Re: WK2 DownUnder

OMG Awesome!

I am returning the Dodge Journey today because apparently they want to sell it, and the manager has just registered a V6 Grand Cherokee so he will swap them over. (So I will be renting a Grand Cherokee for the week before I get my baby!

AWWW YEAH!

Hahaha, depends on how new it is, if it is new, I will run it in properly, which includes a bit of WOT but only when the engine is completely warm.

Also, it will be interesting to see how the Pentastar is,

Re: WK2 DownUnder

It's a white gold Laredo with about 150kms on the clock. Feels so mad driving a grand Cherokee. The pentastar isn't too bad actually, and I dunno if I've got the 430 or the 730 head unit cos its still got the Hdd etc.

It's not insured for interstate travel though (being a demo), when I clearly told my dealer I need to drive it to Sydney on Friday. Then he was like we'll see you on Thursday. I'm hoping this can prioritize my delivery a bit lol. Otherwise do you reckon NRMA will let me take insurance out for a day and then change it to my car?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Spentan.
I picked up mine and drove 1000km open road from the dealer.
Used cruse and kept hitting the towhaul button.
Plus use ACC keep in the slow lanes gives plenty variety in speed.
And the occasional foot to the floor trying to avoid the kick down (got to do it gradually).

When we were looking to place an order in Sept. the salesman told us at the time that they were fitting the rearview camera locally to the WK2's due to a supply issue in the factory.
Surely they are not still doing that?
The US has models that have cameras as well, do we have some different sort of system?
Anyone know why the cameras aren't fitted in the factory?
