My 2014 Silverado has rust bubbling up in both rockers already

It had 31 miles on it. (Great idea) I live 1 hour south of Chicago so they do salt the roads but I have a heated garage and keep it clean year round. I will take pics tomorrow and put them up for everybody to see. 

I know it doesn’t help the situation but your not alone and GM is not the only manufacturer with rust issues. Look at Ram. Still I’d be pissed too..

My 14 Silverado with 32k miles on it also has the rockers and cab corners bubbling up pretty bad.  Probably rusting from inside out the same as my 04 did with around 40k miles but just over the 6 years.  Hopefully my 14 will be covered under warranty.  Very disgusting for a $45k truck

My 14 brownstone Silverado did the same thing on both sides.  Took it to dealership and they replaced both rockers and cab corners under warranty.  Took 2.5 months but gm covered it.  Rusted from the inside out.  They said something about the foam inside was holding all the moisture in.   I just got it back last week.  It had 33k miles on it

I have a 14 Sierra crew cab, I'm in MA so plenty of salt, and my rockers looked worse than that last summer (2018), but at 110k at that time GM wouldn't cover it.  My last truck (05 1500hd) bubbled like this at 7yo about 170k.  

Seems to me the quality of the steel is continuing to get worse. 

There all made out of recycled Pepsi cans now!

I think with any type of metal, it’s over recycled. 

I think that has a huge part of why things are rotting. Then again, if proper metal prep procedures are done prior to painting, this shouldn’t happen...

 

goes with steel, iron, copper, etc. the quality isn’t there anymore.
