Just wondering if anybody or knows of anybody who won a Jeep in the recent promo.
It would seem harder to win than the lottery!

Cheers

Would have liked to know where that place was.

The place was silverton, near broken hill.
I was entered, but when the countdown finished the phone number didn't come up in the app. There is quite a carry on over on jeeps Facebook page and other media from plenty of miffed entrants. It would seem the 'secret phone number' was leaked, and one of the winners is on line saying he got in 2 minutes before the comp was meant to start. I don't think jeep's marketing department have done themselves any favours with this little buggered up event.

Tamworth local won a Jeep - not sure what the promotion was, but she doesn;t want it and is selling it locally.
Was in the local rag, masquerading as a newspaper, a week or so ago.

Not with an iPhone I didn't! Stupid dodgy Jeep app froze when the countdown hit 0, then when I touched the screen, it brought up a silly compass display of my current location. After power resetting my phone and restarting the Jeep app to get the secret 1300 phone number, 4 minutes passed, and the line was jammed. Shame on Jeep for setting false expectations of a fair entry. I bet the 10 lucky winners had Android phones.

Good on yer BigFish, you are right, I'm better off with my old Toyota than a new Jeep. This comp gave me the same empty feeling as when my ex-Jeep's pinion gears whined, then finding one can't change the diff centre without a workshop press, or when my Mrs' new Jeep service cost $130 for the engine oil alone! Back to Toyota thank you Mr Jeep!

You don't win a Jeep........You LOSE a Jeep. It wouldn't surprise me if one of the 10 didn't make it back to civilization!
Had one go down that road.... never again. The low build quality Jeep think is acceptable was disappointing to say the least.
