TO THE EDITOR:
I'm leasing a 2015 Grand Cherokee, and after looking at the latest crash test, I refuse to buy or lease one again until Jeep does something to beef up the structural integrity of the front end ("Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Explorer rate poor in passenger side small overlap crash test," autonews.com, June 12).
I have five months left on my lease, and they have asked me if I would like to trade it in for the 2018 model. I tell them, "Not until Fiat Chrysler does something about the latest crash test where the front end implodes." All the salespeople pleaded ignorance when I explained the crash test results. It's time for people in the automotive industry to admit they have a problem when the life of a family member is on the line.
It just confirms what many people think about salespeople in general, that they would sell their own mother down the road just to make a sale. The general public has tremendous information at their fingertips, and John Q. Public should not be underestimated in today's world.
