Anyway, we're going way off the track. This thread was/is for SRV test drive.

I have been in chennai and my car too started rusting after 8 years of purchase and since i have shifted from there and moved to bangalore, i havent observed that issue.
This is not our only car we own and run in Chennai. We haven't faced such decaying in our other cars. Further I can understand if the car got rusted after 8 years as said in case of Rotorhead. It is barely 1.5 years old when we reported the problem to GM rep and dealer, though the problem might have started much earlier.

As this thread comes under category Test Drives and Initial Ownership Reports I though it is appropriate to share the same.

I remember someone else mentioning on the forum that his Optra's doors corroded within a very short while. GM carried out repairs free of cost.

Gm in Ahmedabad is very good in service and support. I have seen the salesperson's quality go down with time though. The pretty girls are nowhere to be seen. :P

But service is up there with the best.

Its surprising tosee this thread still up.
