hello, buying my compass soon.. i hope.

Just found the forums and thought i'd say hi..

If my dealer can find a manual shift, i'll be test driving and unless it's really disapointing i'll be sealing the deal shortly after I drove the CVT and i just did'nt like it at all.

Hopefully Jeep Green, 4X4, manual, with all the bells and whistles i can get. Including the dealer addon rear seat DVD. And gotta keep the regular head unit for the aux in i suppose..

Well glad i found your site hopefully i be back with my jeep soon..

Good luck! I just ordered mine about 2 weeks ago. Are you planning to order it? It will probably be difficult to find one off the lot manual with all the stuff you want. I'm told it takes 8-10 weeks to order, I'll keep you posted once they provide a VIN #. I LOVE the Jeep Green, that's what I got, limited 4x4.

Some people just have to have stick, I'm sure you will love it! The first time I drove the CVT, I hated it too, but once I test drove it again in the limited 4x4 and it was nicer inside, it was a completely different feel and I loved it.

Ordered it tonight

So i ordered it tonight.

Compass Sport 4x4
Manual
jeep green
"E" package
driver + Security Conv Packages
heated seats
Yes essential
gray interior
standard head unit, gotta have that Aux input
9 speaker BA sound
Sirius Satilite

$21,050 (US) after rebates, and not bad on the trade either (maybe could have got another $200-300, but nothing significant.

After i got to test drive a manual Patriot i like the clutch feel and the location of the shifter a lot more then i figured i would.

They say 6weeks, but I'm guessing it's gonna more like 8 after hearing the stories on the board.

Now the wait begins

lol, funny story about that, i weant to the "Auto-Mall", weant to the Chrysler/Jeep dealer. Stood around for 10 minutes, someone said we'll be with you shortly, stood around another 10 minutes, wandered around looking at Nitro's and Chargers for 15 minutes, came back in, asked if there was anyone availlble to help me, they said someone should be shortly... So i told them to nevermind, I'll order my jeep elsewhere.

I weant to Romano and the first salesman that came up to me was a really nice guy. So i gave him my business

So i called jeep today to check the status and its still stuck in JB since the 1st of the month. I then called the dealer to find out that the sales person doesn't work there anymore. So i left a message for the other lady that knows about my sale (3 hours later i call back) and she is off today. So i called jeep back and they are going to contact the dealer for me and see what is going on with the order. I hope you got yours today though.

I picked mine up last night.. did'nt get round to posting.

It's weird though that some orders are quick and some not so much. Does your Ralleye edition come with a sunroof?? I know that on the patriot forums those ordered with sunroofs took much longer.

And that JB code is weird also. I never got that when checking the order status.. you think that has anything to do with the ralleye?

Anyways.. here's to hoping yours shows up soon. And pics, because i haven't seen the ralleye outside of review or pro picss.

update

I stopped at the dealer today and the district manager for jeep was there yesterday and said that JB is because of the rallye package and the extra body details. The manager called the DM to see if he can put a rush on it as I am going to PA next weekend....so lets all hope.
