Default New Rubicon Record?


Picked up my new Rubicon today.

So now we have two Wranglers.
Picked up new the car with 21klms on the clock, at 40klms the engine check light came on so back to the dealers. Apparently an O2 sensor is kuput and they don't have one in stock.
Is this the lowest K's ever before needing warranty work? Can anyone beat that?

Mine went back to the dealership after about 50ish km's on the clock, same deal, the wiring to the O2 sensor was the problem for me, less than 10mins and they had it sorted and no issues since *touch wood*

Just quietly I seen quite a few vehicles come off the truck with engine lights on or some other need for warranty work before the customer even knows the vehicle is at the dealer. Not just Jeep.
And you all thought we don't do anything on a pre-delivery inspection

Aint that the truth mate . mostly little non serious stuff but every now and then you will get one that just blows you away & you think HTF did that get passed for shipment , o2 sensors are pretty common as the salt gets them on the way over on the boat

they don't have one in stock.

so does any Jeep dealer have one in stock so they can speed up the return of your new car back to you??? as part of good customer service blah blah....

or will they order one for themselves and make you wait months for its arrival. (what ever happened to using an Express Postage bag for this urgent type of delivery??)

Did they give you a timeframe?

My Bluetooth didn't work at pick up. I think it had about 25km on the clock. Warranty work, needed some part replaced. Took 1 week to come in...
