Re: WK2 DownUnder

Jeep US customer service is great, the get back to you very quickly. They did so with ny enquiry about the latest Uconnect update, only to say they had to pass it onto International (read Jeep Aus) who have done nothing. Contacted US again to let them know, they harassed them again, still nothing.

If this all checks out as your order after they confirm the VIN is your order, and you don't want the DCR, I would tell them to get you a Granite in the same timeline. If they can't, call Jeep Aus and explain to them what happened, and you want to know if a Granite Laredo with ORA II coming in.

Or as per our PMs, look at the full extended warranty option as the pay off.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Allianz New Vehicle Extended Warranty Insurance
For my Limited CRD
2 yrs / 50,000km = $2,820 or $2,350 if I did it before that month ended
3 yrs / 75,000km = $3,650 or $2,966.......



This is supposed to fully replicate the original Jeep warranty in every single way.
I read it a little, but as I wasn't going for it, not enough to know if that is exactly true.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Milous said, "everything listed on the build is what goes in at the factory. The reverse camera is not on the build sheet bc the dealer installs that."

Why then is tint listed three times when the dealer said the Laredo does not come from the factory with tint and is done at the dealership.???

Anyone shed some light here?

Yeah looking forward to the GC and the drive with a mate... you know the traditional type road trip Guess we will be in Sydney till the delivery is signed off then get bits and pieces for the GC on the way home, ie: Uneek bull bar with winch roof racks ect.

Probably will not happen as planned because I believe the colour is wrong. What I do from here is undecided at this time.

Cheers
Same dealer I ordered with.
If u need some help next week I am off work and can drop in for u if needed. I was there for an 1hour getting my e number earlier this week.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

You guys are in for a bumpy ride with the tools at Waitara. No surprise at all that they stuffed up an order (been there done that, after 4 mths no E number).

May I suggest you TELL them to check their E report... I bet they will find a Granite in there which is yours, I reckon they have given you the wrong E number, hence the Red car.

Got them to check the E report and VON twice. Two different slaes personnel one of whom is suppose to be the boss. VON confirmed.
VIN vehicle has exactly what was ordered but colour is wrong.

Now I have Jeep Customer Care telling me its still my vehicle and I still have to work with "your dealer" like we have some sort of relationship.

Whats the story with tint on a Laredo? Factory or dealer?

EDIT: Sorry DCRSRT I miss read your post. I take it you have your GC now? Sorry you went through so much crap. 6-7 weeks in and I'm shaking my head. If you have your Jeep, how's it going?

Cheers

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Tint as we know it in Oz is not standard. However, all Jeep vehicles have "privacy" glass, which is glass that is "tinted" at the factory and embedded in the actual glass. It's not a "stick on" tint like you would buy aftermarket. Note that the drivers and passengers front windows are not "tinted" at all and if you want to add tint to match the rears you will need 20% (which is technically illegal).

Are they denying the colour? Id be telling them if they are so sure you are getting the correct colour to give it to you free if it is infact incorrect. You have the vin, and I can assure you Milous is never wrong with the info.

Mate, this is what I thought. So why then is tint listed on the build sheet under
VEHICLE OPTION-ALL
Standard Equipement

GBBS Tinted Windshield Glass
GCBS Front Door Tinted Glass
GEDS Tinted Rear Doors/Qrt/Liftgate Glass


Was quoted for Premium Tint Ambo Blacked out rear with whats legal up front.

Again would the above codes and descriptions possibly be right. Have Jeep shifted the goal posts and decided to tint the laredos at the factory.
