Ironsides is on a distinguished road

The same thing happened to me, on my passenger side front quarter panel, when I had about 30,000 miles on the truck. My dealership took some pictures, and sent them off to Chrysler, same as you. About a week later, they called, and said that they would cover the cost of repair. The body shop was going to sand down that part of the panel to bare metal, then paint and blend it in, but when they sanded through the paint, the panel had rusted through. It was only a 1/4" hole, but because Chrysler was footing the bill, they put on a whole new panel. The paint match was great, you wouldn't know it wasn't the original paint, which was impressive, given my truck is Brilliant Black Pearl. The body shop said it was likely caused by a drop of moisture stuck under the paint.
