Unhappy Rust on my '10

After all the threads about rusty bumpers, rusty side steps, etc. I thought I had made it through unscathed and yesterday I found some... can't even bring myself to say it... rrrust on some of the rivets at the front of the bed.

Luckily I have an awesome service manager at an awesome dealership so I'm not to worried about it... but still... who the heck expects rust on a vehicle that hasn't seen it's first birthday yet?

Wow, that is quite a surprise. I'd be getting that in for rustproofing as soon as possible. What does the dealer have to say about it ?

It should be under warranty..........
On a side note, I have noticed small spots of rust on my rear bumper. Seems to be the latest fad for these 4th gens.

The picture is not that clear, I thought I had rust too, at first glance. It was the glue from the rubber, looks very close to what yours looks like.
