As we are towing a van, we are considering getting the service done in Melbourne so would appreciate any comments on service centres there. The two most convenient seem to be Essendon and Bundoora.

We could also consider Bendigo or Shepparton if they rated highly.

The Jeep has been performing flawlessly easily handling the towing over some very steep hills and a few pretty rough roads. No recurrence of the DPF issue.
Graham,
That is excellent news and I have the same package vehicle. Glad you're enjoying tassie and vehicle.

Then you need to forget the leather and sunroof.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

They are, but sunroof will be about $3k, leather will be about $5k. (not sure if you can option leather though to be honest).

Leather isn't an official option but dealers will arrange for it to be fitted aftermarket.

Thanks guys

I seen in earlier posts the single plane sunroof was around 2k and the dual was around the 3.5k mark?

I'm just curious what people have paid

Great to see you joining. There are lots of lookers/viewers that I have, in the past, tried to encourage signing up. I do not think they realise there are added benefits which they are not seeing. ....and then for a small fee you access further information.

Now it's easy for me to talk because I am in a postion to afford an Overland. I do encourage you to do your homework carefully though because adding extra's is a disproportionate added cost and they will carry a lesser resale value than moving to the next model be it a Limited or an Overland. The easiest example are Laredo owners who have been mislead over the reversing camera. They have purchased it as an optional extra and they have been real shockers as you have no doubt read....a total waste of money virtually not working like they should.

The base model, ie Laredo is an excellent buy because unless you are a Jeep enthusiast most motorists would not know whether you are driving a Laredo, Limited or Overland so you get all the prestige without the cost.

Now having said that, the best thing I have ever done with buying cars was moving to the Overland. I will never buy a vehicle with a lesser standard than this car again, whether it be an MY17 Overland or a Benz or Beamer in a few years. Once experiencing luxury, air suspension, AUTO headlights, Active Cruise Control, the Uconnect system and the list goes on with the Overland...there is no going back.

However, if you are younger still setting out in life there are greater priorities than a car. A well known financial adviser recently stated in the Herald Sun that you should never pay above half your age (in dollars) for a car. I would probably have fitted into that scenario for the first 4 decades of driving but now I think....STUFF THAT, it's time to be impractical and enjoy this wonderful engineering.
