Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Yes, there was something about bugs in the newspaper - think it is effecting BMW as well.

Having lived on the land, I now have no tolerance for chemicals /pesticides and the fumigation process could very well make my car too toxic for me to own.

Damn! What do I do now?

Don't think about it, fumigation happens on a tonne of stuff you don't even think about.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hey,

I posted about this in another thread. I was told that my vehicle may also be affected by these bloody stink bugs. I have been in touch with the dealership and FCA and have not had a detailed discussion over the phone about whether I was affected or not. They kinda avoided the topic.

My car landed in Port Kembla on the 12th April and I am going to finally pick it up on Friday. I will talk with them face to face then. If my car was indeed fumigated I will let you know whether the new car smell was affected. I was really looking forward to enjoying the smell. Fingers crossed I am in the clear.

Below is the article on the subject.

Luke snuke said you wouldnt even know what gets fumigated, i import skis from la and everyone is fumigated because of the timber crate. There is no trace other than an opened crate.

Womsirom, I hope you're in the clear. I just can't believe that after spending 70-80K on a car that it gets sheep drenched before you pick it up. I certainly hope that there'll be no residue on the seats, steering wheel and other parts.

There's a pretty nasty youtube video showing an infested car with the stink bugs. Nasty stuff as they burrow into the carpet's under-felt and in other tight spaces. That's why cars have to be fumigated for up to 90 hours. I know if I walk past an outdoor smoking area my clothes stink. Imagine a car smoked for 90 hours non-stop. They're using chemicals like methyl bromide as the fumigant. Research states that it is an odorless and colourless gas - but is poisonous to humans. Sad thing is that the effects of Methyl bromide poisoning has a delayed reaction.

That's all I need. There goes the last few hairs on my head......

Is that water skis or snow skis?
