Has anyone had an HID lamp blow? My drivers side is out already...
2012 Summit owners: What color is your steering wheel?
Mine is the color of last years Overland (not the Summits dark)

Re: Just got her home 2 questions

I guess it could happen to any car but my HID build blew and the dealer ordered a new one. Sucks to have a car one day and and drive around with one light out but I'm sure I'll get over it.

Yes, I would be disappointed as well.

Re: Just got her home 2 questions

WTF you have a one day old car with a burned out HID bulb and a completely wrong steering wheel? LOL says a lot about Jeep. How in the hell could this thing possibly get through final inspection and the entire assembly process? oh boy

The car left the factory with working headlights. The drivers side blew on my way home.

Re: Just got her home 2 questions

Sorry Buckeye, presume that your dealer will square you away with new HID and correct wheel. Jeebus, is the wood wheel really a different color from the black Summit dash trim? Hope all else is good. Saw a MG Summit yesterday, it was very sharp.

Re: Just got her home 2 questions

The wheel is bizarre... it should have been caught before leaving the factory. The HID lamp is just infant mortality; that one was bad from the supplier, and there isn't much that can be done about it but replace it.

"infant mortality" = appropriate label. Most components with electronic sub-assemblies are likely to be very reliable--at least the electronic parts. But, if they are going to fail, they are likely to do so very early. I'd guess that's what happened here, and that the replacement should last a good old time.
