Ok cool. Let's just kill this conversation off. The discussion is bigger than the problem. These are all first world problems. Let's get back to enjoying life

..or, they could get it right from the factory and not require that the customer come back and get it fixed.

Warranty fixes should be for the occasional issue that gets missed. It shouldn't be SOP for common issues.

Further, I've read far too many posts from people who do take it back to the dealer, only to have them balk at doing anything about it. They essential insist "it's normal".

If the mods wish to do so, then they certainly can. However, I'm not seeing anything here that warrants it. No one is being abusive to others. If complaining were not permitted, there would be very little activity on this forum. If someone objects to the complaining, no one is being forced to read the posts.

In addition, I really, really hate the "first world problem" argument.

We are a first world here, therefore we have first world problems.

We aren't fighting over water, food or shelter, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be trying to further improve quality of life. We have machines to wash our clothes and dishes. We have computers and phones to enhance our lives. We drive pretty cars because we don't have to travel through jungles or open deserts (though we do have a capable 4 wheel drive, so....).

People in 3rd world nations aren't buying these vehicles. We are. That means the companies that make the vehicles we buy need to make the customer feel like they got something for their money or risk losing a future customer. As one of (if not the) biggest consumer markets for vehicles like this, we've earned the right to gripe when it doesn't satisfy us. That's how stuff gets better.

It actually astonishes me that we've become so apologetic to companies that shave nickels and dimes to make a product cheaper instead of providing a reason for people to pay more.

Have we really forgotten what it means to have quality? It really seems like we've gotten so used to stuff being shoved at us with little or no quality control, it's no wonder companies see everything as "disposable".

I wish my income were so disposable...

Again, overall, I'm happy. It's just that the exterior fit and finish are pretty shoddy in comparison to everything else. As a result, maybe they need to figure out who's letting the team down.

If they can get everything else right, why not that?

Re: body panels Not lined up!!!

Well I to was not happy either about my body panel alignment. So after finding and fixing my electrical gremlins this morning I decided to see what I could do to rectify my drivers door alignment. I loosened the 4 nuts on the door side of the hinge hoping they were slotted holes. That way I could move door down a little but after 3 attempts at this procedure nothing changed. There is no wiggle room in the door hinge mount holes. When I loosened the nuts door would drop ever so slightly and be perfect. But as soon as I tightened them up again door would go back to the exact same way it was before. So I do not think there is much that can be done about the up and down alignment. So I guess it is staying as is am I happy about it no but I'am not going to lose sleep over it. Could the QC be better hell yes but I kind of knew this going in as all the GC's on dealer lots are plagued with the same workmanship. Remember you bought the vehicle and had the opportunity to look it over before handing over your hard earned money. You could have walked away if I you saw something that was not to your liking. Or insisted on having it rectified before you took delivery. So I really do not understand why some people purchase things just to go home and complain about them.

You're assuming complaining and not doing anything about it are one and the same.

Can't people complain about having to deal with something that shouldn't have been wrong in the first place?

In fact, your example is clearly what's wrong: they aren't building the stuff right so it will fit together correctly.
