2015 front subframe and trans cross member rotting

So when they had to cut off the front sub frame on our 2015 Transit to remove the trans they found that the trans cross member and front sub frame had already rotted through and had holes rusted already. Crazy on a 2015 van.

Road salt destroys everything. Somebody else here had the same problem.

Wow that is definitely surprising for a 2015! Thanks for the heads up.

I'm not surprised. Man hasn't invented a steel that is impervious to road salt, coated or not, without proper care and cleaning.

I will never buy a used car from the northern states. No one cares for them properly and this happens.
