Lost our jeep???

Hi guys,
Wife and I ordered a new 2010 wrangler 2dr hardtop with auto. trailer tow,side air bags,remote start,nav, red rock. ordered on APRIL 13th 2010!!!!!!!!!!!
Still not here. Dealer says hard tops harder to get then they said the factory took it off the line for a inspection. This is getting weird! Any ideas??

Thanks in advance.

Did you pay anything down? If you did then they are probably putting you off and not concerned because they already have some money. Jeeps are being shipped here no problems, and hard top shouldn't be an issue.

then again, there's alot of issues with the JK that they might be addressing on all production before shipping.


EDIT:

Looking through several places, it seems several people who order Jeeps have been told to expect a long delay.

I ordered my 2dr back on April 22nd, had a VIN by April 30th and picked it up over a month ago. It had a soft top and 1/2 doors. Maybe you got caught in the change-over cutoff for the 2011 models.

Sorry to hear you're having such a long delay. That must be the longest wait in history, I can't imagine being that excited for a new Jeep, and having to wait over 3 months. I'd be flipping out. Hope you "find" it soon!

If your Jeep got that far along, it has a VIN. Ask the dealer for the VIN and get someone else to check it. With the VIN you can probably get a status code from the Chrysler Customer Assistance Center at 800-992-1997. There are also folks at other dealers and all over the net that will run the number and see what it's status code is. You can then use this thread to see what the code means.

I ordered my Jeep on 4/12/10 and took delivery on 5/5/10. I was expecting to wait at least 2 weeks longer. I would definitely have the dealer find out what's taking so long.

My Lovely Bride ordered her '10 Rubicon on May 14th and picked it up on June 12th, and it had already been at the Dealer's for a few days! Personally, it sounds to me like what we used to call "fell off the truck" and they're scrambling to get it fixed for you. I'd be very wary about taking possession of it without scrutinizing the hell out of it first, IF you even want to take that chance anymore!

Right, they'll get that much faster.

I'm from Jersey too. That's not what "fell off the truck" means.

I confess, the Jeep Dealership felt bad for me so they shipped it to my house. Just kidding, hang in there, I hope you get it soon, it will be well worth the wait! Good luck.

This just means they took it out for a beer run.

Different context...YOU know! In the car business, it does, primarily because it can happen. In the "supply" business (TV's, stereos, MP3's and IPOD's, cameras and the like, as well as tools, jewelry, musical instruments, appliances, etc...small stuff, like that), it means you can get it, uhhh, "wholesale"!

Of course, I've never succumbed to that particular temptation...

Do you have your VIN for it? Cause if so, then if anything is holding up that particular one, such the inspection, then maybe they really are waiting on that one particular jeep.

Otherwise, seems like they should be able to find that one with the options you want. Now I couldnt find a 2010 with the options I want and ordered from the factory.

As is, they are taking orders for the factory for the 2011 models, delivery around beginning of October.

Just FYI.

Actually I've heard that they underestimated the amount of people that wanted to order the hard tops and didn't produce nearly enough, now with the 2011 model out they have even more supply issues to deal with. Shoulda bought a TJ
