I have a 2011 Terrain SLE2, just over 41,000km. Live here around Calgary, AB. A month ago when cleaning my vehicle's exterior I noticed areas of rust on the very bottom of the inside driver's door, all above the crimped seam. Also lots of bubbling paint that you could just flick off with you fingernail, exposing rust beneath. Doesn't look like any perforation/holes. Upon checking the other 3 doors, the same thing......though driver's door noticeably the worst.
Took into my dealership yesterday, basically told "sorry but you're SOL" as I've passed the 3 yr/60,000km base warranty period.......and the extended warranted I purchased when I bought this vehicle (bought it new end of year 2010), although is 7 yr/120,000km is ONLY for Powertrain.............have a nice day.
Upon doing some research online, I see that this is not an isolated problem w/ both Terrain and Chev Equinox and that many have reported this to GM but were all told "you're the first one to report this/this is the first time we've heard about this."
Anyone else experience this rusting issue?.........and if so, after you base warranty period had expired?..and what did you do?
From what I've read, those who were within the warranty period who had it fixed, it just continued to happen again.
Thanks for any info you can provide.
