Unrelated but wanted to share my sympathy
I am about to start a buy back process in my 2021 diesel with 2000 miles on

It’s been a nightmare and the dealership has put more miles on it trying to diagnose it then I have enjoying it

Jeep has major quality control issues
I wouldn’t recommend this brand to anyone
The new bronco release is going to destroy jeep
Well, Ford has it's own quality issues....I just sold my piece of crap raptor. leaking transfer case at 4k miles, front diff 18k miles, and transmission went slipping and banging at 20k miles.....went to two dealer 3 separate times and all just told me it's normal. To be honest, both brand sucks...

So 15% on the front was a good match for what comes from the factory?
My guy recommended 20% on mine (to match factory rears). Check your state's laws to make sure whatever you get is legal.

Ohio law is nothing darker than 50% VLT on front side windows and nothing darker than 70% VLT on the windshield.

Yep. Just traded in a 2019 Mustang GT after owning a 2015 Mustang GT, wife has a 2018 Eco vert. Ford is no better overall. Go spend some time on the Mustang forums and you'll see the same things.

retired due to broken back
After 3 weeks of my dealership trying to get the battery replaced, and Jeep corporate insisting that they change cheaper modules, they have finally escalated my case to get the full EV battery replaced. I drove the car for 24 hours before the light came on, barely put 40 miles on the clock. It's been at the dealer now for 30 days and Stellantis is trying to decide what to do if I keep the vehicle. They said I could get a full repurchase, but I would lose the NY state tax and have to wait another 30 days. They also said I could replace the vehicle, but that would also take 30 days and the lost 2 months of my lease would not be compensated. So waiting for a fix, and hoping FCA or Stellantis do the right thing for my lost expense of 2 months of the lease, is the best I can hope for. I truly hope that more publicity goes into this poorly release electric vehicle. I'm seeing a lot of check engine issues on the forums with this 4xe.
I went through the NJ Lemon law and received every penny that I put out on my Jeep including any extended warranties or protective coatings or tire and rim warranty (I did not have any but was assured that I would have been reimbursed if I did)

Why do you not receive the tax back? I know every state is different, NY has a cap on what dealer fee`s can be charged, it`s a rock solid $75.00 and in NJ it is all over the place $500-$1000

Why not receive a rental on their dime until your new one come in if you choose that route? Isn't that what Jeep Cares is about????

When in doubt, seek a lawyer out, who knows if what they are telling you is even legal? I have never seen a dealer lean towards the buyer, even though all of the cost is on Jeep. Depends on your relationship with your dealer.

Just say it was a 40 mile test drive and let them sell it as a CPO

I bought a 18 Raptor after Jeep left such a bad taste in my mouth after the wandering steering issue and the BS that it was a Jeep thing even after 2 new steering box`s and several software updates.
Ford and GMC share pretty much the same transmission that is manufactured by Allison, I had reprogramed my shift points to have it actually work correctly and that was a Ford software issue

So my issue was with the Cam Phasers like a lot of other Raptor tt3.5`s.......nightmare
So now because of the ponies hat the Raptor had under the hood especially after tuning it I am hooked.
I have a 392 Rubicon coming in any day now and my fingers are crossed.

I’m dealing with the same issue here. Jeep is driving fine but they can’t get the CEL to turn off. The second time I took it in, they said the only remedy would be to replace the hybrid battery pack... it will probably be going back when I get my other car next week. I can’t afford to be without it right now.
