Is it still possible for FCA to do that before giving delivery. Creta, for instance still doesn't give 6 airbags to automatic variants even after 2+ years of launch.

Just spoke to my friend working in jeep showroom in south Tamilnadu.
They have 60+ bookings already.
The bookings from hill / estate areas are all for 2 wheel drives. He said all the estate guys who book 4x4 prefer manual transmission.
He has asked me to wait till Renegade comes next March as I need a 4x4 on a lesser budget.

My guess is that Renegade's main competition will be from the Next-Gen Mahindra Thar, which is expected to be launched around the same time.

If FCA follow the same pricing formula used in the case of the Compass, M&M will really have a fight on it's hands. Anyway, the consumer will be the beneficiary.

Please suggest guys. I am told by Landmark jeep Delhi(Mathura Road) that the 25k accessories and first year insurance are compulsory.
As I am applying via company lease, insurance is managed by my organization only. The sales guy is not even bothering and being firm on this, even though I mentioned this as show stopper for my purchase. Most of the accessories are pretty use less for me.
Looks like these guys have took the exceptional response on their head, not even keen on responding. Really frustrating dealership experience with such a wonderful car, its been more than a month I booked top spec 4*4 Diesel Limited(O)).

Is not just about money, but the attitude and playing with customer sentiments. I will be going ahead with Fortuner if this is not resolved.

Completely agree with you - dont give in to the dealership.
However I would try the following

1. Call the tollfree and ask for somebody to call you back for problem resolution.
2. Post the same on their facebook page if there is no response.
3. I could not find any email id on the website to write directly to FCA - so if you know any ids - write directly.

BUT THE ONE WHICH CAN GIVE A RESULT and can be done asap

is call up the Bombay office at Tel: +91 022 39462600 or if you know the Delhi office number -

Ask to speak to the regional sales head north - ask for the mobile number - and ask him to resolve this.

I had done this during my 3rd purchase - had issues with the local dealers and needed intervention.

I think his name might be Abhay Kudeshia = abhay.kudeshia@fcagroup.com

you can try writing to this mail id and ask him to call you back / write to you or call up FCA office and ask if this person still work at FCA and ask for his number.

This is pathetic, please inform Jeep India and the FCA directly on this. Do not give in to such tactics of the dealer.
Finally FCA/Jeep has a good car on their hands and they will ruin the chances of making an impact in the market by such unscrupulous tactics of their dealers.

Jeep India has to come down heavily on such dealers to ensure goodwill and faith among the buyers.

The success and pricing of Compass has gone to the heads of the dealers in Bangalore as well. No calls or follow up from KHT even after repeated attempts to get a test drive or further information.

Brings back the memory of mine when i bought XUV 500 way back in 2011. Faced same issue that you cant buy insurance from outside. Stood my ground. Tweeted Anand Mahindra, mailed whatever email ID's I could find for the top guys. Result, within few days dealer himself called me back and begged me to take the car

So hold your ground. Mail top guys, tweet and post on FB.

Diesel: 6 airbags. 4x4 for that leh trip with friends (though only in theory). Powerful engine. Within the month delivery.

We will be keeping a driver for the weekdays and running is under 1k per month. Can't wait for diesel automatic as need delivery at the earliest.

Inputs please
Congratulations on your booking sir.

Since you've already booked a Compass Automatic, I assume that you might've test driven the 1.4 ltr Turbo-Petrol Automatic variant. Your insights on the experience will be of immense help for me to zero on a Compass as I haven't found any reviews of the automatic compass.

Secondly agree with all the bhpians that Jeep has been stingy on offering us the option of 6-Airbags on all the high-end trims. It is sheer stupidity on FCA's part on not offering extra airbags on other high-end counterparts. Customers paying 20+ lacs OTR for the high-end variants are seriously pissed off because of this omission. Hope FCA realizes this at the earliest and do the needful.

Hi Guys,

Did anyone had any encounter with Compass Petrol model?

Looks like dealers are having only Diesel models for test drive.

One of my friend is interested (very positive) in buying a compass, it will be mainly for city rides. His monthly running will be less, hence I suggested for the petrol model. 160 BHP power with 250 nm of torque, not bad at all for a petrol car. However Kolkata dealer does not have any petrol model for test drive. Booked a test drive on Monday with diesel, and I will be his test driver .

Any experience / thoughts will be highly appreciated.


Cheers
Sail

There is a sea change in dealer attitude. All the pre-price announcement courtesies are gone. Visited WSL Automobiles Private Limited, Mohali, Chandigarh, today. Was not attended by anyone for 20 minutes, despite it not being crowded. Giggling executives saying sweet nothings to each other behind the counters but none interested in greeting or making a sale. Reminiscent of my Ford visit in their hay days. Had to leave in a huff.
