I do like the cameras though, I'd love to have something that gave me forward view and integrated with the uconnect system.

Agree on camera front. Good to have birds eye view in particular off rd.

Yep, looked at a Toerag. Too small, too ugly, too expensive, no good off-road.

It is enough to turn you off buying a Jeep. But I suspect like most things, the majority that are happy with things say nothing, but those that have a bad experience are very vocal.
What is horrendous is Jeep Aus's responses, or lack there of.

I thought I should also look at Mitsubishi's to be fair, as we are on our second Pajero and only had one small issue with the current one, that got fixed relatively quickly.
Similar story, mainly a lot of bitching with a few positive posts.
The big difference, MMA respond to every post that needs a response, and

Nice nasty comment about Jeep Castle Hill from April 6th

"Had a really bad experience buying our first Jeep with Heartland Castle Hill. Did the deal and on the day due for delivery they tell us they dont have the car and deal is off. Happy to hold our deposit and we have to wait for refund. So pleased Five Dock Jeep have been extremely professional about their sales. Very disappointed customer."

Can only agree - it's my local dealer but avoid at all costs. They have completely lost the plot since closing the Holden franchise.

Great first post (not).

Did you speak to the principle? (who is not fat or Indian, if you had a brain you'd know that surname is Italian, but lets not let facts get in the way of your little rant). You seem to have a problem with Asian's and Indian's the way you wrote your comment?

I hear Manny Cirillo is a very traditional Indian name. I was once in Kashmir and I called out to my mate, also called Manny Cirillo, and 39% of the place turned around and looked at me.

Pakistani Kashmir, or Indian Kashmir 😂
If the service is shit, best to just say so, bringing race into it is a bit OTT


Cheers, Simon

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I visited castle hill's in July last year. Looks like sales dept still going through revolving door. We all know that castle hill's has made reputation 4 itself regardless who's who. Don't waste time on them. Let's move on......

It's all to do with something called style - obviously something you know nothing about.

The Touareg is a class above the JGC, plain and simple - *luxury* 4WD class and winner in class three years running....
(JGC came 4th in this years RACV test/poll)

Sure, JGC is far better value...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Geez, I don't often hear someone using Touareg and style in the same sentence. They look boring.....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I've only seen one Touareg towing a van in the past two years. I did hear that they had a problem with the electronics with the van hookups, affected their computers. :-(
