Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Hello all

I came across this youtube video about the Jeep active drive system on another thread - it's the best explanation of the system that I have seen so far

After 4 days all 252 KL Cherokees have now been cleared from the Appleton Dock wharf (Port of Melbourne). They have been transported to PrixCars in Altona North and are going through Customs etc.

Based on what I've learnt here at JeepGarage, there are approximately 10-15 working days from Port to Delivery. Therefore I'm tipping these collection dates from the Dealer, give or take a day or two:

Mon 8 Dec (earliest date, but not likely, especially if "extras" need to be fitted),
Mon 15 Dec (Highly likely) , or
Mon 22 Dec (absolute latest date).

It has been just brilliant - it is by far and away the best car I have ever owned (and I've had a few). Thanks

Hi Julian,
It might be a long shot, check this boat "Parsifal" which is also a car carrier from WW and is due on the 29/11/2014 in Port Kembla good luck.

My jeep is still at carprix waiting a call form my dealer

That's great news Matt; thankyou

FYI - We've bought quite a few (new) cars in this segment, and we really wanted to love the latest Honda CR-V. But after driving nearly all of the contenders in the medium SUV category it was plain to see that the Jeep KL Cherokee clearly outshone the others, in every area. I thought the highest selling Mazda CX5 was loud (petrol) with cheap looking interior (my opinion).

Anyhow, the new KL Cherokee appears to be a brilliant vehicle; now if only the Jeep Dealers could get their sh!t together......

Hi Julian, now that I know where our KL is at, I thought that I'd jump on your "support bandwagon" to take the ride with you for the delivery of your beloved KL.

You've been a great contributor to JeepGarage and you have been waiting a loooong time, and I, and I'm sure others, will follow your KL delivery with plenty of support and interest.

Anyhoo, as you're aware your KL is still at Ramp Comparison at Curtis Bay (USA). You have an anticipated Delivery Date of 28 Dec. But when you factor in the inevitable and anticipated processing routine, I'm tipping that you'll sit into your KL during week 3 or 4 of January sometime. Remember that it will be a 4 weeks ship cruise from the USA to OZ; but you probably know that.

I really hope that you can open the door to your KL earlier, but......

I think that the wait will be worthwhile. We're with you mate

Hey joezep, if you don't mind me asking, what Dealer?

I went through a relatively new Jeep Dealer; "Bayford Jeep" in Hawthorn. Not the closest Dealership to my home, but I've had previous dealings with "that one" closest to home, and decided to travel somewhere else (Hawthorn) for better customer service.

Here's hoping that Bayford Jeep can deliver with the after sales service. So far, so good

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

I think Julian's TH will be loaded on a vessel in the next day or two. Milous has an estimated arrival date of the 28th. Taking into account an average 30 day scenic voyage on the high seas then that vehicle has to be loaded within the next 48-72 hours.

I'm not stalking I promise (but I do check on its status at least twice a day) .

Drinks on us when it finally does arrive Julian.

Drinks all round SJandL, you coming down from New South to join in?

Jeep Reunion (somewhere) sounds good I love a Road Trip

PS: Not trying to be cheeky, but you must be the "J" in SJandL. Is it Julie, Jenny, Jaquie ????

Just mucking around, .....no stalking or weirdness intended
