Purchased a 2002 Jeep Wrangler sahara with 4 miles on it. All required maintenance has been done routinely. This vehicle has never been off road and was strictly a daily driver averaging 12K miles per year. I took the vehicle to the shop for an oil change and the mechanic brought me into the garage to show me the frame was almost completely rotted through near the front suspension. The frame where the cross bracket that holds the transmission in place has also rotted. The bolts in the bracket have nothing to hold onto because the frame has rotted through. The mechanic stated, "you are one pot hole away from a major accident". I brought it to another mechanic who stated "this is a major safety risk and I would not suggest driving it." Other than the frame rotting out, the vehicle is in perfect working order with normal wear. I can provide photos if interested.
