Complaint - Structure, Suspension

THE RIGHT, REAR WHEEL WELL AND SHOCK SUPPORT IS NEARLY ENTIRELY RUSTED OUT. THE RUST DAMAGE I'VE OBSERVED APPEARS TO BE MUCH MORE SIGNIFICANT THAN OTHERWISE WOULD HAVE OCCURRED DUE TO NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR. THE LEFT WHEEL WELL IS NOT SUFFERING FROM THE SAME CORROSION PROBLEM. A QUICK GOOGLE SEARCH SHOWS THAT THIS IS A SEEMINGLY WIDESPREAD PROBLEM IMPACTING 2004-2006 FORD ESCAPES. I'VE CHECKED WITH MY LOCAL FORD DEALERSHIP, AND CONTACTED FORD CORPORATE, AND HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THERE ARE NO KNOWN ISSUES. I DO REALIZE THAT I LIVE IN NEW ENGLAND AND THAT THE VEHICLE IS 8-YEARS OLD. HOWEVER, I TAKE VERY GOOD CARE OF MY VEHICLE, AND THE DAMAGE I'M SEEING SEEMS TO BE CLEARLY ABOVE BEYOND WHAT WOULD BE WARRANTED FROM NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR.
