After 3 years the paint bubbles-flaking from rust on the front door rocker-panel/sill plates was determined to be a body warranty repair item. Now it has been repaired: rust removed, repainted. The bodyshop said they squirted some kind of gunk in the frame/sill area to prevent rust from re-occuring. The radio/clock needed re-coded and my rear drivers turn-light was not working. I reset the codes and replaced the light bulb. Today is third time out of the driveway and the turn-light pooped out about the 5th corner. Dealer would not answer if light wires run thru that area and could have been damaged - "just bring in for diagnostic service". No pre-exisiting lighting problems ever before. You may guess from the mileage I am not a roadrunner. Nor am I mechanically savy. I love the rig - it takes me where I need to go. -- BUT I am not enthused with the dealship. They have a monopoly of the major auto-brands and so are basically the ONLY recourse for "factory-auth service" in the state. (Alaska) The bodyshop they use for warranty work is a whole another story.I just want my lights working for more than a drive at a time. Any sugestions? Attached picture is the door-sil before repair.
