Mine was built 4/19 and I’ve had it since 5/25. Truck has been washed weekly and waxed twice. Haven’t seen a failure (yet). Truck is still too new for accurate data from me.
The hood scoop area chipping reminds me of the issues around the third brake light on the GMT900’s. The light was installed too early on soft paint and the edges of the light dig into the roof. Have seen many trucks (at that time) getting entire roofs replaced under warranty if they got lucky enough for the truck to rot to a actual hole in the roof. As the corrosion warranty only covers through-rot.
Unfortunately, the damage was non appearance until it was too late in most instances.
My only peeling is the rock chip gaurd.Does anybody actually have 'peeling' paint on the hoods, indicating that once it starts it wont stop, or more to the tune of a few spots where the paint has been rubbed down to base metal between the scoop and the hood? Mine since new had minor 'rubbage' at the upper scoop corners and extremely slight (you would never notice if not looking) at the lower front corners. Now 2000miles later (with a decent amount of those bouncing around offroad) only the upper corner marks have grown slightly. Yeah it sucks on a brand new $75k truck, but there could be far worse to be dealing with. I'm not super concerned about it at this point since paint rubbed away between two adjoining surfaces shouldn't grow beyond a certain point of material flexibility limits. At least until the 'official' GM fix comes out, they touch up our hoods and we can then PPF.
From what I've seen on this forum regarding the rock chip guard issues, yes that would definitely concern me more. Luckily I have no sign of that. I wonder if its due to a later build date (8/22) where they had fixed the problem by then, or perhaps my high-clearance side steps keeping flying debris from jump starting the process.My only peeling is the rock chip gaurd.
