2002 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #2

May 152012

Silverado LS 4.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


Passenger side doors started to show orange/rust bleed through the white paint at about 8 years. Since it was only on the right side I assumed something went wrong. I searched the internet for a used set of extended cab doors and found all the wrecking yards graded them as having some rust repair required. Obviously I am not the only one with this issue.

problem #1

Silverado LS 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles

I bought this truck with 21,000 miles on it. Have traditionally been a Chevy truck guy, but feel this vehicle will be the final straw causing me to part ways with GM for good. The paint started showing signs of flaws fairly early on, but waxing managed to control it. Small dots of rust would pop through the paint. Now with 91K miles and six years under it's belt, the rocker panels have rusted through and the bed is not far behind. I had hoped GM had solved their poor body panel performance, but guess that's not the case. I realize I live in the rust belt, but I do take GREAT care of my truck! regular washes and waxes even in the winter. I feel rust through at 6 yrs is COMPLETELY inexcusable!
