The dealer has known this for a while now and had not informed me until today when I asked. Appraently I am not alone there are another 8 vehicles unaccounted for. This means I have payed my deposit nearly 3 mths ago and my GC has not even been alocated a number, meaning the order still has not been accepted by JEEP. I have been told I will just have to wait ! If you havent got a VON number make sure you do so you are not left in the dark like me.
I wouldn't give up there and I'm sure others would agree. Track down your Chrysler Jeep State office and ask the question and if still not satisfied, contact Chrysler Australia in Victoria. You just might get the good news your looking for. Same thing happened to me although mines a stock build. Took me a month or so to get my VON after placing the order and immediatly found out is was built waiting shipment. Theres a huge resistance to give out the VON's to the customer and I can't for the life of me figure out why. Best of luck Mate.

Edit..AllyPally is correct. Tell them its a 7 digit number beginning with E

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Many dealers have no idea what a VON is.
Ask them for the ORDER number. It is the same thing.
If they placed an order with Chrysler Aust, they would have the Order number within a week or so. If the dealer is stating that they cannot find the car they supposedly ordered, then they have not ordered it. It really is basic commonsense. There is no logic to the statement that Jeep have not accepted an Order. Afterall, I assume they are still in the business of selling cars. Follow GlennR's advice and seek out the State Rep.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

It's called a COM number in Australia. Tynan's supplied mine within 3 or 4 business days.

I'd say the dealer is the issue, not Jeep. If what I went through at the Rosebery branch of the same chain is any indication. Take it up directly with Jeep.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

MY 2012 order book is closed. Any orders now will be MY 2013. Production starts mid late July so an order today will wait a minimum two months prior to being built.

2014 CRD/8spd, early 2013 release!

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Biff a COM number or E number.
Most dealers are reluctant to hand them out

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

It would appear that those cars that arrived in Port Kembla on the 26th April, onboard the Talisman, have been cleared from Prixcars.
They should be starting to be delivered to dealerships tomorrow.

Further to this post Milous has said there is no delay in changeover in production. It's starts July 2 so delay mightn't be as bad as first thought.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

My vehicle should dock in Melbourne tonight, so I'm hopeful for (but not expecting) delivery to me in Adelaide this month. 21 May will be 5 months from paying the deposit, which reminds me I get that refunded as part of the lease... That will cover the accessories I've ordered from justforjeeps.com and haven't told the other half about yet...
