2007 Wrangler Delays

Those of you who have the 2007 Wrangler, how long did it take for you to recieve your Jeep? I ordered mine back in September, and first it was delayed from October to November. Now I am being told that I may receive it some time in December, but they are not sure. Anybody else having this problem? I called a couple of different dealers and they told me that Jeep is just not building Saharas right now and they do not know when they are planning to.

Mike, I ordered my JK Wrangler 4 door Unlimited X on September 22, 2006. It was shipped from DCX on 10-25 and arrived at my CT dealer on Saturday November 3rd, four days ahead of the aniticipated arrival date. I took delivery on Monday.
What is the reason for the delay on the build of your Unlimited? I have heard that those who ordered the MYGIG radio are being held up due to supply problems, but if that wasn't on your order, you should press the dealer and DCX consumer relations for a detalied reason. As for the dealer excuse that DCX is "just not building Sahara's right now", that sounds like bunk to me.

Like I said, I think that is bunk! Perhaps your dealer exceeded his allotment with your order and therefore must wait until he is given another one, which may not be until December/January. I highly doubt that Jeep is not building the Sahara - this whole Wrangler line is exccedingly popular and is selling out most everywhere, so why would DCX stop production on one of the models?? I think your dealer is feeding you crap. Call the DCX consumer hotline and give them the VON, (which your dealer would have been given when he placed your order), or the VIN, (which would have been assigned when DCX started production of your Jeep). There are build codes, whcih will tell you the stage of the build, the transport, if there are any delays, etc. Good luck, and keep pressing unitl you get some real answers.

Why?? What reason did he give for DCX's alleged production stop? And why not the two door 4x4 too? Sounds fishy; I haven't read about any production stop on any other Jeep forums. The only thing I have read about, delay-wise, is for Rubicons. Apparently the demand is much greater than Jeep anticipated so orders for those are pushed out to January/February for delivery dates.

i called jeep directly to ask them and the customer service rep would not help unless i had a von or vin number for the vehicle. i took me all day to get the von number from the dealer and it was too late to call jeep back. i'm going to call tomorrow in the morning and see what i can find out. i asked the dealer about the delays and he said that they didn't know why there are delays and that jeep didn't tell them.

talked to jeep's customer service today to see what is going on. they told me that it would be sometime after january. according to the customer service rep there is a shortage of supplies and they are unable to keeo up with their orders. In January they may have a more accurate eta for me. a 5 month wait is a long time.

Sorry to hear that - what a bummer!! If I were you, I would look around in your area for dealer inventory of Sahara's and see if you can get one that is already on a lot somewhere, though you may have to pay a bit more for it. Whether that is worth it, of course depends upon how much you want/need it. If you find one and can make a deal, I would think that you could cancel the contract you have with your dealer, as all contracts, (at least here in CT), have a maximum delivery date, which is usually 90 days after the date of the order. A five month wait is not only outrageous, but unfair, given the date you placed your order and hosuld constitue a material breach.
You should also call back DCX and find out when the order for your Jeep was placed: it sounds to me like your dealer sat on your order for a while, since i ordered mine in late September and I got it last week. While it's an X and not a Sahara, from what I have been reading, the demand is for the Rubicons and the MYGIG radios, not a basic Sahara. I feel for you though, and I would be pissed if it were me!

I guess it may be a local dealership thing. I wash my wrangler every few weeks on Rt 46 in Northern New Jersey, right across the street from a Jeep dealership and passed by a few days ago to check out the new 07's. They had over 4 different ones outside and one Sahara model inside. Good luck

I am in the same boat. I ordered a Rubicon and was told it would be here the middle of December. that was the middle of Novmber.

Once you have the VON you can ask the customer service person what the status code is, under the wrangler general discussion there is a thread "need help with the status of my jeep" and the monitor gave a list of all the codes.

My jeep's status code is BG - means on hold. Once you get to D1 you are gate line and your schedule is set.

at this piont I am going to wait until after the 1st to decide if I want to ask for my deposit back.

i need to check with the dealer again to see if he has any update for an eta. i heard the dealers found out about their allocations a couple of days ago. the wait doesn't bother me so much, but it is not knowing when it will be ready.

I am pumped. The dealer just called, my jeep just went to "D" status. Not that I don't trust him (I have never met him, I ordered over the phone since they had the allocation) but I called customer service to confirm and it is in "D".

The dealer here in San Angelo has a nice Silver one they just got it in, but it will be gone real fast.

Unhappy Here is the poop from DC.

The Hard Tops are delayed SWB and LWB: TBD

DMF 4:10 Rear-Ends with Automatic Trans are now held up till March 12th 2007

DSH Rear Lockers held till March 12th

GCH 1/2 Doors 1/31/2007

RER My Gig Navigation held till 12/18/2006

If you like I can keep you posted.

What this means if you a Rubicon, Hard Top or Dual Top, Or a Towing Package

If there are any changes I will let you know.

In the event your rig is already in "D" Status or better you will get it on time, if it just moved to "BG" it will be delayed until the restrictions are lifted. We only had 7 Rubicon slip under the restriction I still have 21 that are suspended.

i just moved to d status and have a build date of the second week of january. one thing that has been good about this delay is that i have been able to find out the problems that people have been finding with this vehicle. it sucks going into a new vehicle blind and not knowing what defects to look for. now if i could only figure out if i want the blue or the silver. they are both great looking colors.

Sounds like!

It looks like your orders are moving right along...

BTW: The new MYGIG Navigation "RER" is now where a dealer can add it to your order. If you are in Eaely "D" Status, BX, or BG you can ask you dealer to amend your order.

Now if you have not ordered your 2007 JK Jeep yet but would like to; just ask me and I'll be thrilled to assist you.

Mine went to D1 yesterday. Customer service said that it cannot give me the estimated ship date, does that sound right?
