My guess is that it was a tech screw up rather than a dealer trying to rip you off. Before accusing them, why not see what happens when you go back.

Re: Fiat/Chrysler/Jeep Recall 1.4 Million Vehicles Due to Hack

The odds of your vehicle being hacked are, at least for now, very very low.

However, the consequences could be much more severe than having a credit card compromised.

Re: Need more sidewall height on 22īs

Since the main reason most people go to 22s is appearance, and a taller sidewall minimizes the effect, your best option is probably going back to 20s.

Re: Break in and first service

Ask ten people and you will get 12 opinions. That's why Jeep gave you an owner's manual. Read it and follow the recommendations from the people who designed and built your vehicle. ;)

Re: Is the Dash actually Leather

Or you could reread MDBones' thread and note, like the owners manual, he recommends just a slightly damp soft cloth. Soap is a last resort.
