Looks like my order on 10/25 should now be rolling in first week of December. I was a little leery of it rolling into yet another month, fearing changes in incentive APR. I'm hoping my December odds are better in that department. I feel like I got a pretty good deal so anything over the 1.9 that I'm hoping for would be absorbed by the rebates.

Does anyone know which specific rebates may conflict with the Sam's Club incentive? I plan to drop that on them at pickup as well. I ordered a loaded limited in jazz blue, everything except the 8-pass, emer locator, and floormat/emer supply package. With my net tradein valued at about 11k, I should be out the door at just under 36k. I would like the b2b warranty but that will probably hinge on what they do for me on the apr. I have my '12 t&c through Ally, which is up in Feb.

The salesman and financing were trying to assure me it shouldn't go above 2.3 on a 60mos. My ally loan was a 1.9/60 but I bought that during the presidents' day special, and they pulled one up from another dealer a couple hours away.

If I am really getting a great deal I don't want to be a crybaby about the apr, because walking in with good credit I really feel like I'm being yanked around, and with $1k on the line,if they really try to pull some nonsense, I'm not above refusing delivery if forfeiting the deposit works out in the end.
Fyi I don't belong to a credit union, and the best my bank offered is 2.9

Welcome to the forum, couponninja! The Sam's Club rebate is considered a TDM (targeted direct mailer), so it can't be combined with any other TDMs such as from Edmunds or USAA. Chrysler Capital does have special interest rates as low as 0%, but if you take a special interest rate you'll qualify for $500 less in total incentives. Others have taken a higher rate from Chrysler just to get the $500 and then immediately refinanced into a lower rate elsewhere. Whether or not it's worth it to go through that trouble is up to you.

Picked up on 12/3. Looks like they had already applied the Sam's Club rebate since I had originally told my sales guy that I was a member of all 3. Loan guy came out giving me a line about rates running 3-5%. I told him well, we might have a problem then, since the other loan lady was swearing she hadn't seen it go over 2.9 for the last year. He manage to work it down to 2.1 with his magical powers. Chrysler was coming back with 4.3, so I forfeited the rebate since I didn't have anything up my sleeve for less than 2.1

So check my story.... went to the dealer like 10 times, to get it right... put the order in but he never gave me the build sheet after the order, one week prior to getting the car, I saw the build sheet online on Chryslers' website AND BAAMMM they put the wrong items in....

Unable to do a dealer trade because no one had what we wanted, almost a fully loaded Limited with Black interior... so they had to put another order in, so another 8 weeks.

Frustation is at a all time high here.

I really wish they would make the special order process easier.
The cars on the dealer lots only have a small number of combination of options.

A similar thing happened to me. My second order took 5 weeks instead of 8, but it was still very frustrating. Has the dealer acknowledged that the mistake was their fault? If so, you should definitely request an additional discount for the inconvenience.

Yes they have. And we will talk about that.
Also it is going faster, so I don't know if they have a way to put as a "oops priority" or what.

Where did you see the build sheet online? My salesman was sending me screenshots of his computer as the status was changing, and I tried using the the link someone provided in a different post adding my vin, but it never came back with results. In my case, we all sat at the computer and made the selections, then he printed out the sheet and gave it to me, and I was on my way. Maybe the black interior is what is pushing the date so far out?

It won't come back with any results until the vehicle enters the build stage. Then, once it's built, the window sticker also becomes available.

Sorry for taking too long to reply:
Build list: http://www.chrysler.com/webselfservice/BuildSheetServlet?vin=<put full vin here>
Window Sticker: http://www.chrysler.com/hostd/windowsticker/getWindowStickerPdf.do?vin=<put full vin here> (without the brackets)

As someone said, it will show when it is in the process , so I use this more for fun than anything, your dealer has real status

I put my VIN in and the build sheet has this on it:

Special Scheduling Condition VII

Anyone know what that means specifically? The dealer told me originally that they would try to have the factory put my build in front of others they had in process for general sale on their lot. Maybe they actually did it?

yeah that's what I was checking and I never got any results. I was also told that mine would be ahead of inventory orders since a customer order is considered "sold". It still arrived on the later end of the estimate I was given. It also went from unloaded (Jessup, MD) on one day, to on the lot at 10pm fri night in VA a few days later with no real status change between 1pm Friday and when he called me at noon Saturday.

There are so many reasons why delivery dates are missed or early. I once had a truck on order. They ran out of bench seats. For awhile if you wanted a truck it was bucket seats. This can happen to anything electronic. Something also happened to a customer order that made it delayed for ages. They wouldn't say anything but I think the customers Challenger was rear-ended on the train or while being moved. The back bumper damaged and repaired, and a short in the heated steering wheel after the airbag deployed and was rebuilt but pinched one of the heating wires when reassembled. Before ordering ask about order delays on options you are planning on getting. 'Hot Information and Scheduling Restrictions', 'Order Updates', 'Restrictions Updates', and 'Scheduling Updates.'


Putting in orders on the EZ Order system sometimes will not record changes, or will hard-code your first Vehicle Order Number and change something back to the original order. Like if you made your order, then called the next day to change the colour. It can say okay, print out the updated VON and you have it in hand. But come midnight that change is killed or something and back to the first order. So the order has to be checked the next day to verify. You need to keep going back to the Price Order Confirmation printout and keeping tabs on it. I ordered a Hellcat once. Amazingly it was made for me. We fixed that order so many times where THE ORDER SOFTWARE wasn't keeping the changes. We ended up sending the requested options to be hard-coded on their factory system. Not an order imported from the EZ Order system.


About Special Scheduling, that is used for build timing, or for special order -Editions- that cannot be entered the normal way as it is. Sold orders too. We see Scheduling Priority 4 Dealer Order. Sold orders are Priority 1. There are also priorities that it is requested not to be built until the 2 or 3rd week or the next month build as the first orders, as to wait for a special paint or such.


Thanks.
