Re: WK2 DownUnder

Well, I called Prix Car yesterday, spoke to the lady on the phone and gave her my VIN no. and E. no and she said she can't give information as I'm not working for the dealer and I'm considered 'third party'.

Called the dealership today and they said they'll need to call Chrysler to find out about status. Apparently it is still stuck at Prix Car since it landed in Fremantle ports on the first of this month, but it is on their "priority list", which I assume is wank talk for you'll just have to wait.

So it begs another question, how long does it take for the dealership to receive the car to actually handing it over to client?

At this rate, I won't get my vehicle till February...

Any feedback appreciated.

Cheers

For me it was 5 days, but I guess if you are a priority it could be quicker. Apparently they do a diag check and clean it, process the rego and hand it over.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Does the "priority" relate to getting your vehicle to you, or their priority for dicking you around? You have to wonder sometimes...

I got my second Grand through dealer PD in three days. I owe them big time for looking after me. I'd suggest 5 business days is more the norm, but it's ultimately whatever you can encourage them to do for you.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

It was doable for us in 2-3 days, from memory. They don't have to do much, it just depends on their existing workload.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Thank you for everyone's input - I've gotten a call from the dealer saying they got the all clear and will have the vehicle by Tuesday, delivery Thursday.

I have to say, this is by far the longest wait I've had for a new vehicle delivery. Max for me in the past is 2 months...what a tiresome 7 months wait it has been.

Regards

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Well you beat me, I thought 5 months and a week was a record!

Re: WK2 DownUnder

My "pov pack" was off the showroom floor, didn't even test drive it. they had another one for that. I gave them the go on the Monday moring and picked it up next afternoon. They still had to do updates, check it over but then had to wait and take it back for camera and weather shields.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I bought the poverty pack too, and if I wanted white or that blue/grey colour, I could have strolled down the back of the sales yard with a set of keys just after putting a deposit down. They all needed cleanup though.
I preferred a grey one so they had to go search.

I think it took 8 whole days including finding it, transporting, bolting & wiring the tow package, sticking the tint and plates on and ticking all the boxes. - oh and cut the hole in the tailgate and stick that sh*tty camera in.

At least i didn't have to wait over 6 months for the car and then ANOTHER 6 months to only then have the sh*tty camera hacked in. Those guys were fuming.


Anyway registered my displeasure with the dealer when i picked it up as i had previously mentioned the proper "Parkview" camera should be installed - see the f*k'n brochure.
They did a neat enough job sticking it in at least its fairly straight.

If I could find a better spec CCD one with the same form factor and same wiring i'd swap it over myself.

Glad you're happy with the camera but please don't lift the carpet to check the wiring, it might ruin your day as it did me.
