Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

ahh just like the black pearl from the pirate of Caribbean movies, ship carrying my jeep appeared in tasman sea from nowhere http://www.marinetraffic.com...it does not make sense why it can not drop off my jeep at Port Kembla before going all the way to Melbourne and coming back up to Port Kembla.

Peter Warren at Liverpool

Heartland Mtrs, Castle Hill
Heartland are new dealers for Jeep, so are tryin to build up a rapport. I also heard they got additional startup stock, so you could be lucky.
Parramatta motor group are good.

I have heard that Heartland were the cheapest in Sydney initially, and were offering deals which the other dealers just couldn't match, however have now started backtracking and refusing to honor quoted prices on recent stock. I don't have first hand knowledge of this, but I do know when I spoke to them their product knowledge was zip and they freely admitted they knew very little about the Jeeps they were selling. They did have a reasonable amount of start up stock, though not sure if that is still the case.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

You are probably right, as Heartland were a new starter in the Jeep line, and wanted to get a quick reputation and probably got some discounted stock fro Jeep Australia to get going. Now that they have probably sold that stock, they probably feel that they can fall in line with the rest.

I drove past them on the weekend, and it looked like a brown GC in their driveway. Looked nice colour.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Ordered 10 March and drove away from the dealership 22 June, last Friday. Shorter that the four month wait it was going to be - Thanks Rolfe Canberra.

Red Cherry, Frost beige, Overland CRD, tint, tow, roof bars! Off-road adventure pack - they are trying to source a couple of front recovery hooks.

Sounds like the car that they were rebuilding (3rd attempt) for me.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Finally it arrived but ......no chrome grill,that was orderd the same day as the car back on March 7. Can you belive it's on back order????
It really is a joke the parts issue and no one seems able to comit to a time frame for delivery or fitment. At least I will be able to fit my own chrome side steps and bling with the 22 inch wheels and tyres as I was proactive enough to order these in from USA a month ago. Will post some photos after the weekend.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Finally Toreador has dropped off my car at port kembla (01/07/2012), any others with their GC offloaded by Toreador? I was surprised how fast ships drop off cars and leave port. How long to clear prixcars and customs? Also how many km can I expect in fresh off the boat GC in Sydney?

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Mine had 17km on the clock when I first saw it at the dealers holding yard, and 23km when I took delivery at the dealership.

It also depends on whether the factory randomly picks your GC for a more involved road test, but even so it should only be a few more kms.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

The time at Prixcars can vary between 10 - 30 days.
Lately, they have been clearing around 10 days. Depends on quarantine and amount of cars to be cleared.
