    I have a 2006 chevy silverado 2500HD with 71,000 on it.The clearcoat is all peeling on the hood and is flaking off the fender flares which are the same color as the truck.I am the second owner of the truck and the truck has never had any body work done or been painted.Is that something GM covers?

    Doubt it but I would start with a call to the dealer and a Google search for any paint related recalls. Odds are you'll have to cough up few grand to get it repainted.

    How about posting a picture or two. Not trying to be a smart ass but has it "acid rained" on the truck

    don't waste your time with dealer....call gm customer service and file a complaint get a complaint number....last time it happened they paid for repaints but only after enough complaints

    A friend of mine that works at a body shop during the winter months told me that they do a lot of touch up as well as partial & complete paint job's on GM cars and trucks from the early 2000's, my 03 2500HD should've had a paint job a couple of years ago.

    This happened to the hood on my 2008 HD. Second owner also, took it back to the dealership, they wouldn't touch it.

    Friend of mine recommended a gmc dealership, so I took it to them, they took pictures and said they would call me back.

    2 weeks later, they called and said they would pay half, my part $315. This was even after calling chevrolet.

    Take to a smaller dealership.

    Oh the selling dealership said, its 4 years old and has 50k miles on it.:dizzy:
