Welcome, ncfisher! Too bad you didn't find our forum sooner. Might have saved you some aggravation. Apparently FCA knows about the rust problem on Compasses, Calibers, and Patriots. After 10 years there's little that can be come. Its getting to be an old car. On the bright side, while expensive, its not as expensive as a new engine or tranny.Yeah I'm in the same position. My wife and son were driving when the back driver upper control arm mount broke from the rusted subframe and the wheel slanted inwards till it was rubbing the wheel well. Of course I didn't find out this was an issue till now and the so called extended warranty ran out the month before I bought it. Since they won't fix it I'm on a mission to get as many partiot, compass, caliber owners with rusted subframes onto the nhtsa and report it so a recall can be forced.
