I see several complaints have been made to the ACCC, so this might get interesting.
Jeep Australia can't manage their own workplace, let alone try to attempt to run a raffle.
I agree, initially I thought it was just sour grapes, but looking at what happened on their facebook page it seems that Jeep Oz really messed it up.

The secret number(s) got posted online (somewhere?) before the 9am kickoff, so some people already had the number ready to go before the phone app displayed it. Jeep Oz found out about this, and in an attempt to rectify said they will keep the phone lines closed for 20 seconds so everyone has a fair chance to call. BUT the phone app crashed and didn't give the number out until 4 mins after the lines opened. Meaning those with the inside info of the numbers posted online had an advantage and those following the rules missed out.

It's a mess, Jeep Oz didn't rectify the problem correctly when the number got leaked online, they went for a dodgy quick fix that wasn't sufficient.....

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Review | CarAdvice

This would be the best car ever I have owned, after driving Ford’s, Holden’s, Toyota’s and Mitsubishi’s. The comfort and economy is terrific and towing a van the power is fantastic you don’t even feel like you are towing anything, as for driving on dusty gravel roads even with the van on I have never had a problem with dust getting in the vehicle and the handling and response has been great on the gravel.

Hey Benno what tyres are you running - my Khumo's have some life left but heading to Mt Augustus next month towing a Jayco Eagle and I think I should have something more sensible on...?

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Coopers STMaxx, but anything in an LT construction would be a good idea I'd say.

edit: And that isn't my review, just something I found online. I don't tow.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

The lack of quotation marks made me think that was your comment below a review. It wasn’t until I read the link I saw it was from the review.
