[Quote]Why do you need anything from Jeep? You have a phone number just put it in your phone and call them if you need to .They have all your details registered when the car is sold[Quote]

So I rang Jeep Assist direct and surprise surprise they had the wrong rego against my VIN. The had the rego for my old MY12 as expired for roadside assist, even though my personalized plates were transferred by the dealer onto the new car.

So someone at the dealer stuffed up with the notification to Jeep Assist on sale.

All very well to say I don't need anything from Jeep. But my wife could have been broken down in the sticks, arguing with some muppet telling her the car was not in their system.

Don't assume anything with FCA.....

I think a previous recommendation came from SJandL, here's another one for Bill at Touch Up Guys Narellan who did an awesome repair job on my car last week.

Had a decent dent and gouge on the rear quarter panel where the bumper and wheel arch meet (a real bitch of a spot), now absolutely perfect!

I've just renewed today Andrew. Our WK2 comes out of warranty on the 19th. I received the letter a few weeks ago. It came down to a choice between renewal of NRMA (and adding the Jeep) or Jeep Assist.

We've had NRMA previously because of our old Holden Caprice that sits in our driveway but this year we have allowed the rego and insurance to expire on it (because it never gets driven and we are unsure what we are going to do with the old girl).

NRMA was $179. Jeep Assist is $143.

We went with JA for the WK2 and will ignore the Caprice for the meantime. In the 3 years of owning the WK2 we have never used Jeep Assist so it's more of a case of Murphy's Law. ie: If we don't have it, odds on we'll need it and a $143 is neither here nor there and cheaper than NRMA (NSW).

Re: WK2 DownUnder

NRMA and their sister organisations in other states, have a network of service centres and agents. Jeep have just their dealers. Frankly I rather have an NRMA guy come out and get me moving than a Jeep dealer. I have greater faith in the quality of NRMA and I'm sure they will be cheaper in the long rum.

Jeep aren't the service provider... The dealer won't be coming out if you breakdown

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Can you point me to any online comparison between these two, and even any other providers? You've piqued my interest here, as my Jeep comes out of warranty before too long as well.

I was just planning to renew the Jeep Assist due to the low cost, but have never really looked into them nor had to use one (touch wood). We will need to get decent quality roadside cover, as we have some traveling in mind.

I'm living in Perth which may make a difference, not sure.


Cheers, Simon

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hey guys, I know this question has been mentioned in other threads but I'm wondering if anyone has had any success in installing an aftermarket remote start in a MY14 Jeep GC SRT here in Oz? If so, what unit did they use and was it a hard install? Any issues down the track? Thanks in advance 😊

Re: Jeep Roadside Assist

I just rang regarding some of the terms, conditions and limitations... particularly on the towing provisions. Especially when out of Allianz' area, the $2000 maximum allowance can not be converted to kays... as it depends on the rate the subcontractor charges. They put forward $3/km as a guide, but I reckon that would be a bit skinny as you get "out there". Also 50km of trailer towing, where available, is close to useless. Servos are further apart than that.

Read the T&C's and be sure that it suits your purpose.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: WK2 DownUnder

How many small country towns are going to have an Allianz depot?

I'll stick with Nrma thanks.

Plus my dad would not talk to me again - he is a life member.
