I hope you had nice Holiday. I just dropped my Jeep off at the dealer for repair of the corrosion. Is there any information you need?

Thanks,

Hey gang. See the thread called “bubbles under paint” (or similar). Lots of info & photos in that thread about this same issue. Best of luck!

They have had mine over a month fixing paint issues. If it isn’t done correctly this time I have a lawyer ready.

Jeep doesn’t primer the doors prior to mounting them. Water seeps in and causes galvanic corrosion. That’s pretty much the easiest way to explain it. I had rust on the side of my hood for no apparent reason.

My 2020 Jeep is my 6th and by far the best minus a few things but the most disheartening is the corrosion. I noticed the hood hinge only months after owning it but it’s out of sight out of mind but now the doors hinges are corroding and I’m not happy at all. Here’s the most expensive Jeep ever using the most sophisticated assembly lines, paint processes and materials but never before has a prior Jeep of mine done this so quickly. I baby my Jeep like most others so it’s not from neglect but poor design, process and execution. I have the stingray color, love it and the clear coat shines like no other so the fix Jeep has put in place to repaint my Jeep is completely unacceptable because I can spot a car that has been repainted a mile away and seeing mine when I walk up to it daily would irritate me knowing it has not been in an accident. Matching the clear coat texture, color and blend on 4 doors would be obvious and not fair to any owner who buys a brand new vehicle to have something that looks new. If we bought used that’s one thing but we didn’t so has anyone been successful in a full door replacement? Sadly even a née door is a temporary fix until they get to the root of the problem and fix it but it seems Jeep has just accepted the poor quality seeing this was happening 2 years before mine was made on 9/20. Thank god I leased this one, I can see it hurting the resale and if they don’t take care of it I have the luxury of handing them the keys and getting my deposit back, well at least I would try 😆
