Your not entitled to a new car. The dealer is entitled to fix it if they deem its a warrantable defect. I bet the dealer pins it on you washing your car with product that stripes the clear coat or some bs like that.

If its early enough and your persistent enough, u could probably make it happen... I had a brand new 11 GT I brought it back 3 days later because it had bodywork I wasn't good about... It wasn't an easy task but I was beyond pissed and refused any solution they suggested and I refused to take the car back... After they got the BBB and attorney letters the next day, then they finally decided to work with me and get me in another car

Its rail dust it's pieces of metal that gets stuck in clear coat in transport and after a while it shows up as little spots of rust. I had it in my white 2010 gt500 I got used. I waxed all mine out

Clay bar does some amazing stuff. Glass cleaner and clay bar removes all. Fallout over spray tar

actually a tad surprised the dealer wouldn't have clay bared the car, they usually seem to do that specially on white ones.

The fact it is only showing up now is impressive too.

Seriously tho, a clay bar and an hour or two of your time and your done. If you want to keep your cars paint job in perfect shape you should consider claying the car 1-2 times a year. My car from the streets gets spots of tar and other gunk on it, clay bars are the only way it comes off without damaging the car or taking forever.

Even rubbing the clay bar over spots that look clean, will surprise you when you hold the clay and see how absolutely dirty it is.

Could be oxidation from pollutants and acid rain. My wife's white Pontiac G6 has the same issue. Mostly on the back of the car. Glad to hear clay bar works on this.

Hey man I work at a car place and have seen this same thing. A brand new silverado came in 1 day and I swore up and down it had rust all over it. It turned out not to be though. Try the clay bar. I got the stuff off the truck by taking a rugged sponge and some tar remover and some elbow grease and removed it after some hard work. I'm not positive what it is but i highly doubt it's rust with a new car. Best of luck!

I think the guy that said rail dust (metal) hit the nail on the head. The dealership sealed them to the car during prep. I've worked in nearly every auto plant in the mid west and the paint lines are a very controled environment, even Chrysler. Food plants are not as clean.
