Re: WK2 DownUnder

Sounds like my experience will match yours.
I managed to get my car built a lot earlier than expected. It left the assembly line on 6th Jan, and I managed to get a build sheet this morning.
I was somewhat surprised to find that my Light Beige upholstery was coded as BLACK.
Spoke to the dealer today, who confirmed the Order clerk at the dealership stuffed up.
Since the car is in the Jefferson holding yard, I doubt if they would pull it back to replace the upholstery. Most likely I will go back to the start and have to await a new build.
You would think that someone would check the orders prior to submitting. Wife is certainly not too pleased.

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
GREAT NEWS I have a positive result at last. We will be getting a brand new Overland CRD in Stone White, identical to our current one and will have the 3M stone protection, company signage, caravan power feed to anderson pug, tow bar and brake controller fitted. Delivery is quoted as mid February, and we will have the use of the company demonstrator "Laredo" until the replacement arrives. It has taken some time and considerable anguish, but the positive result arrived just before legal representation got involved and the relationship went completely pear shaped.
Hopefully I may now sleep a little better

Cheers Chris

Re: WK2 DownUnder

That is good news. Feb delivery must mean the car is already on the high seas.

Great news Chris......and certainly it will be a load off your mind. Hopefully your dealer will also take a lesson and get his people a bit better up to speed.
Excellent outcome and a shame it has taken so long.
The very best of luck.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

looks great Frog, blue isn't a colour that is round all that much and will be easier to look after than black I reckon.
Get off now and play
I'm jealous...
