My 04 gmc has less than 60k on it and i keep it in great shape only one recall (tail gate straps) 98% original, my problem is the paint, i waxed this truck 3-4 times a year and the topside ( roof,hood,top of fenders)of the truck is losing its clearcoat, i love my truck but it upsets me to see it in this condition i will eventually have it repainted but personally i think gmc owes me a paint job( not going to hold my breath on this one) any thoughts? The truck is red. Thanks for any and all answers.

Default GM Paint

don't waste your time waiting for GM, if you are beyond your mileage or time warranty you are on your own, I stop counting trucks that are the same year or newer than mine with the rust patch in the same place, GM you are losing future buyers, I have been told several times that they will NEVER buy another GM, car or truck

as I read the posts on this forum about GM and their rust problems, I realize that we are all in this together, how can GM ignore and treat this huge block of GM owners with such a pathetic attitude, for the first time in my life, I bought a Honda and I had always said I wouldn't buy one of those, GM you had better smarten up, it is already gettin to late

well! the rust is back, this time on the rear door on the driver side, starting the same way as the passenger door, well GM congrats, my son got a Toyota Tacoma and my daughter got a Honda Accord. all I am getting is the sarcastic GM jokes. 2009 GMC Sierra Z71, 138000 KMS

to add insult to injury, I just got a letter from GM saying "as a loyal GM owner you can receive $1500 off on a new GMC Sierra" 1st off, they are highly over priced, and 2nd, once burned would you go back into the fire,I don't think so

Default 2009 GMC Sierra Z73 with 130,000 km

I am still waiting for the body shop to call to repair the bottom of the rear door on the driver's side, then this morning, when I tried to start it all I got was a click, it pulled the same trick at work about mid December and when it was connected for a boost it did click a few times but it did start, however this afternoon I still only get click, I did replace the battery after the first episode because it is 8 years old, I think I have narrowed it down to starter or connections as soon as I can get under it I will find out more,

is there anyone out there happy with their GM 1/2 ton???
title should read 2009 GMC Sierra Z71with 130,000km

last week, I replaced the starter because it was corroded, yesterday, gas was dripping off the box, problem was the pipe coming out of the sender unit rotted off, I have been negotiating on a 2012 Toyota Tacoma but the Sierra is rotting apart and has to run for more than a few days to get rid of it, should dump it on a GM dealer but they probably know all about these problems and wouldn't want anything to do with it. I know rotting brake lines are a problem, if only it would run long enough before that happens.
