Re: Steering wheel horn misalignment - new purchase

A request to see the PSI paperwork might be in order. PDI fees are fine, as long as the dealer lets someone actually inspect the vehicle.

Re: Rejected Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Delivery

Why can't we expect the same quality as Benz, built in the same plant, on the same line as m class?

I would have a think about listening too closely to your service manager, could be costly.

Re: New Jeep Concepts from Moab

when you're making them flat out to keep up with demand, you don't want to add odd ball special editions, it messes up your supply chain.

Re: Next generation JGC MY2017?

chrysler/fiat are likely trying to figure out how to improve on the WK2 with the likelihood that they can't jump on MB coat tails this time around.

Re: Got my new 2014, didn't make it home!

Remember to ask yopur salesman the purpose of the (likely) $600 pre deliver inspection.

$600 gives them 4 or 5 hours of shop time to make sure your car is OK.

Re: Ink on '14 Door Panel

i know you said you tried rubbing alcohol, but double check you had 99% stuff, 70% is commonly sold and has too much H2O.

Rainx is about 99.99% alcohol, might be worth a try.
