Hi guys, I know it's not a turbo but, this is my friends 2012 Dodge Caliper. It started making squeeky noises so she took it to have it checked. She only had 68,000 miles on it. Wouldn't you say this is defective? What can she do? What would you suggest.

Do a search for Caliber subframe recall.

Some folks got them replaced under an extended 10 year warranty program.

Thanks

I did look for recall, none. But plenty of NHTSA complaints of rusted sub frames. To me, that looks like a defective metal.

A subframe recall search brings up the 10 yr extended warranty program.

Thanks

Damn, I almost bought a new 2012 Caliber back then.
That is Definitely a defect in metalurgy or coating.
It looks like it was in salt water for 100 years.

Was this parked near the ocean? What state is this from?

I'm in AZ and if you saw this here you might have a heart attack

22 State recall...jeez!
When the service procedure said to raise it on a lift, they forgot to say to stand far far away while lifting.
The Titanic has less rust!

We are in Chicago. And I did find recall for her, (my neighbor, who knows absolutely nothing about cars). Her car is being repaired as we speak, she had til April 18th 2021. She just made it.
What the hell kinda metal are they using that rusts like that. Defective for sure.
