It's an introduction section and your first post. Welcome.


I would be disappointed also. You mean it's been over two months and no truck???
Hope they gave you a loaner all that time. My advice would be more to control your outrage. I would have Chrysler/Fiat involved in addition to the dealer.

Nine weeks is BS. I ship and receive items from overseas in a matter of 3 days. This sounds like what the dealers used to call a Sunny Side Job. That is, park your vehicle on the sunny side of the building and let you rot.


Depending upon where you are, you may be able to invoke the lemon law. Even if you don't invoke it, just mentioning it may get faster results. That has worked for me in the past.

I have had chrysler Canada involved from the beginning. They have a hard time calling me back because they have no news on the part, other than to give me a date in witch it is going to be at the dealer. I asked if they new about this new invention called an airplane to ship my parts. I guess they thought shipping means ship on water. I have not heard about a lemon law before I will look into it.
I did get a loner truck but they can not tow anything. It has screwed me for getting wood and hunting.
Thanks

Still hideous. No wonder here in South Florida we are plagued with "Canuks" flocking for the winter. Weather sucks in Canada along with business practices. Now we yearly bear the burden of crowded roads, churches, waters and business with that Ontario plate


From you story I can now understand more why so many want out of that place. Delays like that are not normal business practice and should not be tolerated.

The oil cooler is delayed again. All they can tell me is that it is on its way. I just want my truck back and hope they can get there parts availability problems fixed sooner than later.

On a better note some were wondering about towing. I have done quite a bit and it performs outstanding. Nice and smooth, quiet and best of all great fuel economy. Coming from a GMC with the 5.3l its a world of difference.

Woah, Canada hate. Why do you say business practices in Canada suck? As if these problems are because of Canada. It is just something that happens everywhere. And last time I checked Florida wasn't the best at protecting consumers. I seem to remember half the population being foreclosed on and a lot of empty strip malls.

You better not open that can of worms. Actually the problems are explicitly because Canada. Less population=less sales= less demand for parts=longer delays. Or are we not using logic?

You're stepping into the realm of jingoism, I thought Canadians were above that?

Not going to argue the facts in this issue. Over two months to wait for a part is beyond the ridiculous. No reasonable business operation should have such go on.


Canadians flock to the U.S. in droves to buy fuel, vacation and live. Canadian taxes and product prices are a reflection of huge government control. Also add the anti-gun regulations that make hunting there a project today.


Florida is 2nd in job creation to Texas and enjoying a wild economy. Unfortunately, it's also getting crowded, often with Canadians.

This part was not found in Canada or the US. That is why they had to order it from overseas. Today is the day the part is coming again, we will see. My hope is that they are building a bank of parts so these delays do not happen in the future.

That's a shallow assessment 10%.

I welcome the Canadians to South Florida. Their business in our local economies is very welcome. Also please note, that we Floridians do not have a state income tax, perhaps you are smart enough to know that sales taxes, hotel taxes and alike provide some of the monies for the state government and I for one would like to keep it that way.
