You have ordered at a bad time. The Order book for MY12 has closed, and they will not commence building MY13 models until some time in June.
This may mean that a Australian car may not hit assembly until July or Aug. I am guessing here.
Important thing is to obtain an Order number from the dealer. eg: E123456.
Once you have that you can begin tracking, then get the VIN once it leave the assembly line.

I take it that it's not long now then... Didn't hear from the dealership but the lease company said my salesman was away today. The dealer has invoiced the lease company for the car.
Next day (Wed) - email from the dealer, car is here, aiming for delivery Friday afternoon. Woo!

Thanks ally pally,

So I will get a my13 build? Should I just hold off and wait till 2013 to help resale?
The dealer is telling me he has nothing?

I got told this today from my dealer also.
July is looking like the build month for me.
September is looking like the delivery month.

They are still awaiting the order number from Jeep. then I'll start tracking mine too.

Should you wait?
That is a personal matter which only you can really consider. Unless you are wanting an Overland, the MY12 and MY13 should be exactly the same. Mind you, I did hear something about them fixing the recovery hook issue for MY13, buy replacing that part of the front chassis they previously chopped.
The other option, is to wait another year, and get a MY14, which probably will be the best of all.
Issue is, do you want a car now, or would you want to wait.
Have you rung around the delaerships? Some do actually have stock which they are not advertising. You would not be the first buyer to get a car they wanted within a week.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

I just confirmed June 8 as my delivery date. I'll be viewing my GC for the first time on Thursday next week.

So far so good. Tynans has been sensational as my dealer. I hope it keeps going that way.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

No ... I ordered, expected 3 month wait, timed my finances to suit that, and was then told there's an unallocated car already on its way. So I told them to get me a later car, but they decided to not risk an excessive wait and with my agreement took this one for a delayed delivery. It his actually been at the dealer since early this month. The date was set by me, but I had to take it on or before the original agreed date of 21 June.

Basically the opposite to what has happened with everyone else.
