"Rail dust" on my rig - wtf
Ashley2013 posted a topic in Vehicle Appearance, Care, & Maintenance2013 GMC Sierra 1500, I bought it brand new less than a year ago, 16,000 miles, white... Noticed rusty specks all over it last week after washing it. Drive to dealership, "oh yeah, that's rail dust. Nothing we can do about it. You need to just wash it off and then wax it to prevent it from happening again." WTF! It looks like crap! Any chance there is a TSB out there that says the dealership has to clean it within a certain timeframe?! Chrome bumper is also all rusty where it's bolted on in the front. I pointed that out while I was there, and lo and behold, there is a recall on those, they will replace the bumper. I wanted them to replace it with a painted bumper, but they can't, only can replace it with the same thing. Handy. The rubber piece on the extended cab window, on the bottom of the window, is falling off too. I missed my Ford the day I traded it for this thing... So, GMC folks, any help getting me some backup to try to get the dealership to wash the rail dust off? It goes in Wednesday for the bumper replacement and the window piece. It would be nice if they would clean the rail dust off and wax it while it's there.
