Where's the Dip Stick
Not quite 3 weeks back, I purchased a '12 JGC Altitude. Well, last Sunday I went to check the oil for the first time as I had about 1,800 miles on the truck. I could not find the dip stick. I read the book, looked at the pic for the 3.6 engine and there was not a dip stick where the picture showed.
Well, I took the truck to the shop this morning and they could not find it either. Finally, we noticed that what looked like a support strut was the dip stick tube.
Apparently when the engine was put in the truck from the bottom, the dip stick got caught in the wheel well and it bent the dip stick and its tube. It also bent back some of the sound insulation.
The dealer bent the tube back to its appropriate place and fixed the insulation. They did, however, express that inattention to detail at the factory is not uncommon.
Has anyone else had a similar issue?
