Front Bumper

Did anyone else's dealership force the front license plate screws into the bumper, creating ungodly holes? I took of the plate off last night and all I could think of was MORONS

Left a message for the saleslady....someone needs to be replacing something

'07 Compass -> I apologize to the next owner.

When we lived in South Carolina we purchased a new Durango R/T. In SC you dont need a front license plate and when we test drove the R/T it did'nt have anything on the front bumper. After we signed papers and they pulled it around for us it had a front license plate holder with one of their advertisement plates. The first thing I did when I got home was take it off, I already gave them quite a bit of money, its not my job to advertise for them too. Same deal though, two very large holes made by self tapping bolts in my bumper. I went back up there and went round and round with the manager who said they do that on all their vehicles. Never got it resolved to my satisfaction but then we moved back home to Missouri where we need front license plates so I ended up putting it back on anyway. Good luck but I would'nt hold your breath. Once they have you committed, they dont give a ****.

My Patriot had the same holes from the dealer. I'm surprised Jeep didn't have some factory mounting already.

I'm not too upset because I need the front plate in Ohio anyways.
