I did see some other 2014s on the lots with the issue, but I've also seen some 2014s in parking lots that don't have it. I seem to remember a few people here saying they had it too but I forget if they were able to get it replaced or not.
jeepers I had the same issues even worse on my Laredo on the rear drivers side door,it was buckled and pinched,dealer ordered a whole new piece and replaced no questions asked

Re: Rubber trim imperfections.

Lucky for you! My dealer, just like the dealer I bought from, insists that that's how it was designed. Maybe so; regardless, I've opened up a ticket with Chrysler regarding this issue and several body fitment issues that the dealer refused to work on, so we'll see what comes of it.

Re: Rubber trim imperfections.

I've just taken delivery on an MY14 Jeep GC in Australia and has exactly the same as your pics on the back 2 windows. I just assume that's how they are all coming out of the factory.

The dealer I purchased from said this is normal. Another dealer just told me they checked 4 other 2014s and they look the same and that's just how they're molded.

If they did look like this, any luck getting it replaced?
Mine looked almost the same just moved it with mt thumb not perfect but better. I would be a little afraid for the dealer to do anything might scratch the paint or worse. It is not a big deal to me .

Mine looked the same on delivery. The dealer took it in to the service guys and was back in 15 mins with everything looking good. He said they used a heat gun to put it back in place. Been holding up OK so far. 2000 miles.

Check the rubber where the hood meets up with windshield and front side panel... especially driver side . Mine was a real wreck and noticed at pickup
