Maybe RR can give them a quick lesson on how to treat their customers when they come in for service, loaner cars could be the first step. Just sayin.....there's more to having a premium brand than a premium price.

Re: Jeep confirms 100k+ range rover rival

Some dealers are good about it. You pay a bit of a premium for the extra service, but it is nothing compared to the premium you pay for land rover service visits. Anyway Jeep Dealer in South Hampton NY always gives me a loaner car even if it is just a routine Oil Change/Tire Rotation. Never had any issues. Although I do feel all of your pain other dealers I have used in the past were terrible.

Re: Jeep confirms 100k+ range rover rival

Loaners are up to the dealer and due to the high cost of insurance, many dealers don't have their own fleet. Instead, they have a local car rental company handle that.
I do agree that customers with an SRT should have their own service writer that they can contact directly and maybe some kind of perk that makes the owners feel appreciated or valued.
Not that customers in general shouldn't feel valued, but the SRTs are priced and positioned at the top of the line and should get some extra perks at the dealer.

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Re: Jeep confirms 100k+ range rover rival

bingo... the first comment said it all...that 100,000 price tag means a whole lot more than just the car. my mom a few years back had a range rover supercharged sport... when she brought it in there for service so got good treatment... not to mention a range rover rental.... not a piece of crap toyota camry (no offense). that is the biggest problem right now with Chrysler is that they show no loyalty to SRT owners... we spend the most money on any of their cars and we get treated just like someone who bought a base level charger or whatever.... cant just put a 100k pricetag on a car... they need to do alot more to the brand before that ever happens.

So true. The brand is missing a huge opportunity to strengthen loyalty and satisfaction with its existing customer base - particularly SRT owners. Wake up Chrysler - the jeep brand experience starts - not ends - at the sales desk.

Maybe with the 100k sticker they will put in a transmission without the "clunks"/defects in up shifting/downshifting. That could be good.

Re: Jeep confirms 100k+ range rover rival

I have a premium warranty with free rentals. Yes - it is Hertz and I typically get a Chrysler 200 - but I don't worry that much. Here at my dealership they try their best to make me feel special. Always the same person - she knows me and takes very good care of me. At Mercedes the waiting room is nicer but besides a Merc curtesy car I am not treated any different. At VW I have also the top of the line car and the recently remodeled all their dealerships to have a more upscale look - but again - treatment is no different than at Merc or Jeep. Which is to say they are always friendly and helpful. They thank me for the box of doughnuts too - hint 😉👍

Re: Jeep confirms 100k+ range rover rival

The new 100k version will be the supercharged version.....................and out of the reach for most of us in the future 100kUS is about 124500k Australian in today's money + stamp duty $3735 + luxury car tax $7000? or more $135000 Australian and that's just guessing the Luxury car tax..

Has anyone confirmed if this comes with a suitcase containing $20,000?

Re: Jeep confirms 100k+ range rover rival

From what I gather, this will not be the performance model. It will be an all around luxury model. If jeep has a lick of sense they will give us an SC GC next gen for $80k well equipped. I'll hold true to my word if Jeep does something stupid like trying to charge $100k for the new art replacement, I will jump ship. Jeep has not earned the right to charge that. Either next gen cayenne turbo for me or I'll just get a truck and a Viper.

How will you know you bought a Jeep?
