Door hinge rust?

What's up guys, anyone notice some rust forming on their door hinges? A buddy of mine showed me the inside door hinges on his 2014 and there is some rust like between where the hinges are touching, I checked mine an saw a light layer kind of forming also. Just wondering if it's normal or just me being anal!

Re: Door hinge rust?

Mine is a 2011. The driver's door has minimal rust on the hinges but the lower door panel (inside) has a lot. None of the other doors are showing any signs of rust. 95% of the time it's me alone in the car so the other doors are closed the majority of times. Compared to my previous Jeeps, this one seems to be rusting faster (but only the driver's door).

Surface rust. Brush off and apply a good rust prevention/lubrication spray. If you let it sit longer it will just get worse. If it is worse take it to the dealer. Should fall under the warranty for body corrosion if out of the norm.

Re: Door hinge rust?

Would it be better to just have the dealer check it out next time I'm there, instead of spraying stuff on it myself

Take it to the dealer and get it on record in case it becomes worse as time goes on, then wipe it down and give it a spray of Boeshield T-9 as needed.
