First brand new vehicle ever!

Hello all! I have driven minivans for years - all used. Ford Windstar, Mercury Villager, Plymouth Voyager, Dodge Grand Caravan, and T&C Touring. I ordered my Pacifica Limited on 8/1. Waiting impatiently for delivery (ETA 10/1)! Tried to use the vehicle order tracking system - no luck. But at least I have a VIN.

Welcome to the forum. I was told it may take 8-12 weeks but mine actually took only 5 weeks and 1 day from original factory order placement to arrival at my dealer 25 miles south of Houston. Good luck!

I orderd a limited on 8/1 as well. Be interesting to see when we get them in. Who gave you your VIN #? My dealer said that Chrysler only processes orders the second Tuesday or Thursday of each month (which would be today). So i assumed VIN and order information would still be unavailable.

Hi All, Thanks for the warm welcome. I received my VIN and VON from my dealer. I called Chrysler today and they said my vehicle was in stage D1 - all materials gathered and ready for build. Odd thing - I ordered Dark Cordovan Pearl and the representative said it was Mocha Java. She said the paint color doesn't always have the same name as the marketed color. She also said stage C through D1 usually takes 3 weeks (today is 9 days since I ordered). I called 1-800-334-9200. If you call you will need your vehicle order number or last 8 of the VIN. The rep said they are available 24 hours/day and to call every day if I wanted to...a weekly call is likely good.

I ordered the Limited model - dark cordovan pearl with black/deep mocha interior (was going to go with black/alloy but the sills were white). Sunroof instead of 8th seat, spare instead of vacuum, tow group package, emergency kit group, interior protection package, splash guards, $1995 Uconnect and engine block heater. I chose to go with snow tires instead of the 20" tires (adding snows on the 20" would mean a new set of wheels also), the $2795 Uconnect isn't necessary for my purposes nor is the advanced safety tec group - both are expensive options.

Have fun!

I ordered mine on 7/28/2016 and I have a VIN# as of 8/11. The Pacifica factory was actually shut down for two weeks for summer break and they restarted the line on 8/8/2016. I was told my actual build date was 8/10/2016 and my contact would let me know when it actually ships. I am excited and can't wait. Will be #31 and I sold my 2014 Town and Country the day I ordered the Pacifica, so I am driving slow in my 85 Caravan....I ordered a loaded Limited in Tusk White with Black / Alloy interior.
