damn this seems a little severe. How much snow have you driven in, and how many miles are on your car?

Why the fuck do you expect the dealer to do anything about that? In what world do you live in? You have 40 thousand miles on a car that has seen salt and snow.

What exactly do your intend to say to the dealership?

Let's roleplay. I'll be the service manager.

Me: "Greetings, former customer of a car we hate to work on; how may I help you?"

Your turn!

or original use, whichever occurs first, and extends for 5
years regardless of mileage.
In addition, outer panel rust-through protection coverage is
extended as follows:



New 2008 Vehicles are covered for 7 years or 100,000
odometer miles, whichever occurs first.
It is the owner


s responsibility under the terms of this warranty
to maintain the Vehicle as specified in this booklet
and in the Owner

The section titled OTHER TERMSstated in the MMNA

I don't garage mine at all, live in the midwest, and I don't have that much rust underneath. Bummer! I'd have to guess that you drove through a puddle of something industrial and nasty. I have over 45,000 miles, but I try to use the F-250 Crewcab 4x4 if the snow is more than 2" deep so I don't get the frozen chunks of snow from other car's wheel wells into my FMIC.
