Travelling Australia
1 Attachment(s)
Doing the lap around Australia towing a 22 ft van with a 2012 Diesel JGC, fuel figures started off good at 14 lts per klm but after consistant head on winds jumped up to 18.6 kpl got caught on the sunsine coast with Ex tropical cyclone Oswald this wasn't made any better with the JGC breaking down on the highway, problem was fixed by Garry Crick's jeep dealership in Noosa great service provided also Jeep Assist was extremely helpful in getting us towed and a hire car and accomodation whilst our jeep was off the road. Problem with the jeep turned out to be a fuel line had come away in the tank and was only drawing fuel from one side. The JGC will be due for a 10,000 service around Victoria can anyone suggest a good jeep dealership to do this service.Attachment 19269:thumbsup:

We got our JGC from City Jeep in Melbourne, haven't done enough kms for a service yet, but that is where it will be going back to. Very happy with the sales side of the dealership, yet to find out about servicing.

Since you are travelling City Jeep might be a good option as there is a tram stop about 3 min walk away from the dealership, so you can drop it in in the morning and then explore the city before picking it up in the afternoon.

During my shopping for a vehicle I wasn't too impressed with the service from Northern Motor Group Jeep or the one over Nunawading way, but that was just the sales side of things, don't know about servicing.

Great photo Dasher!
Very disappointing to see your Jeep let you down though.
