2011 Jeep Compass heavily corroded crossmembers
Hi there. I am hoping someone can give me some advice. Last week I took my Compass in for a recall on the catalytic converter and an oil change. When they were done, they called me to tell me it needed some minor maintenance like coolant service and breakfluid, etc. But the big kicker was them telling me my front and rear crossmembers are heavily corroded and my car was unsafe to drive. When I went to pick it up they put it on the lift to explain what was going on. Now, Jeep apparently knew about this issue that is why they extended the warranty on this but the dealer tells me Jeep will only cover the frame and I will have to replace all the components attached like a new suspension and all that. So, I have to fork out almost $2000 for this fix. Does anyone else see a problem here? If Jeep knows about this problem and they extended the warranty to cover the fix, why should I have to pay anything? If there was nothing wrong with my frame, I wouldn't need to replace the suspension or anything else they tell me might break off when they tear my car apart. I have called the Jeep Warranty people, and they keep telling me the same thing that it is my responsibility. Also, I just had brand new tires put on it about 8 months ago and at my last oil change they rotated my tires. How come they didn't make me aware of this situation then? Because it didn't happen overnight. I just don't understand why. Any thoughts on this situation?
