Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Last week in July... If you are lucky.
More accurately, I am guessing 26th or 29th July.
You then need to install your caravan stuff, so add another week until you can escape.

Sounds very tempting, will have to talk to the wifer about it. Just got a call from the dealer, still no news on the cars getting released from Port Kembla.

So, who will venture a guess on my departure date???
Mine was offloaded on 10th June and have been advised that it will be at dealers on 26th then around a week for detailing etc so should have by end of the month

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Hi

Thanks all for the great info on the GC. I am looking at getting the LTD with luxury option but am trying to justify the 3-4 month wait for it or just go the stock standard LTD, is it worth the wait ?.

Cheers

We are trying to get quotes for insurance on the MY 14 GJC but the insurance companies are saying that they have no notification of this car from Chrysler.

What have those with cars done about this situation?

Looking at the posts, the claim seemed to both come from the same dealer . Ie Leo mueller in brisvegas. That therefore reaks of either a salesperson or sales manager who is ignorant of the law, and is also a liar.

Given its the same dealer, i dont think its true- but fancy telling someone a story that also involves a clear breach of law in this country! Frankly, whoever was told this little story, should get on the phone and ring the dealership, and speak to the CEO or dealer principal and explain to them what they were told and that they really should lift their game for honesty, perhaps even a little training about collusion and price fixing may be in order.

Incidentally, have a little more faith in the ACCC. If you had some evidence on this from 2 separate sources, they'd be all over it. It would be a serious and clear breach that no doubt would get a run on the news, and the ACCC love being in the limelight

I think other buyers got their Insurance company to recognise the car as if it were a MY13, then make any adjustments when information became available.

This ^ ^

We are insured with AAMI. They are fully aware of the MY14 but because it's not on their system yet, they have listed it as an MY13 but made notes in their 'Additional Information' section. It wasn't an issue.

I'll give them a call in a few days to see if it appears on their system and then get them to correct it.
