Obviously you've never dealt with Chrysler on a manufacturing defect. They ignore you and stall. Lawyering up quickly was the smartest thing he could have done.

Re: 2011 Jeep FIre ONE MONTH OLD !

My point was why spend the money on a lawyer and get adversarial so quickly. They are gonna take the vehicle back to examine it anyway so it isn't like they are gonna fight on that. Look, I have dealt with "the big boys" in many areas of business, law, and insurance....I have always won decisively and know what to do. This is a very very simple matter...about as simple as a return at Costco.

I will not say anything to get me in trouble because nothing I will say could get me in trouble or hurt my case this is simple the jeep caught on fire due to a manufacture defect. After researching this mine is not the only one that has done this. Jeep dealer was shocked that a fuse didn't blow. He pointed out a wire that he thought was the culprit. It was the sunroof power line the wire was completely burned before the connection to the sunroof. It might of been a different wire but this was from the service adviser. The dealer is not allowed to touch the unit Chrysler attorneys are involved now and have been in contact with mine. They are doing there best to make this right. Again this is a great car but I am requesting full Buyback. This is fair. This is the last comment I will make. To protect myself. But think about this what if I had kids in the back in car seats or my crippled grandmother that is a slow mover and the fire would of been so fast it would of wiped my family out. Save the smart comments this is serious.
I hope that you have your own attorney for your sake.

He does, you highlighted the part where he says that Chrysler's have been in contact with 'HIS'... meaning lawyer(s).
