2012 buyers, New car checklist at the dealer before driving it away
 
My new 2012 CRD Overland is due at the dealers in around a week or two or soon

I've been thinking of a checklist before taking delivery

Can anyone else add anything specific to WK2, CRD, Overland, RHD or 2012 to look out for?


1. Front Tow Hook situation - I will say when I ordered the car, it had the hooks, so I will say that I would be expecting the 2012 new tow hook solution that Chyrsler Jeep Australia has recently come up with to be fitted/available for free

2. Check for scratches or damage, inside, outside and under and check for fluid leaks

3. Check everything works - eg -
Quadralift Suspension
Engine and transmission sound fine
Take it for a test drive

4. Also found these WK2 specific items from other JeepGarage threads
Inspect rear glass for proper alignment and make sure the adhesive on the hinges and shock assemblies has not given way! ....hmm ok!
Check all hood and fender and door lines gaps
Check for a piece of rubber that should not be missing from infront of the air cleaner intake - is that still meant to be there?

5. Jack plate that should go between the Jack and car body jack points?

6. Manual on CD or book?

7. Full tank of fuel - or is this only if the dealer is feeling generous?

8. Floor mats should be standard?

9. Just found this other JGC checklist thread
http://www.jeepgarage.org/f73/new-jeep-inspection-list-21218.html

10. And I'll take a general new car checklist something like this one http://www.consumerreports.org/conte...pickup_car.pdf

There's a lot to check. Can anyone add anything?

Hey Steve

I think yours was in the same shipment as mine. They cleared quarantine last Friday. My dealer reckons I'll have mine next week.

Manual - you wont get on, according to dealers, Jeep dont print them anymore. you will most likely get a few printed pages of the important stuff. PDFs are easy to find on here.
Fuel - Depends on Dealer, i got full tank (Penrith/Nepean Jeep)
Floor Mats - Yeah id hope they are in
Front Hooks - Tricky one, the dealer may have no idea what is going on with this one.

Check they installed reverse camera and it works.
If ordered tow bar, check the hitch and everything are in the car, should be where spare wheel is.

STFU Then :)

I got told Jeep wasnt printing them anymore, the dealer asked for some, but they may never actually arrive. Gave me about 40 photocopied pages and was told to get the PDFs its easier.

I also have the letherette binder with the AU manuals. I think I will ebay them to the highest bidder as they seem to be rare.

Fuel is up to the dealer unless you have it noted in the contract of sale along with any other goodies/discounts.

Floor Mats are standard on the overland. I don't know about the other models, check your build sheet- it should be noted.
