Question on Melbourne servicing. I bought at Nunawading but since then Hawthorn has opened within walking distance from my office. Has anyone had experience with Hawthorn?

This also happened to me. I think it is actually the 'adjuster' that causes it. I pumped the pedal maybe 10 times after checking the cable was still attached and it came back up to normal operation.

I'll give that a go in the morning. Funnily enough I applied the break when I got home today out of habit and it felt, not normal, but better than just sinking to the floor.

Average fuel consumption was 13.1 litres per 100 Kays travelling mostly at 90-100 kph. It was also good to see so many other Grand Cherokees out on the road. On the return trip home had the 30,000k service done at Port Augusta, when I booked service explained that I would be supplying my own oil, when I picked up the car they had performed service with their own 5w30 oil, said I am not going to pay for your oil, so had the service done for just $160. All I paid for was labour and filter, and I still have my mobil esp 5w30 for next service.

I was wondering what size and weight is your Jayco Heritage, we are currently looking at a Jayco Silverline for our around Aust trip.
Thanks.

-Do they have to be run flats? All tyre places tell me that it must be replaced with run flats, Jeep dealer had no idea and didnt want to give me advice and pointed me towards the tyre deal

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, dont want to park the car up for a month

cheers
In the states the "Pirelli Run Flat tires are covered for Road Hazard damage under the Pirelli Original Equipment and
Replacement Limited Warranty"

worth a try here ....

MY14 Laredo Camera Replacement Final Update!!

My Jeep dealer rang me yesterday and said, "Would you accept an update camera with applique?"
Hmmmmmmmmmm, had to think long and hard but finally accepted the kind offer.
Had it fitted this morning and an initial test showed a big improvement on the original Crappy Chrysler Camera.

Photos attached but in optimal light for Melbourne this time if the year. I need to go to QLD or wait till December in Vic for bright sunlight test.
Will also test it tonight but also expect a big improvement.

Service Manager said, "Be thankful because its the last one in Vic and NSW and all the rest are on backorder." No worries, I am behooved to Chrysler for something that they should have supplied in the first place.

He also said that NO other early MY14 Laredo's are being retrofitted but because I am a good customer, then I deserve one and they look after good customers.

I should be a good customer because i waited 10 months for the bloody thing in the first place.

So I thank all the members for the great support, victory is mine with your help. But from the inference from them, each must go and bitch and whinge on your own behalf because Jeep Aust arent going to voluntarily retrofit the new cameras.

They are still getting off lightly because there is still the matter of False and Misleading Advertising in their brochures and online websites to consider.

Good luck to all.

Bluey

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Well done Bluey, you fought the good fight!! Shame Jeep aren't replacing all cameras, just seems to reinforce the notion of poor customer support.
