Default Oil Pan Rusting and Seeping

Just bought a used 04 Monte, at the inspection they said my oil pan was rusting thru and slowly weeping oil, is this a common issue with MC ? Any suggestions on what to do ?

They are pretty common problems. Replacing the oil pan and gasket are your solution, but you have to drop the cradle to replace it.

It can get expensive depending on the shop's hourly rate.
