My not positive sun visor recall experience.

I had my 2014 in for a state inspection, free oil change (thanks Jeep) and tire rotation today. I went to pick it up and according to the work report, they performed all recalls (the ones with parts available) even though I hadn't asked. This was actually fine by me as I was going to schedule to do them anyway but I was holding off until the alternator and other part was available so I could get it all (and some other warranty work) done at once.

So after I pay I go out to the car and immediately noticed that the arm rest on my driver side door is messed up. It almost looks like someone rested their elbow on it and pushed down hard. You can clearly feel that the hard foam underneath the leather has been crushed slightly resulting in the leather being warped:



One of the managers came out and documented it and said he'll talk to the interior guy and get back to me; if it's not something that can be fixed, they'll have to order a part he said. Fun. I just hope that when they repair it they don't cause more damage elsewhere.

So I left and when I got home I looked at the PDF describing the repair procedure to see where I should look for more any more potential damage, and went back out to the car to look.

It looks like they forgot (or didn't care) to move the rear mat out of the way before moving the seat before/after accessing the battery, as the mat appears to have been jammed underneath the seat in the process resulting in several permanent creases:



That's much less of a big deal to me as a mat is much more easily replaceable, but it still shows carelessness. I just hope they don't give me trouble about this since I didn't mention it when I picked the Jeep up (because I didn't see it).

In looking I also noticed two other things I'm not sure whether I noticed before, but I can't be certain. Can anyone tell me whether or not these areas look similar in their own vehicles?

Re: My not positive sun visor recall experience.

Now I'm second guessing myself. I went out today and I could still feel the little indentation in the foam under the leather, but the wrinkling was no longer visible. So maybe it's been wrinkled before but I never noticed it because the conditions weren't right whenever I glanced in that area? Today was warmer, sunnier, and less damp than the day I picked up the Jeep.

I'd be curious to know if anyone else has that sort of wrinkling in the same area.

Re: My not positive sun visor recall experience.

No wrinkles here. That's why I won't take mine in unless it's absolutely necessary - too many horror stories of broken clips, future rattles, etc. Mine's still working perfectly so not going to risk screwing it up!

Re: My not positive sun visor recall experience.

Not trying to be an alarmest but to those like me who have had this recall done, looks like another recall coming...hmmm

Those that avoided it because you were worried that the fix was worse than problem....well, you own the day!

Re: My not positive sun visor recall experience.

They couldn't get my pillar back on correctly. It popped off a couple days after I had the same recall done. I went back and now theres a ding in my a pillar where they slammed their fist (I hope they didn't use a hammer) against it to get it to pop in.
It fell off again a couple days later.
Being an ex audio installer I took a look and one of the alignment pins was bent. I went ahead and fixed it myself.
I hate my local dealers.! Bad experiences with two of three. Third one hasn't been visited yet due to distance.
