Re: Just a random thought

Ive had my 06 in one time for warranty...the passeneger mirror...and that was my fault after all was said and done.(I put SRT door panels on my Jeep and didnt switch the drivers door harness out) So in reality....I havent had one single warranty claim on my Jeep. I did have the TCM reprogrammed under a TSB....and that was it.

Re: Just a random thought

Never had a single issue with my '08 with 53k miles.

Unless you want to count a blown light bulb.

Back to the concern with the 2nd shift.
Let's just put it this way, training lasted for *weeks*.

I think everything, in regards to quality will be OK.

They are NOT playing around anymore. Don't like it? There's the door. And if they don't like you, then you won't be coming back the next day.

Personally, I'd rather have a 2nd shift 2011 WK than a 1st shift WK.

BTW: The manufacturing facility is NOT all new. It's the same dang factory that all Grand Cherokees have come out of since 1992.

Re: Just a random thought

I worked for years as a dealership mechanic. I can tell you guys this-- there is no doubt that first year vehicles are back in the shop for warranty repairs more than second year vehicles. I've seen it over and over again.

And as the generation continues, they tend to get even more reliable with less repairs.

I agree. I've purchased a number of '1st year' vehicles, the most recent the '11 GC. Competition for market share in the automotive industry has driven up vehicle quality standards. It would be fatal error if a company introduces a lemon in the first year, or any year for that matter.
