    Default 2004 Chevrolet Silverado rust problems , Silverado parts

    Anyone else out there having issues with the paint bubbling under the doors? Not sure...might want to check!

    I have a 2004 Silverado LT that has the paint bubbling under the passenger door.

    This is not because of lack of maintenance and proper cleaning. I keep my vehicles extremely clean and waxed.

    Took it into the dealership and they informed me that they would fix it is not covered under any warranty! Nice! Cost for chevy parts would be approx $200 and it is not guaranteed because they know it will bubble again!

    After talking with the body shop manager he said this is quite common in this these silverado trucks

    Nice huh?

    Do you have any photos of this problem? Have you tried to protest the decision of the GM dealer that they won't cover it?

    They wonít cover it unless itís rust threw the body panel, not the paint.

    Good luck getting them to fix it free.

    Hmm, doesn't it depend on what happened to the paint? There are some provisions for defective paint I thought.
