I discovered rust on my Pacifica about a year ago. It's was located on the liftgate and body at the top of the liftgate and 3 of the 4 passenger doors. Finally Chrysler Corp. gave approval for the repair. I have seen four other Pacificas out the with the same damage. Is anyone else out there with this experience? The rust first looked like small bubbles under the paint along seam edges.

We discovered rust on the liftgate and hood of our 2004 Pacifica and Chrysler said, "too bad, it's 2 months out of warranty." The rust didn't start two months ago. It's been forming for some time, but they don't care. Any suggestions?

I discovered rust on my Pacifica 2005 last month.
I had small bubbles under the paint on my right rear panel. Warranty covered repair(took one week to fix it). Today i discovered the same thing on my left rear panel. I'm sure they just appeared couple days ago.
I don't know about you, but this is my first and last Chrysler for sure. Nothing bot PROBLEMS!!!

I have a 2002 and have that problem on the tip of the hood. I am curious as to what dollar amount they estimated it cost them to repair? Did you see any dollar amount on your papers, after they repaired it?

To repaint only is $1200, and they want me to pay a half.
To change rear panel and repaint is $5300...and I need to pay a half.

How did you get Chrysler to agree to repaint? I have an 2006 that just started to show "bubbles" under the paint.
Appreciate any help -
Thanks You !
