Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Re Suttons Waitara Group Buy.

Received email advise that Overland I ordered as part of the Group Buy last June has arrived and will be ready to pick up next week.

Hope for others who participated in the group buy that your cars are now not too far away from delivery also.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Just arriving now?
My order was placed July 7th, docked Sydney Oct 30th, picked up from Waitara Nov 22nd

I can see there was either a delay in Waitara actually placing the order with Jeep Aus, or more likely a delay with Jeep Aus actually placing the order with the US.
Or maybe just a weird hang up with progressing to D1 status.

max2007 (Overland - Deep Cherry - Australia)
Date ordered: July 2013
Current Status: KZ
D1 status date: 10/15/2013
Estimated delivery: 12/22/2013 (to Sydney port)

SNUKE (Limited - Granite - Australia)
Date ordered: 07/07/2013
Current Status: KZ
D1 status date: 08/21/2013
Estimated delivery: 11/03/2013 (to Kembla port)

Hopefully it is not bucketing down with rain the day you pick it up.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I got hung up getting to D1, ordered end of Nov, but it seems nothing happens in Dec. Went D1 Jan 17th, so I guess 2 and a bit months I should get it.....

Didn't think I'd get so impatient waiting for it, but now I've ordered it, I just want it.....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Must question this new offices and warehouse they opened a year ago what was going to fix the piss poor parts supply.

I figure that you buy the part yourself, air freight it over and then send them the bill.

Sure, id do that if I knew the part. All they can tell us is that in the process of fixing the same oil leak for the third time, is that they damaged the crank shaft position sensor. No parts in AU, and that the part was ordered VOR (vehicle off road) which apparently speeds up the whole process and that we should see the part between 2 & 6 weeks. Accord to them its all ok as they gave us a Hyundai Elantra to drive. Buy a $75, 000 car to drive a $18, 000 one.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Just as a side note, I ordered a RHD foot rest for the Jeep (yes Jeep does list this as an obscure part - mainly sold in the UK) through a dealer in early November. It still hasn't arrived and was recently told that they (the dealer) have to wait for 3 months before Jeep will look into any issue of delays.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

How much? I'm slowly getting used to live without a footrest, but if I can buy one through a dealer and have them install it I would jump at the chance I think.

I hear Elantras go from 100kmh to reverse in 3 seconds.
I also hear they are excellent off road vehicles, and don't understand what speed humps are.

Oh

My

God.


That's so funny it just isn't funny any more. They must ship parts by boat in the back of new vehicles or something. What's the wait if your vehicle is on the road but the aircon doesn't work... and it's summer???
