Issues concerning 2012 Jeep SRT 8....
 
Hi all,

Just purchased a Jeep SRT 8 2 weeks ago and have issues concerning the car,

1- the carbon fibre on which the start button is located came off!!
2- whenever I shift from D to P or from D to R a sound occurs!!!
3- the reverse camera screen is blurry and not clear..

I used to own an Audi Q7 2008 model before this car and things were fine, 2 weeks for the Jeep and issues are starting to arise!!!

I am from the middle east so please bear that in mind whenever u guys suggest something.... Oh before I forget, the dealership here is "trash" so that's an issue as well...

Some of the Carbon Fiber pieces had a bad round of glue for them, so I have read on here. I would just have the dealer order a new one.

The clunk sound shifting in-between gears is normal and it seems mine has become not as loud after gettting a few miles on the truck.

Check your reverse camera and make sure the lens is not dirty, I bet it is.

Hey there, Mabrook on the new SRT8.

1-The CF had some issues and the dealer should repair it ( u could find ppl in the forums who live in cold climate and had the same problem).

2-sound you get from the transmission well get better ..

3- clean the lens

4- check your bumper and fenders, the could pop or even get lose.

Jules,

I had the clunk sound when shifting. It was most noticeable after driving it and then going from drive to neutral. I had the dealer fix it using the (Technical Service Bulletin) TSB 21-010-12 Thread about it: Transmission clunks when shifting to park - Jeep Garage - Jeep Forum Good Luck!

i hope u r not from kuwait, as the dealership will denies everything wrong with your vehicle and try to convince you that you made an accident which caused the problem

always make a mess then dealership will get friendly
make sure there is no clunking in the rear when driving auto or snow as it is a very common problem :)
