Re: hello from W.A

Hi Shertim,

I came accross your posts regarding the GC 2014. Congrats on your purchase!
I am also from Perth and considering buying the Limited 2014 at Wangara. I never owned a Jeep before and I am a bit concerned about the negative reviews of Jeeps service and reliability. Would you mind sharing your opinion? HAve you had any issues with your vehicle? I keep hearing of issues with Voice recognition, Uconnect and engine lights going off etc.
I really dont want to have a nice looking brand new car that spends most of the time in service, which seems like a case for some owners.
I would be most grateful for your thoughts.
Thanks

Hi Just Me
I got my jeep from wangara, they are really good so far, I am waiting for the flash for my temperature control and there is a problem with the voice recognition that they are trying to address, but the car is such a great ride that they are just minor niggles that will be sorted eventually, my jeep is at present in cruisinon getting roo bar, long range tank, UHF, tow bar and second battery fitted, so I am looking forward to getting her back in the next couple of days, then I will look at changing the tyres as the stock kumho are not the best. The power and economy of the diesel is just awesome and it is great to drive, there a some negative stories on here but then people tend to complain more than compliment, there are some issues but read around and you will find a lot are minor things that are being sorted.

Thanks Shertim!
Yes, well I had that feeling that many people are complaining about minor things. On the other hand some do point out important issues that should not occur in new cars. I hired a Pajero recently which is a good reliable 4wd, but seems quiet sluggish and the interior of the GC is much nicer. Looking forward to testing out the GC next week and comparing with Pajero.
Appreciate your input! Thank you!

Re: hello from W.A

Hi Just me
So far so good, car goes back for the flash to fix the climate control tomorrow, the additions are great the long range tank just keeps going and going, the auxilliary battery is excellent with the engel and nicely positioned out of sight
I have had it off road at the farm during the wet and the stock tyres slicked up straight away, but having said that she still went well considering the mud and was just point and push through the sand, will try and post pics, not sure how they will come out
