Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Rust on Paint?!

One of my Chrome tow hooks is rusting already on my Overland. Getting replaced.

He meant real rust doesn't do that.

I have a White Summit. Clay bar, then Wax. Wax often, then the specs comes off with a hand wash. just tiny specs of metallic dust sticking to the paint then "rusting"

All colors get this issue, it is only easily visible on light colors though.

Your options are to either clay bar the car for 6 hours or to pick up a iron remover such as Iron-X. Use the Iron-X first, then clay bar, then wax and seal. Car will be good as new.
What MOF said....If you live where it snows a lot in winter, this will be a spring routine. White & silver get it the worst because it's so easy to see on those colours.
