So far my 2014 Patriot has stayed rust free. Are there any particular places on the Pat body that are prone to rust? Fender wells? Door edges? Etc etc... Just wondering....

Only place I've noticed rust on my '08 Patriot is at the rear on the drivers side roof near where the roof rack attaches. Just a spot of bubbling paint at this point. Fenders, doors & body panels all seem fine. Our 2014 is rust free so far.

We see plenty of road salt here in New England but so far so good.

I live in Buffalo, and the only times I've seen a Pat with rust, it was due to body damage ie: a dent with rust around the edges. Pretty impressive, actually.

I drive to northern Wisconsin a lot and the only rust I see is the driver's side rear wheel well directly above the tire. This is on the older 07-08 models and may be do to a common leak area where salt spray gets inside the lip. In 11 years my '07 never had any exterior sheet metal rust, but I live in Missouri.
