Mazda Motors of America - Chassis rusting away
In 2003 I purshased a used B3000 extended body pickup. At that time there was some surface rut on thchassis and most underbody areas. I was told by the dealer O'Hara Mazda in Fairhaven, MA that this was not a problem. I took it to a RI garage that specializes in rust restoration. It cost $500 to have it sandblasted and coated with special chemicals to inhibit further problems. Just recently I noticed that the chassis is corroding away along with brake lines, springs, etc. I was told by my mechanic to dump the truck ASAP.
When it was purchased it, on 7/8/04 it had 36,721 miles on the odometer. As of 7/15/12 it now has 55,078 miles on it. As you can see it not a high mileage truck as it used mainly to bring trash and recycleables to the Town dump.
My problem is that I am afraid that soon it will collapse and injure myself
or some other person.
What can I do????????????????
