I looked under my car in curiosity as to how this could happen. I REALLY don't think this should be any kind of concern. Someone somewhere probably crashed a car and cut open their ankle because the sheet metal pulled away from the frame rail.

Kinda like that steering column shaft bolt that could fail. I don't even know where that bolt is.

My R/T has the bolts in the floor or actually more like sheet metal screws on mine. The steering bolt issue was more like all cars in 92. My mini never had it fixed and the wheel rocks a little.

very cool rick, but even though the recalls are closed, aren't the dealers obligated to fix the car under the recall if it was affected and never had the work done?

good question. I asked a chrysler rep why the recall showed "completed" for my spirit r/t on a date i know good and well it was sitting in my driveway.. needless to say i never got a answer. Many of the old recalls where the parts are NLA are being closed. I've seen this with mechanical repairs and safety (seatbelt repairs).
