Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Quick question, those that have picked up their new cars recently, did the dealer perform all the TSB's and flash updates to bring the car up to spec before you accepted delivery?. I note there have been two TSB's whilst mine has been on the water, one regarding flat batteries and the most recent, the alarm going off intermittently.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Shame there is no way of knowing for sure...unless the service book is marked up?

I was advised that all updates were performed as part of the predelivery.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

I also asked the question and was told that updates were part of the predelivery.

Right now though I notice there is a tsb 08-025-12 relating to the radio software dated 14 April that will apply to ours. It relates to issues with the RB2 radio waking up and draining the battery - a few reported on this forum.
Software on ours is 10.00.10 and the update is 10.00.11.
I've got it noted for the 10k service that will happen in the next month.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Quick question, Allypally. Did the build sheet show the beige seating or the saddle. Curious as to date, I've assumed if build sheet is ok, then all is well with order. In my case having ordered beige, the saddle would equal a v. unhappy wife which will equal unhappy life if they get it wrong!!!

Hope you are enjoying the vehicle after the long wait.
Thanks.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Ross, The forum will only allow you to have one vehicle in tracking and therefore only 1 buildsheet.
If I did hve a 2nd build sheet, it would definitely have shown that the upholstery was in fact Saddle.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Thanks Allypally ... now I understand .... and can breathe easier

Another question. My vehicle has finally got to Curtis Bay. How did you work out what vessel your vehicle was on? I can see a marine traffic site for tracking but can't figure how you use the VIN to get the ship!

Thanks again.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Go to the shipping site, enter the customer section, and click on Trace. Input your VIN in the customer ref field and Enter.
If you car is "booked" on a ship, it will give you the details of the ship, it's departure dte, arrival port etc. Once it is loaded, you will see what time it was driven onto the ship.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Hmm. I must be looking at the wrong site. I'm looking at marinetraffic.com but can't see a customer section. Can I ask you for the web site?
Thanks for this help!

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

HI Ross,
Try this link, then click on Customer Centre, then Track and Trace then enter your VIN under cargo ID.

Good Luck.

PS, Once you are on the water there are other tracking sites and WebCams portside to keep you occupied for the next month!

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Thanks for the reply and site,GlennR. I have tried a few sites including this one but there is no record of the VIN. I'm assuming I have to wait until the jeep is loaded to see it although one of Allypally's posts seemed to suggest you could see it once booked but I've probably misunderstood. Anyway found the Baltimore shipping schedule and can see that there are departures 9,10 and 17 May so I should be able to figure out from vessel departure date in status if I'm patient!
Almost sorry I started tracking this .... its like watching paint dry for extended torture
