Now I know why my Jeep was "Selected for Quality Inspection"

Found this underneath the rear seats when looking for a friend's wallet:



Guess that's what my 12 day delay was!!

LOL.. Don't mean to laugh, but man, you would think you would want to get rid of the evidence

Well, at the very least, I would hold onto that, just in case it happens again.

Re: Now I know why my Jeep was "Selected for Quality Inspection"

Hmm, maybe I should look under my seats for one that says "Sunroof leaks." I was chosen for the special inspection as well and was hoping that nothing was wrong. Only major problem I've had is the sunroof has poured in water a couple times after a heavy rain. Took it to the dealer after the first incident and got the standard "We were unable to replicate the problem" response... It's happened once since then and if it wasn't kept in the garage at night, it probably would have happened more times.

Re: Now I know why my Jeep was "Selected for Quality Inspection"

Hold on guys, First off Special Inspections are also a random sampling that happens. Yes vehicles get caught with issues and get put over there but also these tests are a simple "Pass" or "Fail" and if it fails that means it gets fixed... if a few fail they look at the issues.

Fail Could be that it did not go up and down in the elapsed time. I was in a summit that did this a couple of times when it was first delivered to the dealer and then it went away completely, there was nothing wrong, it just needed a couple of cycles.

If it happened to me probably was an issue on a few units and may have required further testing. Because something failed does not mean it was faulty or that anything was replaced but the test parameters say it failed.

Anyway this is just a Theory from other situations I have seen. Just saying to the OP that there is a very good chance this means nothing. Inspection and testing takes a while and anything that isn't "right" means further inspection. This is how quality gets improved.... Not saying there may not have been an issue but it was taken car of before it left JNAP, so don't worry about it (Personally for mechnical stuff like that I would rather them fix it anyway, they know way more about the system than any dealer).

This sounds a lot like the old folklore about a guy who bought a Ferrari, and kept noticing a rattle from the back of the car--one that no mechanic could find.

After an accident, during the repair, the body shop tech found a tin with pebbles and a note in it: "So you finally found it, you rich capitalist pig"

..... planning a total Jeep scavenger hunt this weekend for similar notes...

As the OP, I'm not concerned whatsoever. If there was a problem, they fixed it. Just thought it was good for a laugh...

Re: Now I know why my Jeep was "Selected for Quality Inspection"

I would mention it to your service manager, so they're aware you know about it, then keep an eye on the suspension. I agree with Willx, you don't really know what was wrong. I doubt Jeep will tell you either.

Just after I purchased my Subaru (my first actually NEW car) I brought it in for it's first oil change and noticed they put 10 miles on the odometer when I got it back. Then I noticed a note n the passenger seat with directions on where they went to lunch.

If my memory is right, I read a similar story in either Car and Driver or Road and Track. Except that they were union workers at Ford during the 70's.
