I just purchased an LE and we absolutely love it. I used this website as a basis for my decision. You guys have been really helpful.
I see there are some issues such as the roof. Is this like a factory re-call where they fix under for free? Also, if anyone knows if there are any other recalls that the dealer will correct for free.

My roof cracked with 1 hour on the meter. It's off now....and considering how the roof rattled, and banged against the cage....I like it a lot better without it. Your hint is also in the review made they showed on TV. In the prep before the ride, roof was on for marketing reasons. When they rode, they took them off. I wouldn't waste my time...on the stock POS roof.

Thanks Puddle Jumper.
I will have them fix these when I return for my 20 hr service. I am a little surprised nothing was metioned to me about the recalls since I just purchased this.

In response to jcummins roof rattle, I purchasd some small self sticking felt pads and stuck them between the roll bars and roof. Voila! No more roof rattle. It worked perfectly and super easy!

My dealer gave me the optional factory aluminum roof for free so I got the stock LE roof sittin' in my shop.

If somebody wants to pick it up in NE Texas (75488) and give me a 6 pack of Original Coors ... it's yours.

Kowboy,
I should be near Longview soon but not Telephone, TX. I would sure like that roof since mine cracked the first 15 min! Darn trees!
