Re: Wait time for delivery - Australia

The breakup of the fully maintained package shows the vehicle price as under $80K with Roof/Audio + Towbar.

Re: Wait time for delivery - Australia

I guess it depends how your fixed as far as what transport you have now - if you have good reliable vehicles now i would suggest wait - but if you need to get out of a rattler i wouldn't wait.

I still have an awesome G/C (WJ) Management has great 300c daughter has good car.....friends will always pitch in ect

I ordered mine around 17th Dec i think and....still waiting but happy to do so

Looking at some of those prices!......Err lets just say i did very well! and i am very happy to wait

Re: Wait time for delivery - Australia

A '14 SRT complete with all or most of the options for less than $80K (Drive Away) is insane . Congratulations to those on here that have achieved that.

Maybe the '14 prices are now lower because the '15 is imminent.

Re: Wait time for delivery - Australia

I would say that many of the early owners would not have had much leverage to get a better deal. My deal was for an in stock car, so it would have been no wait.
I think anyone who pays over $82k drive away now for roof/HK is being ripped off or taking a hit for their trade.
Dealers pretend that you have not bargaining power, but you play hard ball and give them your price. I am sure you would get a deal,

I placed an order in Adelaide in January, received a call a fortnight ago, was told the earliest the car would arrive was September. Quick call to my broker and I was driving an SRT back from Melbourne to Adelaide 3 days later. Ridiculous that the dealerships won't speak to each other/transfer cars. Or that Jeep Australia won't give you an eta upon ordering. Good news is, I'm now in my new SRT!!

Why would you give up such a valuable commodity? Any dealer with an SRT in stock is not going to give it up, not even do another dealer in the same group.

When the dealership implies that eta will be 2-3 months, then at the 3 month mark tell you it's still 6 months away. I think they should do what they can to please a customer who has already placed an order and payed a deposit. Just me tho...

Re: Wait time for delivery - Australia

I understand that, what I am saying is that if you have a car that is very rare, so demand is far outstripping demand, why would give this to another dealer, in your case in a different state, and put yourself in the same position? That would be crazy, it gives them the ability to sell a car at full price because they can supply it immediately.
