Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

What is the point in taking orders if the order details are looked at when building. Surely they would be better off building what jeep want (as they are doing) and then selling them when they arrive in Australia. Sure customers can take a number and get In line- but don't tell us to wait for our specific order if it is not being built as we asked.

Yes, Milous, dealers tell me the same but black is so, well, yucky. I have lots of up market vehicles pulling into my business and the higher class vehicles often have the lighter upholstery which shows off all the refinements that are lost with the dark colours. Textures, stitching etc. I must say though that in the main these higher priced vehicles are normally driven by older codgers like me who are passed pulling kids around in the car so easier to keep clean. As you said though, you have to like what you have, enjoy driving it etc. In my case taking second best would be really annoying for the amount of time you spend sitting in something you did not order or want. Each to their own...and thanks for that tracking info earlier.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hey all,

Any other guesstimates as to when Jeep Australia will provide us with some information on the specification etc? I'm thinking sometime next year maybe?...

Getting really tired of being fed the same old BS from Jeep Australia.

That number again: 1300 133 079

It's a real shame that we have to resort to being a pain in the ass. For those wanting E Numbers, I suggest you call this number and ask for it. It worked for me...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

If you are board waiting for your new jeep, you can at least download the manuals from:
Jeep Owners | Download an Owners Manual 2004 - 2011 | Jeep

Lots of reading here!!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Ha what a joke all this is!

Rang the dealer for the first time in a couple of months and as expected no e numbers showing on his system yet (well 2 larados only he said)

So though I'd ring the above number 1300 133 079.

Completely useless wouldnt tell me a thing!! he said did you get this phone number off Jeep Garage, well no actually I asked my dealer for it!!!

I put deposit down in early December and was told I'd have to wait for the 2014 GC crd, no 2012 or 2013 available!! Didn't try sell me the older model did they??

So get your act into gear Jeep Australia because you are hopeless and all people want to know is when and what car some of the dingtwit dealers have ordered for them (I know you are reading this forum Jeep AU)

I don't like the way it implies that they don't want this number to be readily available to the public.
This is their customer service number, it should be easy to find on any of their websites. It is the number they offer to complaints etc on facebook.

If the above is true then that is laughable considering that two weeks ago, Chrysler Communications - the PR arm of Chrysler US - (I assume, correct me if I am wrong) posted a thank you to the social media sites mentioning Jeep Garage.

A C&P from April 17th:

It's been a few weeks, so we're overdue for a shout-out to some of the community-driven Facebook pages. Thanks to all the admins who help bring people together to show off their rides, and talk about Chrysler Group's heritage, present and future: Fiat Lancia Unlimited, Moparpalooza, JeepGarage.Org....


If Chrysler Aust do indeed read this site, then here's a tip for Veronica Johns from Gail Kelly, a successful CEO of a major Australian organisation (my bold).

"This digital age requires leaders to be visible and authentic and to be able to communicate the decisions they've made and why they've made them, to be able to acknowledge when they've made a mistake and to move forward, to engage in the debate. "There is no place for hiding and pretending and hoping things go away."

Pretty good tip Veronica (if you are indeed reading this site).

If you didnt know any different (Which I didn't) then you would think that phone number is for idiots trying to find out things about 2014 GC, that how i was treated, like shit! I should ring back and file a complaint, but it wont go anywhere because I'm just trying to find out things I'm not allowed to know.
