Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

That is the second sale lost to a Q7 - one of the guys at work has just traded his Subaru Tribecca on one. He was impressed with my GC, especially the fuel economy and the look, but decided to go with the Q7 after all the dramas I have had. He was more confident that Audi would have better after sales service.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

all cars have issues as we know.. its how the company deals with the experience that makes the difference - I can say first hand that Audi treated me very well, provided a loan car and also gave me a free 2yr extended warranty when I has issues with my Q7.
From reading on Jeeps facebook site and other places it would seem once you buy a Jeep, your on your own.. I am hoping this wont be my experience with the '14 ( if I ever get it ! )
What issues did you have GMWK2 ?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Jeep do not consider the Q7 as competition, instead they look at the Q5 as a direct competitor. The Q7 is significantly more expensive and to get a car that matches the kit on an overland, there would be little change out of $110k.
Audi servicing costs are also a hell of a lot more than Jeep. While it is sad to lose sales to Audi, they are in a different league. You will also suffer the same type of problems, but would expect better service.
The biggest let down is still JeepAU and their attitude to before, during and after sales service.
Personally I did not like the Q7 as it was a massive car with too many huge cost options.

Well documented elsewhere over the last year, but in a nutshell I got caught out in the change from the MY11 to the MY12 model.

My GC was delivered with the wrong tyres, no owners manual and no recovery hooks. I had to go through DFT to get these matters resolved. I then had an idler pully fail at 3 months old and had the delay in parts supply to contend with. All along the dealers have been on a steep learning curve, most of them being new to Jeep.

And we are still trying to get the sand mode failure issues resolved.

I love my Jeep, hate Chrysler AU.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Australia will not host a motor show in 2013 with the Melbourne show now cancelled. Jeep will need to make a splash about the 2014 models via a different forum.

The service guys where I go are OK - they are the same guys who have looked after my work Commodore(s) for many years. They just are not given any information or parts backup from Chrysler. Not a whole lot they can do if there is no head office support.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia



You guys have probably seen this clip of a JGC working the rocks but thought would post it anyway. Certainly versatile but I suppose those Q7's and Q5's can do this also.

Boy it's quiet. Difficult to pass the time waiting for our Jeeps.
