Default scratches and rust already?

hey guys.. so i bought my truck in November and have put just over 11000km's on it.. im the type that as im walking to the truck im looking to see if there are any scratches or problems visible.. Sadly i have noticed A LOT of deep scratches a finger nail deep.. if any of you have experience with detailing you know thats bad and its right through everything... yes it is a black truck BUT this is also my 3rd black truck.. none of them had scratched this easy and I only bring it through touchless washes or i do it myself just like the other trucks i had.. I also noticed RUST starting on my rims near the edges by the tires... my tires are filled with nitrogen.. this wouldn't have anything to do with that would it?

- I dont do any offroading with it
- I have taken real good care of it
- there was a fair amount of snow this winter but that shouldn't scratch that easy
- washed it once a week

So my question is should I take it to the dealership and complain about them not putting enough sealant if any on? then tell them to fix the scratches and rust on the rims?
