Brand New 2014 Summit DOA Today 2/22/2014

After waiting for 2 months for delivery my brand new 2014 Summit Granite with V8, Engine Block Heater, and Skid Plates, I went to pick it up and it failed after one mile. First it had a loud intermittent droning vibration. The salesman said that it was the air pump that raises the car up and down and implied that this was normal. Even asked me if I want to try another one to prove it. In addition, blue smoke was coming out of the exhaust pipe. Exhaust pipe might have been packing grease but that is a stretch. Noise making air pump by design is bad. I told them I don't buy cars that have design flaws or are defective. Then they said that the noise may have been the result of them installing the skid plates. They are waiting until Monday for their master tech to look at it.

Beautiful car but I may reject this even of they say it is fixed cause this might be a lemon.

Any ideas?

I don't have any helpful words, but I'll just note that I have never heard the QL suspension pump from inside my '14 Overland. Ever.

You might want to inform then that you are allergic to smoke when it is blown up your butt

Reject it for sure and reorder. Don't accept a Jeep that is having problems when brand new.

Thanks all. Tom, I think I will sneeze each time I hear BS. Then when they ask me if I am OK I can say that I am extremely allergic to bullsh*t.

Re: Brand New 2014 Summit DOA Today 2/22/2014

I wouldn't make a decision until the tech looked at it. Then I would ask to talk to the tech directly.


It could be something simple.

Re: Brand New 2014 Summit DOA Today 2/22/2014

I hope you get this sorted out soon because there should not be a loud droning noise, one of the things I like about mine is how quiet it is overall. As for blue smoke no idea what's going on there but have it checked out thoroughly.

Good luck and like someone else said, talk to the Tech about the issues since the sales person sounds way off base on this.

Re: Brand New 2014 Summit DOA Today 2/22/2014

I've heard the QL after I've shut off the engine and it lowers itself but never while driving or even idling. I was sitting at a light watching the car in front of me as it lower itself. Pretty darn cool.

I had what looked like vapor after the 1st 100 miles coming from the front (looked like a radiator leak) but I had seen it on every Jeep I test drove. After 1k on my Overland, no vapor any more.

I'd have a long talk with tech and even put it on a lift to see how they installed the skid plates. Would suck if they drilled into the oil, DEF, gas line.

This was supposed to be a good day. What a drag and downer though.

Re: Brand New 2014 Summit DOA Today 2/22/2014

I totally know how you feel.



I got my first CEL in my brand new/ordered 2014 Limited 4x4 V6 while driving it off the dealers lot.

Hopefully it's something simple, but I agree with others here...don't accept it until it's fully fixed. Even though my Jeep is running fine now, I had to put up with a shitty shifting transmission for 9 months until Chrysler finally came out for a fix for it..and then I had to struggle finding a dealership to actually perform the reflash. Ultimately it took lodging a formal complaint at Chrysler Customer Care to get a dealership to do the work.

Good luck.

Re: Brand New 2014 Summit DOA Today 2/22/2014

Thanks for the words of encouragement. They can probably fix the vibration. What I am really concerned about is the blue smoke. I keep my new cars for a long time (currently driving and am original owner of a 97 JGC TSi V8). Powerful and running like a champ but seats and other things are wearing out. Engine is flawless and NO SMOKE EVER! Worried that down the road the engine is flawed. May insist dealer order new vehicle. Thoughts anyone?

Re: Brand New 2014 Summit DOA Today 2/22/2014

The Jeep is brand new and suffering problems and the dealer is lying to you? Walk away! Go to another dealer and order a new one.
