    I was at the Car Show last weekend in Mundeline IL last Sunday. When a guy walked up and asked to feel my fenders. I answered "As long as you pull my hair" LOL:confused: He showed me his son's 2009 that is rusting around the rear wheel wells. The inners need to be taken out and the wells cleaned and rust proofed. There is a difference in the new inner wells.

    yeah, my 2008 never showed any signs of this issue and went through 6-7 NJ/NY winters. I think its something they started in 2009 with water being able to get trapped in there.
