Its strange coz I got the call last Friday but nothing this week to confirm or cancel... wonder if something has disrupted the planned August delivery... what a farce.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

It makes you wonder how a company like Jeep can continue to leave us in the dark over a $50k+ purchase. Makes them look like very disorganised

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I really don't understand what could be so hard. They are made OS so Jeep Australia would have at least 6 weeks notice that some more are on the way? The dealer avoids contact at all costs, and tried to slug me extra because of their lies/incompetence. This is my first Jeep and it is hard to imagine ever buying another!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hey guys,
Well my jeep dealer gave me my VIN, confirmed car was built and waiting in holding lot today in Detroit. Mine is a 70th anniversary edition and I was told they were doing a run of these through may-June then going back to standard production after this.

I know it's prob still another 2 months off delivery but damn I'm excited to know it's on the way!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

spoke to my dealer, apparently he has no updates on availability etc. He has put New Saddle in as a colour choice as well as Blackberry as a Exterior colour choice, but we'll just have to wait and see. he did mention there is no chance the car will have the black wood though.

Also apparently he has provided my details to Jeep/Chrysler for them to notify me of updates and send a few goodies (no source for this, just dealer).

Have no idea what its gonna be, but whatever, just want my car lawl

tbh I haven't been waiting that long, ordered may, est delivery is early aug.

I'm all for freebies tho :P

BTW, saw a JGC Bright Silver one driving in Canberra while I was at a restaurant. my friends were all like wtf, when I jumped up from the table and was staring out the window at a JGC. I was just like awww, I want my car lawl.

On a funny note, I told my friend I was buying a Jeep Grand Cherokee, and he's like WHAT? Cherokee Indian? cacked up laughing haha

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Has anyone looked at the Jeep extended warranties ?
I would like to know the street price for an additional 2 years, as I plan to keep this one for 5 years.
I do not want a dealer warranty, only a factory one.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just had a great chat with my dealer and he has confirmed that the CRD will be launched in mid July. He also confirmed that the saddle interior will NOT be available and that it was a mistake by Jeep to say it was. He has and email that confirms that black interior is the only choice we have. In the overland there is also no choice on the interior, the cherry wood and black leather is it.
He also agrees that Jeep are not building our cars to order. Each dealer will receive an allocation and you get what they have. I am sure that Jeep will try to match orders with cars, but this may explain why we are not getting our VOR/VIN until the car is on the boat/in the dealers. I suggest that anyone with a car on order keep in contact with your dealer and ensure that you are top of their list when it comes to allocation. Another source told me that the allocation will remain for the rest of this year. Jeep Au also appear to have underestimated the demand for this car and have been caught short in the supply department.
If anyone is looking at a 70th anniversary model, give Josh at SVM Jeep Mosman a call as he has some ready to deliver.
