I was just looking over my 09 Acadia and noticed, that both sides near the bottom of the windshield and the front quarter panels I can see white! is that primer! and why in the hell I am able to see itif I look down into it and also both sides of the hood near the windshield they is also white visible. Will my car rust faster since there is no paint coverage on these spots? should I take it to the dealer? I am overwhelmed by this for 45,000

Rust proofed? Didn't know that you could still get that done. Is there really a need to have it rust proofed?

Haven't had a sales pitch for that in years. The vehicle warranty against rust is many years from what I recall.

yes I need it, they use salt very heavily in Canada. The warranty from gm is only 5-6 years? :-\

went to dealer and confirmed these spots where indeed missed in the factory paint stage! I advise all of you to inspect your vechiles carefully espically between front panel and windshield close to the plastic rubber piece that goes along the bottom front of windshield, they told me they have seen worse Acadia's and are know for spots missed with paint, the good thing is it still covered and protected with primer. I'm taking it in a few weeks to get the missed spots corrected only along the hood the other part is barely noticable unless you really look for it. :-\

do you guys think since it is primed but not painted will it rust between the front top of the quarter panel inside lip where it meets the windshield

they told me they would have to take off the whole front side panel to get at it to paint the missed spot and I am reluctant to go that far...what to do...

We have had a few members with unfortunate occurances with their Acadia's. One word of caution, since you have the Carbon Black Metallic it is crucial they use the right paint code and they spray it correctly. There are a few posts you should look at. There were some issues with the metallic matching.

I won't be spraying it it will be the dealer..so I need to make sure they do not get it wrong?

also how about "near the bottom of the windshield and the front quarter panels I can see white! is that primer!" if I leave it do you think it will rust because to paint that area they told me they would have to take off the whole front quarter panel

It's good to see that your dealership is going to take care of this; there have been some issues with metallic paint matching, but I would wait and see how things look when the job is done
