Re: Got her home today 2014 Summit

[QUOTE=reece;782059]Thanks guys,

I did notice at the dealer, the right rear door molding was off about 1/2 inch. The sales man thought we left the door ajar. Pat took a picture with his Iphone and of my VIN number. he said he would email it to Jeep, get it ok'd and then they would fix it.

See now I think when they do the vehicle inspection at the plant, they should catch things like misaligned mouldings and not pass it on to the dealers.

As much as I hate to say this... these things happen uncontrollably. Why? People are not perfect and honestly, unless everyone is paying 100% CLOSE attention to every single one... this will inevitably happen. When you build 600+ per day... they all start to look the same. I'm even guilty of this myself. One day, about 6 Inferno Red WKs came down following each other, and I got confused... didn't realize I had the line stopped because I didn't finish my job. How embarrassing!

"HEY MARLON, YOU GOT THE LINE DOWN!!!"
Me: "WHAT?! OH NO!!!!!"


I remember one Sunday I worked... the "K" was missing in Grand CheroKee on an almost $70k SRT.

Nobody noticed until it went to ship line. I stopped the line dead in its tracks, RAN to report it to the first person I could find.

Plant manager came all the way downstairs to thank me personally. That's one day I am NEVER going to forget.

Also, who's to say that it didn't happen outside of our control? Take Bill's for instance. I saw that thing drive off the line... it was perfect. No scratches anywhere, and now I get news of a half dollar sized paint chip. Ugh...

I believe someone's signature on the board says "Murphy was an optimist". And so it goes. Everyone certainly tries to do their best, but as far as I know, there's only One infallible being, or so I've heard.

My finger is on the molding that is over the rear wheel well. The molding that is coming off is on the door.

I am loving the car so far. I got her with 9 miles, and have about 120 so far. The truck is solid, handles great. Uconnect is really cool, from what I have learned so far.

The V8 is very responsive, specially with the new 8 speed tranny. I have not pushed the engine at all, until I hit 500 miles. Pat asked me not to use the cruise control for the first 500 miles.

Seats are firm but comfy. My buddy just bought a 2013 ML 350 and the seats are almost the same. The longest drive I did so far is 35 miles from the dealer to my house, and the seats were very comfy.

The new front grill looks a lot better in person. Not sure if it is due to the car being black.

Let me know if you guys have any questions.

Thanks
