Hi Chris,

Grand Cherokees are made in America, Europe or Thailand. There’s no Australian made Grand Cherokees. They are all made to the same specifications

Hope this answers to your question. If you have any questions in the meantime send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Have a great holiday

I have to say, I think there is a capability gap here!!
I didn't know GCs were made outside of the U.S.?

Is this true or is the response you received in fact from the one and only Village Idiot himself?

The outcome for me was:
Chrysler Australia didn't at that time offer an extended factory warranty.
All extended warranties on offer were sold via dealers and were provided by 3rd parties (such as Allianz).
Pricing varied between $2500 and $3500 and the fine print was quite different in what was covered, and applicable conditions.
I was very uncomfortable forking out possibly $3k+ for something that wouldn't be accessed for $100,000k or 3 years down the track.
After getting all hot and bothered I was relieved to finally get an email from the dealer sales manager confirming that the extended warranty on offer from them could be purchased at any time during the period the vehicle was covered by the original factory warranty.
Immediately extended warranty went in the too hard basket and I'll address that again when and if it becomes imminent.

I wish I could afford to get a new vehicle every 3 years (probably a Hyundai Getz), but its just not possible on my wage-so I've got to keep it for at least 4 1/2 years. We then usually sell our car when they have about 6 months left on the extended warranty.

I'll try to call castle hill tomorrow and see if I can get some concrete information.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Guys, just for interest. R u willing to fill in this continuing roll call to see what Aussies really want, ie....If you would have purchased a Summit you will have two entries. One for the car you have ordered or will purchase and an entry for the Summit.
I will start it off as an example.

It may be interesting for us all and CJD to see our intentions or actual orders.
In my case I would like to see what the demand for the Summit would have been which unfortunately I will not be getting unless MILOUS CAN STILL SAVE THE DAY....ARE YOU HEARING ME MILOUS?

Laredo.Laradeo CRD. Ltd. Ltd CRD. Overland. Overland CRD. SRT & Summit.
Yes Yes.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Robo_70 OR SOMEONE ELSE OUT THERE.
I tried to put my Yes under Overland CRD and another under Summit....But it did not come out that way. Does anyone else know how to fix this for me to get the ball rolling.

Monday 29th July seems a very specific date given not-a-one CRD has been built yet.. i wonder if he is just saying "late July" as a guesstimate ?

What state are you?
