On the other hand, all the dealer could get from Jeep Aust was that the car was "On Schedule".
I will be very shortly ordering an Overland CRD through my leasing company. To be nice I thought I should give my local dealer a chance at a bid. So yesterday I went I and said I would like to get a quote for a 2014 Overland... .. .. A few seconds silence... "Humm That's a Jeep isn't it?" LOL.. Ok it turns out their Jeep rep quit two weeks ago so I was stuck with a Ford rep but I thought it was pretty funny.

Funny you say that. My wife fielded a call from our "new" dealer on Monday, who will be "taking over, and keeping us updated weekly" from here on in. Maybe someone is finally getting rid of some of the dead wood that's been floating down the river.......

Me Thinks you should try a Sydney dealer, for perhaps someone who has the tiniest bit of knowledge about the Jeep product, and try not to use big words.

Allypally, Chances are I will. However I live in Alice Springs which means if I buy brand new Overland I would have to drive this said brand new wonderful car the whole 3000kms home. Not sure I could handle that. LOL. Deep down I am hoping an interstate bid comes in lower. . Oh and yes I will use small words.

I'll fly to where ever has a True Blue Overland CRD with the interior colour that starts with V that no one can pronounce. . Chances are though I will wait in line like everyone else... As long as it isn't WHITE when it gets here.

I have an Overland CRD ordered mid March in Brisbane and my dealer said he would call me weekly to the point of being annoying. I wonder if we have the same dealership south side of Brisbane

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

With regards to extended warranties, does anyone have any knowledge of the options and rough prices for an SRT warranty in Australia? I hope I will be keeping the car for around 5+ years so I would ideally like a 5 or 6 year warranty in total.

Cheers guys!

Chrysler dealership offerred me the "Maximum Care Plus Extended Warranty Package" 100% supported and certified by the manufacturer-Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge Australia. 24months/175,000km extension. Cost offerred was $2565.00. Brochure lists what it covers but would want to check that out further.

I have purchased an Overland CRD. Don't know if warranty extension is same cost for all models or not.

Mate, Brisbane to Alice Springs via Birdsville and the Simpson Desert. You'll be the first to do the crossing in a MY14 - Legend.
