Picked up my new 2011 Jeep unlimited Sahara earlier 2nd week of June.
Excited and thrilled is an understatement, I smiled all the way home!
My fun ended the next morning, heading out have lunch with my new fiance she says to me the floor is soaking wet. I pull over pull the mat and carpet up to see 1/2 inch or so of standing water. To top it all off the two front bolts on the passenger seat are not even screwed down! (see pics).
Pissed off was an understatement, my girl got me to calm down since there is no point in going bonkers as that will only make matters worse.
I bought my Jeep in Orlando but I live in Tampa so its not practical to go to the selling dealer. I opted to take it to Jerry Ulm Dodge in Tampa.
I dropped the Jeep off and got it back in the same shape except for numerous blobs of black silicon crap on various body panels.
Several days passed and the floor was dry only now I had two drip leaks behind my head.. <sigh>.. Figuring that maybe it was just water trapped in the molding I waited until another hard rain to make sure it was leaking.
Another hard raing came and poof, the floor was soaking wet again.
Round 2 ... I took it back on Monday to Jerry Ulm Dodge in Tampa. When I dropped my Jeep off it was relatively clean. When the lot porter pulled my truck around it looked like someone ran it through some big muddy/sandy puddles plus the interior was filthy. It was closing time so I didnt have time to talk with anyone. When I got home I started cleaning the Jeep only to find my roof panels have calcified stains on it ! (see pic, the stains are all over the top) I know they were not there when I dropped it off as I had cleaned the jeep the day before. To make matters worse I found some nice scratches on inner painted part of my door.... but wait there is more.. My drivers running board looks like a dog nawed on it.
What I am guessing is the repair guy stood on my running board in work boots and ran some chemical or water solution over the top looking for leaks. How he treated my NEW Jeep is really disappointing, you would have thought I handed the keys over to to 20 year old beater. I just bought the damn thing, is it too much to ask that you dont beat up a new car?!
After the first leak I refrained from making a post, even though I should have ranted.. Having standing water in a brand new vehicle with 100 miles is not cool plus the seat not being bolted is totally unacceptable not to mention someone could have been killed had I gotten in wreck.
