Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I'm not quite sure what Snuke is talking about with regards to speed 'tracking' but within the Nav screen it displays the speed applicable to that particular road and when exceeded 'Jeep Girl' dampens the music and says ' The Speed Limit is 80kms an hour' for example.

But I'm not sure if that is what he means (?)

Hi all,
I'm eagerly waiting for my MY14 2014 build LTD CRD with Lux II to arrive early April. In the meantime I'm starting to accrue accessories. What's the best place/price anyone has found for the Mopar slush mats for our RHD configuration? Also interested in roof racks/bike carrier and maybe side steps.

For example, if your car value is $60200, stamp duty is $1806, and if your car value is say $60500, the stamp duty is $3030. A massive increase of $1224 for an additional $300 value!!!! It is not calculated like the LCT, whereby it is calculated over the threshold. Here is a link with comparisons of the states. VIC is still current, not sure about the rest - How much stamp duty will you pay? | carsguide.com.au
We were conned by the Howard Govt, they told us back then that if GST was introduced then State stamp duty (and other taxes) would go. Unfortunately it seems that only the 'older' generation now remembers this. Now we have taxes on a tax. However there has been some talk in Govt that they are considering dropping the luxury car tax, but don't hold your breath on this one.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Poor wording from memory. It is in the Trip Computer settings under Information.
As it shows Vehicle Speed as "0km/h" while stationary it makes me think it should show current speed while moving.



Looking at this, the 7km was a trip programmed by me to a local restaurant. So maybe a trip has to be programmed, no idea.
No doubt someone will test it tomorrow.

Roof racks for bikes = Thule or Yakima. Thule being the more common here, depending on your needs, front wheel on or off. Rood or MTB, QR or thru (15mm or 20mm) axle etc...
Personally I have always gone a hitch cradle style so I don't have to worry about overhead clearance or mud from my bike getting on the roof.

Side step, there are the official options that cost over $1000, otherwise check out eBay and the side step thread.
MY14 (MY11 onwards fit) talk starts from here - Chrome Side Steps

The slush mats look nice, BUT, they won't hold much water and when mine arrived the drivers mat only had one central locating hole instead of 2. The rear mat wasn't a very good fit either. I returned them, got my $160 back and bought a more suitable set of 4 from Supercheap, $40.

Just went for a drive and my GPS is 2 km/h behind my speedo at 60 and 65 and 80 and 85. In hind sight I might have been better off not knowing that.

Snuke and co.

In regards to the Sat Nav GPS speed tracking, it will show your current speed according to GPS. I have used it a few times. It was showing around 4km/h slower then what my speedo was reading.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

When I get a chance I will compare it to my GPS units.

As you in Brisbane I will be interested to see how long it takes to clear customs and arrive at your dealer!.
Which Brisbane dealer did you buy through?
I bought from Cricks at Mt Gravatt happy with the dealer not happy with Jeep Aus!!! Due to a cockup with order re colour the Jeep has been re-ordered, now delayed by at least a month probably more.
