Finally got the towbar installed on the SRT .. Absolute joke .. To install the towbar they need to remove the rear bumper & flare mouldings.. A job requiring care & attention .. I was in shock when I collected it .. They used a small screwdriver to pry off the flares .. Leaving visible marks (paint chipped) .. Missing clips & none of the flares line up! Blasted the service managerr!! They will be collecting it Monday morning for a full rework .. Back to as new (or else!) ... Really disappointing when so called "authorized technicians" dont give f..k about my brand new $80k+ vehicle! 😒

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Ouch! You have me worried about mine when it comes.

Which dealer so the rest of us can avoid them?

@220
That's not acceptable, hope it all get's sorted.
Don't hold back on naming the dealer
Those that deliver should be praised, those that don't should be named

... I'm sure they treat their Ferrari customers better .. I guess they are not use to installing towbars on 'prestige' vehicles..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

My JGC Laredo MY14 with 5,000 k on the clock has performing faultlessly until this evening.
We pulled into a bush camp, switched everything off and made camp.
After dinner I noticed the dash panel flickering. No interior lights, in fact no lights at all. Appears I may have a dead battery. Put a multi over the jump start terminals under the hood and got a reading of 5v.
Does anyone have any suggestions where I go to from here. Rang Jeep Assist, they are closed till Monday apparently.
Seems like the old Jeep bug bear of electrical gremlins is live and well. What a disappointment !

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

What telephone number are you calling NC?

I have pulled out our letter from Chrysler Au re: Roadside Assistance. It states, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

On the card it also states: For Assistance Call 1800 102 277 24 Hours/7 Days a week.

What?

Jeep Assit is closed? Arnt they 24 hr?

Jeep assist is run by Allianz road side assist -they are similar to NRMA.

If you cannot raise jeep assist or Allianz maybe you will need to join NRMA and send jeep the bill if it is a warranty issue.

Whilst a faulty battery is a possibility the low voltage reading is a little strange considering the vehicle had been driven. If you are still stuck, try taking a voltage reading on the battery posts (not the cable lug) and see if it differs greatly from the reading at the jump start. If the battery posts are showing normal voltage it might be worth checking the battery cable connections and and the negative connection to the chassis.

Having a look at the tracking thread, and I see three others apart form myself and Den5516

Denis, surprised you are not on the tracking thread.
Do you plan to get tracking and build sheet?
