Need to work the numbers a bit more I think and also of course, speak to the dealership.
If you are thinking about using the points with Qantas, you better look into the actually fee you need to pay. Because of the high fuel surcharge Qantas is charging it makes using points for flights not so economical.

Getting off topic but... Also keep in mind the two different way of using points, the classic/award type and the any-seat. It used to be that the classic was vastly better value but because the any-seat type includes all fees, the difference appears(at least to me) to be much less. Also with the any-seat style, you have full flexibility.

That is why you often see a little trickle of water coming from the exhaust of modern diesel vehicles. It is added whenever the system lets you know the level is low, and lasts for several tank fulls of fuel.

There is a good and accurate article on Wikipedia that explains the actual chemistry in easy to understand language if you would like to know more.
Hope that helps.

Oh and if you are actually a spy from Jeep trying to test the intelligence of forum members and the quality of information on here better luck next time.

If their are no last minute hiccups you will be able to call in to your dealer, with a little bit of luck on Saturday the 15th and view an MY14. He has assured me that Chrysler are working flat out behind the scenes to release this car. Your dealer may even allow you a "sneak" preview around Saturday 8th June. I hope this posting does not upset Chrysler Australia. I am trying to be careful here BUT they are going flat out and IT'S ALL ABOUT TO HAPPEN. Pricing released around 14th June. Owners start taking possession after that. Congratulations Chrysler Australia, you have a car that will rock the industry.
It seems the launch is still a while away, as mentioned by Director of corp affairs, Chrysler Fiat Aus, Karla Leach in drive.com.au story, she quotes early July. They must really be working flat out.......NOT, seriously, how hard is it to launch an existing product.

You give them too much credit. Do you really think they could manage a USER ID & PASSWORD, as well as locate a thread? Even if they stumbled upon the thread, it would take two of them together to read the text aloud and understand it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I did not think we were getting the DEF system here on our CRD's, only in the USA. I could be wrong, but I cannot remember seeing it mentioned anywhere.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Does anyone know what the usual wait time in "ramp compare" is at Curtis Bay? Our car has been at this stage since the 27/5. Was hoping it would be on the ship by now.
Cheers

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Off to the USA for work. I ordered some tow hooks and door sill guards a week ago and just checked my order tracking, they are ready to be picked up from the hotel

Now all I need is a '14 GC

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Does anyone know if the MY14 Limited can be ordered with Quadra-Drive without the Quadra-Lift?
