Seaweed,

You need to PM Milous and request formal tracking.
Supply him with the
E Number, (E nnnnnn)
Model, (Laredo/Limited/Overland,SRT)
Colours. (Exterior/Interior)
Export destination. (Australia)

As it is now late at night for him, you should see the car in tomorrow's tracking listing.

It would appear that either your dealer ordered "standard" upholstery colour which is *black*, or when they placed the order, there was a car unallocated in Jeep Aust quota, and someone forgot to request a colour change prior to D1 status. It is not uncommon for Jeep Aust to screw orders up. Believe it or not, it happened twice on my orders.

Seaweed, did the provision of an E number come voluntarily from the dealer or did you have to pursue and harrass him/her for it??
Ive had no luck from the Frankston dealer yet.

hymer,
Lots of hassling was required. Lots of BS sent my way, still telling me delivery is months away, so hoping I get good news from Milous.

Tracing the E# that you provided (E5726326), the vehicle is a CRD Overland, BUT the exterior colour is Silver and the interior color is Black. It was built a week ago and is currently at Curtis Bay, MD awaiting loading onto vessel.

Milous,
Thanks for the update - hopefully I can get this resolved by my dealer.

Your dealer will have to re-order/find another vehicle to get the colours correct. Let me know if/when you get a new E number and I will add you to the tracking page.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hi all

I ordered my MY14 JGC Overland CRD in Dec 2012 and like many others have been anxiously monitoring this site for months. My first post has come about due to an email received from my dealer today:

Good news Jeep officially are completely out of WK stock. There are 156 total Grand Cherokees in NSW left at dealer level with an average of 250 sold per month.

If my math is correct put simply from 3rd week May to end of June there will be NO Grand Cherokees available to actually sell yet there is an expectation that we still reach our targets.

My sales rep is trying to obtain my elusive E number. It would appear from recent posts that we are finally on the move. Keep up the good work Milous.

My car a year ago was meant to be bright silver with light frost interior and a Black interior turned up. You pay a lot of money and you have to sit in a car that you did not want everyday. That is just not good enough so I resisted the temptation to modify my wants and rejected the car. I say again. This is nothing less than incompetence.
