My 21’ and my sisters early build date 18’ have no issues as of yet and where we live it’s always raining and extremely humid. The jeeps are kept outside.
Hopefully some of us are spared

I dont. Youre on a forum. Youll see the worst of the worst here.

Yeah, I don't stand out so much here. Not like that subaru forum. How the hell do you get a preemptive ban? I hadn't used any pronouns yet.

My only paint problems on my ‘18 OB JLUR are from rocks and over eager dogs. I was over every inch of it yesterday buffing scratches and didn’t see a single bubble.

Just noticed this on my hood today. Not that it’s a big deal now, but In 2-3 years it will be. 2018 with 19k miles, and garage kept through and not drive in winter.

Great!!! Going to run to the dealer tomm to see what they say. Sadly, I thinks it only 36 mos warranty from delivery right? My 36 mos was up 4/20!! Uggg.

I did my 2021 Jlur Willies at 250 miles it had 5 hinges including one on the hood. There were a multiple other problems including a steering issues could stay in a lane on the highway without retesting with it the deakers fix didn’t work of course! At the prices they charge no vehicle should have this low quality it’s not just the paint. They can’t even get aluminum paint, manual transmissions or steering right. FCA is A disaster I went back to a 4Runner. I wanted to love the Jeep but the dealers were douches so I said fuck it. Yes it’s a lot more common than people think it’s highly probable the paint problem will be over 80 percent within a few years. Untill FCA really fixes this i won’t touch another FCA product. Such poor quality for such high prices and we seem to just take it. So disgusted.

I just discovered paint bubbling on my rear gate hinge last weekend while washing the jeep. Bunch of BS. My 2012 did the same thing on passenger side door hinges.

The dealer told me to take to my cousins Body shop and the repairs would be covered under warranty. At least I know the job will be done right.

F-ing Jeep, 8 years and they still cant get their hinge corrosion issues figured out.

Just picked mine up from the dealer this week after having hood and both pass doors painted. They did a good job. Paint looks great, but is ever so lightly a shade lighter. Honestly, the only way I can tell is while wearing my brown lens polarized sunglasses.
They did tell me I was the last claim Mopar approved, and they have denied over 2 dozen since approving mine.

We’ve owned 4 JL’s, with the miles ranging anywhere from 20,000 - 35,650, so far none with paint bubbles that I’ve seen.
