Instrument Cluster Crack

Just looked down at my 4 week old JKU and see a small crack starting on the bottom of the instrument cluster. Looks like it started under the dash.

This will be my 3rd warranty claim in 4 weeks. 1st was the rear soft top window, second was the leather on the steering wheel.

There will also be a 4th. The weather seal on the tailgate is splitting at the top corner.

That is a lot of issues for a new vehicle. Just curious if this is common?

I would have to say "no", and that I am sorry you're experiences these things.

Though, many of us have different opinions on what constitutes a serious enough problem to require a repair, vs what is too minor to really worry about. Take a Wrangler off-roading a few times, and it will start accumulating wear&tear, here and there.

I agree that after a few months it will have its share of bumps and bruises. But I want to be the one to put them their.

Local dealer is fixing everything anyway. New speedo lens and weatherstripping ordered for Friday.

What was wrong with your speedometer lens?
