[dumb] Things Jeep Dealers Say:

Full credit to Benn0, please post up the dumbest things you've heard from your Jeep Dealer/stealer.

My first one would be "Car pulls to the left because it's American and they drive on the other side of the road"

Re: [dumb] Things Jeep Dealers Say:

The recovery hook debacle: Its against ADR to have hooks on the front of the car (despite selling it that way on the trailhawk and NZ build cars)

bitbob when asking about the dpf regen failure: I've already spoke to the girl in the service centre who tells me I have to drive over 109km/h to ensure this doesn't happen again!

Car being collected after servicing.

Dealer: "Nothing wrong with the car"
Me: "Then why won't it start?"
Dealer: "Ummmm..."

Re: [dumb] Things Jeep Dealers Say:

GMC455 dpf regen failure: There answer/remedy was/is make sure you warm the car up for at least 5 mins before you drive off - need to get the temp up of the engine so that it can burn the fuel off.

SRTs aren't designed to be driven in the rain.

Re: [dumb] Things Jeep Dealers Say:

We're killing our resale here There again I suppose when these things are out of warranty the stupid things the dealer will be saying is "the part required is (looks at watch to read the hour) thousand dollars".

The SRT in heavy rain thing was my all-time favourite.

Re: [dumb] Things Jeep Dealers Say:

Me: This one doesn't seem to have the tow package on it. What's the tow rating on the Jeep SRT? Dealer in Columbus, Ohio: SRT's can't tow because the gearing is too low. Why would someone want to tow with a SUV? (I kept a straight face, but it was hard to to bust out laughing)

Re: [dumb] Things Jeep Dealers Say:

Dealer in Cincinnati, OH about a New (demo) 2015 SRT: The Red Vapor package puts a blacked out badge on one side of the vehicle, and a chrome one on the other side. They all come that way from the factory. ME: Looks to me like the whole door has been replaced. It is not even the same color. There are buff marks on the back door too. Maybe some lot or transit damage? DEALER: we don't know. We can't check the service records, our computer is turned off. ME: walking out, just amazed.
