I don't suppose you need someone to "exercise" your X1 until you sell it?
Exercise... no prob as long as you pay the lease ;-)

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Got to be better than a pushbike.
I just had a google search on "Jeep Java Yard"and saw many instances where Jeeps were stored there for 3 weeks. I am just guessing, but assume that there are no spaces on the ship that left Curtis Bay yesterday, so the car will be stored until the next available ship.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Yes, all indications are Java Yard = long delay
Not happy but not much I can do. Would think if we pay premium prices they would have premium service. Is there an award for longest wait? I'm on track to qualify for that

Put the wife's commodore up for sale just after signing thinking we had a 2 month wait as the dealer told us, sold it in one week. Waited for the new jeep 7 months.

Haha, mine was 7 months and 25 days, hope you don't have to compete with that :P

Up to 5+ months now. That will be a tight race but I'm confident I can beat you and reach 8 months

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Adding insult to injury...

Just received this email:

"Just a short e-mail pleased to announce that we have a stone white MY12 Grand Cherokee Overland 3.0L V6 CRD due to arrive soon at our Dealership.
I would much appreciate if you could please contact me to discuss in further detail at your convenience."

If anyone wants an Overland without waiting, Sainsbury in Dubbo is the place to go.

Probably a cancelled order, or their version of "soon to arrive" can mean anything between 6-12 mths.
Also, based on your current situation with the car being "lost in the Java Yard", I think you are unfortunately in line for the Longest Wait Award.
That is until my order gets rebuilt.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Unfortunately white is my very last choice of colour otherwise I might see what they have to offer. But then I also have the ORA package and other stuff from the dealer so cannot switch easily.

Allypally, I'm sure you will be on your 3rd build until I get mine

Re: WK2 DownUnder

White is nice, I just don't like white cars
Very subjective I know but imagine how boring the world would be if everyone would prefer the same colour, shape and model

Having said that, I'm getting to the stage where a rainbow coloured GC would be perfectly acceptable...
