nuts!

I ordered mine 3/19 and I see some in the US have had delivery already and 1 month later I still dont even have my VIN yet.. so yeah I would guess they only build for Canada at certin times.
I just Hate this waiting game. The weather is getting nicer and every time I see a Jeep on the road its like a punch in the chest.. I want my Jeep

Must be a dealer allocation issue as mine has several additional options.
4.10 gears, Leather seats and auto start.

Did you order a Rubicon? There is a Deep Cherry Red Sahara JKU at South West Jeep in London if you want to see one.

Thumbs up 2013 ordering is available in canada

funny how you know they are ordering in the US...ordering is open in Canada for 2013 models too. Maybe you need to be dealing with an up-to-date dealership in Ontario - Ottawa Dodge Chrysler Jeep at 900 St Laurent is the official Web site for the best deals on new and used cars, trucks, SUVs, and Fiat in Orleans Kanata Gatineau Hull Manotick Greely! !!!!

Thumbs up

That definitely makes sense...go to your preferred dealership anytime to place your order. Just be aware that pricing is not available yet so you would be placing an order not knowing what the final price will be

Dissed on the CALL of Duty

Yah I put an order in for 2012 Call of Duty in November 2011, I was told 200 were coming into Canada wasnt till approx January I was told none were coming to Canada. Now I see they have some in Canada. And this was by a dealer. I ended up buying a Rubicon no regrets but WM3 is what I would have wanted.

Newbie to the forum, so I am not sure if I am posting this in the right spot...
I am thinking about ordering a 2013 Wrangler Sahara. I am wondering what the usual procedure for ordering from a dealer is..the amount of the deposit etc. I am in BC.

Thanks

If you cancel do you lose your deposit?
