All manufactureres have to make concessions with new environmental constraints imposed on them.
I'm sure bright minds have optimized the paint application and drying time with the needs to keep the production line moving at a profitable pace.

One thing is certain, you can play with chemistry, but you can't change the laws of chemistry. Solvent based finishes will dry faster and will be more resistant to damage (UV, impact, scratches, etc.) however the environmental trade-off is no longer justifiable to today's standards and expectations.

Water based paints can be just as good, but the cost in time is greater. Time is money, and idle plants are expensive. So, they tweak the application to speed up the drying, but end up with orange peel.

That has mostly been a non issue for a while now. It was a big problem early on MY14.

Re: factory paint defect?

Seems that Jeep has the attitude that if we keep buying then there is no issue with the paint and finish, We were up to Daytona today and every new Jeep GC we seen looked like it was painted with a roller, Heck my wife can now spot them driving by.
There is a big ISSUE with the paint and finish and I would ask every Owner to contact Jeep to let them know.

Re: factory paint defect?

When I called Chrysler about the "tiger shark" paint defect I made new friends at 1-800-465-2001

My stance that the car has a defect that makes the car worth less under any condition and was looking for some compensation in addition to the option of having it repainted did not go over well.


Chrysler's answer "The dealer delivered a flawed vehicle and you agreed to delivery of it".
We will paint it and should be like new.


Chrysler has Zero interest in ANY customer satisfaction or follow-up. (This is Round#2 , Round#1 was the DEF issue on the 2014 model that took exactly one year to get resolved)

The Jeep GC SUMMIT / SRT Jeep Claims to be flagship vehicles and the prices certainly are, the customer service should be too but far from it.


Since 2002 we've had 7 new Jeeps and 1 Dodge RAM. this is the last one !.


Love the 2015 Jeep GC just tired of Jeep's poor customer service.
The 6 year old Honda CRV was planned to be replaced with Cherokee later this year - wife says no way!


(CRV had an issue way in the beginning, Honda Extended Warranty no questions asked!!! - Jeep take note)

Re: factory paint defect?

My granite crystal is pretty even, I can't complain about the color. What I can complain about are the number of contaminants that seem to have entered the paint booth when my vehicle was sprayed. This is my 3rd jeep. 1st 2 had 1 defect a piece. I just waxed my new '15 GC Altitude and found 7. It's where dust or bug or something gets sprayed on the body. It's a little pimple on the paint. I had a '13 Kia Sorento with Zero paint defects. Jeep has to get their quality control up- this model has been out for 5 years so there is no excuse.


(another example- my vehicle came without a cover for the passenger footwell light. How did I find out? Cause the day I got it, my little girl burned her foot of the exposed bulb. The dealer replaced it of course, but it left the factory like that).

Re: factory paint defect?

I'm so glad you posted this. What you stated is my problem, so much so it made me think the worst of jeep and that my 1 month old SRT is being traded for an altitude tomorrow. I was having my SRT wrapped and my guy with 25 + years in the business swears that my roof and spoiler were re-painted. I can't take stuff like this.here is one of the pics he took to let me know what was in the paint.

Re: factory paint defect?

Well it seems like Jeep went to a "Water Based" paint system that takes longer to dry thus you get more dust , dirt, bugs and dust bunny's in the finish, Plus there more sag time for the paint on radius to, This kind of paint job would be ok for the YUGO but not for the top of the line Grand Cherokee, Just my 2 cents.

Yup I have 4 or 5 "dust pimples" in my brand new Altitude and its black so at certain angles they look like a reverse ding. (poping out) Detailer said he might be able to color sand a few down so they're not so bad but I might live with it. A black car only looks super clean for about a minute. Then the dust kicks in and they become hard to spot. I can say Jeep has some crappy paint methods. I saw other brand new ones on the lot and I could not find one without something in the paint. Wife's got a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe and no paint blems there....at least not from the factory.
