As for DEF fluid, this is normal not to be full since Jeep doesn't want a whole, full tank of DEF to get old before the vehicle is sold. I asked my salesman about this the day after I bought the truck and he got approval from his manager for me to come by and pick up two 2.5g jugs of MOPAR DEF, free of charge. Any reputable dealership should offer this as well, we're talking less than $35 of DEF that can be had at Sam's for just less than $11 a 2.5g jug.

Ask your salesman how that Chrysler "survey" works and than ask him again about a full tank of gas and DEF.
I have never gotten a full tank on delivery with any of the 8 new vehicles I've purchased, 5 of them top of the line Jeeps from 3 different dealers!

Re: New Vehicle Delivery Question

My '15 overland was delivered with a full tank of diesel, but less than 1/3 DEF. I noticed it once I got home and was playing around with the dash settings. I had to go back anyway to deal with purchasing cross rails so I enquired about it. They were very apologetic for overlooking it and topped it up immediately. I too have never had a new car without a full tank of gas (I think it's about 10 vehicles, 7 different brands over 28 years)

Re: New Vehicle Delivery Question

The best way to care for your leather dash is to protect it from the sun. Invest in a good quality, great fitting shade and use it religiously.

Re: New Vehicle Delivery Question

North of the border, deal always includes full tank if fuel but then again it's a line item of 75 bucks on the sale. When the deal is agreed upon the dealer works the numbers back to show that as an expense, including all the other BS they throw on just to reduce their margin (like admin fee) Does not change the agreed upon price at all but breaks it all out to more "loss" including fuel/def to the dealer and is a tax benefit.

Re: New Vehicle Delivery Question

The dealer is required to top off the DEF tank. If they refuse, ask them to see the PDI check list for your Jeep. It is listed as topping off the DEF. Chrysler/Jeep pays your dealer to do this. It is required. If they still refuse, ask to speak to the regional Jeep rep and watch how quickly they top off the DEF. Just remind them they are paid by Jeep to do this.
As far as fuel goes, that is up to you, but I wild tell the dealership that is a make it or break it over the sale. They are not going to let you walk over a tank of gas, and if they do, I probably wouldn't want to work the that dealership in the first place.
