I watch it early today and said wow they even caught the rest and provided a look warning in their video.

I took possession of a new Lariat yesterday and it has the rust problem. My truck was built in KC, so it is not a plant specific issue. I pointed the rust out to the dealer and he had the general sales manager take a look at it and he immediately offered to clean it up and coat it to make it right. They gave me zero hassles about the issue which was refreshing. I have an appointment on Tuesday for them to take care of it... hopefully they do it up nicely.

That's. good dealership. From all I been reading Dearborn plant has been the worse. Didn't know much about complaints from the K.C. plant. Thx for the post.

It seems like the rust is more specific to DB rather than KC? Several of the later posts had max tow and no rust. Could the rust be more specific to an axle gear ratio or traction control configuration?

Mine was built in Dearborn.

I have max tow. And rust. And Dearborn. Dealer cleaned up most of it but still have some towards the ends there the axle hits the wheel.

Did you use a flat black, semi or gloss black?
