Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I can not describe my utter disappointment with the fit and finish of my brand new 2014 $80,000 Jeep GC SRT. Even my 4 year old picked up the issue. This is the worst Quality Control/Assurance system I ever experienced. What worries my even more is what I can not see!!!!!???

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

You said this yesterday in the other thread, and I wasn't going to say anything bc I felt like MAYBE you deserved to voice your dissatisfaction. However, posting the same exact complaint in this, the SRT "Features and Changes" thread is unnecessary.

1.) Bc it's not relevant to the topic.

2.) Your claim of basically, we built you some junk, doesn't correlate with what the masses have said about their purchases, even aside from the SRTs.

3.) Having JUST recieved your Jeep, you haven't even given Chrysler/your dealer a chance to blow you off abt doing something abt the console (it looks like), to justify being this mad.

4.) Why'd you even buy it if you think it's poorly built? What else is screwed up?... Should the console look like that? Hell no. But it is one of 1200 built that day, and all of em can't be perfect. Nor can EVERYTHING be caught.. It's just not realistic. For the package that the SRT is, if you demand perfection, you should expect to pay twice as much across town with a competitor.. Who doesn't build 1200 cars a day.

I'm not saying you don't have the right to want things to be correct, but shit happens! Give them a chance to rectify the issue(s) before you draw a conclusion.. Or better yet, ASK around here, there, and everywhere, what other new owners think about the cars and maybe you'll conclude that it's not a knock on overall quality, so much as it is one bad console.. Again, it happens.

Lastly, again, bc I'm sure you won't like any of what I just said.. Why did you even buy it? To complain?.. Assuredly you test drove it and inspected it before signing.. I mean after all, if you expect the car to be perfect, surely you are too! God forbid you missed it in YOUR inspection too!!!.. Or even worse, YOU FORGOT to check it out beforehand!???

Sorry if I used the wrong thread. I could not start a new thread. I just don't have the option.

Thank you for your understanding. And valuble comments. I was looking forward for a quality Product and the photos Clearly explains it. Yes I do expect a quality worth $80,000 don't you? I am assuming we should get what we paid for.

Yes I did see it immediately it is just too obvious. The issue is that in Manitoba we will have an increase in our sales taxes on 1st of July. so either I take it as is or I pay yet another almost $1000 more in taxes when it is "repaired".

"shit happens" is never a good approach to quality assurance. If I use this term in my line of work I will be in Jail.

If u paid half that amount and got such quality, would you be happy about it? I am not here to insult anyone. However, I would expect suggestions to improve not criticising reality and facts demonstrated by photos.

Thanks again for taking the time to respond. Each one of us have the right to express opinions based on our experiences and this is mine.

First time and last time I would ever buy a Jeep.. never ever againnnnnnnnnnnnn..
I had a similar fit issue on my 2014 Summit. Fixed it myself. I've noticed that 8 out of 10 WK2's have poor fitment on the center console. It doesn't speak well for Chryslers Quality Control.

How difficult can it be to get that correct????

Gotcha.. My point wasn't, "hey shit happens, suck it up!" But rather, hey, sorry your car isn't perfect, but please hold back judgement until you have a chance to see what kind of service your $70k gets you. Perfection evades us all, but it's what gets done in the absense of perfection that we should judge by.

I could go into how the console come pre assembled and blah blah blah, but that doesn't change anything from your perspective. Again, all I can say is notify those who CAN do something about it, and if they don't handle it to your satisfaction, THEN bitch us out.

Thanks for all who commented and for taking the time to write again. I picked up the SRT late on Friday and It is a long weekend here in Manitoba. My dealer asked me to come back on Tuesday to try to sort it out.

As I said earlier, it is not my intention to insult anyone but only to provide feedback and maybe to vent as well. I waited so long for the SRT to arrive and I was so disappointed when I seen the obvious issue.

On a positive note, the best music ever is one made by 470 horses with a launch control. The Redline is so gorgeous and is attracting so much attention. My summer car is a 911 C4S and it is been sitting in the garage since Friday evening .

Will report back on the fix.

Srt hotline is not available for us to use in Canada. I have phoned it a couple of times and each time the person on the other end told me that I have to phone Chrysler Canada, as they are not able to do anything with Canadian calls.

Update 7/02/2013 - Regarding the Torque Black Laguna Leather Seats - these will become Standard on the SRT. Don't have a changeover date, and it's *possible* that a price increase will be implemented. The Laguna Sepia seats will continue to be optional.

Note: 2014 SRT Euro models will all have the Torque Black Laguna Leather Seats (in production now).
