: 05 Escalade Paint Peeling?.

Hi All,

I've been a lurking member for a while and finally have something to post about (yay? maybe..)

I have a black 2005 Escalade with 25k miles on it, still covered under the factory warranty

Today I noticed that the paint on the roof is -peeling- on two of the rails, located between the front and rear doors, closer to the driver side of the vehicle.

I have never carried anything on the roof, and never do anything but wash up there (by hand). I noticed it today, so it must have come on suddenly (in the last 3 weeks or so).

Has anyone ever heard of this? Is it a dealer issue or should I expect them to point to me and call it my issue?

I live in Seattle, so salt and environment arent really an issue (mild climate). I take it to the Bellevue Cadillac dealer for service religiously. It's due to go in next week, as a matter of fact.

Thanks

Tim



Any advice, experiences would be appreciated.

I think the paint was covered by the 3/36 deal but if you take your Cad to the dealer for every service they should cover it under a warranty just because you loyal to the place.

They should cover it under the paint warranty unless they determine the truck was in some sort of accident and had been improperly repainted.

It hasn't been in an accident, unless my wife is hiding something from me. :)

Should be covered, although I would not want the dealer painting my truck, the factory does a bad enough job as it is. :(

I live in Vancouver, WA where it rains, etc all the time. On both my Escalades, I have no problem with paint.

The dealer should fix it under warranty with that year of truck and low miles you got there.
