Angry Center console storage bin broke already?

I don't have 5000 miles on my new 2013 Jeep Wrangler, and already the lid buttons to the center console storage bin are sprung. The buttons will only open the shallow tray, but not the deep well. The reason is it appears that the spring that brings the latch back is sprung.

In 1974, after nothing but trouble with American cars, I swore I'd never own another, but 6 months ago a took a chance on the Jeep. This issue is very typical of the many issues the American cars of the late 60s and 70s had. Everything seemed to break on the interior in no time.

Now that I've got THAT off my chest.... anyone else have this issue yet?

Thanks!

Mine is perfect after approximately 1500 uses. At least it's still under warranty. Jeep's have their quirks but they have sooooo many other features that make up for any "blemishes."

No... not a troll. A new Jeep owner who hopes he didn't make a mistake. I bought the car last Jan. I'm retired, and in the Spring & Summer, I ride my motorcycle. That's why the low miles. My last car was a year old and only had 5000 miles when I traded it in on the Jeep.

If I drive the Jeep more, who knows what might break next?

Here's a photo of the issue. I don't see a way to remove the latches, so I guess I'll have to go to the dealer. I have a feeling that you're going to see a lot of this issue.

Mine is quirky too but hasn't broken (hopefully it won't). The Jeep platform is awesome and I can see why the loyalty is so fierce but the fit/finish leaves a lot to be desired considering the price.

Mine can be a bit touchy at times as well.
