Re: WK2 DownUnder

first week August, end of August, August September.
How many ships with jeeps on are coming to Oz.
When I first looked at the GC the dealer told me they got 3 to 4 shipments a year.
Well we will see what happens.
Just be patient they will get here.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I think the best way forward is to demand a VOR/Enumber/VIN from the dealer.
If they give you some BS reason that Jeep has not allocated them yet, get onto Jeep Oz and start harrassing them. It is not acceptable to be fed BS about delivery, they should know and they do know when the ships will be landing and what stock they have. The only way to get action is a united front from us the clients to make them provide this info.
I was told that Jeep will be sending emails with VIN's attached for some survey. I will wait and see if this is the case, as I will be pressuring my dealer for a VIN as soon as they release the pricing and details of the CRD model.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Posted to Jeep Australia Twitter and Facebook sites. Will try anything. No reply from dealer and they said by Friday at the latest so one more day but I think I know what the answer will be... what a shocker. Great effort guys for at least creating a forum for me to better understand the issue.

BTW it was Laredo Bright Silver with QL.

Bundoora Jeep is getting a limited with QL (70th Anniversary) in next week or so. Not what I want but at least something is coming in.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Keen to purchase soon however I have a few questions

How much deposit should I put down to order ,

For the the guys that had a trade in ,did the dealers quote a trade in price and then honor it once the vehicle arrived a few month later ? or did the dealer revalue your trade in ?

Any advise would be appreciated.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

UNBELIEVABLE! Was gone in about 45min - they bloody deleted by post. Damn U Jeep Australia
This was the post:

This site has a list of people like me that are searching for reasons our GC orders are being delayed and in my case no delivery date can be given. Where are all the Laredos with QL? Ordered mine in Feb and Jeep Sales offering refund of deposit now... Just want my Jeep

Re: WK2 DownUnder

As i have said in previous posts, i got told by my dealer a few months ago after the Japan tsunami there wont be any laredos with QL until end of the year maybe early next year. I hope you dont have to wait that long!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I said that to my dealer and he said he hadnt heard that but makes sense - he said it wasnt affecting QL on limited or Overland. SO us 'poor cousins' with Laredos are second class citizens...

Couldnt Jeep Australia ot the dealer call me to tell me that. I think Im gonna get a Rubicon Wrangler and pimp it up instead. GC smooth ride out the door.

QUestion - Are the QUarda Lift suspensions parts produced in Japan? Where?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Yeah the reason was us poor cousins were giving away our quadra lift parts to the overlands. Im not sure where abouts in Japan, but i was told by the time it gets up and running, parts get sent to USA fitted to overland and limited models first and then laredos, shipped to australia it would be end of year. Makes sense to me, if anyone told me any different id be sceptical.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

If dealers are selling cars that they know they cannot supply for many months, they need to tell you. They cannot keep dragging your order along. 30 days after ETA you can cancel your order.
I saw your post and then noticed it was gone. Poor form if they did not contact you privately.
See if they do twitter ? or call up Jeep Oz and speak to someone in charge
