What I would do is basically get the dealers to tender for my business. It's what I do in my job every day of the week.

Put together a letter of exactly what you want, email it to say 6 dealers, give it a closing date for written quotes. This is what a broker does.

Turn the tables on them.

I think this is exactly what Snuke and allypaly are doing with the bulk buy thread. One dealer has already given indicative pricing ( 2013 basically ) thy seems sharp to me. I expect Snuke will get replies from others after next Friday.

The concern to me is the extra time that will be required if I cancel an existing order and go to the bulk deal winner. Guess its a trade off. Save $5k ( just a guess ) but take 3months.

Been thinking thou a delay might not be bad in case there are teething problems with early delivered cars

Milous, a question please.

How many SRTs have been delivered /on the water and is there a limit to how many will come our way this year? I seem To recall reading somewhere we might only get 300 or 500 SRT in total this year and I am wondering if the order book for 2013 cal year might be getting full.

Many thanks for your help in advance.

Well I have JGC 14 Queensland plates ordered in excitement at getting my new 14 Limited, but now put onto my new 13 Limited I bought off the floor when I gave up my 14 order in disgust at the delivery blowouts, dodgy stories, lack of back flapper and side door protective chrome AND stuck in Inspection for 6 weeks at that point. Unfortunately I also had to give up Deep Cherry Red for silver, and the off road and luxury packs I had ordered. However the car is GREAT for what I needed it for - towing big boats. Can't have everything - and expecting maybe October delivery for a December 1 previous year deposit was beyond my ability to bear.

Have you seen the prices submitted by Alex at Waitara? Compared to what Nepean quoted I could afford to buy a small hatch with the difference!!

Hi Everyone, I have just about done a deal on Grand Limited, they have been good deal with and are telling I'm getting an excellent price at $61500 with a two bar including on roads, can anyone tell me if this is a fair price?

Thanks

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Well wonders will never cease. Got a call today from the MD of our local dealership. Big outfit that do Holden/HSV, Mitsubishi/Ralliart, Jeep/Chrysler/Fiat/Alfa and Isuzu. He was not a happy camper that we had cancelled our order and the effect it could have on the companies rep.
Told him.
A. Signed agreement from them that should the vehicle be un-roadworthy/un-driveable/unusable due to fault or warranty issue and parts cannot be obtained and repairs completed within 14 days, a loan car will be made available to us until the issue with our vehicle is corrected. My big concern.
B. Wife is not happy with customer service, lack of contact ect. Full apology then, put money where mouth is. Their stuff up with our 2012 order caused us to have to have a 2013 build and hence all the delays with the new 14. We are out about 3k so either knock that off the price, or provide accessories and extras like paint and rust protection
to that value or higher.

Lets see what he comes up with.... He has until Tuesday 4p.m. to win the wife over, then we are heading into see the nice helpful man at Nissan.

Ph I also knocked him and the Sales Manager right on their ass when they told me it was impossible to obtained detailed info on builds ect. They have some info and everything they have matches EXACTLY with what Milos has provided me. They were not happy to find out Jeep lied to them about what can be obtained through this forum. Ms Tanner has been exposed to the biggest Jeep dealer in the Far North for the liar she is.

Stay tuned for more Tuesday night.

If that is for a 2014 model that is a steal!!!! even 2012 models are still advertised for well over that!! Just make sure of what model you are getting and the specifications.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Further to my previous post, what is the best price anyone has heard on a 2014 Laredo? Just for bargaining chips.
