I my dashboard installed incorrectly?

I may just be extremely picky, or just my German background demanding perfection, but I thought I would get that with a new vehicle. I think Chrsyler Co has jumped up leaps and bounds in quality, I'm really impressed. But I'm wondering if its just mine?






Shortly after I took possesion I noticed that the chrome and carbon fiber trim that surrounds the dash didn't line up with the doors. Since it was on both sides I figured the dashboard seemed to be installed too high. I had a 2011 Jeep GC Summit come to my shop and measured its dashboard against mine, and mine is higher by a 1/4 inch? I asked my friend who works at the plant for the 300's etc, and said it shouldn't be possible because of guide pins. I took it to the dealer and they said, "We can do it, but do you really want it go through all that trouble?" Heck ya, all the pictures I looked up, and GC I sat in before I placed my order were all perfectly lined up. I don't know, should I just live with it, or have it fixed?
And I not flaming my new truck, I aboslutely luv the thing!

Re: I my dashboard installed incorrectly?

Granted, when you plop down the jing on an SRT you do have an expectation of perfection. But that doesn't always happen in an imperfect world. Seriously, I wouldn't stress over it and I wouldn't have the dealer try to straighten it out for you. You may end up with something worse in the process... squeaks and rattles.

My trim is off a little bit on my Overland as well.

Yeah wow that would annoy the crap out of me. I know from experience, IP install and removal is a big pain in the ass, but if it's under warranty I'd do it. The chances of them damaging the IP if they have to remove it is pretty high so make sure you check it over for damage after repair.

If you want a vehicle with good quality control, you don't buy a Chrysler product.
