  1. I have a 2014 GMC Sierra Carbon 22 with 81K miles. Love the truck, hate the frame rust! It's really sad to see GM used an oil based wax coating which lasts about 1 year in cold climates and allows rust to start. The entire frame has rust and these pictures only represent a small amount of the total rust. I remember reading an article by a GM engineer on the 2014 design team and stating this was the most rust resistant truck GM ever designed. The article helped me decide to buy this truck - https://media.gm.com/media/us/en/gm/news.detail.html/content/Pages/news/us/en/2013/Sep/0905-silverado.html I have a 2009 Vibe, a 2007 Saturn Vue, a 2011 Impala and a 2017 Impala with more miles in the same climate and none of them look this bad. I was planning on holding the truck 10 to 15 years as a daily driver and thinking of buying a 2019 C7 Vette this month but it looks like I'll have to put that on hold while I evaluate selling the truck before the rust get's too bad or to the point of structural damage. My friend bought a 2014 Tundra at the same time I bought this truck, his frame looks great and he has 160K Miles on it! Come on GM, you can do better! Powder coat or bond these frames with better rust protection than the cheapo oily wax that only lasts a year. Even the 2020 trucks use the same wax coating...
