Touch up.

A couple of Jeep Garage decals, properly placed, would add class.

Wow! So you guys are paying $42, 000 to $87, 000 and would be happy with a touch up? Sorry! I work to hard for my money! They like 100% of the price - I like to have a nice car. They advertising that they have high standards. Honestly? Poor craftsmanship - poor end controll! And NO pride in what they do. I talked to the service people at the dealer. They find a lot of screws, look nuts and sometimes tools in the Jeeps. So what are they doing in the end controls? But I am sure that the workers complaining if they not getting paid 100% on paiday!

Hood issue

"Scratch- marks" left and right inside the hood.
During assembly the hood is held up with temporary gas struts, see picture below.

yes...UNDER THE HOOD of my $71K SRT I would accept a touch up. You see...I don't want some half rate dealership body shop painting on my $71k SRT and screwing up more than they fix. The paint UNDER the hood is not "show quality" anyway. Why risk more screw up from some local slack? Most people don't even look under the hood. I am probably one of the mots picky people on here...I keep my vehicles spotless, serviced etc. I could eat of the engine bay of my 14" SRT or 13' JKU 10a right now. Some of you people must live in a friggin perfect world for some of the lame ass whining Ive seen on here. /end rant
(not picking on you OP...the door paint is inexcusable...but the underhood is very VERY minor and not worth the effort)

Hi scottina.
It has also to do with the rust warranty. I don't like that anyone is coming later and telling me, I did the scratches myself and therefore my warranty is void. And by the way. FIAT is known for there really poor rust protection and paint-jobs in Europe!

And yes! I can be a pain in the ass if something isn't right! BTW: if the paint-job isn't done right again - they have to give me a other car. That is a promise from the management!

If the dealer does the touch up, where's the warranty issue?

The warranty issue is when the customer does NOT complain about damaged paint surfaces and comes than after 3 month when the spots starting to rust. The rust warranty covers only paint related issues - not scratches from tools - or what ever they use to hold the hood before the bold it to the body. The picture what was posted earlier does not show how the hood gets bolded. It shows already the hood ready on the body. BTW: Here in Canada is no body/paint shop with the dealers like in Germany. ( I am really missing that!!) So my dealer agrees that the paint job is shit - but he is not touching it at all. It goes to a paint shop we worked already with after we got rear-ended with our Grand Vitara. They made an excellent job. And yes. The shop is a small crapy looking one - as usual in Alberta. . :-(
