Rust on the Forte!

9000 miles on the odometer and just over a year off the lot, there appears to be RUST under the paint on my hood. Now, some of you colder region dwellers may think cars come from the factory like this, but I assure you, they don’t.

For a such a new PNW car that is detailed/washed often to have rust under the paint is fucked. I will have to look into the warranty re: paint.

Yes, I know it is small. But there is no rock chip or other paint disturbance that I could see. Also, there ARE rock chips other places on the hood that are fine.
