Why I hate Jeep dealers

Less than two weeks ago I did oil change and other service in one of NJ Jeep dealerships. Yesterday I found that my washer liquid level is low since light been flashed on dash. I opened hood to add some and oh well .... plastic gap for washer liquid is open!!! It splashed for two weeks all over around my engine ...
That is why I would never-ever go to the dealer unless I need to do warranty repairs. Just in case I checked other things like oil gap and deep sticks, all in place thanks to god. That is f...g scary especially since they charged me extra $17 for world class check-up of my car!

Re: Why I hate Jeep dealers

Seems like a pretty strong reaction for something so small, eh?

Re: Why I hate Jeep dealers

Yep, kind of an over reaction. Could have happened anywhere. I always check under the hood after picking my vehicles up from having any work done.

Might be if you find this same day, but not two after weeks of driving and splashing washer all over engine ...

Well it was my first visit to the dealer. Besides they charged $17 for world class check-up service.... Scary is that you don't know now what else they forget to do there?

Re: Why I hate Jeep dealers

if you looked under the hood when you picked it up you would have caught it right away.

Re: Why I hate Jeep dealers

I always double check everyone's work when I'm paying for it, not just auto mechanics.

Re: Why I hate Jeep dealers

I always check my vehicle after any service. From various dealers over the years, I have received my Jeep back with a significantly low oil level, a rag right on the exhaust manifold, missing screws holding the air filter on, a refilled windshield washer container with summer fluid in the winter [I live in the northern Rockies], tires over or under inflated, and a missing tire jack.

Now, that is a really really bad news dealer.

That wasn't the same dealer that screwed up but two in NY and one in MT.
