I was checking about removing my foglamps and noticed that you can see the grey primer around the front of the fog lamps on my white 2011 cc sport. Piss poor work on factory painting.

As has been said before, claybar... brings them right off (sometimes you have to rub a little harder, just use lots of detail spray). I have a white truck and I freaked when I first noticed them, then I started seeing them on plastic parts so I figured it was something on the paint.

Thanks for the help, would've never thought of going with that. Never used it before.

Canadian tire here doesn't have any clay bars, and no real auto stores here. So sudbury Monday for work should be able to find some there.

I have a white truck(2011 and under 10k miles) and notice the same spots as you, all over the truck! can only see em when I get close, like when washing the the truck. They dont rub off! I am going to try clay bar.

But like you I think it looks like the rust is under the clear coat, cuz I can't even feel anything rubbing my finger or nail over the spots.
I have also began to notice a lot of other paint "mistakes"...
Let me know how it goes with the Dealer, I going to bring mine in in the next week or two as well

This is common, especially on white vehicles. It means your truck needs clayed. All that is is a paint contaminant. I am (was before the military anyway) a Professional Detailer. Its extremely common on lighter colored vehicles, even when new. Clay, or an abrasive compund will take it off. Claybar will work best without any damage to the paint. Save yourself the hassle, pay the $20 at autozone for a mother's california gold claybar kit, and spend a day doing a wash/clay/polish/glaze/wax/seal on your truck. You will be glad you did.

TRUST ME WHEN I SAY THE DEALER WILL DO NOTHING (EXCEPT MAYBE POLISH AND BUFF) AND YOU DO NOT NEED TO REPAINT YOUR TRUCK.

Thanks again everyone for the opinions, definitely going to the dealer for my "acne" problem on my tailgate though.

Trust me, it'll come off if you use a good clay bar kit. I've found a number of spots that look like they're under the clearcoat but they come off with the clay.

I personally use nothing but Griots products, have been for years. You can order them online. Their clay bar and detail spray can't be beat!

Well, the clay bar worked 50%

It did take off the minor so called "stains" but other than that those large rust spot looking dots are still hard in place. Ill try again tomorrow but the clay bar does an awesome job with the smaller stains.
Thanks guys for letting me know about this! Definitely a weekly/monthly routine I think. Wash clay & wax

Went to the dealer they said the tailgate and door will be repainted no problem at all! So happy about that just need to wait till I get home to take it in. Get them to get crysler to approve it and should be good to go.

The bumper, Im going to try and get them to repaint that too... hopefully
