Sublime1320, I understand your pain as my last car sat in KZ (released to be shipped) for a month (hope that doesn't happen to you). FCA is Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. You're in a good status just keep checking as they have to get a full load heading your way before it starts moving. My new car has been sitting in KZ for a little while and today it shows in transit, no ETA yet. Hang in there as everyone will tell you, it will be worth it.

Actually NO...! It's not worth it. As I wouldn't have ordered it this year... I'd have just waited.
Now, I will bring it home from the dealer and park it.
Meanwhile I'll be making car AND insurance payments on something I cannot drive.
My dealer said 6 to 8 weeks. That's why I decided to order it.
For a while, Chrysler Customer Care was saying the same thing.
Now they're saying 8 to 10 weeks.
I'm about to tell the dealer I want my $2k downpayment back and I MIGHT order something next year.

Just wait until it comes in damaged and you aren't able to take delivery! Believe me, waiting once was hard enough. Starting the whole process over again has really made me rethink how much I even want my car

Well, I just had some great news. Yesterday I called my dealer and they told me the car is now being assigned a shipper and will come by truck from the factory.
Common sense would say that delivery by truck would be much faster than anything involving a train, but I'm not holding my breath for anything at this point.
I guess let's see how long it takes to get a shipper and be delivered.
My dealer told me to call them on Thursday.

Well see not as bad as you were amp'ing yourself up for. Hope you get some great rides before you have to put it up and post some pics when you get it. I haven't heard anything new on mine, still in transit and no one knows where. Thank God I have a better car now to enjoy until it shows up. Just waiting to clay and wax that PCP.

And judging by the posts on this thread, it's the norm.
Just think about that... 40, 50, 60k per car just sitting there waiting in limbo.
Pathetic and unacceptable.
I dont think that is the norm. It does vary depending on many factors. If your car is built with no ship date then it is the shipper who is probably waiting on other cars to fill its transport and not send it half empty to whatever area your dealer is in.
I ordered my redeye Aug. 16 and it was delivered Sept. 18.
I have 2 friends who ordered hellcats last year both received them in about the same amount of time.
Be patient, it's well worth the wait!

Most of the KZ codes are here


The thing is, we have no official confirmation on these. We really can't confirm they are 100% correct

Gotcha.

Thread I got the KZLD info from. Guy says he has a dealer login info, but like you said, no hard proof.

What does KZLD mean?

You can use this link later to check on your build, when the build sheet appears the car is built, when the window sticker appears it is status KZ and ready to ship.

When I ordered my SRT in 2015 I just figured it will get here when it get's here...It would be like a belated birthday present...
