Take a look at these pictures, then take a look under your own dash and see if any of you also have rusted pedal brackets for your accelerator and parking brake. These are the steel brackets that support the pedals to the firewall and the dash frame. If they are this rusted in two years, imagine what ten years will look like. I think there is more water intrusion than is outwardly apparent.
i guarantee there is surface rust all over you car, there is going to be surface rust on nearly EVERY new car. it just surface rust, it happens, and its not necessarily a reflection on how the car is goign to hold up over time
Well when I compared them to my 2004 Tahoe, my truck brackets look like new. It is 3 years old and has 76K on it. I was wondering if the Bonne'* have super moist insides from poor water dispersal design, ie- trunk and sunroofs.
