Default 2019 GMC Corrosion PI0281Gl

I just purchased a new GMC 2500HD at Allen GMC in Orange County Ca. A week after delivery I discovered the entire underbody of the truck was covered with dried Road Salt. I did not inspect the underbody prior to purchase because I didn't think I had to. To make things worse GM is well aware of the issue. In April 2018 GM issued Bulletin PI0281G (attached) to Dealers. So GMC builds this beautiful truck, then they take it out in to a storm on roads covered with a corrosive chemical (road salt). They don't bother to wash it off they just ship it out to a Dealer. In my case California. You should know as the temperature increases so does the rate of corrosion. Having grown up in the "salt belt" Wisconsin I know the extreme damage done to vehicles by Road Salt. So GMC in an effort to cover their tracks notifies Dealers of the issue and instead of a discount or compensating customers they just say "that's the way it is. No consideration for damage will be made other than normal warranty coverage" . To me there is something very wrong with being aware of major corrosion damage to a vehicle and not disclosing that fact to the buyer! It would be different if they delivered a new vehicle to me and I covered it in salt, but, I didn't get the chance to even get it over the curb the damage was done pre-delivery. I pursued a vehicle replacement through the dealer and GM Customer Assistance but GM is refusing to replace the vehicle. Buyer Beware! Inspect the underbody of your vehicle before purchasing! I will post an update when I have it but the bottom line is I'm not getting stuck with this corroded junker. I bought a new truck and I expect to get one

You better get something done, When I complained about my 2009 GMC Z71 because the paint was coming off the bottom of the doors, I was told that I was under the mileage warranty but 6 months over the time warranty, there are similar complaints on this forum. Last year, I started parting ways with GM, replaced my Buick with Honda Accord but I am stuck with the Z71 because it isn't worth much otherwise it would be gone,
