Nope, nth side and my dealership manager has been great, but the salesman that sold us the car was useless!

I got exactly the same quote related to an Overland CRD. However I have no brochure or document that defines the inclusions or exclusion and I am chasing that document.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

That document should be available from Dealerships.
Also worth noting, that according to Chrysler etc. Aust., the warranty is only available at the time of purchase, and cannot be bought at a later date.

Are you sure it is Chrysler backed and not just a dealership warranty? I'm sure that whoever offered you the warranty can point you in the direction of the PDS.

On a different note, which of our Newcastle members is going down for the photos of the GC's being offloaded from the Oberon? Maybe we need security footage again

allypally, what is your knowledge re the value of this Chrysler warranty?
Whilst it appears to be a warranty supported by Chrysler Australia it does appear to be underwritten by an Insurance company....IAG (Insurance Australia Group).
With all the bells and whistles on this vehicle including electronics it may well be worth the coverage if it genuinely covers all these. That is going to be the 64K dollar question to clarify.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Can Jeep Aus. please ring Orange jeep , and let the dealer know that the 8 speed is coming in the diesel (not just the petrol) as he is telling me. He said cant pre order MY14 model or give price, until official release date. What sort of price should i be quoted for MY14 crd limited - drive away. Which tow bar should be fitted - jeep or hayman reese . any information would be great, as i would like to order one. This thread has been outstanding in the wealth of knowledge out there, very helpful. thanks Burger.

Burgerman,

And when (if) you get this very useful information can you share it with the rest of Australia and its long suffering existing and potential customers??

Good luck with your projects though!

Bluey

PS Cant remember seeing an Orange Jeep in the colour Scheme though.
Toyota has that orrible little FJ Cruiser orangey colour

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Burger, I strongly recommend you find another dealer to purchase from. If that dealer is so out of touch with the product he is selling, he will probably order you a Lada, and expect you to be happy with it.

I think Insurance, and that is what I would class extended warranty as, needs to be entered into carefully, and the purchaser needs to read the fine print. However, I think the Chrysler Warranty is better than those offered by dealerships and is underwritten by insurance companies.
I guess one of the criteria a purchaser would need to consider is the length of time they intend to keep the car, and the amount of Klms they believe they will travel. When you consider the cost of a headlight assembly ( >$2,000) and the cost of a transmission (>$8,000) is may be worth consideration.
One of the problems with the insurance underwritten warranties is that they are good only if you continually go to that issueing dealership, and have so many exclusions, you end up wondering what they actually do cover.
Finally, you will find that many dealerships automatically give a "free extended warranty" providing you service only with them.
