2016 Nissan Quest rust on rear hatch #4671794

We've had our 2016 Quest SV since May 2017. We bought it used and it was a rental from Southern California in it's previous life. Technically, this was it's first Buffalo NY rust belt winter. Disturbingly, I have rust stains at both lower corners of the chrome piece on the rear hatch that's above the license plate area? It's been so cold and nasty out this winter, I haven't had the chance to dig into it, nor can I see any easy way to remove this piece to investigate if it's from the body or something behind the chrome piece.

Question is, has anyone heard of this as being an issue with this particular van?

I don't see 2012+ Quests often, but I've never seen one with even a spot of rust on it. Even on the older Quests for that matter. Here's a pic:

What did they use, regular steel bolts/screws that are now bleeding down?

Dale, that's what I'm hoping, but I haven't been able to have the van or the weather long enough to dig into it. I do not see any way to remove this strip. There are push buttons and lighting built into the bottom of it for the lift gate. No exposed fasteners on the underside.

Do former rental cars come with a factory warranty?

Agree with Nick-dealer time.

Last time I saw rust like that on a Quest like that, it had been in accident. Hoping that is not the case here....

This one was "certified used", with a 7yr/100K mile power train warranty. I also very reluctantly purchased a bumper/bumper contract that covers me until 120K miles. Thing is, none of this is for body rust, which is ALWAYS a pain in the arrrse with dealers. I went through it years ago with our first minivan, a 2001 Ford Windstar.

FWIW, we're at ~51K miles with the Quest. Bought it with 32K miles.

I have a 2004 Quest. It certainly has its quirks, but rust isn't one of them. I agree with others. Time to hit the dealer.

Sadly the manufacture's "rust" warranties usually only apply if there is "rust through perforation" of the sheet metal, not just rust on the surface or rust working through the metal but not yet perforated. I hope Nissan steps up and helps you. It's not right for a less than 2 year old vehicle to begin showing signs of rust, especially coming from California originally.

This is not uncommon for Nissan. The chrome plated plastic trim is rubbing against the painted sheet metal = rust. I have same issue on my 2013 Maxima, I removed the chrome piece, took a Dremel to the plastic and smoothed out the edge. Scraped off the rust, applied rust paint, waited for the stuff to dry, applied top coat. Install the chrome trim again.

The dealer should repair, but if they don't smooth out the edges of the chromed plastic trim piece, you'll have rust again.

Might be a repaint. I would inspect it for body damage and repair.

He'll still have the rust after the inspection. I don't suspect he can get his money back if it did have body damage.
