I hear you Pharmaboy! My beef with Jeep Aust. is not with the release of the MY14, after all I was told last November by guru Milous to expect delivery to Aust around July and if it arrives problem free then that's OK by me

My concern with Jeep Aust relates to the reports by owners of disinterest by management when problems do arise.

I hear ipad 7 comes out soon with a working USB port, so don't buy a 6 it's old hat, put your order in for a 7, it'll be out sometime soon......, can't say when exactly, put sign here and I'll make sure your amongst the first.....

Mind you, I wouldn't have a bar of a BMW either for all the bullshit of getting given whatever comes within the stupidly long and stupidly expensive option list. Tell me what's in stock, howmuchisit, and here's the money, I'll be back on Tuesday for delivery.
Well I ordered a 2012 Jeep. For reasons that no one can explain to me, they could not provide it and it has to be a 2013 plate, ie a 2014. That was the FIRST like it or lump it from Jeep. No specs no colours noting confirmed and even now if it were not for this forum I still would have no idea what I am getting or when I was getting it. So yes bloody Jeeps fault. Have done nothing but *#$^ me and the dealer about with delay after delay and not kept us informed.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

It's official. Cars can be viewed at Werribee jeep from tomorrow. The Granite Overlamnd will be on the floor from 8am and a Limited and a Laredo will be on the floor later in the day. Ask for Shannon for a hot deal. I think he is great if u want to be looked after.
Very, very helpful. Praise where praise is due I say.

Have owned/driven 5 different Grand Cherokees over the past dozen or so years... no idea what the name is of the service manager at the Jeep dealership. I couldn't even tell you what he looks like! I could count on 1 hand the number of times I've had those 5 Jeeps in the service department.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Milous,
Sorry to ask again a question you have already answered but I can not find the post.
What is the tow limit of the 2014's CRD Overlands comming to Australia please.
I thought you posted before something like 3300kg which would be down on the 2013's 3500kg.
Thanks for your help
Regards

^^^

U.S. CRD spec is:

2WD 7400 LB (3400kg)
4WD 7200 LB (3300kg)

AU spec states "up to 3350kg".

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Webber is June 14th a definite date for you taking delivery of your vehicle? If that's the case, maybe we can get ours in a similar timeframe.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Well, some news is coming along ..... June 14 has definitely firmed with the big punters lol

Alan you must sure love the GC, coz not many would put up with that time period nor stuffing around. I'd be down to the vw dealer in a nanosecond.

I don't think I've ever dealt with a car HQ before, even when I totalled a camry engine in 10,000kms. But I do have simple base model needs...


Erina - rule no 1 corporate - under promise, over deliver
Rule no 1 for salesman- promise what you need to get the business , blame corporate if your wrong..
