Cool Check Carsales before you order, some dealers have them now...

I was looking at carsales.com.au today and noticed there were 369 2011/12 JGC's listed. Out of this were 80 CRD's all new or ex Demo, and they were all in stock.
So for anyone who is thinking about ordering one and told it is a 6 month wait, may be able to get one in stock.

Re: Check Carsales before you order, some dealers have them now...

Just because they have an add on carsales doesnt mean they have them in stock. I fell for that trick as well. Called the dealers up and they said some of the cars they put on there are orders they dont even have yet, or they are just up there for advertisement reasons etc.

Re: Check Carsales before you order, some dealers have them now...

I found that too. One dealer kept advertising a max steel crd laredo for a few weeks, and each time I enquired it was "sold this morning".

But still worth enquiring just in case their is a legit ad there.

Re: Check Carsales before you order, some dealers have them now...

Most of the ads had the picture of the car in the showroom.
It is worthwhile looking around and paying $3k more is not much when you do not need to wait for 6+ months. I saw several Overland CRD's for $77k drive away, that is only $600 more than I paid last year.

Re: Check Carsales before you order, some dealers have them now...

I vey much doubt if you will find many CRD's in showrooms. Many of those advertised are either cancelled orders, or dealers orders, in transit on ships.
There does appear to be an abundance of petrol V6's in yards though.

Re: Check Carsales before you order, some dealers have them now...

Good to see more of these units on our streets without the agony of waiting months on end.

I hate to reopen a painful flesh wound for your 2012 owners but with the links Enforcer has provided, this is the first time I have seen a unit without the front tow hooks! Certainly looks a little bare!

Re: Check Carsales before you order, some dealers have them now...

Carsales is exactly how I found some Overland CRD's to choose from. I too got the sad old story from my local dealers in the Newcastle area all too happy to take a deposit for a 4-6 month wait.

Most dealers I spoke to advertising at Carsales did not have the car but "had one on the way". Orange or Parkes somewhere out there had not 1 but 2 and one was set up with underbody armour, but white was not on the wifes' shopping list. There was one up north NSW well within budget and was that very nice dark metallic gray colour and we would have gone that way if our black one had not come up.

One of my replies through Carsales was from a Sydney dealer and gave us a fair trade in on my wifes' Hyundai Santa-Fe, no mucking about all done on computer and over the phone. Being a new dealer only opened for 3 weeks thay were allocated cars already on the ship being transported over.

No 4 month wait for me.
From the time I started looking to the day of purchase was 6 days. Our black CRD Overland was delivered a few weeks after that. The dealer was in contact every few days and I cannot complain about the service from my dealer. If anyone wants the dealer details feel free to P.M. me.

Thanks
John.

Re: Check Carsales before you order, some dealers have them now...

I looked at the exact one I wanted that was in stock. They weren't going to budge one dollar. I saved $5K by waiting for mine to be built.

I am a patient man............it will arrive soon enough.
