Mate have you zoomed in on her face? I was thinking "tranny"... and not the type with gears in it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

You lot are incorrigible.

Bluey - wrong colour.

For the record, it's not mine but we're allowed to drive it. He's not that precious about it in other words. I refer to it as 'toy car'.

And what is funny, is he moans and groans about the 'that big SRT' that is parked next to him each night. But what that really means is 'I wouldn't mind one of them'.

Perfect I thought.

Absolutely GMWK2. I didn't ask for it - I actually rang on another matter and whilst on the phone they said 'Oh look we have the E#. Do you want it?'

Another gold star for Narellan - they really do leave other dealers for dead don't they.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Can someone tell me what RHP Navigation radio is? As Jeep has offered me free upgrade. But I don't have Navigation in Laredo. Is it in the model from before.

Burger,

Interesting development. Can you PM me on this one please?/

RHP is explained in this link.

Better nav/radio/enhancement features for Chrysler Uconnect.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Don't reply. Have read the fine print. For first model WK. I thought Jeep were doing upgrade to systems like in USA where you can pay to have Navigation turn on base models.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Yep, reading it , only a 6.5inch screen. Got plenty of other features on it though over and above the 8.4 Uconnect.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Doesn't Jeep know what model I have. Offered free $200 update to a system I don't have. Could be new policy to save money offer something you cant cash in. They should know me as I have rang them a few times.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Got my replacement JGC Overland CRD from DVG Maddington tonight. A big thanks to Benny in sales and his manager Tony for pushing it through licensing and pre-delivery to make up for Allianz' delays. If DVG had processed the car by the book, it would have ended up being a four week wait to replace the written off car. My partner's staff member had a "new for old" in two weeks via SGIO... without grief. Anyway...

Lessons:
- Keep up with your modifications and list all accessories. We hadn't listed a few things such as the skid plates, towbar and mudflaps. These easily sucked up the $2k unlisted accessories provisions, which I guess we were very lucky to have.
- Hire car was optioned out because we had three cars upon insuring the Jeep, but then I sold one. Based on the processing of our claim by Allianz, two weeks hire would have been quite insufficient. I can only imagine how long you'd need a hire car for if a significant repair was required given Jeep's spare parts situation. You'd probably be best off buying a heap to run around in.
- When it seems like you're being dealt one last sh!t sandwich... keep cool. You never know when someone is going to step up and do you a massive favour at the last minute.

Oh, aside from the EcoDiesel badge on the tailgate, the new car almost feels different to the last. I'm sure the transmission is smoother... I hope it doesn't learn any bad behavior. The finish is better in most places, especially where stones and pleb's doors left their mark on the last one. However there's no way any of these minor observations are worth the impact... emotionally or physically... of the accident. Plus I still have to do another towbar installation, and bang on some skid plates.

It ain't over yet!

Ciao,
Steve

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Steve, could you get the skid plates etc off the old one, or too late?
I made damn sure all accessories were covered for this very reason, and decided on the max 20 day hire car coverage.
