I wonder what we are paying for pre deliver costs
From what i have seen this is a huge profit area for them and the most expensive car wash in history

Oh, they do check the battery voltage too. Some might even record the voltage on a piece of paper that they can loose later.

CONFIRMED fwdjeep

Just a quick JEEP AUS online calculation without any negotiation:
Overland CRD: $71,000 RRP
Overland CRD: $77,508 Drive Away

That's $6,508 Pre-Delivery costs for a Jeep (Overland) In comparison the Pre-delivery cost of my wife's BMW was $3,500.

Surely no one would put up with a $6K+ pre-delivery cost.

$1800 of that will be stamp duty, and it also includes rego and CTP. So the pre-delivery might be about $3k....

Okay, yes, great point

So not too bad afterall. I'd like to know the breakdown of those pre-delivery charges though. I guess i'll find out in a few months or so.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Yes SNUKE, concur.

Dealer delivery (ex-Govt charges) from $1,500 - $2,000 is reasonable. Anything under $1,500 is very good.

FYI - $77,508 drive away from Nunawading

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

For ours:

Vehicle: $62,404

ORAII - $455
Towbar - Included (but that was $900)
Rego: $700 (includes MVT of $641)
CTP: $571
Plate Slimline White: $99
GST: 6437.06
LCT: $3502.39
SD: $2820

Dealer Charges: $1722.73

Full tank of fuel
Discount $209 (just to make it fit)

Total dosh handed over - $78,500.

That was 9 months ago and one of the first off the lot so you must be able to get a better deal now. We didn't care, infact expected it being one of the first.

Best spent dosh leaving the account ever though.

Ok found m contract of sale

I would say that car dealers and sales people are very skilled at hiding the real costs and moving the real costs around to give the impression of discount deals


2012 for a MY13 grand Cherokee Limited
Vehicle retail price $60,000.00
Paint $490.00
Off road adventure pack $1950.00
Quadra lift air suspension $3250.00
Tow bar &electric brake controller $1595.00

Sub total $67,285.00

Less other discount $3417.00

Plus dealer delivery fees $2,950.00
Plus Stamp duty $2,356.00
Plus Registration Qld $516.00
CTP insurance $310.00
Grand total $70,000.00

They way they cried all time one would have though they were giving it away

If the retail price was $60,000.00 that should have included the stamp duty an other cost including pre delivery

So my dealer delivery fee was almost $3,000.00 dearest car wash ever
