Just brought My 2005 CTS out for the summer and discovered the back passenger fender has rust showing through. It seems to start at the bottom of the gas cap and is around the fender well and also where the bumper meets the metal on the side as well. NOT HAPPY

Re: Rust Issues
Looks like you missed the ride on this train by 2 years
Copied from Cadillac's website;
CORROSION PROTECTION Cadillac vehicles are designed and built to resist corrosion. All body and sheet metal components are warranted against rust for 4-years or 50,000-miles1, whichever comes first. Any sheetmetal that actually rusts through, causing an actual hole in the sheetmetal, is covered for up to 6-years or unlimited-miles. Application of additional rust-inhibiting materials is neither necessary nor required under the Sheet Metal Coverage. See your Cadillac dealer for terms of this limited warranty.
Sorry yours didn't survive the elements like it should have...Where was this vehicle stored?
