Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

I have decided to avoid the pain factors by not tracking it. In my opinion I have no influence in the poor process at jeep Australia therefore decided to act dumb and wait till the car arrive. I ordered in March and dealer said delivery in late June 2012. So wait and see I guess, no point loosing sleep over it. For me there is more important things to than deal with grubby jeep dealer. Its funny how the dealer does not pick up the phone etc after you have signed up. . Perhaps Jeep Australia should offer free anger management course to GC buyers after sign up J

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

One of the benefits I found with tracking was the Build Sheet. Without that I would have been delivered a GC which had been ordered by the dealer incorrectly. They ordered the wrong upholstery. I was able to detect that from the Build Sheet, and have another car built straightaway. Otherwise, I would not have found out until I went to collect the car, meaning a further 5 month wait.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

There must be as spare one on that ship. I was offered it but the dealer asked for an extra $3k. Chose to wait another 6 weeks as mine is now sailing down the east cost of the US.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Anyone in the Qld state, with a car on the Talisman, good news... sort of.
The ship is several hrs ahead of schedule, and looks to be berthed at Fishermans Is wharf around 10pm tonight instead of tomorrow. It is currently about 40nm nth of Cape Morton

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Weird happenings aboard the Talisman.
It is due to head to Port Kembla tonight. However, there is no schedule of expected arrivals in Port Kembla on 26th for that ship. I Also was sure that the Talisman was due to head for Melb after Pt Kembla, but now see it is going directly to Fremantle. Due there on 1st May. I very much doubt if they would offload the NSW cars in Brisbane then freight them down, so suspect Port Kembla shipping arrivals is not complete?

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Mine is now listed as "Liner release Port Kembla" on the track and trace site.

I guess that means the Talisman must be heading for port Kembla.

Voyage schedule lists Brisbane, Port Kembla, Fremantle then Singapore.

This is the link that I'm also using for schedules.

sagaweb.2wglobal.com/AppSchedules/tradeRouteSearch.do?routeId=OCNAI&actionType=gener atePDF

After Pt Kembla, Talsiman changes voyage codes, does Freemantle then heads off to Japan.

Hope this helps (More importantly, Taiko is ON IT'S WAY!!!!) Would be interested in any links to webcams at Panama and NZ.
