Rust under paint anyone??

2014 Overland 37000 miles. Never in any accidents or repainted. Garage kept.

My wheels were all corroding and replaced about 6 months ago. Now my hood is bubbling up. I want to love this Jeep so much more than I do. The quality control, fit and finish is so poor on these things. (body lines and trim lines horrible) Anyone else having rotting issues already?

This seems to be an emerging problem on more of these GCs. There are multiple threads on this, try searching on corroded hood. Sorry to see that

I have got corrosion bubbles on the underside of my hood also. If you have it on the topside like that then get it to the dealer even if it's out of the 3/36 people have been getting it covered under the corrosion warranty even though it's not a rust through hole yet. On the underside of the hood it's questionable if they would do anything for you but on the top side they need to fix that on such a young vehicle and if they don't then call FCA corporate and get a regional manager involved.

Re: Rust under paint anyone??

Sorry to hear about your rust. I have been so impressed by the quality of the paint on my 2013 JGC. Hope it's taken care of to your satisfaction.

Re: Rust under paint anyone??

I thought the hood was aluminium. So is it rust a paint defect or maybe moisture.

Re: Rust under paint anyone??

Correct hoods are aluminum. Dealer replaced my hood on 2013 overland due to this issue! Under warranty. They stated moisture entering where top pinched onto frame and just painting hood would not resolve the issue long term.

Dealer said the fix was authorized. I will be dropping it off next week to have it painted and installed.
