Just interested to see if it was just my dealer or Jeep dealers in general.
I'll probably pay them a visit tomorrow.
I'd rather do it face to face than over the phone.

I can't imagine they'd be too peeved. They'll be able to sell it for more when it finally arrives.
I'll try and use my deposit to have a towbar fitted.

Hoping this will be the same.

My only real drama is I have to get across the city to pick it up, somehow...
Matty just be aware the 2nd hand unregistered car would have been in the Australian national system at one point or another and would be easy for Vicroads to identify it.

What you're doing (and what I did) is trying to get a new / unverified imported car into the national system which is what a dealer would normally do before we take delivery. You'll find registering a new car is not as cut and dry as a used one.

True..............never thought of it that way.....anyway, we'll see. I don't expect it to be knocked back..haha.

Can you tell me where it was that you located the VIN?
I assume it's not in an easily accessible spot, like my wifes 2012 Ford Focus, which has it in a panel in the lower left windscreen.....

Re: Opinions needed - thinking of cancelling order

Good luck Matty! Don't let your original dealer con you out out the deposit. They didn't deliver so they return the deposit.

Re: Opinions needed - thinking of cancelling order

I would be a bit worried myself why something could not have been done on the production floor, the last thing I would want after a big outlay is to be constantly returning a vehicle back to a dealer for warranty work. Especially as I have no faith in dealership workshops after a minor problem I needed fixed on my 06 GC which required me to take back five times, two times I didn't even leave the service area after being told problem was fixed. In regards to outlay I have been able to pick up a new GC diesel at a good price without having to order and wait,there are bargains around if you are prepared to do some foot work. All the best and I hope your purchase does not turn yellow like a lemon

Re: Opinions needed - thinking of cancelling order

The VIN is easy to find, I think his problem was the Engine number. This is on the drivers side of the bellhousing on the CRD. Real bitch to see.

Bought mine in Queensland, trucked it to NSW and registered it. Couldn't have been easier. One hour to get a blueslip inspection and then off to the RTA for rego. Why would it be "not as cut & dry" as a used one?

Try buying NSW and registering in Qld and then ask that question!

Well corrected!

From memory it's on the passenger side......

These are very useful, especially if they stuff up and install the wrong upholstery of even the wrong colour paint.
Hi,
I have become a contributing memeber and I can track it in regards to it's progress, but how to I get the build sheet to see that it has all the bits I ordered?

Re: Opinions needed - thinking of cancelling order

Finally managed to speak to the dealer.
I think he knew it was coming...
There was no issues whatsoever and he said he'll organise the deposit refund straight away. That money will most likely go straight back to them anyway as I'll need a towbar fitted.
$990 fitted for Mopar or $880 fitted for Hayman Reese...
Another decision I have to make, although if I get an HR bar then I won't have to take the edges off my WDH to fit.
