Any advise would be appreciated.

I just gave them $2000. suppose to be the minimum to secure a order.
Was going to pay more but glad i did not. If I had known it was going to take this long I could have put the money on a term deposit account for 6 months.
The only thing I don't like is I will most likely have to renegotiate with the bank for the remainder, interest rates could go either way. They did say they would honor the contract for 3 months (fixed interest term for the life of the loan)

My guy only wanted $1k, but as it is a 30500 changeover, I made it easy and placed a 10500 deposit now. Best part of my negotiations were to put it on an Amex credit card, so I'll be picking up 1.5 qf points per dollar woop

Edit:btw, that's Amex for the whole 30500 woop woop

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I only put down $500 and I will sell my car privately so delays are not a major pain. I waited 14 weeks for my BF Typhoon, so I hope it will be worth it.
Jeep need to realise that there are a lot of people who just read forums to assist them in buying a car. They never post and may change their mind over what is said in these places. Information is power and people selling stuff need to realise that we have alot of info and market influence.
I think it would be a good idea for Jeep Oz to have an official rep on these forums, as they are more public than failbook and it would allow them to fix problems and turn people towards their brand.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Well done, Jeep do not have the best reputation downunder, so they cannot afford to have lost clients over a communications breakdown at THEIR END !!!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I dont know if this is any help to anyone, but my dealer here is Brisbane just told they have been advised they have a CRD Laredo, blrilliant black with QL on the way confirmed and its not sold. Should be available in about 8-12 weeks.

This was mentioned to me the other day as well (although QL and time frame was not mentioned), the wife is not fussed on black and the car will be mine, i mean hers.

Unhappy Re: WK2 DownUnder

Today I finally got a call from Chrysler Australia about my order. Having tried hard to get information for 3 weeks it wasn't too soon either. Maybe others have got calls too?

The guy asked if I would take any other specification than what I ordered. When I asked for a delivery time for my specific order before making that decision, he couldn't give any, just said "at least 3 months".

He did explain some. Chrysler Australia does NOT send your specific order to the US factory. They order a number of cars in different specs/colours based on their own beliefs of what the customers want.

In other words: An order is just a lottery ticket for next time they coincidentally have what you ordered available.

The reason for delays to Australian deliveries is because the factory has pushed out production of right hand drive models, he said. He assured me that there is no truth to rumours of Quadra Lift not being available until the end of next year.


Laredo 3.6 Whitegold w/QL ordered 6th Feb.
