Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Here's hoping. Why have they released the news story then saying that all cars delivered to date will only be used for chrysler Australia management to test and use for media reasons.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

That released statement is idiotic.
I very much doubt if any Chrysler Aust executive would have the ability to "ńssess or test " a vehicle. They can't even manage the delivery of cars,parts, and decent servicing let alone work out technical and mechanical problems in a car that has already been tested by engineers, and driven by the public without any major problems being raised.
Pure Dribble.
If any of them have the capability to read, and visit this thread, my advice would be to pull their fingers out, release the selling price so we can gauge the overpricing, and deliver those cars to those who have paid a deposit in good faith.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

This is what I would expect from CJD, as they seem to think we are all stupid.
If they want to sell cars, then they need to provide pricing, people do not like signing blank order sheets.
They need to provide info on delivery of our cars.
They need to have dealers that do not suffer from NFI.
They need to have a better parts supplies.
They need to have better dealer servicing.
They need a factory warranty we can buy post sale.

It is really not that hard....

This is what I was trying to get to. Until the US lock in sufficient supply, a model can often be delayed.

I 100% agree the system is not ideal, communication is not up to industry standard, and certain individuals at dealerships can amplify the situation. it was the case when WK first arrived in Australia (except on a much larger scale given SRT's more 'enthusiast niche') and steps are in place that has seen definite improvements over the last 12 months.

Unfortunately it is not unique to CJD (remember when WRX very first arrived, with customers paying $!5k+ over sticker, or even Yamaha R1), or countless others.

Being the first punter in line with cash SHOULD see them rewarded, but often its the opposite with frustration the result.

For the record, I was not making any excuses for the dealer, distributor or otherwise. Just saying (for those that may no know) there is often more to the story.

Finally, I've driven the new SRT and am having sleepless nights over the arduous wait for mine, now made even longer. Cold comfort, but it WILL be worth the wait... for those that CAN wait that long... I realise many won't.

Hi ***, I have been told the same, however, I am trying to get it in writing as you know what it is like getting verbal commitments.

Will do everything to get the Stock controller to let me know today.

Cheers *****
Ah yes ... the salesman pushing it onto the stock controller. Watch out because that's another dealer trick. Nissan played that one on me a couple of times.

The stock controller actually has little control over this.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

I found out about this forum and dealer issues after ordering, if i knew before I would looked at putting clauses in contract to force them give all information.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

I used to work in Stock Control and the best they can do is track to see where about's the vehicle is.. It is up to the sales manager to contact the area officer to confirm what marketing department at Chrysler are doing about the launch date.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Just further confirmation of the delay due to global demand. http://www.goauto.com.au/mellor/mell...2579F3000B9D5C.

Interestingly the Jeep SRT was originally pencilled for March arrival and the 300C SRT for June/July.. and the latter is still on track. Would not have picked that, considering the Chrysler is an all-new launch compared to the Jeep being a tricked out version of something that's been around for 18 months+. Ah well...

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

According to the above list, 3 are going to Perth. 2 of them would already be there, and the 3rd about to arrive on 13th aborad the Tysla. If you could find where they are being stored, you might be able to sight them.
My guess they are either with PrixCars or the main dealership.
