Re: Paint issues and windscreen issues

Update:

Call received late yesterday from dealer stating heat lamps did nothing. Yep I hear you all saying that's exactly what we all here knew and said.

He continued with, so we'll hold on to the car and now we'll arrange to have a paint specialist inspect and test the paint tomorrow or Friday (if he is available) to see where we go from here.

My patience is wearing very thin.

Re: Paint issues and windscreen issues

i picked up my MG laredo last tuesday. when doing paint protection at home found two spots on rear spoiler that they have sprayed over contaminants. 2x very small grain of sand. this defect looks very minor . perhaps factory paintshop clean rooms not that clean?

Jeep Australia have acknowledged they are ALL paint DEFECTS.

I found a few defects like that, but they all came out quite easily with a clay bar and the paint is all quite smooth now.

Re: Paint issues and windscreen issues

I've just taken delivery of my new 2013 Jeep in Mineral Grey and have a similar problem.
It was the first thing I noticed when I picked up the vehicle which was parked inside the dealers shop. I just figured it was greasy hand marks from the service guys or something checking out under the bonnet.
Needless to say after my first wash, it is still there.
Mine is predominant on the bonnet and the front pillars either side of the front windscreen, but it's the bonnet that is really noticeable.

This is really disappointing after spending $61,000 on this new Limited.
Going to put the dealer on notice next week. I'm sure it won't be resolved to my satisfaction given how poor their spare parts division is.

I'll take some photos soon and see if it shows in the photos and post em up.
