Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Having read many of the comments about lack of service and access to spare parts, I spoke to the Manger at the Jeep dealership where we picked up our car today.


He agreed that there had been problems, but stated that he believed many of the problems would be resolved with the new Mopar warehouse in Port Melbourne. Access to spare parts would be from Melbourne not America or Singapore.

No offence intended, but I have been told the same ....."you know what" since May, and am still waiting parts to fix mine. Coupled with a quote for my 10k service that has magically increased by $130 to $580 because the oil is $22/L, I hope you have better luck than many on this forum.

EDIT: - To clarify, my dealer stated moving parts to Melbourne has been on a par to the Qld Health payment debacle, with no record of whats gone into stock coupled with the roll out of a computer system that failed, making the situation a lot worse than it was before the centralisation.

Sorry to burst your bubble but the new warehouse hasn't fixed things yet - my experience is they still dont have a big stock of parts and the dealers still struggle to find part numbers for parts that are out of the ordinary.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Ruby, unfortunately you have been hit with "Dealer Speak"
It is a lowlife form of communication which even at it's best, is flawed with unreliable and completely fabricated statements, which we in Public Land know as lies or fantasy.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

But dont let this worry you - I'm sure you will enjoy your new Jeep.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

Unless he said the 7th. I was in the middle of writing a ticket when the dealer called (105 in a 70 zone and she wanted a caution. I'm a fair guy, but come on now...) so I didn't quite catch everything that was said. I'll check tomorrow.

Also, just noticed my rep power. When did it get so high, and how does one even increase their rep power?

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

...was she in a GC CRD? Speed sneaks up on these beasts like you wouldn't believe...soooo quiet yet as powerful as hell! No excuse for speeding but these things should have a warning chime if you go over the limit.

A Hyundai Elantra.

Oh, the GC doesn't have a speed warning? My XR6 has one. Set it to the speed, chimes if you go over. That said I never use it as the speed limit is either 50 or 130, so cruise control does the trick.

Re: Downunder - Orders to Delivery thread

105 in a Hyundai? Must have had a strong tail wind.
My GC has a speed alert.
It's the wife screaming in my ear, and digging her claws into my leg.
