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

Just had window tint installed on my front windows. Decided to wash it because its beautiful here in PA. Upon doing so, I notice that my Grille is cracked straight across 2 of the slits on the grille.

There are no stone chips on the grille whatsoever. This makes me think it happened during transportation.

I wonder if there is anything I can do?

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

How long have you had it? I can't imagine that was overlooked during pre-delivery inspection and may be a tough case to prove that it occurred during transport. Good luck and let us know the outcome!

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

Too much damage for a stone hit, but I suppose someone could have lightly backed into it. If you are sure that's not the case, try your dealer. If they won't help call Jeep CS.

I promise that no one has backed into my jeep. This damage makes me sick. I never park by anybody and the bumper is perfect

OP, how did you pick it up on 1/14 if you posted pictures after washing it on 1/6? Not trying to be confrontational, but maybe we can help you re-trace your steps and figure out how the grill got cracked.

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

That's not something easily overlooked picking it up from the dealer. Looks like it hit something high up or someone gave it a baseball bat treatment. Have any jealous neighbors or enemies? I can't see it cracking from stress and I doubt it was delivered that way.
