Re: WK2 DownUnder

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.
I also have been talking to Chrysler Australia and contradict some of your information.
1 they do do specific orders, I have my VON and waiting for it to go into production.
2 Milous has confirmed the RHD are not done in production runs but are mixed in with the LHD builds.

Read the entire thread Milous did list the production of GC going to Oz and ones that were in production.
I think the first shipment is full of GC ordered by Chrysler Oz huridly ordered after they were found to be so popular.
Then they tried to put customer orders in amongst these and ballsed it all up.
That's what I think has happened.
Now they need to off load all these GC that are not customer orders but don't meet the specs of customer orders.

Make any sense

Re: WK2 DownUnder

You might be right but obviously they tell different stories to different people. I wish they would just tell the truth. Apparently they didn't order a car for me and I call that a failure!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

so I dont want this to go cols and I note this is being read on other forums. Is anyone else having trouble
a. getting their order at the date sepcified
b. getting the specification they ordered or being asked to take a different specification
c. Which dealers?
I understand they do have more cars arrivng in August and Deserthucker you may be spot on. I wont take a car that doesnt exactly match my criteria. Maybe I should get a Rubicon Wrangler instead...

Re: WK2 DownUnder

There's a BIG difference between a Wrangler and a Grand Cherokee. Completely different type's of vehicles. That's why i'll have both when the GC gets here. One for OFF road and one for ON

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Update on the Saddle trim change, was rejected today.
But the rep sent an email with a picture and wants us to reply to it confirming we want saddle.
We done this, he said it could take another couple of tries to get it approved.

WJ 2.7l crd sh!t it's self today.
Left me stranded out bush.
O rings on low pressure fuel pump not sealing bleeding back to the tank.
Had to jerry rig a primer to the filter to get it started then reconnect the fuel tank.
Lucky to have the second battery flattened the first trying to prime it.
Most likely will not start in the morning. Lucky the O ring shop is 5 minute walk away.
Want this new one ASAP.
