Default Order Frustrations??

I signed the deal and the dealer ordered my CC/6'4/Hemi+8 speed Sport April 16th.

From what I gather from reading this board, the 8 speed is now on restriction on some models.

I just got off the phone with the dealership, who is now going back and forth with Ram trying to figure out why/how they are wanting to change a sold order from three weeks ago ... and put a 6 speed transmission in my truck. Has anyone else heard this???

If this is the case, they can either a) get me the exact truck that I ordered, b) order me a '14 when order banks open for the same price as what I negotiated for the '13, or c) give me a ride over to Ford or GM. This should be a fun experience - I should not have to worry about whether or not I am going to get my truck or not.

Just tell them that you want just what you ordered, no exceptions
definitely no screwed up Chrysler Electronic 6 speed automatic ) 65RFE ( RFE = rear wheel drive Fully Electronic )
or
Be first in line to order a 2014 around June 5th
production starts about July 17th
delivered in mid to late September or early October


New factory ordered HEMI w/ 8 speeds are now on restriction, meaning they don't have any 8 speeds in current stock
this restriction went into place April 30th

I am just praying that since I had my order in before the restriction came into effect that I will be ok.

Did you sign a Vehicle Purchase Ageement?

If you did they have to give you exactly what you ordered as it is a binding legal contract of sale.

If you only signed a Vehicle Purchase Order then that is just a promise to order the vehicle for a negotiated price.

I signed a pink paper with all the pricing details on it so I assume thats the purchase agreement. I have contacted RAM twice to confirm that I am getting the 8 Speed and they have said yes and that I am now on a Firm Schedule. I should be good to go.

Ram Customer Service cannot look up my name in their system to see if there is a processed sold order. Fair enough.

Dealer sales manager is away for the week. I do not have a VON, VIN, nothing ... my salesman doesn't know anything. I signed and left a deposit on April 18th.

I'm not really sure how much longer I can deal with the uncertainty.

something seems fishy for you. I ordered April 30th and already have my VON and they have accepted the order.

I ordered my truck the same day as you and I am in D status. Have been for almost a week now so who knows what's going to happen.
