Re: New Summit with Glass Problems

If the spots are in the outer surface try Bar Keepers Friend. I had a similar problem on another vehicle I recently purchased & this was the only thing that worked. Mix it into a paste and apply like a rubbing compound, then rinse off.

Re: New Summit with Glass Problems

Hi guys - thianks for the great feedback - this is our 6th Grand Cherokee and by far the nicest. All the ideas are great. I think I'll start with the dealer in the morning. The car is less than 2 weeks old and they have already worked on it once. For sure I will be suggesting what is mentioned here. The 2 front windows are the worst but all of them have the issue. The rig sat in the North West since last March. Tomorrow is the perfect day to take it up to the dealer as the forecast is for a bright sunny day.

That is the plan - to replace all the glass - right now I'm going thru all the approval stuff. They had to send photos to Jeep. They sent the rig to a glass shop and they could do nothing - since its smooth to the touch it has to be in the glass. The moon roof appears to have no issues. It is all the windows and the mirrors that have the issue. Paint and chrome is perfect. I'm guessing this happened at the plant or during shipment. No one noticed as you can only see this in direct sun light.

Re: New Summit with Glass Problems

It has to be in the vinyl between the glass then.

Re: New Summit with Glass Problems

If the lamination is the problem, as Scott suggests, then we are going to hear more about this soon from other buyers I'm afraid.

Yikes! I hope this doesn't become common like the crooked steering wheels.

Yeah, this needs to be documented so hopefully Jeep will eventually look into and possibly figure it out.

Yes - I know of one other owner on another site. Jeep replaced his side window. His looked exactly like mine. He has shared the dealer name with me. My Guess this was a while back that this problem occurred. Perhaps something happened in the curing process while the glass was being delivered. I would guess that Jeep uses just in time manufacturing so the glass is shipped pretty much in step with the build time on the assembly lines.

Yep - I'm parking it and waiting - this rig is new and they must fix it. Spotted the weirdness with the windows as we were driving home. We've put about 500 miles on it and 200 of that was going back and forth to the dealer. They kind of implied at first that I did this with a buffer and I said exactly how did I do something like this to the glass? Everyone is nice and all but I'm getting inpatient then again after all it is a new $59K Rig.

Funny - Our steering wheel was also crooked and they did an alignment to correct it.
