Re: WK2 DownUnder

You have got you wonder why we buy Jeeps?
After waiting 5 months for my Grand Laredo it was delivered without the reversing camera. The camera apparently is installed at the 1000k service WHY?
Fair enough I say and drive around in my new Jeep and when it gets 900k I ring the dealer service centre to book in and have the camera fitted along with the 1000k service.
Would you believe the cameras are on back order! according to the very pleasant young lady on the phone Jeep only supply limited cameras to the dealers due to the heavy demand.
I pointed out to her that I had waited 5 months for my vehicle why did they not order in a camera along with the other accessories I ordered on my vehicle.
She replied rather tersely that due to to demand they could not put aside cameras for future deliveries.
So the now have to wait another 3 weeks for for the camera to be fitted a total of 5 weeks since delivery.
Just to add to this saga I ordered front and rear splash guards{mud flaps} guess what the rear were fitted but the front are on back order from USA with no delivery date! Haven't they heard of ebay.
I do have to say this is one nice car to drive I am so impressed with it.
Now if JEEP could match their product with customer service it would be an ideal package.

So you can't reject delivery of the car when the camera quality lets you down.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Fair assessment of the situation IBAJ.

Hey has anyone here seen an Aussie delivery "Indigo Blue" Overland interior? Is the centre stack / gear selector surround silver as in this US picture... or is it the gold hue as per the typical AU Overland???

Cheers,
Steve

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I bought an Overland with Indigo blue interior specifically because of the silver trim, the gold is hideous in my opinion. I am still waiting on delivery but the build sheet clearly states it has silver trim.

I forgot to mention I have seen an indigo blue interior in Australia and the trim was silver.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Check out this Grand Cherokee ad and all the equipment they reckon it comes with for $81k. I think I'll get it with the 16" wheels. What a bunch of tossers. I'm not sure if I'm surprised or not, but the dealer is John Hughes, who routinely earbashes us on the TV regarding his fabulous ethics.

Not today Hughesy...

Tossers would be an under statement!
After the misfortune of dealing with John Hughes I would have to say that it was the worst buying experience of my life and putting up with blatant lies was a experience I would not wish on my worst enemy!
We expect the dealers to stretch the truth because
1. They will say/do anything to make the sale
2. Because a lot of them don't know any bloody better

5 weeks after taking delivery and still waiting for the car to be fixed

Re: WK2 DownUnder

That's a disgrace Mark. Could you remind me what the problem is with your new car? I recall you having issue, but I'm not sure what it was.

Light globe illuminates... wasn't it a BCM fault or something like that?

Cheers,
Steve

Go in a circle. Acceleration is the rate of change in velocity over time. While the velocity will change as direction does, speeds change is positional, not directional.
