I'll (hopefully) taking delivery on my Limited in about a week and a half (it's supposed to roll off the assembly line tomorrow, and take about 10 days to get to the dealership). Any tips on what to check before driving off the lot? (E.g. Uconnect working, no holes in vacuum hose, cameras & sonar working, etc.) I'm wondering if anyone has noticed things a couple of weeks into ownership that they wish they had checked more closely while still on the lot.
Great idea for a thread, BrianK.
1- When I picked up mine the tires were overinflated to 49 psi. Many other forum members reported the same thing. They should be set to ~36 psi per the label inside the driver's door.
2- Your salesman is supposed to go through the entire vehicle with you. Mine took about an hour and he even went through all Uconnect settings screens.
3- If you get the vacuum option OR the spare tire option you should also get a REALLY nice MOPAR electric tire inflator with built-in tire sealant option.
4-There's a funnel in the back that you'll need if you ever have to add gas or gas additives from your own container. Get them to show you were it is stored.
5- If you get the vacuum option you also get a second hose and a crevice tool.
6- If you chose the vacuum option, you can still buy a spare tire for long trips to "the sticks" on-line for about $320 with shipping. The spare will actually fit in a Sto-n-go bucket.
7- One forum member noticed a crack in his windshield when he got home. I'm told the glass isn't under warranty. Just spend time looking at glass and paint before you drive away.
8- I always make the dealer fax or email me my closing paperwork a day or two before closing. I always find surprises in closing costs and they are never in my favor and I have walked out several times due to closing day surprises that were not previously discussed.
9- Are you a Sams Club member? There's a thread on this forum about incentives. I thought I made a terrific deal on mine after having several dealers bid drive out prices...but I still left about a grand on the table because I had not joined this forum before my closing.
10- If you decide to buy extended warranty search this forum FIRST for that subject before you add it on at the dealer. Damon helped a lot of us wrt how to get the same MOPAR extended warranty for A LOT less!
