Re: Major OMG Issue with my '14 Overland!

For all of you that think this is funny, shame on you. Mine are out of line as well.
I hope this is the only thing he finds out of line with his 50k+ NEW Vehicle.

Who is watching the Quality control on our vehicles?

Re: Major OMG Issue with my '14 Overland!

This is where my Army mechanic training paid off. When I determined the alignment issue with my exhaust tips I pulled out a trusty roll of "100 mile an hour tape" and jury rigged a strap that pulled the lower one up a 1/4" and viola... it looks good and now is just feels like a real Jeep.

I cannot see how they can ship a vehicle with such a major flaw.

Or not.

...tom

Edit: for crying out loud my Daughter's Scion xA didn't have this problem! Nevermind that it only had one exhaust tip - this is a serious safety problem!
You got really screwed. The left should be higher so when you sit in it they level out. At least that is what my dealer told me.

Re: Major OMG Issue with my '14 Overland!

Well I don't know if it was the 100 mile an hour tape exhaust alignment or the chrome dipstick but I am able to take out SRTs with a Pentastar 5 speed.
