    You’ve had nothing but issues with that JL. Better sell that thing to me.

    Weird timing for this one... I just dropped my keys in the overnight box and left my jeep at the dealership 30 minutes ago for this same problem

    I went in to have both rear seat latches replaced. While in there they actually broke the tab on the rear defrost or maybe they thought they did?? Either way it took a week to get in. At least I got a free rental out of it

    This problem is more common than I thought! Would love to hear about your dealer experience...

    This ^^^ The tab breaking off is just another quality issue added to my long list of issues with the JL. The biggest issue is the dealer can't look at it for almost four weeks. "Who knows how long it will be before it can get fixed."

    Oh well, it's still a fun vehicle to drive!

    I love them, but for damned near $50k, you’d think they’d be built a little better. Maybe it’s my age, that makes me think that’s a lot of money, but damn!

    Thanks for the info. I may eventually have to go this route when the tab on the replacement glass breaks off.

    LOL! Not surprised the part is on backorder. If they question the sanded look on the grid, I will definitely ask them to look at other JLs on the lot! Thanks for the tip!
