Loving this forum guys. Ordered a stone white Laredo CRD with QL a week before Christmas. Dealer didn't give any estimated timeframe, but am happy to wait a bit. Anyone else order one around the same time and have any info?

Welcome to the forum. It seems this is your first Jeep, as it is for a lot of us. Congrats you won't be disappointed.

Like mine I imagine it needs to be built to order. I ordered 30 August and it was delivered 17 December. Once your order is processed your dealer will receive a com number which is a 9? Digit number starting with an E.(they should have it by now) If you sign up as a level three supporter you can receive daily updates as to the progress of the build and delivery status. This info is better than the dealer can give you. Also check out the pages of this thread around the late 60's and 70's for comments about how to track your vehicle once it is on the ship. sign up as a level 4 or lifetime supporter and you can get a build sheet which is a 3 page PDF document specifically about the car.

Good luck this thread is a good read if you have a couple of hours!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

This is a message I have left of Jeep Australia Facebook site:

"We just picked up our Stone White JGC Laredo CRD yesterday and what a fantastic car.

Only bad experience was I was presented with about 10 photocopy pages that represented the manual, Australian warranty, and Media Centre.

I think this is totally unacceptable and surely this could be rectified, the car has been sold in Australia for over 12 months.

Thank goodness the experience of the getting and driving the car (although quarantined for 4 weeks) has dampened the bad taste in my mouth."

I agree with you ZZ - pretty slack performance from someone in the supply chain within Chrysler, and again doesn't represent the brand well. The more the message gets spread around the better.
The same nil supply of manuals was reported on the Aus Caravaners forum recently.
I guess you already have the .pdf copy of the Aus WK2 manual from the WK2Jeeps.com site http://www.wk2jeeps.com/manuals/2011..._Australia.pdf

Hope the new vehicle meets with all your expectations - was it 2012 complied?

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Yeh the non printed manual is a bit gay
The dealer gave me a manual for the previous version jeep, like the 09-10 model which is a bit better, and gave me all the photocopies. He said they ordered 3 or 4 manuals from Jeep but dont actually expect to get them.

There are PDF versions of all the manuals available

Yes have that. Would have thought they could have at least printed that out. Yes compliance plated 1/12.

Btw is every bodies plastic surrounding the roof rails somewhat loose.

Loving the car but....

Like Mendo said, get the "Order number" from the dealer. They should have it by now. It starts with "E".
Once you have that, you can become a forum sponsor, and track the car. It is beneficial to get the Build sheet from the forum as well. In my case, I ordered mid December, got the order number 7th January, found they built the car on 6th Jan, and when looked at the build sheet, found they put the wrong colour upholstery in. Now gone back to the beginning of the queue awaiting a new Order number.
Without the build sheet, no one would have realised the error until it turned up at the dealership.

Got the news that mine turned up at the dealer today too. Major issue though. Cannot get rid of the old car! Either Jan is a terrible time for the used market or everyone wants a brand new X1 and not a slightly used one. Ill do you a great deal

Almost ironic... put my 2007 JGC up for sale early because I was worried it will take some time. Sold it within 5 days and now already without a car for a month and looking at another 2+ car-less months
I don't suppose you need someone to "exercise" your X1 until you sell it?
