The production on the 2014 Jeep Cherokee will resume but shipments to dealerships will be delayed, causing the SUV to miss its on-sale date of September 30.

The American automaker is recalling 500 laid off workers from its Toledo plant so that it can resume full production on the 2014 Cherokee. Earlier this week, Chrysler announced that it had temporarily laid off 500 workers in Toledo in order to catch up with recalibrating the Cherokee’s nine-speed automatic transmissions in vehicles already assembled.

Dealerships will now receive the 2014 Jeep Cherokee sometime in October, but the American automaker reiterated that it will not introduce the vehicles until they are “completely satisfied with the quality.”
