Nope. no electrical problems. It was built in 1-06. So I'm pretty sure it wasn't in New Orleans. Are you serious? do you think they might have had just left the frames out in the rain before installation. Should I tell my dealer about this, or am I just being nitpicky?Llanero said:Maybe your Commander was in a flood, and cleaned up before you bought it. Have you noticed any electrical problems?
Let me know what you find... I really would like to know I'm not the only one.Bulldog9 said:I wouldnt be happy with that.... Is this on both seat bottoms? How about any other metal hardware in and under the rear seats/dash? If you see this throughout, your car may have had flood damage of some sort. I'd want to do some what of an inspection under the carpet/center console. How about pulling the back off the center armrest, below the air vents?
If it is not seen anywhere else, may just be a fluke, as in someone set the seat or pan down during production. I'm going out to look at mine this morning..... At first I thought you were just talking about the frames that mount to the floor. I diddnt look at the seat pans.
Youre NOT, I've got the same thing build date is 12-05. I sprayed WD40 on a rag & wiped the seat pan down best I could. Not worried about it, NOTHING else is even remotely rusty, or has any sign. I think it is a process/issue with the seat pan, and not a car flood issue. I'm not worried.Commander in Jeep said:Let me know what you find... I really would like to know I'm not the only one.
This has been pretty much the norm on all cars for a long time, just nobody ever really looks up under the seats or dash. Oddly enough I can remember replacing a dashboard with frame on a Kia in the late 90s and while the factory part was not painted the replacement part was. I guess to keep it from getting the surface rust while sitting in a parts warehouse.Commander in Jeep said:It sure looks crappy. I mean, would a powder coat of black paint on this part have been so difficult to have done? It being so prevelant in the whole line, I doubt a huge recall would be happening.
