2015 Delivery Squawks?

Hi all,

I took delivery of my 2015 Overland a few days ago and wanted to get feedback if I am being "too particular" towards my Jeep. After all, we are spending over 50k+ on these cars nowadays.

I noticed a few items at delivery,

1. Clear coat teardrop under the driver front corner near headlamp of the hood. About the size of an eraser head. Visible with hood stowed normally.

2. Driver inside door has a couple of boot scuff marks that dealer couldn't get out.

3. White piping (blue/brown interior) on passenger seat left side "wavy" on left side. Fairly noticeable standing in front of car outside. All other piping appears straight and good quality.

These were at the top of my list, there were a few other smaller issues but these keep sticking out with me.

My questions are: Is this a legit concern (s), is the risk / reward to fix it worth the trouble, and what would you do (if anything) and how would you handle it.

Thanks!

It's your jeep and you paid for it.
If it's annoying you get it fixed!

Yes, you're going to have some of these new vehicle disappointments.

You could ask your dealer if they could try to rub some of that clearcoat teardrop out. At least they could take it down a little bit so it isn't quite as noticeable. Anything more is going to require repainting... and then you run the risk of them having to repaint a large section to blend it in, or that you won't get an exact color match. You don't want to go there, trust me.

My 14 has a black interior. It was also in the dealer's showroom. I have scuff and scrape marks on the driver's door from all the dreamers who got in and out of it and didn't give a crap where there shoes were going. I also have scrapes in several other parts of the interior and I can't figure out how they ever got there. This is one reason of many why I don't care for black or dark colored interiors.

There's a difference between a scuff mark which can be removed and a scrape in the plastic itself which can't be removed. These will stick out like a sore thumb in a dark colored interior. Not much you can do about it. On a $50K vehicle, Jeep should've carpeted the lower door panels instead of leaving the cheap bare plastic exposed. At the very least they should've carpeted the door panel speaker bulge which is the most vulnerable part of the door panel.

Don't know what you could do with wavy seat seams other than replacing the leather cover itself. No guarantee that a new one won't have the same issue. You could try hand massaging it to see if you can get the seam to appear straighter. Sounds like a funny thing to do but it does work if you do this over a period of time.

FWIW....Magic eraser should take the scuff marks out. Cheap, no chemicals, and works great with mine.

all my door rubs come out with a wipe from a dampened microfiber cloth

If you notice problems when the vehicle is new, it will be in the back of your mind all the time. If somebody else points it out to you, it will make you upset. Get it fixed.

Re: 2015 Delivery Squawks?

For the scuffs, like others posted try microfiber cloth with a bit of water then Magic Eraser with a bit of water too if needed.

Kinda would need photos to see the issues. The piping thing as mentioned may be able to be "repositioned".

Someone posted that JNAP will be installing a new painting system soon so I would expect the paint finish quality to improve beginning with the new production (I know, not a help for you now, but nice to see quality issues being addressed).
