Well as I posted in another thread:
Well I was just told by my dealer that my van is no longer being shipped to me (well, the dealership). It's being sent back to the factory from CA (last location). And can no longer tell me when I will get it. I asked him about placing a new order (one with the seat color I wanted, but wasn't available when I placed my order at the beginning of January.), but he said his system will no longer allow ordering of the Hybrid.
He did give me an option to get a refund of my down payment, and IF the van does come in, I'll still get first call for it. But has to get back to me on how I can get my refund.
So in my case:
1. The recall prohibits dealers from selling any new or used hybrid until the recall has been cleared, ie the auto fixed.
2. The recall caused Chrysler to return all hybrids in transit from the factory to dealers back to the factory for recall fix.
3. Hybrids now on dealer lots (new or used) can not be sold and must have the recall cleared before they can be offered for sale. Do we know if these vehicles will be shipped back to the factory for the recall action?
6. No firm dates have been given to customers with existing Hybrids when dealers will have parts to clear the recall. Best guess 3rd or 4th quarter.
Seems to be true. For #6, if in fact, less than 500 vans was made (I thought I read about 250) strange they cannot get the diode for that many vehicles since I'm sure not all vans will come back at the exact same time, they should be able to keep up and replace the detective part. But more I think about it, the factory isn't really made to replace a part, so maybe it'll take days to fix each van.
Chrysler should offer those that did a early pre-sale, the 2018 model for the same price (if the price really does change from the 2017) and still offer the Level 2 charger.. Hmm I wonder what's going to happen about my level 2 charger..
