Rust spots?

Wed Sep 22, 2021 11:24 am

I have a Pearl White 2018 PHEV. I've noticed some small rusty looking spots all over. We always park in our garage.

The dealer says it's not rust - but that it's some residue from the spray on our roads here in BC, Canada. But none of my other vehicles have these spots. Any of you have this on your car?

Given that this is plastic, rust appears to be rather unlikely.

Could be rust spots from some small embedded metal articles, e.g. from grinding nearby.

Sounds like iron contamination. You need to use something like this
