Seller Notes: We are about to totally DESTROY our $49,000 2010 Jeep Cherokee Limited, as we refuse to pretend everything is OK and sell this onto someone else, so you are bidding on the wreck! We intend on hitting it with hammers, shooting arrows into it, smashing out headlights, windows and mirrors. Next comes the 34 Tonne Excavators that will have a drill attachment fitted to drill a 2-foot-wide "sunroof" into the top and another large hole in the back to pin down the car, while another excavator fitted with a claw "removes" the engine by tearing it out through the front grill. Next we will cut off the roof, then run OVER my Jeep with an 8 tonne all-terrain vehicle and finally we will play "tug of war" between the excavators and my Jeep, so the car will be torn in two. There will be nothing but a pile of twisted steel and plastic by the time we're done, so don't get your hopes up about driving away with this thing... you will be lucky if you can roll a radio knob away by the time we're done

We are selling THE WRECK of our 

2010 KK Jeep Cherokee Limited


*** Warning, it will look NOTHING like the 

current pictures once I'm done 

(except maybe the burnt-out picture)***


This lovely vehicle tows well (on the back of a tow truck) and has had lots of "timeout" thanks 

to the amount of things that have gone wrong since the day we bought it.


It has the full Freedom pack, so it looks mean, but don’t dare take if off road, cause it will probably leave you stranded.

·        This fine vehicle has very low klms – cause we don’t trust it

·        Has never been off-road – cause we don’t trust it

·        Has never seen sand – cause we don’t trust it

·        Has had 20 defects, 5 of which have rendered it UNDRIVABLE

 

And recently won a “Golden Turd Award” from our friends and family

It has had 20 issues and still has 3 issues outstanding (perhaps I’m lucky?)

I’ve been trying to get this vehicle replaced since it experienced its 9th issue in 2011 (yes that’s over 1043 days ago)

fast forward to 2014 and it has now had 20 issues and has been towed 4 times and pushed once

I have tried to resolve this with the dealer and with Chrysler Australia directly but they both just pointed the finger at each other.

I even got the Office of Fair Trading to step in and mediate, but they got the same response and suggested I take legal action.

I took it to QCAT and tried to resolve this in mediation (I even offered to drop my claim by a whopping $10,000 for settlement on the day!), but Chrysler Australia knew that QCAT can only make rulings of up to $25,000 in Queensland, so they held their ground on a low-ball offer and the hearing was dismissed.

Anyway, back to the purpose of this ad, I am selling the wreck after I finish my "Destroy My Jeep" campaign (see www.destroymyjeep.com) and with a starting bid of only $1 it could still be the WORST investment you ever made!

It will make a great talking piece in a rival car dealers' show room or maybe Chrysler Australia would like to buy it so they can "bury it" as they should have done 3 years ago when I brought this to their attention.

Please note: Your payment to me will be put into the Kickstarter platform where this is listed.

You will not get the wreck till AFTER the event on 4th October 2014

You will get a full refund and a slab of beer if for some reason the Kickstarter campaign is not successful and we don't proceed with the total destruction of my Jeep.


It's had the following issues, since purchased new in July 2010

1.                Fuel line fell off in dealerships driveway outside the showroom (so we couldn't even take it home!)

Over next 14 months (from July 2010 to September 2011) it had 8 more defects. (two more tow trucks)

2.                Rattling in drivers door

3.                Loss of all climate controls (pretty important in QLD weather)

4.                Clock in radio cannot keep the correct time

5.                Bash plate falling off

6.                Turbo Inlet manifold crack (tow truck required)

7.                Intermittent rain sensor

8.                Loose mirrors 

9.                Finally the coolant line broke off behind the dashboard, sending coolant all through the vehicle (tow truck required again)

On 2nd September 2011, while the car was getting the coolant line issue fixed, I called Chrysler Australia Melbourne and formally requested refund  or replacement

For the next 3 years, I have been trying to get them to do the right thing, while still getting issues with my car.

It has since had:                        

10.           Climate control failure (again)

11.           Ignition failure, none of the keys would start the car,  so we needed another tow truck (again)

12.           Faulty Seatbelt tensioner

13.           Another (smaller) coolant leak/smell inside vehicle

14.           Intermittent Starter motor (starter motor replaced)

15.           Intermittent stater motor again (with the new starter motor installed)

16.           Mirrors loose again

17.          Drivetrain control module error, causing the car to go into “limp mode” while driving in the middle of a storm (tow truck again)

18.           Oil leaking from rear right strut

19.           Windscreen wipers coming on when turning corners

20.           Intermittent starter motor issue again

21.           Clock in Radio can't keep the correct time


We’d be happy for you to view our turd-award-winning 4WD in Maroochydore Queensland before we destroy it, but please don’t ask us to start it, as sound of the intermittent starter motor cranking over for 60 seconds may make you want to vomit.


Please note: Your payment to me will go towards the Kickstarter platform where this is listed
