On 05/20/10 car was taken back to dealership for driveability problems, a rear sway bar was installed at first oil change I was alerted by service attendant that car had severe rust and corrosion problems on underside of car I had another independent mechanic inspect car, he said brake lines and other parts were so eaten away by corrosion that he considered this to be a safety issue I returned car to dealership for inspection dealership refused to inspect problem, was told car has lots of warranty left and if brake failure occurs they will look at it then I then took car to another independent mechanic and we made video ---dvd--- of underside of car and got a statement from mechanic to verify problem I am taking car to another car dealership in rockingham nc to get another opinion and verify I can furnish you with a copy of dvd and statements from mechanics to verify please let me know where to mail summary--- I thought that I was getting a good car from a reputable manufacture and dealership---what I got was a bucket of rust and corrosion and potential safety concerns to worry about----this is a new car 3611 mi.
