Since it is only 1am in the US don't think I will get an answer today.
Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

Saddle is nice. But black leather works for me too. And I too just want my new ride. can't wait any longer

Did you try to ask for VON or VIN number or whatever number for your order? I haven't ... but thinking about trying next time I call

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Milous,
We are trying to find out if the wk2 in Oz are coming with the extra cooling like the ones in UAE, can you get the build sheet of this vin 1J4R26GTXBC660031?
Its one I found from a dealer here. I will compare it to duncrawlers (UAE) build sheet.

Thanks Lawrie

Unhappy Re: WK2 DownUnder

Reading this thread - just joined forum and unlikely to actually own a Jeep!

Have been searching high and low for reasons why my bright silver Laredo with QF that was ordered in Feb is now unlikely to arrive as promised in May/June from Jeep Brighton.

I ordered and paid a deposit and so far they cant provide me with a date, not this month, next month or anytime for that matter. Nice huh. At least I am not alone I supose...

The response so far has been cryptic and no clear reason why some cars are coming and some are not. This is what I have so far from Jeep officially in n email (I have cut out the middle section and names):

We fully depend of Head Office info about delivery timing.
Sometimes we are not getting outcome we want and in case they shift timing
We can not do much about it... ...if you want refund, please confirm that so I can organise that.

So my options when I called yesterday - find a car or I have to cancel the order. Its ridiculous to sell something you cannot deliver and offer no reasonable explanantion for. I hope this gets lots of press coverage. I read that jeep whats to double sales by 2014 globally and in Australia and I was hoping to be part of that. Fat chance now.

I know how stressful it has been as we've been waiting since the start of march and haven't gotten any solid info. Only what we hear from others online but that does both get our hopes up and brings them back down depending who has heard what Just remember that you aren't alone in this drama and Jeep has acknowledged that we are in a crappy position so we can only remain positive and hope they will look after us once the Jeeps get here. There has been talk of a gift package etc
I know it won't be much, but it's gotta be better than not getting a new Grand at all.... then in 6 months when everybody else is driving there's wishing you had off just stuck it out

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I strongly suggest you contact them on Facebook, as it is very public and they seem to be very active in there. Ask them why you have been treated this way and what they are going to do about getting you the car you ordered NOW.
Most large businesses know that social networking can make or break a reputation for letting people down. It is not hard to keep someone in the loop, even if honesty lets you down, at least you know where you are in the Q and you know the truth.
I am waiting to get a VOR on my car and am hopeful I have a dealer that will not BS me. They have not released the pricing for the CRD yet, so I have a hemi priced CRD order.
You would think that if Jeep wants dealers to order these cars, they should know the pricing and delivery times.
I have been told late July for me, but I will not hold my breath until I get a VOR and start tracking it.
I would not cancel your order, as I think these cars ARE worth the wait.
Find someone who will tell you the truth and work a deal from there.
I am getting out of a Territory Turbo Ghia and am lookiing forward to getting ours.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I don't find facebook all that great, cant have a straight forward conversation.
It appears to be all over the place, unless your in and on it all the time you lose track of what is being said.

That's my thoughts about facebook. I posted there anyway see what happens.
