Re: WK2 DownUnder

Weird how we are being told 2 different stories about the Saddle.
I am glad you managed to get Saddle as it will be a rare vehicle.

Also who did you speak to in order to confirm this?? I really want the Saddle, and it would be great if there was someone else (other than the dealer who said he'll try for the saddle) that could confirm/push for it.
Mid September hopefully.
Strait into Fremantle.
All Confirmed by our Chrysler state rep. He new the change request went through on Monday but waited until it showed on his system last night before telling me.

I'm glad too
It is the first confirmed saddle for Australia.
A letter should be going out to the dealers today.
I know the WA rep has emailed his dealers in WA. But it is up to the state reps to inform their own dealers.

Going through the rep is a one off, a learning experience for all.
Now one is done it should be easier for all the dealers to do now.

But I want a unique GC so you all cant have it. (saddle).

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I would think that you will have a 2012 model, which is a Good thing. I hope I get the same.

I think Chrysler underestimate how popular the saddle may become in Oz.
As with a lot of other things.
They could possibly sell more LTD's if ACC was offered and no QL was offered.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I would say thay they have built the first allocation as they will have them here mid July for the launch. I do not know if mine is going to be one of them....I can only hope, as I have not received my VOR yet.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Just got off the phone with dealer,

I was supposed to drop my car off with them today (as its a trade in), and they were going to put me into a rental while I waited for the JGC,

Apparently they don't mind me keeping the car for a little while longer, because the JGC is apparently "not far off" (quoting the dealer).

I asked about the Saddle trim again, and the dealer paused, and then was like looks like the first few shipments won't have the tan leather, (saddle), it will most probably be black.

Considering I'm looking at getting a White Gold model, the black shouldn't be a problem, will provide a nice contrast and won't get dirty easily.

Either way, I'd rather have my new car, than have to wait for an interior colour. Apparently the Blackberry is still a possibility (not so sure about that), but yeah, the dealer will have a Factory order number for me next week. Does that mean I can track its progress etc? I'm not too fussed

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Have you actually seen one in white gold?

I've spoken to my dealer on numerous occasions, and a few guys at the same place have all said that white gold is unsaleable on all the other Chrysler vehicles, that they've made the mistake of ordering them for "stock", and now they won't shift, and they won't order it again unless to order.....

Just wanting to make sure you've seen it in person mate. It looks nothing like the brochure depicts.

hmm, my first preference is still blackberry, I do feel Dark Charcoal is nice but not great with black interior (with Saddle, it'd be awesome)

I haven't actually seen it in person on a JGC, I did see the swatch at the dealer (piece of metal with the paint on it), and it looked great, I personally like the colour, I think it looks great like this member's one (ArmyRXP)
