Comment:
We purchased this Char-Broil 6 years ago. I've replaced the burners once and broke a burner bracket which was part of the grill's wall when cleaning. Now they're ready for a second replacement, but the riveted brackets which support the burners have all rusted out and must be held up with bricks which I've chiseled to the proper height to support the burners.<br /><br />This Char-Broil requires too much McGivering to make it functional. I won't buy Char-Broil again.

Have owned this grill for the past 3 years, entire inside has rusted, with the cost of replacement parts, might as well buy a new one. Very poor quality, and does not distribute heat evenly.

Comment:
I have had this grill 7+ years and it is time to rebuild the inside. When I purchased the grill I registered the warranty and had no problems receiving replacement parts under warranty. If after 7yrs a company will stand behind a product that they know will rust I give them 5 stars and all my future business. The person I spoke to seemed to enjoy her job and it showed through her customer service.
