Delivery Checklist

I think this may have been covered slightly in one of the other longer threads, but I can't seem to find it. Since I plan to (hope to) take delivery later this week or early next week, is there a checklist of things to look for while at the dealer? The only things I remember are to check the rear liftgate/bumper gap on each side (thanks Chevy) and to take it for a spin and check the buzzing sound or rattle. I think it was MajorTom who posted the case number on that one, correct me if I'm wrong.

Any other advice of what to look for? Or directions to a thread with a list already there? I tried the search function but was only coming up with stuff from 2012.

Re: Delivery Checklist

check the paint, only take delivery in the sunlight so you can inspect any defects

Re: Delivery Checklist

From what I have read, check for body panel alignment.

Re: Delivery Checklist

Look underneath vehicle(found rear shock leaking on mine) for leaks. Try to operate everything! If it opens, open it, if it turns on, turn it on, if it does anything at all, make sure it werks.

Check under the Jeep for the missing panel people have been talking about.

Re: Delivery Checklist

When I got my 2012 I missed out of alignment door panels and bad and/or poorly balance tires. When I got my 2013 I checked for all these things and the vehicle drive quality is so significantly better it really demonstrates how variable the delivery can be. The body seams responsible for most of the problem on my 2012 were at where the front doors met the roof line, the gasket in that area was not compressing and air would enter while driving. Best advise is to make sure take the actual vehicle out for an extended test drive.

Are you now going for the 2014?

Re: Delivery Checklist

One item I would add to the checklist is the verify your tire pressures. Each of my tires were inflated to 43psi cold (max rating is 44psi cold). Only found out by scrolling through the EVIC. Double checked with my tire gauge and it verified that the tires were overpressurized.

The door label for the 18" tires suggests 33psi cold all around. I adjusted the pressures so they are fine now.

I am certain that the vehicles are shipped with overpressure to minimize movement from springiness in the tires...dealer just missed this one I guess. Regardless, I don't think you want to be rolling with that much pressure in the tires...might be a bit noisier and a few more bumps!!

From the other topic on this:

Check out the Uconnect system - Registration, Memory of settings, Pairing of phone etc. If it all fails, contact Uconnect and open a ticket. In my case, they reloaded the headunit - Still can't get my Iphone 5 to work. (Next rev of Uconnect software should resolve)

Walk around and pay careful attention to the following -

Front headlights - Condensation - Won't know if it comes back until I wash it again.

Rear Tail light drivers side - Seal broken, water inside (Dealer Replaced)

Rear Drivers side Fender Flare - Not lined up with molding buldging out (Dealer ordered color matched Flare)

Fender Wheelwells - Look for missing plastic rivets or rivets that are popped out (Dealer installed missing rivets)

Rear tailgate alighment, shifts more to the right - Body shopped adjusted

Window seal passenger rear window, apparently cut when it was installed (dealer ordering new seal)

Hoping none of you have these for problems, my build date was March, hoping they realize they have QC issues.

Picked her up tonight... Didn't notice anything messed up until I got home. The back drivers side door is misaligned... Kind of a bummer. The passenger side both doors are flush. I'll post some pics soon.

I tried to get a picture but my phone camera sucks. The ambient interior lighting doesn't work on that door either. Here's the best I can do on the misaligned door tonight with my phone..
