After 2.5 months of owning my vehicle I get a letter from the Rebate program that my Jeep does not qualify and I cannot get the $1000 rebate! WTH?

Quote:
Your vehicle is not on the Transport Canada list of eligible vehicles. This list can be found at website:
http://www.tc.gc.ca/programs/environmen ... bility.htm


Now, I don't know what kind of staff they have working there at the Government of Canada, but obviously they don't have very good vision benefits or they would see it is there in black and white! Arg! What a bunch of morons! :evil:
I swear, after buying this vehicle, every stupid thing that can happen, has! (Did I mention they STILL have not gotten the parts back to fix my bushings and sway bar from the dealer??) lol
Oh dear god...
Anyhow, the man I called on the phone kept saying it wasn't approved for a 4x4. First of all, it is. And second of all, I have a 2x4.

Anyone else have this issue??

It should be on the list. I checked before I bought mine and it was on there. Mines a 4x4 with the 5 speed. In fact I phoned and confirmed it was on there with the ministry. Its only been a couple of weeks since I sent it in though, so I'm still waiting!
Howdy

So to sum it up. 2007 model years, only 4x2 Manual and Auto were approved.

2008 model years, Both 4x2s and the 4x4 Manual only. NOT 4x4 Auto.

It sounds like someone did not read your application correctly or did not check off the proper fields on the electronic form correctly. Call them and verify what information they entered for your vehicle?

(Maybe they used the VIN and one or more fields in it are not correct?)

Rebate ..schmeebate ... :evil:

Bought a 2007 Jeep Patriot ( 4x4 ) ..in May of 2007 ... at the time, Chrysler Canada was advertising my exact vehicle as being eligible for the $1000 ecoAuto rebate ... this ad was in an insert in our local paper during the month of May .. panel showing my vehicle with a little red rectangle stating 'Eligible for $1000 cash bonus'.

Salesman explained that the forms should be available sometime later in the year.

When I sent in the application in Dec/07 .. it was denied and after talking to Transport Canada, they claim that no changes were made to the eligiblity list after it was sent to the manufacturers on or about March 20/07, and suggested that Chrysler had erred.

Chrysler Canada is not taking responsibility for the obvious mistake .. as a matter of fact .. I have been 'stonewalled' and practically ignored, not only by Chrysler Canada but also by my dealer ..(I have been with them for twenty some years with a new car every three or four years ..).

I have exhausted all non adversarial avenues .. my next step seems to be the courts .. and I have become so pissed off over the past six months that the courts seem like a refreshing possibilty.

At the beginning, I would have gladly accepted an apology and a couple of free oil changes ... now .. well ... we'll see.

My last letter to the dealer, containing copies of just about everything I had, including the actual advertisement, was sent over a month ago ...

Hmm .. venting does feel pretty good ...yes?

Ok, so I looked into it and I should get it in the next few months :( Grrrr for having to wait! The sales person marked it as an AUTOMATIC and that's why it was denied! :evil: It's a 5 speed.

Can anybody explain how come the '07 5-speed 4x4 is not eligible whilst the '08 qualifies??
Was there any change to provide better fuel economy?
How much better could it have gotten??
There does not seem to be significant improvements on the 2x4 models consumptions acceptable in '07 compared to the '08.
Just does not make cents (sense)!

The only thing I can see is the slight difference in the fuel ratings, and I mean slight. The 2007 is rated at 9.3 for the city and 7.4 for the highway. The 2008 is 9.2 for the city and 7.3 for the highway. It must of been just enough to bump the 2008 into the program.

I still see ads in the paper for that. They have a 4x4 compass with auto and they say it qualifies for the rebate when it doesn't! I guess they just claim its a misprint! Buyer beware!

The 2 X 2 gets better mileage than the 4 X 4.

I was just notified that my 2007 Jeep Compass 2.4 l cvt vehicle does not qualify.When I purchased my 2007 jeep compass the rep at the dealership advised me that it did qualify and when i contacted him this person has now denied the conversation. How can they get away this stuff like this?
