Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi all!
My name is Shane from Aus, I am new to this forum and mostly just read without posting much.
I've had my GC for 6 weeks now and am loving it with 4,500kms already clocked!
She is a MY14 Limtited CRD in deep cherry red with luxury pack II and pano sunroof.
I was lucky enough to have the dealer find me one with my specs and delivery was only two weeks. Only thing missing was tow bar but I figured it should be easy to source one. A front window tint should finalise the package nicely.
Coming from an FG falcon turbo I am quite impressed with the diesels power delivery. We test drove Prado, Territory and Pajero and the GC won us over for our young family duties!!

Re: Introduce Yourself

Welcome Shane, there seems to be many of us who have come from driving Ford Turbos. I had a BA XR6T, BF Typhoon, Turbo Territory Ghia and a FPV GTE.

Glad to see you are enjoying your new ride, they are a great car.

Re: Introduce Yourself

I traded in My Tuned 2010 Subaru Liberty GT Wagon.
That was quick off the line but the GC has plenty of grunt and can tow !

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi all, great to join this forum.

NAME: Michael

VEHICLE: 2014 CRD Limited in Maximum Steel Metallic

MODS: Towbar, paint and interior proection. Planned to do onroad/cosmetic mods, then offroad.

DATE ORDERED: Jan 2014

DATE DELIVERED: Jan 2014. Had one in stock.

I've already started planning mods. Just as an aside, I noticed when looking underneath the rear of the car that the brackets holding the dual exhausts seem rusted??? Is that normal? See photos.

I've started a thread for my car in the member's rides section

VEHICLE: MY14 Summit - Granite Crystal

MODS: Tow bar, Trailer Brakes

DATE ORDERED: 13th Jan

DATE DELIVERED: 24th Jan
_______________

Hi all,
This is my first Jeep. Was all set to order a Touareg when I found out a new model was due soon. Didn't want to get caught with "the old shape". Looked at the CRD Jeep as it's one of the few comfortable vehicles that can tow 3.5 tonne. I had a Limited to test drive for a day and I ended driving it to a VW dealer to drive the Touareg again, to compare the motors. The Fiat diesel in the Jeep is every bit as responsive as the VW.
In the end the dealer did me such a good deal on the Summit I got all the features I wanted for about $25k less than the VW.

Hi All

NAME:Mike

VEHICLE:JGC Laredo Bright White (3.0 CRD)

MODS: Quadralift (already on an in stock vehicle) Bull bar (ECB) & Towbar (Halls), Trailer Brakes(Tekonsha P2), Anderson & 12 Pin trailer connector

DATE ORDERED: 16/1/2014

Looking forward to take delivery - I saw a pre delivery checklist someone had posted re latest software and other issues - can someone please point me to a link ? I was also previously looking seriously at a Touareg - only went to look at a Jeep to take it off my list !! Ended up ordering one ~ $57K all up - at least ~$25K cheaper than the 180kw Touareg. Thanks & Cheers for now.

Hi Mike, the latest export software is 13.59.1.
The latest the dealer is guaranteed to have is 13.39.51, if you're lucky they will 13.43.7.

It is safe & easy to download and install 13.59.1 yourself directly from Uconnect (so covered by warranty), see this thread for info -

UConnect 8.4 International / Export

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi Snuke,

Thanks for the prompt reply.

I believe I also saw a comprehensive pre-delivery PDF or Word document checklist - no sense in re-inventing the wheel - can you point me to that document also ? Thanking you in advance, Cheers Mike

No idea what you're referring to.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi Snuke - I thought I saw a pre delivery/ acceptance checklist for the JGC that someone created prior to accepting their new Jeep. Maybe it was in a different Jeep Forum - if I locate it I will post it here as it may be useful to others when they go to collect their new vehicle.

Found this on the overarching forum late last year, saving it for when I take delivery mid year
