Judging by their quality ratings on all their other vehicles, I wouldn't be expecting the JL to be raising any standards.
So far I have to agree with this. A lot have said that the interior is too nice to get dirty. Maybe in the leather clad JLs but not a sport S. I am very happy with the JL, and I donít have high expectations with fit and finish. I just expect it to be durable and last.
Some things I do notice:
The door plastic panels are the same if not more plasticky than the JK. Which I also thought the JK 2012 interior was nice and an upgrade.
I am not afraid to get the interior dirty. Itís no different to me than the Plastic/vinyl JK interior.. it works for me. Easy to clean. The JL is a little more rubberized in spots like switches and and cup holders and cubbyís.
I go over a bump and sometimes my stereo turns off and resets. Gotta be a loose connection.. dealer found nothing, but this was before the big bump so Iíll keep an eye on it. In 3 months Iíve only had to reset the clock 4x. Iíd hate to take it back and have them f it up worse. I can inspect if if I decide to add my small sub from my jk.
The rear window tab on my soft top keeps popping off.. damn those bumps. The rear window is stitched and sewn in crooked, too. Maybe itís the culprit for the window tab popping off. But.. it doesnít leak, only in bad blowing snow does a little bit get in. Very little. Iíd hate for them to screw that up worse.
The rear window tab that pops in and holds the rear window in has lost its pop. The other one has still got it. But.. the window hasnít flown out yet. That Velcro really works.
Iíll just say so far I love this JL but itís a little quirky and I kind of like it. It isnít perfect she has it where it counts. I think Han Solo said something like that.
Oh one more. The rear seats when you fold them down. Press your palm down on them, and youíll feel like youíre playing a game of Trouble.
Also I swear to God I am not pressing the AC button.. but somehow I find itís lit.
