That doesn't mean something didn't happen ... what's the MDH number on the driver door? Did you order this GC? Or did you find it on the lot?
You have a long list... the paint and door gaps are a concern however I've seen many Jeeps come out of the oven poorly painted and assembled. Back in 2008 about 50% of GCSRT8's were substandard in terms of fit and finish. I've seen saggy rear doors, front fenders that didn't line up on the front door edge, hoods lightly dusted with the color coat, creating holidays.... this list goes on. But that was the year when Chrysler Jeep was shutting down 2nd shifts and going through massive change.
I've also seen a dealer salesman damage the front bumper on a brand new SRT8 that was on the showroom floor... upon return a week later, they repainted that section and did a terrible job on the clear coat. No one would have known unless they witnessed the damage like I did.
Personally, I would never have taken delivery on this vehicle with all the sheet metal gaps hosed up like that - the first thing I check when I order new a vehicle. I think you should take accountability for that....
Moving forward, something tells me you're picking fly shit out of the pepper because you really don't like this vehicle - I wouldn't either, but you need to face the fact you bought it and it's yours now.
I think you need make a case for a buy-back or simply cut your losses and get rid of it.. primarily because you're never going to be happy.
