rust all around my 8 mos old 2002 MPV
I have just discovered speckled rust spots (as if someone had very lightly spray-painted pinpoint spots) on both sides of my Mazda on the base of the vehicle frame, yes the full length of the vehicle. You have to open the sliders and or front doors to see it. I was dusting door frames and just below the door sills when I noticed it. It is also present where the rear bumper connects to the main body of the van. I am devastated. I love this car, but if this is happening after only 8 months, it's a very bad sign of things to come. I bought the car new in October '02 with 31 miles on it. Did I get defective metal, defective paint job, a car that was in a flood? I am planning to go to both the dealer and to the Mazda corp simultaneously, but I'd appreciate any and all input as to how I should approach this situation. I can't believe this is happening. As I said, I love this car...
