Help with leak PLEASE

I have had my 2011 to the dealer 7 times for the same leak since I bought it 2 months ago. Not only have they not been able to fix the leak, I now have a new leak. I am over this wrangler. I need info from someone that has dealt with a buy back situation.

I live in Kentucky but I bought the vehicle in Indiana so I'm not exactly sure which law to research. I got a heck of a deal on it and I am worried I will not find that deal again!! I also had the dealer install a factory hard top and I do not want to be out the money for it. I absolutely love it and I want to purchase another wrangler.

It is a water leak every time it rains. The first leak is coming in around the front passenger door. They have replaced seals, aligned door, modified seals, etc etc 7 times. The new leak is running down the column that the driver seatbelt is attached to. I'm ok with a drip here and there, but I'm not going to have water standing on the floorboard of my brand new vehicle. Sooo frustrated!

Unfortunately, I don't think leaks are covered in most states lemon laws. Not saying your state doesn't have protection from something like this, check with a lawyer, but your state may not either.

Escalate the problem to corporate? There have been several reported problems with JK tops not sealing in various threads.

I have had a case file open with Chrysler this while time. I called Chrysler directly after the second time to the dealer.

wow. 7 times is 4 times too many! maybe the dealer is not up to par? i know there was a recall i believe got mailed out to owners affected with a bad passenger door seal. for 2011 i believe. usually found a pool of water on the passenger side floor.

Mine leaked "BRAND NEW" and I didn't goto the dealer, matter of fact I haven't seen the dealer for anything after 3 yrs--anyway, here's what I did to mine-

I adjusted both UPPER door hinges IN 1/16"--

On the PASSENGER "T" top--OUTSIDE LEADING/TRAILING CORNER, on the longitudinal edge only I put 4" of window/door adhesive sealing foam--1/2" wide-

------------------------------NO LEAKS, even with the magic wand pressure hose-

Now it might not work for you, it works for me-just like suspension, every jeeps "A Little Different"-

Good luck

JIMBO

Thank you for the suggestions. I too bought this jeep "brand new". It appears I may be better off trying to figure it out on my own.

+1 for the foam weather stripping. Cheap fix for the leak in the upper corner of my drivers door.

Mine has been in the shop 6 times and is still leaking. They have replaced the header bar, door seals, new top, re-adjusted the doors, and yet after all that it still leaks at the drivers side A-Pillar and behind the passenger side B-Pillar. Foam inserts and seals and new top have my worked so I sent a certified letter to Chrysler on Friday informing them that I am pursuing lemon law case. I live in NC but bought the Jeep in VA. The lemon laws of the state you bought the vehicle in, are the requisite laws you need to follow.
