Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Okay this officially sucks. Contacted the dealer today, says he has no news or E number yet on the vehicle we ordered in October 2012. WTF should I be worried, seems everyone else here who ordered a vehicle can get a E number and track the build and delivery? Advice please folks.

Get use to it buddy, Jeep AU are now starting to blame Chrysler US, stating "they haven't told us pricing or spec".... thats the phone call we got from our new sales lady today... Jeep, if you are going to lie, then at least do it to someone who you haven't provided an E number to.... for crying out loud, ill send you a copy of my build sheet so you can then call me and tell me what we are getting. Getting very frustrated over here, and am beginning to think we should have bought something else.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

courtesy call from dealer today, advises my vehicle is on track for delivery late July, I asked him for the "E" No but he doesn't have it, I asked how he knows it's on track, he says Jeep AU told him, I asked how do they know if there is no "E" No, quiet, then says he will get back to me, I inform him that MY14's have landed in Aust, he says he is not aware of this. BS

I received the exact same response even to the advice that car will arrive last week in July.

Alan,
I would ask them for a delivery date. If it is in the next 2 months then the car will have been built and they would have allocated the E number to your order.
If they say this is not true, tell them they have 7 days in which to confirm your order with an E number or you will cancel your order and find a dealer who is not suffering with NFI.
Dealers need to understand that we are not all mushrooms and that they had better start to communicate better. If it is Jeep AU that is the problem, the only way to change it is to put pressure on the dealers who will pressure Jeep AU.
I think that they have no ordered your car and that they are hoping for an allocation. It is really poor form from the dealer as your car should be be one of the first delivered next month.

Ive tried both the ipad and android app, and the ipad one does have less glitches. The android one doesn't display pictures very well, and only allows you to flick thru pages one at a time....

The problem is ENFORCER....When Alan threatens to cancel the order they will just say OK. Where does that then place Alan. I think the real reason for locking up on E numbers is to undermine the position of MILOUS and to try and nullafy (that word does not look right) the authority/power of this forum. Normally dealers when selling a car offer as a service the fact that they can track the car for the client and they offer that they will keep you informed.....but, once the contract is signed the reality is complete silence.

Can anyone recommend a good place to get new trim pieces for the MY14? I really cant stand tge wood trim, would much prefer carbon fibre or just plain black for my Overland.... like the ones the SRT has.

Now when you calculate the length (232m) x breadth (32m) of the Oberon x the displacement (0.2m), it roughly calculates to be about 1,484.8 tonnes lighter. Now divide this by say 2.2 tonnes per JGC, then it means that about 675 JGC were delivered to Newcastle. Is that consistent with our current intelligence reports?
Assuming no other jeep variants or other models are on board??
