Talking Somebody pinch me....Picked up my Jeep SRT8 today (UPDATED 12/21 with pics)

So far its awesome!

I didn't get to drive it much so I will post my thoughts after a few days of ownership.


I do have some slight bad news...there is a stain on the dash that the dealership tried and tired to get out but couldn't....needless to say they had to order a whole new dash. Also the front fender flare on the drivers side passenger wheel well was delivered in the backseat. It is current just clipped on because all the adhesive is dried up. They ordered a new one of those too.

Its all cosmetic...no mechanical issues. - I will post pics soon.

I called Jeep Customer Care first thing this morning to tell them that it is unacceptable to take delivery of a $60000 car after its been sitting in "QUALITY CONTROL" :roll eyes: for almost 5 months and the fender flare wasn't attached properly, there was a stain on the dash and I did not receive my racing pedal covers. I have a case number and a case manager will be contacting me tomorrow to resolve the situation and make sure I am 100% satisfied.
*Representative on the phone said that it IS unacceptable and that the SRT8's are gone over with a fine tooth comb.


The green spots are a stain that is unremovable

Fender flare misaligned

Fender flare pulling away...adhesive not strong enough

Re: Somebody pinch me....Picked up my Jeep SRT8 today

Nice, congrats! Glad to hear they're dealing with it promptly and properly. Customer Service is big in any industry but in this case, paying $60,000 & the NEW service standards should be enough to make sure it's dealt with properly. Look forward to your initial review and some pictures/videos

Re: Somebody pinch me....Picked up my Jeep SRT8 today

Great looking vehicle! Glad to hear it was worth the wait, I feel the same way. Did want to ask your opinion on something - Does the exhaust outlet on the passenger side seem low? I noticed that it seems to be at the same level that mine is and I am considering asking my dealer to see it it can be adjusted to line up better.
