Hi guys,

I placed an order for my Jeep 2 weeks ago, on 9/24. Called the dealer today to check for the VON, but was told that it's not available 'instantaneously'. I was assured that the order was placed 'soon' after my order was made.

Question: Is this normal or am I getting the run around?

I don't care about the 500 clam deposit, but if this is fishy, then I need to think of ordering through another dealer!!

What say ye? TIA for any advice!!

Nervous in Kansas,

-- Remi

P.S. It's an '08 Yellow Rubi, dual top, auto, tinted, tow pkg, 6-CD

I placed two orders last year with two different dealers. The first dealer I went in and did it in person. Placed my deposit and walked out with a printed order sheet with my VON on it. Second dealer I ordered it over the phone, and had a VON before I hung up. The dealer will get the VON as soon as the order is placed, even if they have no allocations. It may be time for you to think about getting your deposit back and visiting a different dealer.

Sounds fishy to me...
I placed my order on the phone and before my dealer hung up I had my VON.

Sounds to me like this dealership may only have one person who inputs orders and they may only do it once a week or something????? Some smaller dealerships used to do that.
