Default Anyone experience early signs of "rust'

Hi all,

I am just curious if anyone has experienced any early signs of rust anyone on the Terrain body. I just noticed some rust corrosion on the driver's door panel which I plan on bringing to the dealership in the hopes of getting it resolved. This should not happen on a a new car such as this. I will have to do a more exhaustive search this weekend to see if there are other signs.

Paul

That is really weird. You shouldn't have rust at all, unless someone hit/scratched your door and it was deep enough to get past the paint and expose the metal. Or a rock chip that went deep.

Any update on the situation?

I am taking the vehicle in tomorrow for a couple of items and will identify this issue with the dealer. I hope to get a resolution. I should take a picture of the spot I am referring too. :-)

Hopefully, I can post a link to a photo given my limited post count at this point.

Cheers,
Paul

It's going to be fixed entirely under warranty. The car is booked in for this upcoming Tuesday and I will be provided with a rental for the duration while the vehicle is at the GM body shop.

Awesome! How did everything go, would like to see pic's. Before and after pic's would be even better if you have the before pic's.

Was it hard to get the dealer to take care of the issue?

I didn't take any before pictures and I also didn't take any after pics. I could take some, but would make no sense right now since it is winder and most of the time the car is pretty dirty.

Everything went smoothly....rental was paid for by dealer, and no issues with the dealer taking care of the issue. I didn't even have to bat an eye for them to fix it either.

Congratz well that was simple but for sure it makes no sense for a car this new to have any sort of rusting at all!

congrats on getting it fixed and them being really cooperative. but it still doesnt answer why it started rusting in the first place. im sure more than enough terrain owners are curious and would like to find out themselves.

I wish I had an answer for you on this one. :-) The location seem really odd too....

Two areas on a Terrain that rust may occur. The seams along the lower panels of the front and rear door -- road salt and sand collect here. Open the doors when washing! The other is under the chrome plate on the rear door of the Terrain.
