So I am a new owner of a Rebel. Had a 2010 Laramie before this. No issues at all with it but fell in love with teh rebel so I got one. Well this one only issues so far. Have a crooked front bumper which my dealer can't seem to straighten out and what happens now? Go for a drive today in the rain in my less than a month old 2016 Rebel and it was raining in my truck!!! Water coming out of the driver side grab handle and water running down the inside of the windshield. Apperantly dealer has seen this before and has to order parts to fix it. Really less than 3000 km's on it and already this?

So far not a great taste in my mouth. Hope this is it.

Get your **** together FCA!!!!!

Oh god, i hope that's not common. My jeep leaked like crazy and after 18 attempts it was never fixed. I don't want to deal with this again

If they can't fix your leak then they should replace it with a new one. Not sure anything can be done for the slated bumper. I think another member complained about it too.

Stickerboy, my bumper was also crooked, out by about 1/2 in on one side. The dealer did repair but I found out they outsoutced the fix to a body shop. They will have to take the front bumper totally off and reinstall, most likely drill and align the holes/bolts.

I've mentioned this before but I also have two small holes and rust on my roof straight from the factory. Unfortunately have not been able to take it to the dealer since moving to Florida. Roof is wrapped temporarily until we can get it fixed. Also had a paint run about the size of a silver dollar on the rear passenger.

Well. I have the same issue, only mine is leaking from the passenger side grab handle. Had this happen on another truck and it was the sunroof drain. It goes to the dealer on 11/11, so I guess we'll see what they come up with.

Well I am gonna rip it off as soon as a winch bumper is available for it anyway so I am not super worried about it anymore. It is not as noticeable as it was before they tried, just not perfect :)

Add me to the column for driver side handle leak. Only once so far.

So far..

-Leak on driver side handle.
-LED Bed lights faulty.
-Incorrect headlights.
-incorrect bed cover.
-scratched/dinged door from the factory.

Pretty annoying considering it is a 54,500 sticker price.

To add to the list, the overhead console leaked water on me last week. I turned and slowed down and a stream of water landed on my pants. I really do love this truck, but what the ****.

I have not taken it to the dealer yet for all these issues, but I will shortly. Glad I haven't done a trip for each item.

FYI, NFAB makes a pretty sick front bumper, skid plate, and light bar set up. I think its about 1K for the bumper...if I remember right, it holds 2 40 inch light bars

At least everything should be covered by warranty. :D

I guess you're going to batch up those issues with your first service or planning to go before? I know for some folks doing multiple trips back and forth can be a headache.

Guys, beware. Read my 6 week experience post about mine leaking. This is a BIG problem for your Rebel. The drain tubes in my sunroof WERE connected and NOT kinked according to the service dept. They have NO explanation for why it flooded and when I say flooded, I mean flooded. They replaced the electronics from window switches and sunroof and may still replace the U-connect radio. Best case scenario for me is, I am still waiting on Chrysler corporate to call me back and I am requesting a new truck. I don't know if this will happen, but considering I have only been able to drive it about 4 weeks out of the 8 I have owned it, I think they need to compensate me somehow. Don't you guys? First issue was the gas tank. First time I tried to fill it up the pump kept shutting off like it was full. Took almost 30 minutes to fill the tank. That problem was with the breather valve in the tank and resulted in having to replace the entire fuel system. That took over 2 weeks, cause guess what? Yep, parts are not easy to come by for these things and are not on the shelves. Apparently they are not totally like the 1500's with just some cosmetic details. If yours is leaking, my advice is go to the dealer NOW! I'll keep you guys updated.

Good advice. I will get in in next week! Now that there is a recall added to it, I am just gonna drop it with the slew of issues.

Thanks!

Buddha,

I was wondering the same. I ordered mine without a sunroof so I could avoid the nightmare I went through with my wife's Chevy Traverse. Every time it rained we had gallons of water pouring out everywhere. It took them months to actually acknowledge it was a known issue and fix it right. I swore off sunroofs after that. Do all you guys experiencing the leak issue have sunroofs?
