Damned Yanks!!!




Just got a call from my salesman yesterday. I was supposed to receive my truck for the 1st week of April. Seems that the powers-that-be have decided to expropriate my slated-for-Canada vehicle for the US market. If this truly is the case, I get the truck one month later OR have to wait for the 13's to come out.

Be advised that this is cause for an international conflict. I'm not saying I'll do so, but I do have the power to call out our Canadian troops for a possible military retailation.

Jez sayin'....

Sounds familiar...posted about this yesterday. I was told by my salesman that my ride should be in early May, as it turns out he still hasn't recieved a comfirmation of the official delivery date. WTF?? On the bright side it gives me a little more time to sell my M3.

Update;

After being pissed at my salesman, the delaership, Jeep and the American people in general for the last 10 months, I broke down & called my salesman to order a 2013. Which, it seems, is no longer available. WTF???

He then informs me that my original order was never cancelled but was left in the system. Because the dealership never got the inital delivery and the 2013's were almost exclusively allotted to the US market, they were 101% positive they were getting a 2014. Which is out in 3 months, or so they say. I was told to expect a 3-6 month delivery date.

So, I'm back AGAIN, pride in my hat, patiently waiting for my truck AGAIN.

I have no pride whatsoever...

If you look at what the 2014's come with, compared to the '12 & '13's, you will be happy you waited! Good thing you didn't call out the troops!

Yes, I could have a US model shipped here, we do it all the time. Ends up costing a tad more due to import/shipping costs, but it's our dealers attitude towards a US vehicle which has me more apprehensive.

The exact same car/truck here in Canada usually goes for a solid 10% more up here. With more'n more canucks buying down south, it's killing canadian dealerships.

So if you pull in for work under warranty with your US-purchased vehicle at the same time as 15 other vehicles bought in Canada, guess who gets taught a lesson

To be honest, I'm not too optimistic. I will patiently wait for up to 6 months and see what happens. I will let you know either way, 'cause I know that you will all be biting fingernails worrying for me...
