the rust is between the paint and the metal surface, there are no holes just ugly looking rust patches, there are no cracks or chips out of the paint, it just rusts under the paint until a big piece of paint falls off, kind of takes you back to the Torino in the 70's

well, I was hoping to get a couple more years out of this truck which now has 140,000 km on it, now I see rust coming through on both rear wheel wells and on 1 front wheel well, also the inside edge of the drivers door breaking out, I guess it is time for the duct tape body job, I now believe it would be a waste of time and money going to a body shop, the red and grey duct tape should be a nice trim on a dark blue truck

looks like GM is still having lots of problems, wonder how they will last when a lot of people are very unhappy with them

After owning several GM vehicles I made the plunge, I dumped my 2012 Buick Verano and got a Honda Accord Sport, If my 2009 Z71 was worth anything I would have dumped it as well. I will run it for as long as I can, it only has 150,000 km, as for the rust I will get a can of bright orange Tremclad rust paint and cover it that way, It will look like hell but I will smile when people ask me why.
