i think paintwork is 3years

when my old 2007 focus got to about 4yrs old, the paint was bad at the front, middle and back of the sill, the back being around the door and more stone chipped, but below the middle piller and front of the sill, the paint had basically just come away

you may also find rust bubbling just at the back arch, where it joins the bumper and if you look through the posts you will find a thread about rust in the boot area just beside where the water pipe comes in
- having just got my new car, the old one is still in my driveway till next week. i only read about the rust in the boot the other day and sure enough, on checking mine, it is just beginning

i dare say this area has been covered elsewhere, but being only new i'm not sure where best to point you ... im sure someone else will answer though
