Thanks, let me ask would you take it to the dealer to complain, or is it a waste of time. I believe it should not happen so soon. Since I only have the car for 16 months. Also it has to be more rain getting in there than snow. Since it rains alot more than snow. your thoughts?I just checked my 2013 LE, no rust, but I am sure that there might be some that has now migrated into visibility yet..I live in the NE, on Long Island, NY where they use salt in the winters.
If I had found rust like yours, I would remove the screws and try to lift up the hinge just enough to pass a paper towel sheet between the hinge and the body and see if any rust came off onto the paper towel. If so, I would spray some PB Blaster Corrosion Stop onto the towel and keep passing it between the space until the towel comes out clean and rust-free. Now, spray the PB Blaster Corrosion Stop into the area between the hinge and the bodyand wipe off excess. The PB Blaster Corrosion Stop will protect the metal and leave a protective film on the applied surfaces.
