I think that is main phone number, so just ask to get transferred to Jeep.
I have been talking to Kurt but last time he couldn't find anything. Was probably too early so will try again in the next days.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I thought they were using the CON Nr in the contract reference?

Not on my contract. There is a field for it though but that's blank.

AWWW YEAH!

I spoke to my dealer yesterday, they reckon it will come in to the dealership on the 13th Dec.

I haven't got any accessories etc to fit, so hopefully can take delivery within a couple of days of that date

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I am guessing you will be given the keys on friday 16th. Merry X-Mas
It will most likely be going to Minto today, and then awaiting their clearance.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

What about a version where the week starts on Monday instead of Sunday?

Sticking a few Calendars in an envelope and distribute within Aus may also help saving on postage.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Can't help being a little envious that others are getting their new Jeep (but good luck to them).
Ours can be added to the list...
Bright Silver Laredo with Quadralift and dealer fitted towbar and wiring.
Ordered Gold Coast 20/9/11
ETD given at order time - Mid Feb 2012
Current ETD (from weekly updates) Mid Feb 2012

Yay, only 2 and a bit months to go!!

O and tried to get a VIN or E number from the dealer - nope - says VIN not available until vehicle arrives in Australia.
Yep, I know this is rubbish -- just goes to show the difference in dealer policy and customer focus around the country.

Hehe I've been waiting since May 15th, It's been a longgggg wait. Reading/posting on JeepGarage helps sometimes, but sometimes its just like ffs, everyone's getting their car before me.

My Dealer stalled on a VON for quite a while, I kept on pushing and eventually once I was "allocated" a car, then he gave me the VON. It also means you'll be waiting and no chance of an early car.

I asked for the chrysler order number from mine, and they were happy to give it out - also said vin isnt available but ask specifically for the above and I reckon they will give you one.

The head sales manager from where mine is coming from said he gets daily/weekly email alerts when they receive a number in Jeeps system.

Let him know to look around and look for a number that begins with E and has around 8 digits.

Mine was ordered late Oct Mineral Grey Laredo with QL and ORAII and dealer fit Towbar, and currently estimated delivery is End of Jan/Feb also. Although starting to doubt that it will be here by then as its still not built..

Re: WK2 DownUnder

For a Feb delivery, that car would be near the production line and definitley have a CON (In USA they call it a VON)
If you cant get satisfaction from the delaer, go to Jeep Australia.
There is a phone number a few pages back in this thread of a lady to call. She is most helpful.
Once you have the CON, you can become a donating member of this forum ($30) and one of the members (MILOUS) will track your car for you.

Well in fairness i did say that I do receive weekly updates..even tho from first placing the order in September they just say "your Jeep is on track for delivery mid February..have a nice day".
I emailed then rang asking for a VIN, then E or any order reference and got the "it's in the pipeline - no number available - trust me".
That's why I noted (and for a couple of salesman related porkies), there seems to be a difference in customer focus between dealers.
I definitely have the feeling they (as in this dealer's policy), are reluctant to commit themselves to a number as it rules out doing late deals and swapping vehicles to get the best result for themselves.
Anyway - mid Feb they said and that's not here yet so I'll continue to trawl around and aquire info - its all worthwhile...

And thanks Allypally, I might take up your suggestion but I don't want to roughen the water too much between me and the dealer, we're in this for the long haul and there's a long way to go yet...(takes deep breath)>

John
