problem #3

Nov 082014


  • 60,585 miles
Frame is rusting away from inside out, holes are starting to appear around front most driver side body mount. Rust chunks can be seen and removed thru hole within the frame. 12 year old vehicle is too soon to have a frame rusting out. Chrysler should do as Toyota has done with their frame rust issue of the North East usa as well as for all Jeep owners that road salt has affected the integrity of the vehicles frame and body way too soon.
