I own a 2008 C300 4matic with around 30K miles. In the last few months I have noticed rust like specks, 1-2 mm, around the rear end and rear bumper area mostly. On more careful observation there are some also randomly scattered around the car.
My car is white so they are easy to see.
I live in the Cleveland area long winter, lots of salt on the roads, I also commute in an area that is industrial with lots of pollution.
The interesting thing is that these specks, are easily removed with a damp cloth. They do not seem to reoccur.
Is this rust or something else, and will it eventually damage the car?
And finally is this a manufacturing defect covered under warranty?
I apologize for the long posting,
advise/input greatly appreciated!
