I've previously asked for an order number and have had no luck with them providing me one!

Re: SRT8 Delayed!

Apparently until a vehicle is designated to my dealership, I can't get an order number.

That sounds logical from a dealership point of view.
However, I would have assumed that when you placed an order for a SRT8, you specified the paint colour, the upholstery colour, as well as possibly some accessories? If so, then an "Order" would have needed to be placed with Jeep US, the manufacturer. If that is the case, then Chrysler Aust would have the Order number, and due to their arrogance, have decided to hold that information and not release it for whatever nieve reason.
I personally feel you are entitled to that information if you placed money with them in the form of a deposit. If Chrysler Aust would not release that number to you, I would be asking them for a good valid reason why not.

Re: SRT8 Delayed!

Confirmation from our dealer that until Chrysler has enough stock across Australia by each dealer at least having one for the showroom floor, the launch will be delayed. Hopefully looking at early July.

From the area manager to the dealers this morning:


subject: Grand Cherokee SRT8 launch date

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I know you have taken orders and the receiving a number of enquiries for the all new SRT8 Grand Cherokee. The launch date of the new Grand Cherokee SRT8 is expected to be in August/September.
Our aim is to ensure we have enough stock for all dealers at launch.
I will keep you informed closer to the time of the exact date.

Re: SRT8 Delayed!

That is disgusting. The MY13 would have rolled out by then. Also, all those cars that were built over 2 months ago will have been sitting around for about 6months. What a stupid decision.

The only Aussie-bound SRT models that have been built so far are the 100 or so that are the one-per-dealer demos. From what I can tell, the "volume" retail vehicles will be 2013 models that will start production in early July.

Exactly! I won't be taking delivery of an March production in September that's for sure! I'd prefer to wait another month and have a July even thought it won't be one of the first in Wa to own one.

They are also trying to get us to cancel the deal and resign when they are launched which leads me to believe the sale price may be more than our order price.

Probably overfill orders.
Many people who did place an order have since cancelled and moved on as many of those 132 cars have been in Australia for months, and just sitting in storage yards awaiting the whim of Jeep Australia to actually release them to the public.

I personally would not touch one, as they are about to commence the building of the MY13 model, so by the time 1 of the 132 has been sold, it will already be last year's model.

Jeep Aust think all buyers are stupid.
