    Default Rust spots on 2013

    I was looking closely at the drivers and passenger doors just above the molding at noticed lots of very small rust spots on my white XC70. I live in Iowa and understand the whole salt during the winter deal, but I've had white cars before and have never had this problem. Not sure what to make of it. I find it hard to believe that a 5 year old car is getting covered in rust spots. Would some cars be treated at the factory and some not for something like this?
    Thanks for any advice/help.

    If you could post a photo, it would help to pin down where the spots are, and maybe offer additional clues.

    Likely rail dust, not really rust:
