  1. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    I've read that door hinges are not necessarily covered. Door edge is part of the outer-body sheet metal so yes.
  2. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Yes, as long as it's the outer-body sheet metal.

    The 36 month is for all sheet metal panels. The 60 month is for outer-body sheet metal panels only (per attached US warranty). I assume the Canada warranty is identical except for the 160km limit.

    Technically it does not cover just bubbling since it specifically says "holes caused by corrosion" but it sounds like most cases of bubbling are being covered.
  5. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Aluminum bolts wouldn't be nearly as strong as steel. Also they are threading into steel inside the door, so the aluminum bolts would be the first to corrode, which can never be a good thing.

    It's actually 5 years and unlimited miles, and it also only covers it there are holes (see attached). But as stated many people are getting the repair covered even without holes.
  7. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    No problem, I didn't take it as rude and I didn't mean to sound defensive. It can be difficult to convey meaning in a quick post. I also should have said something in my post about definitely going to to the dealer, or multiple dealers if that's what it takes. I've got a few small bubbles on...

    I was merely sharing what is in writing from FCA. Some people have had their claims approved and some have had them denied.

    Unfortunately since you are beyond the 3 year / 36 bumper to bumper warranty, the 5 year / unlimited mile corrosion warranty only covers if there are holes, see attached. Others have had some success, seems to depend on the dealer.

    Andy, Can you tell me which hinges you bought? Also did you buy new bolts or reuse the existing? I would like to buy new and need to know the size.

    A TSB is merely a recommended procedure for repair and would not act as a recall.
  12. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    If you have the time when you get this done I would appreciate a new thread with procedure and specific materials and parts used. I actually really like the look of the black hinges on the Sting-Gray. And as luck would have it that is my color.

    I agree that this will be an ongoing issue until they change the process and/or materials. And to answer the original question, it would be too early to tell if it was more common on certain years. I took delivery August 9, 2018 (manufacture date July 2018) and noticed small bubbling October...

    Oh yeah, I forgot. Guess I better get in since I only have 4,800 miles and just under 7 months to go.

    Five years & unlimited miles, there isn't a JL out there that is outside the warranty.
  16. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Gotcha. My dealer has been pretty good with the steering damper and one other small issue, but I'm not too confident they will cover the bubbles since it's not too bad yet. I'm hoping I can just get it on their radar and in a couple years when it's worse it won't be an issue.
  17. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Per the warranty it is 5 years and unlimited miles, how was it out of warranty?
  18. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Unfortunately that will be out of the warranty period, but a much cheaper repair. At least these aren't debilitating problems.
  19. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    It seems to be a crap shoot. There are plenty of people on this board that have had just the bubbles covered. But there are those that have had it denied as well. I'm going to be calling the dealer soon to look at mine, as well as my disconnected rear window defroster.
  20. Bubbles in Paint at Door Hinges

    Yep, 5 years unlimited miles per attached, section 2.2, C, second bullet point.
