Re: WK2 DownUnder

Good idea!
I personally haven't ordered one, it seems nuts but I'm tossing up between a 5.7 or diesel Overland, or an SRT, or only God knows! Lol

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Well my Mineral Grey Overland CRD was ordered on Friday 13th May, with an ETA of mid to end July.
There are several Overland Hemi in stock, try Mosman Jeep as they had a black one sitting on the floor, ask for Josh. The order I signed was for Hemi pricing, but they said the CRD may be a $3500 premium on the Hemi, which mak kill the deal as that is a total ripoff.
I was also told the SRT will not be seen here this year if at all as apparently they will not be making it in right hook.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Thanks Marlin for getting the sticky done.
Hope we can get a collaborated effort here since the dealers all have their own ideas.
Enough responses may give Milous something to work with.
Better if someone has a VIN.

If it's going to be your daily vehicle and assuming your gas prices are high as ours, I would jump at the diesel. Hopefully we will have that option with MY2013 in Canada.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

First post, I so wanted it to be showing off my new ride.

Ordered a laredo back in March. Delivery was supposed to be last Friday. It never turned up due to an "ordering mishap"

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Ordered a Laredo 3.6 with Quadralift on 6th February. ETA was late April to early May. Now the dealer cannot give any ETA at all.
Different people from the dealership and a NSW Jeep manager has promised to give me more information over the last two weeks but so far I haven't got any.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I'd LOVE for Milous to chime in here if he can..... there seems to be much confusion as to the Overlands... with reports of none coming, some coming, some coming but not to full spec (lacking collision avoidance etc).

Jeep Oz has confirmed the SRT8 for availability mid 2012. Under 90k, it better be HEAPS under 90k IMO, any more than 80 is profiteering I reckon (compared to an Overland).

Re: WK2 DownUnder

You can bet that the SRT will be mid $90k's, as the Overland is $76k.
If you are getting nowhere with your dealer, call up Jeep Australia and find out from them, as it is unacceptable for them to not give you information about a delivery that is now over a month late. I know that the Jap sunami has stopped production of several colours, but there is still a supply of them. There is also a MUA wharf strike that is delaying many cars that are waiting on ships.
My dealer was certain that the next boat is expected early June and this will have the first Diesels here. He also said there was going to be a lot of cars on this boat for the orders that have been placed for the past few months.
As I mentioend in another thread, my dealer was delivering 3 Overlands on Friday, but they were all March 2011 builds.
Make sure you tell dealers that you have access to a forum of other owners/purchasers of Jeep products and you can smell BS. The truth hurts sometimes, but the lies can be found out very quickly. I would rather know the truth than to lose faith in my dealer because he lied.
