I have had the car since new, and detailing is a hobby of mine, so I go over every inch of the car fairly frequently. Although I don't get to it as often anymore now that I have a son which is probably why I didn't notice the rust sooner....

But your comment might have some merit as it appears that there might be some yellow Bondo in the area, but I would have to go out and look at it again to be sure. I wouldn't think Bondo would be on a brand new car from the factory unless something had happened between the factory and delivery that needed to be fixed....
