rust on my 12 WK2

I just washed my 2012 GC Overland by hand the other day, and i noticed that it is covered in spackled rust spots(about the size of a pin) . Is this a defect in the paint? It's only 5 months old and has just 10k kms, hopefully this is a warrenty issue. Has anyone else had issue?

Re: rust on my 12 WK2

Welcome fellow Canadian!

This is normal due to all the salt they put on the roads during the winter. It's not a paint defect. It's just rush specs. They can be removed with a clay bar kit or cleaner wax. I did my whole Jeep the other day. It's a long process, lots of rubbing, but it's a must after our canadian winters.

Re: rust on my 12 WK2

google "rail rust"

very common and also very easy to fix. Tiny metal particles got into your clear coat, now they're rusting...not your truck.

like RageofFury said, clay bar will fix it. I just did it on my 5 day old Overland.
