Gna get a lot of hate but the only place I’ve seen corrosion so far is on this forum. And I always remember to take a close look at the hinges anytime I see a JL in person.Went to a cars and coffee this past Sunday morning. Several modded JLs there. Checked all the door hinges. No corrosion visible.
I got rid of my 18' JL with a bunch of issues. I traded for a 21' JT with a build date of March 2021. I will report if it also starts corroding.Went to a cars and coffee this past Sunday morning. Several modded JLs there. Checked all the door hinges. No corrosion visible.
You tell them the only “merger” that has caused your issue ....is the “merger” of 2 dissimilar metals! .....And that merger, nor their personal one, is any of your problem ....only there’s!Hi there! Joined this forum to ask what sort of luck you’ve all had with Jeep warranty coverage. I’ve got a 2018 JLU with the exact same corrosion that everyone else has in this thread. The dealer got back to me yesterday and said that while the corrosion on the door would be covered, the hinges are not covered by any form of corrosion warranty, and that removing, repainting, and replacing them would be at my cost. The dealer blamed Stellantis, and said that until recently it would have been covered but corporate said no. “Something to do with the merger”. Hoping I’ve just got a shady dealer, because I’m going to another dealer tomorrow to try again.
5 year corrosion is for rust through only. Most dealers will turn you away after 3 years. Happened with my JK hinges. :-(Took mine to the dealer which has a body shop on site. Bought mine May 2018, JLUS. The rep there noted the current corrosion I have.
Corrosion is covered as a 5 Year unlimited mile warranty.
I was advised to wait. Basically if you have some corrosion and it gets repaired under warranty if you find additional corrosion after the fact and you are still below the 5 year mark it will be very difficult to get the approval for a second go round.
I am waiting till I get close to the 5 Year mark and then bringing it back in.
Echo what everyone else has said, known issue that seems to be ignored by the Mfg. I would believe an attorney would do well in a class action suit, even if it isn't a safety issue.
I was told 5yrs for mine. First by the person that answered my original phone call and then the service manager.5 year corrosion is for rust through only. Most dealers will turn you away after 3 years. Happened with my JK hinges. :-(
Read the warranty, I would beware.I was told 5yrs for mine. First by the person that answered my original phone call and then the service manager.
Mine was creeping up on three years so that is why I brought it in, not being sure of the warranty coverage on this issue.
