Do you happen to have the part number for the flares. My dealership is telling me that these parts do not exsit yet, no part numbers in their system, they cannot replace the flares.

Check out the Uconnect system - Registration, Memory of settings, Pairing of phone etc. If it all fails, contact Uconnect and open a ticket. In my case, they reloaded the headunit - Still can't get my Iphone 5 to work. (Next rev of Uconnect software should resolve)

Walk around and pay careful attention to the following -

Front headlights - Condensation - Won't know if it comes back until I wash it again.

Rear Tail light drivers side - Seal broken, water inside (Dealer Replaced)

Rear Drivers side Fender Flare - Not lined up with molding buldging out (Dealer ordered color matched Flare)

Fender Wheelwells - Look for missing plastic rivets or rivets that are popped out (Dealer installed missing rivets)

Rear tailgate alighment, shifts more to the right - Body shopped adjusted

Window seal passenger rear window, apparently cut when it was installed (dealer ordering new seal)

Hoping none of you have these for problems, my build date was March, hoping they realize they have QC issues.

Read your list and need your help.
I am having the same issue for the flares in the back. They are sticking out. Took to the dealer and they tell me they don't have a part number for them yet, and therefore cannot chnage them out. They tried fixing with double sisded tape, but here in Houston with 110F, it came right off.
They tell me they canot order them as those flares are not in the Chrysler system yet.
I have also the same probleme with the back window seals. Car was built in March!!!

That's a crock -mine too was built in March , had one of them replaced at the end of March. I'll have to try and find the service order to get you the part number. The other thing you can try which I did on my left , there are 4+ screws under the flare that you can loosen, push the flare in and tighten them up, didn't work for the right but did for the left.

I had these 2 on my 2013. Everyone no matter what year do a walk around. Mine also included a missing bolt on the hood. Made it kick up on the back side of it.
The passenger rear window seal, is not easy to see. Look close at it.

Re: Before you drive off the lot with your 2014 - Look for -

Tried tightening the screws but nothing. Damn texas heat!!
Was cleaning it yesterday, and i noticed also by the front doors on both sides, the "ground effect body kit" that is pretty loose on both sides. You can actually see the plastic rivets when the door is open where it says "do not step" on fake step bars. Overall, very nice truck but definitely some details that should have been adressed at afctry prior to shipping. In my opinion that "fake step side bar" should be much more sturdy than what it is now. Like every body kit out there, the double sided adhesive should be used on the entire length of the body, not relying on plastic rivets only...

Re: Seriously?

I had a brand new factory ordered BMW that had to have the engine torn down after 4 months of ownership. New head and pistons...etc.

I'll take a broken window seal vs. taking a brand new engine apart anytime. It can happen to any manufacture and BMW/Lexus arent immune to sub par quality.

Your post is not inspiring confidence...... I can only hope that they get their act together by the fall.

Also check to make sure the windshield wipers work. I got mine home only to realize they didn't so I spent 10 days dodging storms and using RainX until a new motor was delivered to the dealer!

Scratches on the inside of the clear plastic on the instrument cluster. Goes pretty much the whole way around along the edge of the instrument cluster with a nice big one straight down through the tachometer. Not sure what the deal is there or how somebody could miss it but it will be replaced next week. Not sure if they can just replace the plastic or have to replace the whole instrument cluster.

I had the same issue with a nice inch long scratch over the speedometer. The service department at the dealership was able to apply some scratch remover and it fixed it for the most part. They did order the part in case I still wanted to change it out though.

Between that and no wipers I was not feeling too good about my purchase for the first couple of weeks...
