Angry So pissed.... Little chip and rust already

So I just noticed that some paint chipped away on back trunk under glass on driver side. It also started to rust where the chip occured.

Clean it off and put a dab of touchup paint on it.

Re: So pissed.... Little chip and rust already

Color is Black! I took it to dealer and they took pictures to send to Chrysler! I'm def not putting touch up paint on something that should not be chipping in my opinion! If it was caused by a rock or something in front then I could seetouching it up! This is just chipped paint in a place where no rocks, etc can get at!

Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
Touch it up. Some bisch backed into my few week old WK2 SRT8 and it's worse than that. Pissed for a couple days, hit it with touch up. I've pretty much forgotten about it. I'll repair it down the road.

Re: So pissed.... Little chip and rust already

Stop opening it into your garage door or dropping stuff on it when you load the rear cargo area...there, I told you what Chrysler will ultimately tell you.

Re: So pissed.... Little chip and rust already

Wtf r guys talking about? So if the paint just comes off your $43k truck with no wear or tear or misuse in some place where it could not have been chipped by a stone, rock or anything..... I should just cover up the shit stain with cover up paint, so that in 3 years it's all fn corroded, etc. Ha what a Joke.

Re: So pissed.... Little chip and rust already

we are just being real.

if they FIX it, thats what they will do. sand it and paint it. Its not going in to be disassembled and completely repainted. they will not be giving you a NEW hatch for a chip. THEY WILL touch it up. and who knows, F sometrhing else up in the meantime.

SO dont take it negatively. we are just being real/ FWIW/

Well if you sand it and touch it up with paint it shouldn't corrode.
