Default Rust on new jimny 2018

Hello
Just bought a new 2018 jimny from the company and after 10 days I checked the engine visually and found rust on some places ( see images) can anyone explain this ? Should I claim my money back / car replace ?

did anyone noticed such rust on a new jimny ?
Thanks for any advice
Dror

Hello again (different forum).
Honestly, that's quite normal for an exhaust manifold, nothing to worry about.
Just put a little grease or waxoil on the steering joint rust just stop it. The spline wouldn't have been painted to allow for fitting.

As Darrell says, nothing to worry about.

Thanks very much indeed Darrel
I was wondering if its better to let them treat the rust or to replace the infected parts.
If you look closely on the exhaust manifold image you'll notice that there are cracks on the metal due to the rust , should i replace it ? will it get worse over time ?
Its very weird that i need to deal with such things on a brand new Jimny !
Didn't have the chance to enjoy the car yet

I'll admit on closer inspection things do look a little suspect. I doubt if it cracked as I think these are cut from thick steel plate, I would voice your opinion to the dealer and hopefully they will take the heat shield off for a better look. The suspect areas are right where the bolts are.

Indeed it looks a little suspect . I will tell the dealer to take it off and replace the part as it should not be in a brand new car. I Don't think that treatment will help here, it should be replaced. Do you know if its a complicated process to take it off and replace it ?
Big thanks for your help and opinion.

It's just a fact, that as soon as steel is exposed to oxygen, iron oxide, or rust
begins to form.
All steel manufacturers and welders/metal fabricators know this and take steps to prevent it where applicable.
In areas where the humidity is high, it happens much sooner than dry, arid locations.
Coastal areas especially suspect.

See Wikipedia.

It looks like castings, but hard to tell from the picture.

Should i notify the dealer about this
Is there something to do to make it disappear and prevent future issues ?

None of these areas are a problem. The cast components will soon rust with no protection but don't rust up like steel plate IE: surface rust that forms straight away but very slowly gets worse. I see most of the rust is on areas that have been machined faced before assembly. Again if it was mine i'd give them a coat of waxoil. Have a moan, they may clean the areas and coat them for you.
