: 02 Escalade common rust areas?

06-11-13, 12:14 PM

I just picked up a low mileage 02 Escalade and have a question. I live in Michigan so it's a pretty harsh environment in the winter. The Escalade is really clean underneath, however, I know all vehicle platforms have the propensity to rust in certain areas.. I had several GM trucks so I know the common spots there. Any other spots I should be aware of? I see the bottom of the lift gate (opposite of the sill) has some bubbling paint.

Mine has corroded on the very rear frame crossmember (under the rear bumper) pretty badly, it looks like it is a replacable bolt on part though.
