: Rust on the top of my escalade!

I was cleaning my 07 black escalade today and noticed that there was something that looked like a paint chip or the paint flaked off near where the windshield meets the roof and now the metal under it is rusted :mad:. The paint around it also looks discolored, it has a blue halo around the rusted area.

Anyone know if this is covered under warranty? I read online that the rust warranty is 6 yr or 100,000 miles?

This should be something to take care of before the possibility of the damage spreading through the rest of the roof correct?

That's the warranty ... only problem is the service writer you get....

They are real good at labeling things a "rock chip" or something saying it's wear and tear not covered .. blah blah blah ...

But .. you got nothing to lose by taking it in....and fighting if they tell you NOT covered.

Back in early 2008 when I got my new 08 ESV I noticed a spot/hole between the sunroof and front windshield...

Took it to the dealer, they said they couldn't do anyhting about it...

In the past few years it's been rusting like a MOFO!
