What spec is your ride?
I would love to tell him where to go but he knows as well as I do that if I go elsewhere it's to the back of the queue on order and probably November delivery. At this stage it looks like end July delivery but his attitude, this is his email reply when I asked how he calculated the increase

The price I have quoted you is the new rrp that is what im selling the car for so if you don’t want it im happy to refund your deposit

How do you negotiate with that ?

Wouldnt they need an E number to obtain that information?
A car wont be built without an Order. And a car that has been built will have a VIN.
Having said that, it is possible the dealer does not have the information, but Jeep Aust will.
Either the dealer does not know how to ask Jeep Aust for the info, or Jeep Aust are not giving out the info. Take your pick.
Judging on past performances by Jeep Aust, you car could be not yet built, on a ship, or even landed onshore. Jeep Aust have a pitiful record of both stuffing up records, and playing hardball with dealers.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hey Everyone.
New here but Just bought a My14 Laredo CRD. This morning the dealers were emailed the catalogue for the my14 that shows the range and specs.....My dealer emailed it to me. Anyone want me to put it up on here? or is that a silly question?

Hey mate, I believe its the same motor, just a tweaked up version. The USA haven't had diesel for god knows how long, and the 'eco' diesel could be used as a selling point. You will be amazed at how good they go and how quiet they are

I had one unsrupulous dealer in Melbourne (Mentone Jeep) who had previosly promised me to charge only the invoiced price increase but then wanted to charge me an additional $4400.00 with a take it or leave it as I can easily sell it to someone else attitude. He was promptly told where he could put his sale.

What a good idea. The guys would love to see that info.

I think when you strike that situation, you should talk to the dealer principal. Worth a try.

Nothing like a little blackmail and playing the "supply and demand" card.

If your brave you can call his bluff and say your onto another dealer who has a cancelled order he will sell you. But I suspect he wont care as now the news is out another 10,000 will be placing orders over the comming months. They were selling 900 a month of the old model and the 14 is even better value.
Not a bad job really just sit back and take deposits for full RRP . Like shooting fish in a barrel. .

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

IT'S TRUE...IT DOES EXIST!!

Went over to the nursery yesterday, and there it was....Webber's pride and joy! You've all heard the saying 'as happy as a dog with 2 d..ks', well that is Webber at the moment!! The car is fantastic, and anyone who buys one, will not be disappointed.
Also bought some trees whilst I was there to help pay for the 3M protection.
Well done mate, and glad that you're happy with your new Jeep. Also good to put a face to a name on this forum

Who is this terrible dealer. We should make sure others don't go to him.
Just as there are fair and honest dealers there others to be avoided.

What state are you in?

I'd be going over the contract fine print with a fine tooth comb. I think it's pretty fair to say that they didn't hold up their end of the bargain as they weren't able to supply you with the MY13. Usually the dept. of fair trading will view it in your favour and the contact will stand on the newer model, that said, unless the contract says otherwise.
