Re: Trail Hawk in Australia

I'd say it will be the old spec (2011 & USA) chassis design that they decided to bring back to Aus just for this model. Just to remind everyone else what they can't get anymore...

Maybe someone with a MY11 model can see that he hooks are the same...

Re: Trail Hawk in Australia


Look what Jeep's response to Studgun's comment on their Facebbok page was concerning the recovery hook.

Jeep Australia Hi Rhys, i think it was a pedestrian safety rating issue that caused the tow hooks to be removed from the standard WKs but because the Trailhawk is a low volume model and is targeted at off road users they were include. We do apologise for any inconvenience and if you wish to discuss this further with our customer assistance team please call them on 1300 133 079.

Re: Trail Hawk in Australia

...so that's the reason why we don't get a "Trail Rated" badge on our WK2's. They are not intended for off road!!

Isn't this the perfect quote to take to fair trading. It totally contradicts the ad.

Re: Trail Hawk in Australia

Absolute disgrace.

I notice that there are quite a few Trail Hawks on Carpoint now, priced between low 70's to high 70's. They seem over priced to me.
