Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

I ordered my Cherry Red Trailhawk on the 21 July, phoned the sales rep on the 4 August and got the VON Vehicle Order Number over the phone. The car is now built, sitting in the rail yard in Toledo for the last couple of days. The VIN was issued after the car was built.
Car due in Brisbane 8th Nov, don't know how long it will take to be delivered after this.

Woohoo! Lucky you!

At least when mine arrives in Port Kembla, it won't have far to go to the dealer (about 3km ).

3 kms will most likely take at least a month travel time

It's got to go to Prix Car first though Two Dogs for Aust compliance and whatever other phaffing about they do before it gets delivered to the dealer. That takes about 10 days odd on average I think.

I think the closest Prix Car from Port Kembla is in Minto. So it will come up from the Port and then be sent back down to the dealer, unless there is a PC closer to where you are.

Edited because it's Minto not Ingleburn. Actually just looking at the Prix Car website and there is one in Port Kembla so that's good for you.

Port Kembla is Australia's largest vehicle import hub, so it would make sense to have one there.

And thanks for the info about the compliance stuff; I didn't know it took that long!

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

It can be shorter but I think the 'average' is about 10 days. Our Grand was at PC for about 8 days from memory.

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Wondering what new secrets my car can give me now, last month I found the mirrors fold out on their own if you drive off with them folded in and that high beam has auto dipping if the car senses enough ambient light (oncoming car etc). Auto wipers work well enough to a point and I found a to b swapping for usb audio ports as the car has 2 ports so therefore can have kids music on one and my music on another...
I must check and see if UConnect supports FLAC audio, I have the idea it does and I think I put a folder on my USB in FLac... I need to check

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Let me know how you go with the flac files - that would be very interesting.


Matt

P.S. On Sunday I drove out to pick up my wife from work and the dreaded "Service Park Brake" warning sounded. I didn't want to muck around and end up seeing my pride and joy skull dragged onto a flatbed again so I drove it straight home and sent Suttons an email telling them I would be there at 7am Monday (Yesterday). Drove down the next day (no warning for the 170km trip) - their service people were very very good and kept me updated with the progress of their work throughout the day. They ended up replacing the park brake switch and told me that if that doesn't work then they are confident that the fault will lie in the wiring harness. They quoted replacing the wiring harness would take them a day - which I thought was pretty good. So far no tell tale warning signs so here's hoping.

If they are the same as the GC sFlattop, then the power-folding mirrors will fold out when you hit 16kmph (if they have been folded prior).

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Wanting to get a Deep Cherry Red TH with Sunroof, Tech & Convenience groups, dealer can't find any and says they can't factory order one for me, but i could wait and maybe one will be shipped to Australia with that spec. Is that right? My impression was you were able to do factory orders.

When I was looking for mine a couple of dealers couldn't locate what I was after and they offered to arrange a "build" as they called it (I needed one fairly quick and did not want to wait) so I am sure they can - put some pressure on and if they want your business then they will help you out or try other dealers - although having said that you are after the top of the line model with all the options bar luxury pack in a popular colour so I would think they would be shipping that and you could take a punt and see and you may end up with one a lot earlier than if you arranged a build.
