It's probably buried in something else. I distinctly remember Mr Sheaves discussing the issue.Jeff2KPatriotBlue said:Mike, I checked the fist 6 pages of a search on "rust" and could not find it... Would you be able to find and post a link?
Where is the rust, was it bubbling through the exterior panel?UN4GTBL said:I remember an issue with the 2009 Rams and the "Chrome" front bumpers rusting, and a similar issue with the last-gen Rams with rust in the same places.
Agreed, 2011 is too new to have rust.
No problem, Mike. I know what you mean.Mike V. said:Mike V., on 11 Apr 2013 - 14:33, said:

If I remember right where the inner and out panel are laminated could have moisture issues.
Any metal can rust, was there any time that it could have been placed in a situation that could have caused the rust.
Point is, I'm sure there are lots of details we don't know and we don't know both sides of the coin. This is not intended to to be a jab at the original poster.
Probably so.....but it sure doesn't alter the fact that they are rusting....at an early age.JRS200x said:JRS200x, on 11 Apr 2013 - 15:08, said:
If it is causing bubbling of the paint, Chrysler will fix it.
Agreed but i've sold hundreds of Rams since their debut in 2011 and haven't had a single customer return with a complaint of Rust.unverferth said:Probably so.....but it sure doesn't alter the fact that they are rusting....at an early age.
Doesn't bode well for Ram....warranty or not.
And my son-in-law was a convert too (always had Chevy's)....so not a good Ram experience for him.
Wasn't just 2005 . I had a 2004 and still have a 2007 and they both started rotting thru the hood and rear hatch in about 4 years . I see tons of the 2002-07 caravans with completely rusted thru hood edges . Looks pretty sad and does nothing for the quality issue impression people have of Chrysler.Jeff2KPatriotBlue said:The "through" is the kicker as far as the warranty goes.
Not sure what sort of "goodwill" there is on these. I know that the 2005(ish) Caravans had issues with the hoods that resulted a "goodwill" program. Mine had too many kms on it qualify.
