Default Same Bumper problem on 2009 TRX

I have the same problem on my 2009 TRX, a large number of chips resulting in rust beginning very soon after purchase. There is a very clear difference between td the lower bumper and the section on the grille immediately above the bumper. No damage there. I have never had a vehicle with so much damage in so little time. This is not normal wear and tear, even for the lower section of a front bumper where gravel can certainly cause some damage.

The dealer is basically saying there is no warranty on paint chips. This is more of a defective paint, or lack of proper protection on the paint. Yes, you can purchase aftermarket protection, but that should not be needed. The vehicle should come with reasonable quality protection.

Very unhappy about it.
