Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

I checked my area and noticed the scuffing caused by the rear glass. I think the issue is that the rubber gasket is to soft. I intend on inserting a foam piece to make the gasket firmer and not allowing the glass to rub, I can post some pics if you guys want.

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

Finally a result from Jeep.
Warranty claim denied!!!!!!!!

the warranty is only valid when the panel is perforated.
I have what they call 'COSMETIC CORROSION' which is not covered.
Can anybody tell me what COSMETIC CORROSION is because I am at a loss.

Again Jeep you should be ashamed!

I will look forward to reading their next brochure to see if cosmectic corrosion is an optional extra!

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

Hi Andy

I copied this information from Jeep website

Q. What corrosion warranty does my vehicle have?
A. Corrosion warranty covers any outer-body metal panel that gets holes from rust or other corrosion. The warranty has time and distance limits as follows;
  • For sheet metal panels, the limit is 2 years with unlimited distance.
  • For an outer-body sheet metal panel, one that is finished-painted and that can be seen when walking around the vehicle, the time limit is 7 years with unlimited distance.
  • The warranty does not cover cosmetic or surface corrosion resulting for example from stone chips, scratches or bird lime in the paint.
I think they are being unreasonable and giving very poor customer service.

I'm still waiting for the parts to be delivered that I ordered from Marshall Jeep Peterborough last week.
Turns out the couriers damaged the first parcel and couldn't find us when delivering the second.

Russ

Russ

When i e-mailed them (jeep customer service) last week i copied that into it. I have sent them another requesting a detailed report of why they have turned it down and their definitions of cosmetic corrosion and perforation. They say they will get back to me early next week, needless to say i wont hold my breath. Ialso sent them my photographs as i dont trust the dealer to have taken decent ones.

Cheers Andy

Re: 2006 rusting jeep!

I dont have the rear glass issues you guys do. but I actually have corrosion on my hood, and not from road any chips in paint. There are chips in my paint, but not where the corrosion is. Dealer told me the hood is aluminum and therefore is not rust, but corrosion. Does not think this will be covered under warranty? I will get pics up soon.
