Re: WK2 DownUnder

I know where there is a white Overland that should be going cheap. My deal has really derailed!!!

Well I hope all you proud Jeep owners are enjoying your pride and joy. Our case is still the opposite. New parts arrived last Thursday, fitted Friday and two frantic days of attempting to program some new software into them has been fruitless. They have as from today lent us a new demonstrator Laredo CRD which although is fitted with a tow bar, does not have a brake controller wired in so will not be able to use it to tow our van. Statistics so far: Owned for 140days and 6000km. Been off the road in the workshop for 40 of those 140 days including the last 30. I am now at the stage of employing my lawyer for the next stage - Nothing less than my money back. I will not be buying another Jeep as I have no confidence any more in the training (or lack of) of the NZ agents, Sime Darby. This being my third JGC CRD in the last seven years is a tough call as I have been an ardent follower and ambassador for the brand.

I have now had my rant, and will now go and kick some tyres or something to try and release some of the frustration

Cheers Chris

I'm sorry to read this Chris. Unfortunately now the dealers seem to be the weak link. I wish the dealers could be "upgraded" to match the new Jeep models.

I'm in Sydney and we have a few Jeep dealers here but I'm now down to the last one, all others were happy to take my money but provided no useful service or support. I love the JGC (the WK2 will be my 3rd one) but the dealers...

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just had news from my dealer, who advised my delivery has been brought forward from May to end of March.

Has given me a LOCATE Nr. Is that good enough for Mileous?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Finally should be picking up mine tomoz

Few quick questions..
- Best Run in Technique?
- Can/Do you use high flow diesel pumps at servo or only normal pumps
- How do you disconnect the battery if doing any stereo/eletrical work? via battery underseat or engine connections?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

congrats enjoy.

Few quick questions..
- Best Run in technique?
My last car was a demo d4d prado i bought 12 months old with 8k on the clock. I image it was driven pretty hard from birth. 5 years old and 90k on the clock was running perfectly. So in the absence of any decent advice and through necessity, I have used mine as normal including some low range work. It seems fine but time will tell. I do ensure I warm it up properly before driving it and also running it on idle for a minute or two when stopping.
- Can/Do you use high flow diesel pumps at servo or only normal pumps?
No normal only. I tried hi flow last night unsuccessfully. I got about 20 litres in and gave up. (the normal is ok. It's not like filing 180 litres in the prado).
- How do you disconnect the battery if doing any stereo/eletrical work? via battery underseat or engine connections? No idea sorry.
