Surface Rust On 2009 Is250

Recommended Posts

After a pretty rough winter here in Iowa, I noticed some surface rust today while washing my car, mainly behind the wheels on the body and towards the bottom of the car doors. I was able to vigorously scrub most of them out, however, I was wondering if any of you suggest any polish or wax i should use to eliminate this problem and prevent it from recurring.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

The car has a good warranty regarding rust. I'd suggest going to the dealer and making a claim before you try to take care of it yourself.

Wasn't aware that rust was covered under the warranty. Is this only for the duration of the bumper to bumper warranty? Or does it only apply if you had the car rust proofed by the dealer?

Yeah, the corrosion warranty is a seperate warranty, but comes with the basic warranty. It's for 72 months no matter the mileage I believe. I'm sure if you go the the Lexus website they would have this info listed. In fact, here I just did it for ya, click on this http://www.lexus.com/models/ES/warranty/index.html
