We do know that they are supplying a new camera applique and wiring/camera kit for all new MY14 Laredo deliveries. I wouldnt think that they would automatically retrofit already delivered unit with the new ones.

As they say its a squeaky wheel that gets the oil and boy, am I squeaking!!

I have my Petition and Vic Consumer Affairs submission held in reserve.

Bluesy, read this article which will help your case. I started to like this guy and his articles.

And he is WRONG!

While not a bad review, he didn't really show the cars abilities. His comparisons to the Germans whilst important to some didn't really hammer home the point of difference, that the SRT beats all of them except the Porsche Cayanne Turbo. He made the point of it being an "off roader" but didn't show it off road (don't worry i'll do that for you all in Sept ).

I know im biased, but this car is far better than ANY review I have seen/read by any "journo" (lets face it, this is the same guy that does ACA etc so he wont risk his paycheck having fun in a car).

And one final point if I may, that is the same press car that has been around for over a year now which has had the proverbial flogged out of it by every hack that JeepAU can get it to. Bout time a fresh car was released to the press for a "one year on" type of story.

Ok, wheres my happy pills

Grab them happy pills.

He was taking the piss (from all sides both for and against). It wasn't supposed to be about figures and capabilities etc. He was enjoying the ride (as you would if you were handed the fob of an SRT).

Wish someone would hand me their SRT fob. I've only sat in one.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

All good, i'm calm again lol.

If ever the opportunity arises for us to catch up i'm happy for you to try the SRT. I wonder if it should wait till you get the Cherokee though as you may want to buy one

I would love an SRT Rob but the Overland with ORAII was the overall better choice for us given where we are.

But, when we do take delivery of the CRD Cherokee Limited (see, that's the best choice also given that it's the 'second' vehicle so can't justify the extra 25k for an SRT), then I'll trade you a drive in the CRD KL for a drive in the SRT.

Clearly you are the loser in this swap however. Alternatively, I can offer up a drive in an '07 GC 5.7 Hemi. That might be interesting and that particular vehicle was built in Austria (for whatever that is worth )

Ok ok ... I see you are hedging. What about I throw in a drive in a Ferrari 360 as well.

I get to drive the SRT.

You get to drive the KL and the devil spawn of the unholy alliance between Daimler/Benz and Chrylser ('07 GC) and the Ferrari.

Deal?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Good. I'll let you know when KL arrives. A couple of months away. I'm being optimistic - reality says perhaps later. (Toledo seems hell bent on knocking out petrol versions at the moment so at some stage they may switch their attention to CRDs and the export market, but who knows when that will happen )

Milous has my e-number but nothing showing on his side yet. No VIN showing as yet either so it's a while away but I'll let you know.
