Hi folks.
i purhcased 2010 Escalade about 2 weeks ago and this car is awesome.
but i have a few queststions. i used to drive japanese cars and europian cars.
when i got my new baby, i noticed that my exhaust pipe got rusted. and i wend under and found out more rusts pieces. please see my undercarriage pics.
is this normal? i purchased new. obviously the car was sitting on a parking lot for a year w/ out any care. will this be a big problem later on?
oh. and lots of rail rust too. XD

Thank you all for replies.
i'll visit my dealer and tell my service advisor (who is really kind and straight forward).
to address some of your guestions, it had only 8 miles on the vehicle when i purchased it. so i guess "sitting" on a parking lot for a year really caused it. if ppl test drive the vehicle, (I think) it would have less.

and yes i think i didn't do my "due diligence". i checked all such as "electronics", "test drive" interior" "any unusual noise" and etc. except i forgot to check undercarriage. It was sold to me as "new". to be honeset, i never thought a year old "new" woudl have any rust. for next time, i'll def. check it out before i sign the paper.

Thank you all for your kind suggestions and opinions. i'll go talk to my dealer and see what we can do. =)

i totally agree with 2007caddy. every industry has lemon.
Thank you 2007caddy and hcvone.
i went to the dealer and my service advisor said it's normal.
well i guess i have to live w/ it. mine was built 6/10. so it's only 8 months old.
except the drive shaft and brake backing plates, everything is clean.
i did mentioned about rail dust and my sales person told me to bring it in anyday and he'll take care of it.
so comfy ride i love it!
