My JKUR is Lost After Assembly!?

Our new Gecko JKUR came off the assembly line on Aug 31st at 9:10PM - Toledo Supplier Park, OH

At 10:08PM on the 31st it "Shipped To Storage (JS) - Toledo Supplier Park, OH
Aug 31st, 11:26PM it was "In Bay At Facility". - Toledo Supplier Park, OH
Sep 1st, 8:47PM it "Departed Facility" - Toledo Rail, OH
Sep 1st, 8:49PM status changed to "In Bay At Facility" - Toledo Rail, OH
Sep 1st, 8:57PM it changed again to "In Bay At Facility" - Awhc - Toledo Ottawa South, OH
Sep 1st, 8:57PM status changed to "Adv Ship Notice to Dest Ramp" - Awhc - Toledo Ottawa South, OH
Sept 1st, 9:00PM - "Carrier Can Put On Hold" - Location N/A

There are no other updates since Sep 1st... WTF!!!

Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about this situation!? I'm pretty frustrated at this point since it was originally supposed to arrive at the local storage depot today.

Many possibilities, however in auto manufacturing this is most often a sign the vehicle is waiting for a part or has a technical issue and is in rectification. In the worst case, it has transit damage that must be repaired. Think positive thoughts, it may still be in transit and someone forgot to record its status.

Mine was also put on hold once. Waiting for more rigs to load up on the truck going to my dealer from the local transfer area from the train I believe. Mine was brief though. A couple of days.

Usually they go to the dreaded "I" status before the JS status. It means there was a quality control inspection or a tech issue with the Jeep. It sucks I had one stuck in that status for 3 months one time.

Mine did the same thing. Our seller at the dealership called someone and we had it within a couple days.

12 days with no status update!?

I've looked at the Status and Information report for a couple dozen JKURs sitting on local area dealers' lots and NONE of them has a more than a day or two without an update of some kind.

I forwarded the print out of mine to the Fleet Manager I bought it through to see if he can get any answers.

Not sure why a 5 day wait for unloading from railcar to the dealer, but hey, I'm just glad to finally have an idea when it will get here and no longer stuck in the Toledo black hole.

I was picking mine up at the dealership and my status still said scheduled for build....So at least it seems like they have gotten better on updating stuff.
