It's that time of the year again where I need to swap out my all seasons for winter tires. I noticed that some on the jack points (mentioned in the manual - just behind the front tire and just before the rear tire) are either badly rusted or deformed. Any suggestion on where else to place my jack? Further along the rail? Thanks.

Are you using a floor jack? Or the scissor jack in the trunk? I have a 3 ton floor jack and can jack both front tires off the ground at the center point at the front of the vehicle. And the same for the rear. If the scissor jack points are rusty I wouldn't recommend using them or the scissor jack. This thread has photos to help.

Using a trolley jack like this: http://www.princessauto.com/en/detail/2-ton-trolley-jack/A-p8036709e


Looked at the thread you provided ... those are different from what my manual shows. I'll take a closer look for those locations tomorrow. Hopefully I find them and can use my jack. When you jack on the front ... is that under the bumper area or under the engine? What about the rear? I would have thought that it is too high off the ground to use the jack.

Thanks for the input.
