Production of the new Jeep Wagoneer began with a strange defect

At the start of production of the new Jeep Wagoneer, the Warren Truck plant in Warren, Michigan, faced a strange problem: SUVs rolled off the assembly line with crooked Wagoneer lettering on the stern. A snapshot of one of these Wagoneer posted on the Twitter account boring.cars. It shows that the letters are located not only at the wrong angle, but also unevenly in relation to each other, as if they were fastened along a curved stencil.

According to Jalopnik, the photo was taken during a pre-sale quality check. That is, the defect was noticed and promptly corrected, and they reached Wagoneer customers with an even inscription on the fifth door.

How such an oversight was made during the assembly is unclear. Automobile workers usually use special stencils with adjusted proportions, which lean against the nearest joint and guarantee an even application. Probably, at the start of the model assembly, for some reason, they decided to do without them.

This is not the first time the Wagoneer logo has puzzled netizens. Previously, Jeep had to explain why the American flag on the SUV’s door is mirrored (the stars are on the right, not the left). According to representatives of the brand, this was done on purpose: this is how the flag looks when it sways in the wind as it moves forward. By the way, this type of flag is also used by the US armed forces.
