PURCHASED NEW TOYOTA HIGHLANDER 2005 MODEL YEAR IN JULY 2005. VEHICLE WAS PARKED IN DRIVEWAY SINCE. VEHICLE ONLY HAS 23,000 MILES. CORROSSION DEVELOPED WITHIN 9 MONTHS OF PURCHASE IN THESE AREAS: BASE OF ANTENNA, ANTENNA MAST, WINDOW FRAMES, AND ALUMINUM OR ALLOY WHEELS SHOW BUBBLING IN THE SURFACE THAT ARE INCREASING IN SIZE AND DIAMETER.* DEALERSHIP AND TOYOTA WERE CONTACTED TO REMEDY PROBLEMS WITH WHEELS WITHOUT SUCCESS. DEALERSHIP REPAINTED CORRODED WINDOWS. DEALERSHIP AND TOYOTA CLAIM CORROSION IS DUE TO ENVIRONMENT - I HAVE HAD 2 OTHER VEHICLES PARKED IN THE SAME LOCATION WITHOUT VISIBLE SIGNS OF CORROSSION. I AM CONCERN THAT THE CONTINUED EXPANSION OF THE BUBBLES AND CORROSSION ON THE WHEELS WILL CREATE A SAFETY HAZARD IF IT WEAKENS THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF THE WHEES.
