Serious Issue! Roof is caving in!

Please take a look at these photos and tell me what you think...The roof and roof molding appear to be sinking down from the sides of the car..The ends of the plastic roof molding are also now exposed at the ends of the car!

Is your car garaged or out in the elements.

Find it hard to believe your roof would be sinking. That moulding covers a flangeline between the roof outer and the body side outer that is welded toghther. That would mean all the welds would be missing. Thats not likely as they are done by a programed robot. Can you press the roof down in that area? Looks to me as if the molding itself may be sinking giving an illusion of the roof sinking. Why, I do not know. Just a thought though.

If the ethanol is the light end of the fuel, maybe we could have a metal pot sitting over an open fire, and pour gas in the pot and let the fire heat it up until the ethanol cooks off

The car does sit in the driveway, I was going to put it in the garage for the fall and winter.....

Chrysler had already opened a case for the "mysterious dents" syndrome when this started happening.... Unbelievable! The car has only 2900 miles on it and was special ordered by me last October...

I agree that whether it's outside or not, that is UNACCEPTABLE!

Wait! The car wasn't like that from the factory? It just started sinking in the middle? Holy crap! I've never seen such a thing. I hope you get taken care of with these issues you've been having.
