GM White Paint: Express/Savana Vans

Hi, does anyone know if and when GM figured out their issue with white paint on the passenger and cargo express and savana vans?

I am looking to purchase a used express/savana and have been avoiding the white color because of the known issue GM had with this paint/primer combo.

I found a nice 2013 Savana near me but it is white and I have all but ruled it out. If someone can confirm that GM corrected the issue by 2013 I may give it another thought.

The van shows no signs of issues but I know it can take a while for the paint to start peeling.

I can't say, I'll just mention that my 2000 van didn't start failing until about 2 years ago. Mostly on the roof so rattle can rustoleum is what I've been using. I don't really care what it looks like up there, just so it doesn't rust.

The problem wasn't just on the white ones, It may seem that way because there are more white ones out there. AFIK they haven't figured it out yet. But most of the GM "peelers" are between the late 80's-early 90's, and around 2006. All manufacturers had this trouble to a degree. (about the time they swapped over to waterborne)
