Letter from Chrysler about soft tops 2010-2011

I got a letter from Chrysler yesterday about possible pin holes forming in the soft top at the second and third roof bows.

We noticed ours about three weeks ago when we had passengers riding in the back seat that saw them. They were on both sides of the top. We didn't figure there was nothing we could do about it. After receiving the letter I called the dealer this morning and they all ready new my name was on the list. I carried it by there for them to look at and the new top has been ordered. They are replacing the top free of charge.

I guess I should give Chrysler a for doing this. Do any of you folks have the pin holes?? Has anyone else received the letter???

I've got a 2012 and I have found a few pin holes on mine (close to the stitching)...they are so clean it looks like a manufacturing defect

Did I say manufacturing defect??? I am absolutely certain those holes are strategically engineered into the 2012 soft top to relieve internal cabin pressure caused by the dilithium crystal power plant found in the 2012.
