Re: My dealership must thought I was an idiot..

The fender should always be no more than 2 mills over and no less than 1 mill over the front door. It is supposed to be like that for aerodynamics. Should never be flush and the fender should never be under flush to the door.

Re: My dealership must thought I was an idiot..

Damn...now I'm going to have to bring my WK2 in to get it adjusted to the correct gap. I mean, I want to properly cool my engine compartment and to have the factory spec aerodynamics!

Re: My dealership must thought I was an idiot..

Take the dealership guy on a tour of the other WK2s on the lot. Assuming they're not also misaligned, ask him why they are selling all of those which would obviously not have failed that "windtunnel test". Better yet, demand that they either "fix" all of those vehicles on the lot, or make yours "broken" like the rest.

I have to say, while the WK2 is a pretty luxurious vehicle, and holds its own for the most part with European imports, they are being sold out of some pretty sketchy dealerships. Every time I deal with my dealership I feel worse for the experience. Stories like this confirm that it's not just this one dealership but a far more common problem.

No sense building great vehicles if you aren't prepared to properly support them.

Re: My dealership must thought I was an idiot..

Ok guys, Chrysler Canada wasn't much help at all. They told me that they rely on dealerships to make warranty and workmanship calls, and have no authority to influence dealerships' decisions because they are all independently operated businesses.

So I took it to Destination Chrysler in North Vancouver for a second opinion and they immediately agreed that the gap is larger then should be. Made the appointment to have it realigned right away and pick her up today . Thumbs up for Destination Chrysler in North Van .

Still not sure why the original dealership refused the repair, as my brief conversation with Destination Chryslre confirmed that Chrysler Canada pays them for all warranty and workmanship works. I guess not all dealerships are not created equall, some are better than others. Cheers.
