Yea sure eh, hard to speculate. But I find the rust surprising. I don't carry anything in the back that could cause rust. I have a spare toque and gloves in the back, and the headrests, that's about it. No salty boots, no shovels.

My winter boots cause lots of havoc up front, that's primarily why I was washing out my interior today.
Maybe my headrests should move indoors too.
I have taken my Mirage to Krown rust control since I bought it new, so most of the car looks to be in extremely good shape. I did a fairly thorough inspection today.
The piano black plastic interior is fading a bit now, and the driver's seat cloth has seen better days; natural wear and tear, and fading, and McDonald's takeout stains. Mayo on my french fries and a stick shift.
