Just thought I'd post an update...I went to the dealer yesterday and when the service advisor first came out to look at the car, he looked at the left front wheel and said it was "normal," but agreed the left rear was not. However, he wasn't sure if they would be able to do anything about it. So I just stuck with expressing that 26,000 is awfully low mileage for my wheels to be looking like that, even if it is normal for steel wheels to rust. I could understand it if I lived at the beach, but I don't, and my car has never been to the beach even on a vacation.I was also getting my warped moulding that comes out from the roof rack and goes toward the windshield looked at. Originally the owner of the dealership e-mailed me after I filled out the online service request form and told me they would have the part in stock when I got there, but then someone from the service dept called me back and said they thought they could fix it. I told them it was warped but he still said they could fix it so I said "oookay" and went on.So the service advisor gets outside and goes, "I don't know why they didn't order the part, it's warped, you can't fix that...I don't know why that person made that judgment without even seeing it anyway." Interesting. I have no idea who I talked to but I sure like this service advisor better than the one at the dealership I bought the car from.After they had looked at the car, he came back in and talked to me and told me they'd ordered the moulding and four steel wheels and they'd be in next Wednesday, more than likely. So they took care of me, and I'm happy that I've finally found someplace I can take the car where they don't just blow me off or think I'm some kid who's abusing my car and trying to get it fixed under warranty.My grandfather used to be the service manager at this dealership, so I figured they would be good, and I was right. And according to their service hangtag, they have "award winning service." Anyway, I'm happy, because this is definitely not normal for this mileage and age of the car, and I'm getting new wheels without even having to call GM.
