    I’m just a hobby welder, learned a lot from the collective wisdom here over the years and appreciate your input. Dropped it off at the dealer this morning to get the ball rolling.

    bottom left, looks the weld missed on material deposition. THere is evidence of heat input, but not much filler. Might just be the angle of the photo though.

    I think those welds qualify this vehicle as a lemon and you should not have to accept these issues. Since it is new and the problem has been acknowledged, I would return it and demand my money back.

    I posted up some Tesla frame welds from one of their showroom chassis a year or two back. Looked worse than that.

    Woulda worked too, BUT they got BUSTED.

    What is the manufacturer doing to provide a substitute vehicle while they look at the one you're paying for sit on the lot?
    That's why I dont drive merkin made garbage.I had the dishonor of owning a couple of mid seventies pieces of junk and two 90's models of Grand Cherokee with the super mountain packages etc. Absolute garbage. Take a creeper and roll all over the lot and look at that junk. " Low financing ! Early pre 2019 models at X%" No down payment required. No payments until after Christm..... I mean end year holidays
    Japan ran the US over with every single thing they produce many decades ago. The Chinese are getting close with the Great Walls and the Koreans with the Hyundai. We made the worlds greatest EVERYTHING, at one time.Then greed killed it all

    I often wonder what we would be driving here today if the Japanese cars hadn't shown up to create some competition for the US auto industry.
