Silverado LS 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission

cab corner on driver side rusted out. Chevy dealer says not covered if truck has 100k or is 10 tears old. I have seen other trucks same year and style with same problem. Why did some rust and others didn't?

My truck has severe rust bubbles and visible round rust spots above the rear wheel well openings. It's really the only 1999 I've seen with this ugly problem !

The spots started as a small pin hole, then just bubbled from underneath, no previous repairs and original paint.
