Why would Chrysler cover damage to a part that has been out of warranty for ~3 years?

Please post a pic or two of the damage, I am sure that we can help you out if we could just see what you are describing.

I think that I have the same issue.....it looks like the chrome plating on the grill is bubbling like it got melted or something. It's right off the driver's side top of the grill. I haven't found anyone that can explain it other than maybe it's a factory defect. I'm just going to replace it with an aftermarket full grill assembly.
