...that "rusting" should be covered under these "Limited Warranty" items:

New Vehicle Limited Warranty
Sheet Metal:
Corrosion coverage is for the first 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Rust-through coverage is for the first 6 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

...so, it might come down to whether they call it corrosion or rust-through.

...looks sorta like the wrong screws (ie: non-galvanized or non-plated) were used.

...whatever you do, do NOT simply "paint over" those rusty screws as they sit, entombing the rust under whatever 'sealant' you use (Rust-Stop™, etc.), because if you do, they're rust-in-place and you'll never be able to remove them (should a lamp burn out) without dynamite.

...just went and checked the wifes' LTZ and all four screws are bright and shiny, like SS (but I'm not 100% sure).

...of course, this is sandy Arid-Zona, not Snow-land Canada.

Exterior-use Stainless Steel (expensive) and Galvanized (less-co$tly) screws do NOT rust--cheap steel screws not intended for exterior-use DO rust!

Apparently GM, Lordstown, OH, can't tell the difference?
