Re: Sit-Rep.. 2012 Summit Steering Wheels

In my opinion the steering wheel issue is inexcusable. Incoming Quality Control and outgoing Quality Control are not doing their jobs. The supervisors are also not doing their jobs.
In my opinion, there should be changes in quality control. If people will not change, then the department and the supervisor should be fired.
On my 2008 Rubicon Unlimited (since sold), it was shipped in with the wrong rear bumper. Also started to rust with under 700 miles. Three MyGig radios replaced in two months. Thought Fiat had these types of problems solved.
Will still order a 2012 Overland, but this also gives me an uneasy feeling.
In addition businesses that I manage might cut back on anticipated Jeep Orders until Fiat gets the Jeep House in order.

I guess I know where the right steering-wheels went. BTW, does your "wrong" steering-wheel has 4 rings and paddle-shifters? Hahahaha....

Re: Sit-Rep.. 2012 Summit Steering Wheels

As a consultant, one of the things I do is make companies better.
With the current emphases on quality, 6 Sigma, Waterfall Methodologies, SWOT, Services Oriented Analysis, etc, find it hard to accept some companies are doing this. I would not accept this.
In the past, some of my clients have been Intel, General Motors, Fidelity Investments. Honeywell, Johnson & Johnson, Amgen Pharmaceuticals, Wells Fargo, US Army, IRS, etc.

Am sure there are many competitors to Jeep that are working hard to make sure they do not have these problems!

Re: Sit-Rep.. 2012 Summit Steering Wheels

Is it possible that the designers changed their minds and decided that the brown wood wheel matches the top half of the dash, while the black leather bottom matches the lower dash?

Don't get me wrong... I'm still pissed about this and hope to God that mine arrives with the correct black olive ash wheel.

x2, mine will be arriving soon. I have yet to decide what I will do but the dealer is well aware of the issue. Time will tell.
