Rust on roof 2012 Black Sand Pearl, any help from Scion?
I purchased a used 2012 XB about 4 months ago from a used car dealer in NJ about 20 minutes from my house and car looked nice with a few minor blemishes. I noticed one rust spot on the roof about the size of a pencil tip and made a mental note to to touch it up later. I ran it through a few car washes but it sits sometimes for weeks without moving in my driveway. Well I went to detail it today and do a few touchups from parking lot scratches from inconsiderate people and there are now about 35 rust spots like this on my roof. All over it not just one spot and one is almost the size of a dime.
I know I should have been on top of keeping it better but man 28 months since it was sold and paint is pretty well gone on the entire roof. Anyone else experience this?? I am guessing I am on my own as it will be blamed on "environmental issues" or something similar. I have had quite a few new and used vehicles but even my 17 year old GMC work truck which was shown no love at all and paint is still holding up better than roof of the XB is at a little over 2 years. I have almost 5 years of payments on this and at this rate I will have a convertible long before I pay it off.
