Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Dutch,
Therein lies another complication. I traded my vehicle in (leaving me with out a tug) but that was my decision and no probs with that. That was mid November.
When I completed the deal, the invoice stated the price along with all the known options at that time eg. crd, Quadralift,Leather,sunroof,towbar etc.
That left a balance owing after the trade in price was subtracted from it, payable upon delivery.
Now they have a substantial deposit in the trade in, approx 40%.
Question is, (and I may get legal advice on this) can I legally stick to the invoice price ie(balance remaining) or would I be subject to price increases (which was not mentioned at the time of signing the contract).
Probably not a question for this forum, Will work it out myself buat an interesting one.

All I want is some info from those that matter!! JEEP AUSTRALIA or is it
Fiat Chrysler Australia ???

Buggered if I know who I'm dealing with!!

Bluey

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Local dealer here still has basically no info on the '14. He isnt trying to hide anything either, as he has us down for a '14 order as we had ordered a '13 but it had to be changed to the new model.

Apparently he got told by powers higher up that jeep australia wont release the '14s to the dealers until basically all stock of the my13's had been sold. Not sure how true this is, but hopefully its not quite the case!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Can someone explain to me how this will unfold. There are obviously many Aussies out there that have purchased MY14 Overlands, signed contracts and left deposits. In the case of Hymer a substantial amount via a trade in. If we do in fact get both an Overland and a Summit can someone explain to me what will happen with all those orders/contracts. Some purchasers are believing they will get a Summits (even if it is badge "Overland", others are believing they will be getting Overlands (as in the US lower spec Overland). Can someone explain to me how this will pan out. Will those orders all go in as Overlands?.....how does that resolve orders where some purchasers believe they are getting lower spec Overlands and others higher spec Summits?

i am guessing that dealers that over stocked on MY13 "want" Jeep to block the MY14 until they sell out but I know there are dealers with very little stock and some with lots, so you cant penalise the dealers with no stock to sell while the others try to off load.. the show must go on !!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Yep totally agree rob.

Webber - im going to 'assume' that when the order banks open for us here, the dealer should really be contacting the person with the order confirming they want an overland or a summit - otherwise if they leave the order as is id say there will be alot of overlands coming.

I actually want the overland version, not the summit, and so as long as he doesnt order me the wrong one, ill be happy.

But it's not. It's Brilliant Black with brown interior, Summit badge, and the paperwork with it clearly states "Australia" (with a shipping destination of Melbourne). Currently in QC, it has the 5.7L, RJ4 nav radio (export version of RA4) as well as the Harman Audio system.

Kayezy - further to your assumption, I'm also assuming once they confirm the model with us, a new order/contract will need to be signed with the actual model, specs, options and final pricing. The contract as it stands is decidedly fluffy - ummm, one might even say "Dodgey"

Milous,

I don't know who the new member is with 2 posts, but as I have been discussing with some of the guys via PM, no one over here knows what's going on, I actually doubt jeep au know, they are a franchise not part of corp. I know dealer don't know, so this to me is just someone stiring the pot. As I have said many time in PM mainly with Webber and Robo, the only person I beleive right now is you. I like to use the example that you said back in June last year we will get an 8 speed diesel, but the dealers were trying to say that will not happen. They said it will be only on the V6.

Bottom line is, I have read every post on the main page, followed it from the first month and you have always been spot on, they still don't know much.

Maybe someone at Jeep Australia has a special order for one for himself! Just to be different than all of us.....

Aussies PLUS Milous.
I am not suggesting for one moment that Milous is misleading us. Milous is a Saint as far as I am concerned. It is hard to believe that Fiat-Chryler is nothing more than a "franchise". The fact is Milous could well be giving us correct info on what is available to him and I have been hanging on every word and again thank you Milous. BUT, I have been fearful that Chrysler Australia may not have "locked it in" and with all the "Overlands" being sold as MY12's and MY13's and contracts sold for MY14's Overlands they may have "boxed" themselves into a corner. It could be a bad PR exercise to have a car called a Summit in view of all the recent Overlands sold and ordered. The big Australian chiefs may have made last minute compromised decision to sell the Summit as a badged Overland in Australia. That would partly explain why some dealers are stating we will not be getting a Summit. As explained recently I have an email committed to writing stating that he (the dealer) was informed by his state manager from Head Office only this week that we are not getting a Summit. It will be an Overland with all the Summit specs. I am thrilled to read Milous' latest observations that he has now actually seen a Summit with a Melbourne address on it. This is real progress in this very poorly Public Relations exercise by Fiat-Chrysler Australia. How Head Office can consider this good PR I will never understand. How all those dealers are going to deal with their clients I have no idea because many want Overland specs and many want Summit specs. You can see why new/Used car salesman are at the bottom of the pile when it comes to "ethics". I think this blame should more likely rest with Fiat-Chrylser Australia and not the Salesmen who are going to have to deal with a lot of either happy or very mad clients. They are going to have to go through the embarrassment of contacting everyone to clarify this mess. Those of us still on this site are now or still rusted on Jeep buyers but how many potential clients have switched off and purchased another make of vehicle. Obviously I operate on a different set of "ethics" to Chrysler Australia. This practice cannot be helpful to a companies reputation and standing in the community.
I repeat again Milous.....your recent observations would have to be the best news in months because it is (only the first I hope) the first hard evidence supporting everything you have been informing us......AND I WANT YOU TO BE RIGHT. Lets keep this site going for another 10,000 posts and all come back with stories on just how our salesmen came back to us all with their "excuses" and "stories". It could be interesting.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Haha, webber in regards to the summit story from my dealer, when I mentioned it to him a couple of weeks ago, he had a very baffled look on his face. He never tried to deny it was coming, he just knew nothing of it!

He didnt even realise they sold a overland summit in America for the '13s.
