Here is what my sequence was for my '14:
September 6: Filled out the build paperwork at my dealer.
September 12: Received an email from Dodge stating that my new vehicle order was being processed.
September 19: Received an email from Dodge stating that my vehicle was scheduled for production. The email said that my vehicle might reside in the "scheduled for production" stage for up to 2 weeks.
October 8: Received an email from Dodge stating that my vehicle was beginning to be built. The email said it could take about 10 days for the car to progress through the various build stages.
October 9: My dealer sent me an email stating to expect delivery sometime between October 17th and October 23rd.
October 14: Received an email from Dodge stating that my vehicle was sin shipment.
October 17: Vehicle arrived at the dealership.
My recollection of the VOTS is that it was typically behind the actual production stage of the vehicle. For example, my recollection is that the car was in the "production" stage on VOTS, and then one day skipped ahead to Final Inspection (without ever showing frame, paint, or trim stages). Something like that. So my experience is that VOTS is a general guide, but not particularly accurate.
I feel your anxiety. I was so anxious for the car to arrive it seemed like a very long process, but as shown above it really only took about 6 weeks from order to when I picked the car up. Hang in there! It's worth the wait.
