Re: Black Vapor chrome wheels now an option on 2013's!

The piece that is behind the facia needs to be adjusted so the facia will snap in and lock properly, this may be adjustable or? can be modded to work. Warranty I understand this, but may be long time for new parts if Jeep looks into this problem. Do not get angry at Jeep, Jeep does not make all the parts. Like Boeing Jets, Boeing assembles them, parts are all made by other manufacturers., suppliers.

Then you people have 2 options

1. Deal with the shitty design and improperly fitting front fascia on your $60k+ vehicle for as long as you own it.

2. Continue to take it to the dealer every time it happens, record it, take pics, make them fix it, make them replace the front fascia as many times as it takes until it stays on correctly.

After repeated times of fixing it without a new fascia, and if more than one time of installing a whole new front fascia exists, one would clearly meet the requirement of "The same problem has been subject to repair four or more times by the manufacturer or its agents and the buyer has at least once directly notified the manufacturer of the need for the repair of the problem as provided in the warranty or owner's manual." For those that have this issue, the problem is not going to go away, nor is Jeep going to issue a recall on the front fascia. It's going to be up to the customer to take the vehicle in as many times as it takes until it is right.

IF you have a vehicle with the problem shown in the picture posted by Hammerhead, you need to have the Fascia, and the attach bracket replaced. if both are not changed together the problem could occur again.

Re: Black Vapor chrome wheels now an option on 2013's!

can you guys use zip ties to hold it in place? i know that's not what you want to hear after buying a 60k vehicle but it could fix the problem.

i use a metal wire anchored to the frame to keep my borla perfectly centered, for example.
