    Extra holes In frame from my thumb and it's existence
    I'm just sick of seeing my frame dust away I can poke holes through it with my thumb. It's going to cause high risk of something's not done about it in near future Rear shock mounts will fall soon I'm still making payments on it bought as is. I'm not very knowledgeable on what to do or what I got into.

    Sorry to hear about your problem, but I doubt that you would get very far in suing for corrosion on a 15 year old car. They'll ask, was it ever undercoated? Run on wintry salted roads? Still, the thought makes we want to price having our 4R undercoated, but I probably won't bother as I'll be 98 when it turns 15. - Ted

    OP, I feel for you. But you bought a used car. Like the others said, who knows how the prior owners used it. The only one who is going to get sued when the frame cracks and causes a catastrophe is you, because you knowingly drove an unsafe vehicle. You need to wise up and make whatever repairs are necessary.
