Re: 500 miles on my Overland and I just noticed it today....

Wow! It feels like yesterday when I picked it up. Oh yeah that is right. I picked it up on a Friday and on Monday or Tuesday they released an additional 1,000 dollars ALLY cash.

I just wish I knew exactly what happened. I'd feel much better about it

I don't know how anyone can tell from my first initial images that were taken with an iphone that the grille does not appear to be cracked.

I think a call to your auto insurance rather than your dealer is in order.

I think its hard to tell from the initial pics if there is damage or not. I would def still call the dealer and see what they say before going the insurance route.

Re: 500 miles on my Overland and I just noticed it today....

In your original post right after you got the Jeep, you say you just cleaned it, would you not have noticed the cracks then? I know I would have!

Re: 500 miles on my Overland and I just noticed it today....

The other possibility is a high rear bumper on the other vehicle, like a delivery truck, some types of cube van or a 'pup' semi trailer. When they are backing up they cannot see directly behind. And they might not even feel a small impact like the one that may have cracked your grille. Just for thought...

Re: 500 miles on my Overland and I just noticed it today....

Perhaps I over looked it the first time I cleaned it. It takes a certain angle and certain light to truly see the cracks.

Never would have thought to look at a grille for marks. I worry about scratches, dents, etc. not a cracked grille.

Re: 500 miles on my Overland and I just noticed it today....

Seriously, I'd try the warranty route first. The dealer may help you in order to keep you as a customer. Contrary to what is written in this forum, there are good and reasonable dealers out there. If that doesn't work, then either have it repaired on your own or with insurance. Bare in mind that insurance companies really don't like repairing new vehicles.
