It's everywhere not just ford, everything from cars to toasters, nothing's built for quality now or very little.

It'll still be under warranty take it back and kick up hell.

As above, anything that's out of sight isn't given more than a token covering of paint, just enough to stop it corroding in the factory. It's the same with all manufacturers. If it bothers you the only option is to clean it up and paint it yourself. The rear drums on my 2010 hatch were well rusty when I bought it and were very visible through the 5-spoke wheels so I've cleaned them up and painted them black.

the suspension components etc are not galvanised, if you want paint them with black hammerite paint,
