I spoke to my sales guy because while I had a VON, I was not notified of the assigned VIN within the expected timeframe. That may have lit a fire under him; not sure.

Back then there was so much FUD about the failing 9-speed transmissions that some of us wanted to make sure our new builds were not being used by the dealership for test drives. IOW, we wanted to be the ones to break everything in, not some hotdogger driving it like they stole it. With the tracking available then, some were actually meeting the car hauler as it ph ulled into the dealership. I found my new build listed on the dealer's website; like saying come and get it. I called my sales guy and asked that it not be used for test drives. But if you are leasing your 2017 too, maybe you don't mind it being used as a test driver.
Au contraire! The leasing notwithstanding (treat as your own to always leave open the option to purchase at the end), one of the main reasons of the factory order was to make sure I got a Cherokee with NO miles on it. I don't expect to be able to be there at the moment it rolls in, but I'm leaving strict instructions that miles on that odometer better not exceed the dimensions of the dealership . And don't put gas in. Deliver, prep, park, period.

I checked with the dealership and was told they had to pass the price increase along to me. I PMed Milous and he told me what exact terms to state to the dealership. A day later the dealership called me to inform they were delighted that the original pricing stood. In that case, the $25 paid off.
I guess its cheap insurance. What not get Milous to come over here. Should probably merge like the fortune 500 companies. Have more members and more variety.

Well, to my shock my dealer emailed me this morning with the build sheet, which shows that the order is now in D1 status and expected ship date is 6/9, a mere FIVE weeks after I ordered it. So much for delays because of shifting the plant. I'm happy, but i wanted another month to end my lease neatly... :-)
