Hey I had a question about the 14 convertible top? does anyone have issues when closing the top? I recently was looking at one and the dealer said it was normal. I actually had to work very hard to close it by moving it around quite a bit, shaking it and using quite a bit of force to get it to fall into place. The convertible I have,2007 has never, even brand new had any issues closing at all. it always fell right into place a firm pull down and just latch the latches. He told me that the weekend before it was used in a parade, it made me wonder if someone had sat on the top and bent some of the parts inside. they even brought another one over and it did exactly the same thing. Not sure if the salesman was being shifty. Anyone else have issues with their 2014 not latching quite right without alot of work?

I think the top has been damaged. I do not have that issue with my 2010 convertible and I am quite sure the top mechanism has not changed. Even if he has a second one that has the problem, it too has been damaged. Go to a different dealership and try.
Sounds to me like they used more than one car in the parade....tops have been easy to close on all the S197 convertibles. Might consider stopping by a shop that specializes in tops just for an opinion from them.

I wake up in the morning with nothing to do and by supper time, I have half of it done.
