Re: Tiptronic

Bro he was prob trying to find a way to blame you so that they dont have to fix it. If it was bad to use it why would they have built it into the jeep? Dealers are known to play games

Re: Tiptronic

It was the tech. Ik they do as they didn't feel anything which is ridiculous bc I felt it, I think they're all lazy as hell and it's annoying

Re: Tiptronic

Was it a tech at a Jeep dealership? If so, complain loudly enough to be heard by the other customers in the waiting room to the service rep as to why a tech would say such a thing. Then conclude loudly that the tech is a bottom-feeding lowlife and wonder loudly what Chrysler corporate's opinion of this is.

I can not speak for any other than myself, but I was having a warranty issue with a dealer. After a venting my frustration with Chrysler's customer service, s#!t got accomplished.
