I'm too lazy to go back and see who said it but someone said that you already have a chevy and it has been pretty good to you so why not go back to them. As far as the rust thing, i think thats from the salt used when it snows up north of us (some of you northern guys correct me if im wrong). I have a uncle that owns a 2007 Dmax and he loves it and he did a butt load of research before even going to the dealership and looking. I don't know if you want a diesel or or not but I'm sure a 2500 gas would be fine.
