Meet GC Ted
He goes every were with me.
Never talks back.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just a question has anyone had a 10K service done on a diesel yet or has anyone got any idea on service costs in general.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I dont think I have ever heard of a car sitting on the dock for 1 month.
Cars are generally moved off the dock witin 48hrs, as they need the space. I tend to agree with AUSSIE WK2, in as much as something else is going on with that car that you are not being told about. Are we being paranoid?
Even if it was accidentally shipped to Perth, it would not take that long to retrieve it.
Maybe a call to Jeep Australia would throw some light on the issue? If you find that the car was immediately shipped, then definitely be concerned.

Cool, but careful or you're going to have to fight him for the steering wheel.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Re: WK2 DownUnder

who has some contact nubers for people in Jeep Australia,

The only numbers I find direct me to the local dealers

and OH yeah, mine has been delayed AGAIN. Been almost a month since it got to Australia

I really hope all the dramas stop once we get the vehicle and this isn't going to continue on forever

So, you have had a VIN and have been tracking it?

Me thinks that yours may have been sold to someone else and that they are waiting for another one.

I am sure that phone numbers have been listed in the Aussie section previously, just have to find them.
