They broke all the tabs in the vent and tried to stuff it back together.

Thats terrible...hopefully they didn't try and give it back to you like nothing happened...

That is exactly what happened, took it back the next day and explained my disappointment to the service manager. It looks great now but I wasn't happy that they gave it back to me that way. You basically need to inspect your car every time after taking it to the dealer.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

Going to check mine closely in the am. I'm in the Phoenix area so the sun here is brutal.

Indeed, on one of my multiple visits since owning this Jeep I found a curb checked wheel during walk around inspection on pick up. The dealer took care of it, my service guy said it was a 1200$ mistake someone made.

Opps

Glad I took a close look

It will be annoying when you find out how much these parts cost, and if the fix doesn't hold and you have to replace the $590.

I just got back from the dealer, I have been traveling and never took mine in yet to get taken care of as it wasn't that bad. Well, today I went out and the entire piece had fallen off except for a small tab holding it near the passenger side vent. New part is now on order. Like I said, SRTs fix better work, because I'm not paying that much to replace interior moldings out of warranty.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

My SRT stays in the Garage. I wonder If I should leave it outside a day or 2 to make sure I don't have any issues with the trim. Are the SRT's that are haveing issues made last year or earlyer in this year?
Thanks

Add one more here to the trim coming off on the passenger side above the glovebox. My GCSRT8 build date was 2/18/12. I called the SRT Team but they were clueless and they referred me to the dealer who had not heard of the problem. This forum is definitely ahead of the curve. My question is, dare I ask, will I get a redesigned part with warranty, or one from the parts bin that had the problem to begin with? It could be worse, but annoying for sure.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

How is the redesigned carbon fiber pieces different from the originals? Why did the originals warp? And why won't the replacements warp too?

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

FYI, these parts are back ordered. I am going on week 4 of waiting for a replacement.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

Glad I'm not the only one... Driver's side door trim and trim around start button. Took 4 weeks for parts, but dealer took care of it in a day.

Hopefully it will be as easy when the poor fitting exterior trim/panels finally fall off.

Re: Carbon Fiber Warped in Hot Sun

Forgot to include this, was at SRT Track event 18 Aug. 2 of the 5 Jeeps were missing CF pieces, they had fallen off. My wife made a joking comment when she got in one for a pro ride along and she stated the driver (Ricky Shake N Bake) stated it is a common problem, and they are also having some trouble with front clips.

BTW, all Jeeps, 300s, Chargers we drove DID NOT have Luxury package....and let me say, the 300 and Charger looked embarrassing inside without it for how much you are paying for the car. Not to mention, the CF looks completely different in the Charger and 300, the Charger especially. Looked like the fake crap.
