    What did we,
    as enthusiasts,
    Do to deserve the shenanigans
    Of FCA.
    It is not solely the shitty dollar either,
    It is something else,
    Lets hear some feedback!

    My vote is for USA Head Office management,
    They have taken sole control and will not relinquish...

    What I can't understand is FCA is number one in Canada for sales of new vehicles and this is how they treat the customers buying their "halo" car??!!
    You would think we would at very least be treated with respect?!

    Seriously folks, we make the cars and guys in the plant can't even buy one.
    How long before they get fed up??!!!!

    Took them 10 months to deliver my car, but for 9 months I had to wonder if and when it would EVER come. No contact from FCA , no vin# nothing..... For 9 months....
    Lack of respect for Canadians is disappointing to say the least.
    A lottery WTF????!!!!!!!!!

    They delivered less cars to Canada than Texas last year!! Considering we are such a small part of the market it feels like ever more of an insult they can't fill our orders in a timely fashion and communicate status to either us or dealers

    Folks are ordering cars in the states and taking delivery in very short periods of time, American dealers continue to have cars on lots without owners.
    Yet Canadians who ordered 18 months ago still wait and wonder??

    Keep this up FCA and you won't be number one in sales in Canada for long.
    I didn't trade my Subaru on a AWD Charger or Ram 4x4 this winter like I had planned thanks to the BS and way I was treated ordering a hellcat.
    And I got my cat!
    Still bitter enough about it thou not to buy another product which kinda defeats the purpose of a "halo" vehicle right??

    hope they wake up soon and fill the Canadian orders!!!!!

    Wow... I didn't know it was that bad... I have to agree it would seem FCA would treat Canada like one of the states... now that things are settling down on the supply and demand side of the market here in the states... that our friends to the North would get some relief as well?o_O

    That arguement doesn't fly with me.
    No excuse for treating ANY customers the way Canadians and others have been treated.
    Folks have been waiting for A YEAR AND A HALF NOW WITH NO END IN SIGHT.
    Cancel the orders or fill them but Don't leave people hanging like this.
    Small market or not, we build the dam cars.

    You are 100% correct!
    Does that mean Chrysler Cannot supply,
    As little as 30 customers with valid orders and deposits,
    (And countless others Not on HC.org)
    Some Waiting close to 2 years...
    Complete Nonsense,
    Would an additional even 75 units matter to the USA...
    Or Even Chrysler in the big scope...
    Far

    Haha, I hear you, I waited 11 months for mine and finally walked away from the order and found one on the lot, after numerous calls to dealer and even had people at FCA Corp. trying to help me get one..
    FCA answers to the shareholders, like it or not, the $$ is in the US market, ESPECIALLY with the dollar the way it is.
    Threads like this have been beaten to death on many forums over the last 18 months
    It's economics plain and simple.

    Can Chrysler not realize if our canadian orders not filled,
    They will lose repeat customers.
    If chrysler thinks they can suck in "new to brand" customers and keep them
    Coming back with loyalty purchases by Selling them a "Halo"...
    They Are going to have a rude awakening for their shareholders in a few years!
    Customer loyalty is built on respect,most of the age group purchasing
    Are older,we are of the mindset of company x treats you right,
    You keep purchasing from company x.
    New gen x ers buy " the next cool thing" can chrysler fulfill their need,doubt it!
    Only so many Pigeons for the taking...

    [QUOTE= I have to agree it would seem FCA would treat Canada like one of the states.[/QUOTE]
    But.....last I checked the country of Canada is NOT just another one of the United States - States....so explain why should they be treated as such??? am I missing something?
    This is the problem, truth be told, that many Canadians ( I know this because I live on the boarder of US/Canada) believe they should be treated as though they are Americans with all the rights and privileges implied therein. From a business standpoint, they are a foreign country, no different than any other and besides the population disparity and thus market share and priorities, there are customs/import/export rules, regs, laws and policies, red tape & BS at every angle, etc that causes things to not only slow down, but take a second seat to US dealers, sales and marketing..its no different than when we here in the US choose to deal with a foreign country to us....

    I hate to say it is a lost cause if you think you are getting a 2015 roll over. It is a crap shot for Canadians even if it is built in our back yard. Plain and simple FCA does not give a shit about us unless you are lucky to find a dealer that wont BS you and suck 5000 dollar deposit from you and keep stringing you along for a year. I really hope all of us get what we are waiting for this 2016 and see FCA deliver on the vehicles we all have ordered.... Best of luck to all.
