Lynskey Subscribed. Where's my check?

Actually I am bringing mine in today at noon for the 30 day complimentary check in. I'll ask if they know anything about it...

This is fairly common. Most manufacturers, including Subaru, would prefer to just junk the cars. These were like brand new, in perfect working order with less than 100 miles on them when they were crushed. The blue one was an STi.

acsteele Sounds like a great deal for you, and a proactive move on Chryslers part!

A good paint shop should have no trouble with this.
They should always check the shade of the paint on the actual vehicle against the paint they will be using. After a couple of years all paint fades with weather so they should be matching the actual vehicle. Have you ever seen jobs done where they used the original colour on a panel of an older car . . . it sticks out like a sore thumb.

halo216 They are paying people to buy drive jeeps is all i got from this.
02-03-2012 02:13 AM
alknope so they let you know that your paint might be off a little and hand you a check no problem with out you bugging them, but if you get a lemon you gotta fight like it's WW1 to get anything. strange how things work.

just sayin

That's actually Chrysler's technical jargon for re-painting them in Crush... which is almost as bad as destroying them.
02-02-2012 06:39 PM
ikeymay no idea when it was built, though i spoze i could find out. 166 of the bad batchers were caught at the factory. i dont know how many made it out to dealerships, but from what i understand, some that made it to dealerships were caught there and got shipped back to be (dammit!) crushed. alledgedly, 23 made it into the hands of consumers. some will no doubt be traded for "correct" dozer jk's (if i had 5k or more hard miles on mine, i maybe woulda went that way). i wonder how many will be in circulation this time next year? :-)
02-02-2012 03:09 PM
M5ivan My Dozer was built at the same time and was caught at the factory before it left. It never made it out of "Final Inspection". They a built a new one within a week and it should be at my dealership on Monday. If the paint looked the same, I'd have taken the 3k cash! Good for you
02-02-2012 03:04 PM
AXman i can see that. But a snap shot may be more accurate due to fading from UV and other enviromental stuffs.

This.

judofish Do you have any idea when your Dozer was built? I too have a Dozer that I got in December. I'm wondering if I'm in that group.

AXman Take the 3k and have fun with that. If you like the color as is why swap it out.

looks like dozer. lol! i was told "more than ten tints" go into the recipe for dozer. one tint got left out of this batch. i can tell you that me and two other people looked at mine right next to another dozer jk in direct sunlight and couldn't tell the difference.
